Resources for Husbands
There seems to be a plethora of blogs and such available from like-minded sources that are geared toward helping wives shift their thinking to a more biblical view of sexuality in marriage. I have had a more difficult time finding the same for husbands struggling to provide the necessary non-sexual romance that wives might need.
My wife and I have had a tumultuous year (not necessarily related to our marriage) and all of it has exacerbated issues that were already arising in our marriage. I am wanting to do a better job of giving her the non-sexual attention she needs. Sometimes I have struggled to do this well consistently because there hasn’t seemed to be any reciprocation from her. I guess I’m looking for a place to find consistent encouragement to press on even when I am tempted to wallow in self-pity.
We are beginning to work together on these things, and there are lots of options for her on this topic. However, I don’t want to suggest any of those if I do not have an option for me that I can show her. I want to make sure she knows that I see myself as big source of the problem and I am actively seeking ways to be a big part of the solution, if that makes sense.
The Generous Husband is a good one, and a site in which the facilitator of this site is the main (the only?) content contributor. Another good resource for men committed to loving their wives and children is DadTired.com
Dad Tired was started by a former pastor who was having a tough time loving his wife and children during a tough season and found himself in the same situation you described—virtually unable to find any worthwhile resources for husbands to love and lead their families well. Do be aware that this site’s primary focus is on men and helping those men grow in relationship with Jesus and how that impacts how they lead their families.
I agree with the resources mentioned above. The Art of Manliness is a great resource. Not sex specific, but a generally good blog written by a Christian man, if I remember right. I’ve actually considered starting a blog about sex from the male perspective sometime, since there’s not a whole lot out there yet. We’ll see.
