What would you be like if your partner, without question, condition or hesitation met all your needs? It could be sex. It could be making you a cup of coffee in the morning. It could be long weekend drives or shopping sprees or financial freedom or the white picket fence.
What would you be like if, regardless of what you did or said, your partner made it their priority to put you first all the time in your relationship?
Would you become more honest? How many people (men and women) hold off on being honest in their relationship because they feel they need to ‘earn favor’ with their partner, and speaking out against something would mean their partner would withhold something they loved or needed? If the sex was guaranteed, would you tell your partner you’d rather them not fart in bed? Would you say you wish their in-laws would just butt out of your life? Would you admit that yes, their bottom did look big in those jeans?
Would you become more complacent? Would you stop caring? You knew that they’d go to work, earning the big bucks to provide for you, regardless of how much weight you packed on? Would you cook the easiest, simplest meals, knowing that it would not change how much they doted on you or how hard they worked for the family?
Would you want to be a more giving partner? Maybe out of guilt, out of love, out of obligation? Would it prompt you to be more attentive to their needs? To come home that bit earlier? To indulge in their needs, just to make them feel that extra bit special? Would it make you appreciate them all the more? I’m curious.
Would you get bored of your spouse? Someone very near and dear to me told me once that ‘the chase is ALWAYS more fun than the kill’. Would you tire of your spouse, of having to work at the relationship, of having it all put on a platter for you? Would you lose the mystery, the allure, the journey of constantly wanting to get to know what your spouse thought, dreamed of or desired?
I’m interested. Who would you become if the sex was guaranteed? Who would you become if your partner met all the needs you desired them to meet?
