Can marriage survive without intimacy? Intimacy is one of several ingredients in the making of a successful marriage. A lack of it is often among the first tell-tale signs of a failing marriage; and while a few couples out there believe otherwise, I do believe that NO marriage can survive without intimacy and the earlier a couple begins to take steps to rekindle the romantic blaze that once existed between them, the better they'll enjoy their relationship.

Sit back and consider again: 'Can marriage survive without intimacy? '

Do you feel resentment for your spouse? What issues bring about this resentment? It is important for couples to dedicate time to do provide all these answers individually at first and then sit down together with their responses and work out their differences. Always remember that intimacy begins with communication and is based on trust. After all this, ask yourselves one more time: 'Can marriage survive without intimacy?
