The 6 Pillars of Intimacy: The Secret to an Extraordinary
- Emotional Intimacy
This Pillar involves a closeness created through sharing each
other's feelings, thoughts, and desires.
This is both verbal and non-verbal communication. It’s more than
just, “Can we talk?”
- Physical Intimacy
Think of this Pillar as every type of loving touch. This can be
holding hands, a hug, a kiss, or even cuddling.
You were designed to be touched. It's answering the question, "How
do you like to be touched?"
- Financial Intimacy
This Pillar is the sharing of your financial situation.
It's developing a plan for your finances, from how much you spend
on date night, to joint accounts, to planning for retirement. This
is more than,
"We need to talk about the budget..."
- Spiritual Intimacy
Think of this Pillar as religious beliefs and observed religious
practices. This can be as simple as praying together, going to
church together, or discussing
spiritual issues as a couple. This answers the question, "How are
we spiritual together?"
- Recreational Intimacy
What you do together at home, or on dates, or just for fun, is what
this Pillar is about. It's the plans the two of you make to spend
time together, doing things you enjoy. When this is working, you
don’t sit in the
driveway playing the "What do you want to do?" game.
- Sexual Intimacy
This is the Pillar that encompasses everything about your sexual
connection with your spouse. This can be romance, initiating,
foreplay, and sexual intercourse.
There’s no two ways about it: Sex is h-e-a-l-t-h-y. But this
intimacy goes way beyond, "Hey, wanna have sex?"
