ARTICLE by Laura M. Brotherson, Meridian Magazine

Sexual intimacy is one of the most beautiful experiences that a husband and wife can share. Without necessary preparation, though, it can be one of the most difficult aspects of marriage to navigate. The question many young people have is what concrete steps they can take to prepare for a sextraordinary relationship in marriage while still single and keeping the law of chastity.

This article is an excerpt from Chapter 1 of Laura's new book From Honeymoon to Happily Ever After: 23 Keys to Prepare for a Sextraordinary Marriage.
