How Sex Can Be Used as a Stress Management Technique
Has your spouse ever come home and unleashed their work related stress on you? It usually looks like them complaining, being extremely irritated by everything you say or do, being really snappy, maybe not eating, or even going to bed early. It typically leaves you wondering what the hell did you do to deserve that type of treatment. When they have that type of frustration, it is easy to take it out on those closest to them. We take for granted that they love us enough to just accept our bad behavior. There are, however, some ways to help your spouse relieve the work related stress while igniting your marriage at the same time.
