In this episode of The Intimate Marriage Podcast, Alexandra Stockwell, MD talks about the challenges of connecting intimately with your spouse when you have young children and how to rekindle intimacy in marriage.
This is a topic that many couples struggle with, especially those who have newborns up to 12 years old. Alexandra also shared some tips on how to rekindle intimacy in marriage and how to make the most of the time you have with your partner and how to nourish your emotional intimacy through non-sexual physical touch.

- The average couple spends less than four minutes a day talking about anything other than children and logistics
- Distinguish between things that are urgent and important
- Create a culture of affectionate touch that is not necessarily sexual
- Non-sexual physical touch can nourish emotional intimacy and rekindle intimacy in marriage.

About Alexandra Stockwell, MD
My mission is to change the cultural narrative around long-term relationships from one of ongoing stagnation and compromise to the delectable joy and deep gratification a couple feels while building passion and excitement on a daily basis.
For over two decades, I have been guiding men and women to bring pleasure and purpose back into all aspects of life— from the daily grind of running a household to creating ecstatic experiences in the bedroom!
I embarked on this journey not only for my patients but for myself and my own relationship. I wanted more for my life and my marriage than logistics, and discussions about childcare.
