In this episode of the Intimate Marriage Podcast, Alexandra Stockwell, MD, explores the profound effect that a loving and intimate parental relationship has on children. Alexandra highlights the naturalness of affection within the family setting, and describes the astonishment of those who have never witnessed such intimacy between their own parents.
This episode stresses the importance of nurturing the spousal relationship for its own sake and also as a gift to one’s children. She also challenges the traditional notion that children should always come first at the expense of the couple’s connection.
Also in this episode:
- A strong marital bond is essential for providing children with a positive model for their future relationships.
- Prioritizing the relationship with your spouse does not detract from your children; rather, it benefits them by demonstrating a healthy, loving partnership.
- Intimacy and affection in front of children, when natural and appropriate, contributes to a nurturing family environment.
- It’s important to find a balance between focusing on your children and nurturing your marital relationship. Doing so supports the healthy development of a child’s identity.
