"Straight Talk about Strengthening Marriage!"
September 22, 2009 -- Newsletter #35www.StrengtheningMarriage.com
by Laura M. Brotherson
Characteristics of a healthy sexual relationship in marriage include mutual fulfillment, open communication, a satisfactory frequency of intimate relations, and emotional connection beyond the bedroom.
How would you define a healthy sexual relationship in marriage? While there may be a number of ways, the following represents my definition of a healthy sexual relationship:
How Many Fit?
The Women's Information Network (The WIN) -- "The Online Home for All Women, All Ages" -- is the premier media and social network for women. The WIN is strengthening women and families worldwide with a team of nearly 200 show hosts who are experts in their field covering nearly every imaginable subject.
The WIN will have hundreds of audio/video shows, well-written articles, safe social networking, The WIN Store, offline Conferences and Retreats, and much, much more! WIN participants can expect to: Get Solutions ~ Share Ideas ~ and Really Connect!
I have been asked to join this great organization as the host of a weekly online audio show entitled "The Marital Intimacy Show."

The Marital Intimacy Show
The previous radio show segments "Sexual Intimacy in Marriage" that I did with Dr. Liz Hale recently reached over 100,000 downloads on iTunes. You can listen to them or subscribe here. I hope our new Marital Intimacy Show podcasts will provide even more valuable insights to help couples strengthen their marriages intimately.
TV Show Appearance
If you are in Utah, tune your television to KSL Channel 5 on Friday, September 25th from 11 a.m. -12 noon for my second appearance with host Brooke Walker on Utah’s KSL “Studio 5” show. We will be discussing the "Characteristics of a Healthy Sexual Relationship in Marriage."
Family Home Evening -- one night a week to spend time as a family -- is a great idea to strengthen any family. In the fun new book Famous Family Nights by Anne Bradshaw I have written a chapter entitled "This Is The Night We've Waited For," and share a little bit of our family's fun with Family Home Evening.
Touching, inspiring, and often hilarious, the personal experiences in Famous Family Nights highlight Family Home Evening as a priceless tool for building strong, faith-centered families, despite the many obstacles of modern life. Other contributors like me sharing their stories are LDS entertainers, writers, radio and TV personalities, as well as LDS leaders in sports, business, and the community.
Famous Family Nights is now available at the Strengthening Marriage Online Store, so get your copy today and learn some great new ideas for strengthening your family.
