3 Ways You Are Rejecting Your Spouse

As I sat on my bed, looking at my wife as she got ready for bed in the bathroom I was excited about the conversation we had had earlier in the day about having sex. I picked up my book and began to read as I waited for my beautiful wife Alisa to come to bed so that we could have some fun.

The minutes ticked by one after another. My eyes began to shut as my body relaxed for another night of sleep. When I woke up it was the next morning and the feeling of being rejected once again hit me.
