Take a few moments to discuss the following with each other
- How does the scientific fact that sex causes a neurological link between lovers challenge the popular view of sex as mere recreation? How does it challenge my views about the significance of sex?
- Were you aware that “sex is the sacramental stuff of marriage”? What do you think about the idea that your marital sexual lives are supposed to play a role in helping you become spiritually healthier and holier people?
- Does it surprise you that the things that sustain a healthy sex life in marriage are different than the things that drive a sex outside marriage? How does this fact challenge your ideas about what it will take to have a healthy, holy, lifelong marital sexuality?
- What does it change about your views of sex to recognize that while sex outside of marriage is, by nature, self-protective, sex in marriage is meant to be free, total, faithful and fruitful?
