I Have Found So Much More Intimacy Than I Ever Thought PossibleUp untill I met my present wife,I never knew how strong,and how deep intimacy could be.After 14 very short years of marriage to her-my third wife,
I've never felt so loved,and truly cared for till We got married.I married her,knowing full well, just how many challenges we faced together.
She has Spina-Bifida,and was born with disability
I knew going in-that we'd probably never have much in the way of a sex life,but I'd already been there done that to the point of never caring,if,
or when I ever had sex,again,truth be told I needed a rest from it all.
I really love just caring for her,and looking after her needs,and over our years together we've gotten so close,that she can even tell when I'm only thinking of
starting to get into mischief!I love her more than life itself, because I know she truly loves me,and to me--that's all that really matters.
I can sense when she's getting hungry,or when she needs anything else,for that matter.
Intimacy-is not the rudimentry touching that an ape might try,
it goes so much deeper into my soul,for example,when I'm away working,and I call to see how she's doing-and there's no answer-I almost immediately
go into panic mode-wondering what's wrong,what if she's hurt-or fallen down in the apt.-or whatever.
This,to me-is what I know,as closeness,and intimacy.The root of it all-is caring for one another-every moment of every single day.
