#341: When Staying Married Feels Impossible

Circumstances in Laurie’s life started triggering her memories of childhood sexual abuse. Her lifelong struggle with same-sex attraction flared.  Alone on a silent retreat, she recommitted herself to God and to her husband Matt.  But she wasn’t sure she would ever be able to be sexually intimate with him again. 

Matt wanted a marriage with the comforts of sexual intimacy and to be pursued physically by his wife, yet he knew forcing Laurie to do either would not only be ineffective, but unchristlike as well.  This marriage felt impossible.

Does your marriage feel impossible, too? Find hope here.

Guests: Matt and Laurie Krieg
