Hey, y'all, it's Valentine's Day (still!), and wouldn't it be so great if you could have some sweet advice on love and relationships and sexy times and all that? Of course it would, that's basically the whole point of this day. And who better to teach us the ways of romance than Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar, the couple that has been married for 30 years, the couple that has 19 kids and counting? There's no one better, and that's why they did this big ol' interview.
Here's Michelle's tip on sex for all you ladies, and how you should have it all the time, constantly, even if you're not into it, for your man:
"[A friend] said, 'In your marriage there will be times you're going to be very exhausted. Your hubby comes home after a hard day's work, you get the baby to bed, and he is going to be looking forward to that time with you. Be available. Anyone can fix him lunch, but only one person can meet that physical need of love that he has, and you always need to be available when he calls.' That has been such a lifesaver for our marriage."
And fellas, Jim Bob has a tip for you, too:
"That's key in a relationship, the husband needs to cherish his wife and always treat his wife like a queen."
Isn't that sweet? Your wife is like a queen. A queen who needs to be willing to put out at all times. Got it?
And finally, here's some more advice from Michelle:
"He shares his heart with me, his struggles, his fears and his dreams. Many men would not do that, but God's word says that before honor comes humility. When he learns to humble himself before God and me, it builds him up so much in my eyes."
That's ... no, that's sweet. All of this is sweet, really, for them, and obviously they love each other and their relationship is working. Just because something sounds weird and scary and backwards to us doesn't mean it's not perfectly lovely to other people, right? Right?!
