How Feeling Entitled to Sex Can Destroy Your Marriage


Culture has made many people believe you must have a happy sex life in order to be whole and fulfilled in life. The church has “Christianized” that idea, leading many to believe you are entitled to sex, especially if you’re married. But countless Christian married people are finding that doesn’t work out well.

Author, husband, podcaster, and pastor Noah Filipiak talks with Dr. Carol on this episode about how feeling entitled to sex almost destroyed his marriage, and what he believes now. They talk about the belief some have that sex is the “prize” for getting married God’s way, 1 Corinthians 7, handling one’s sex drive in a God-honoring and spouse-honoring way, and more.
