You may have heard about other couples scheduling sex and dismissed the idea as ridiculous - but did you know that scheduling sex is actually very beneficial for your marriage? It may seem like a strange idea at first, but there are many benefits to scheduling sex with your spouse. Let’s take a closer look at the 5 best reasons you should be scheduling sex with your husband or wife.

Regular intimacy improves your relationship

Intimacy is essential for a healthy and long-lasting relationship, and having regular sex is one of the best ways to encourage more intimacy in your relationship. Regular closeness through sex helps you and your spouse build an emotional and physical connection and keep it strong as the days, weeks, months and years go by in your married life.

It ensures your intimate needs are prioritized in a relationship

One of the most important things in a healthy marriage is being able to prioritize you and your spouse’s need for intimacy. It can be very easy for this type of need to become less prioritized over time, especially if you have children, so regularly scheduling sex sessions is a great way to ensure that the priority doesn’t gradually decline over time.

Scheduling becomes essential if you have kids and/or busy lives

If you have kids or a busy work schedule, then you already know how easy it can be for something like sex to fall by the wayside. You get too tired after taking care of the kids all day or you find that you’re doing laundry at night instead of engaging intimacy in the bedroom. Whatever the reason, your schedule becomes too full or complicated for you to fit in sex - which is where the concept of scheduling comes in. When you have sex scheduled, there is no question about whether or not you can fit it in between work, chores, errands, meal prep, soccer games or all the other things that tend to beat out sex for attention.

It gives both of you something to look forward to

Scheduled sex is something that you and your spouse can look forward to, especially if you decide to schedule it at the end of a long workday or the end of the workweek, depending on your needs. Having something to look forward to during the dredge of a workday or while you is busy doing chores after work can help you get through the day and improve your overall mood.

You can schedule sex around date nights and other activities

Another reason to schedule sex is that you can make sure to schedule it around couple’s activities, such as date nights, couples' getaways or evenings out on the town. If scheduling sex sounds weird to you, just build it right into your existing plans - now it's romantic!  Ending these types of couple’s activities with sex is the perfect cherry on top of a great evening.

Scheduling sex with your spouse may seem strange at first, but with the above benefits in mind, it’s time to get out your calendars and start marking the days.  And remember, no plan for sex is a plan for no sex ;)
