Have you really lost your mind? It is a public forum viewed by everyone who has a search engine. Yeah, everyone is an adult. Everyone excluding you. Young people view this forum, no one needed to hear about you breakfast where you and your girlfriend played Tarzan and Jane.

inˇtiˇmate definition: private or secret.

This is a Christian forum, but you enjoy coming here and posting whatever goof ball foolishness you can muster. You are just so unbelievable.

Virgin ears? What next, you going to post pictures? Go into the details? Everyone is a prude if they don't go for your description of your imitation of Moses David Berg's breakfast time?

This is sad, because it reveals what you were taught concerning sex and marital intimacy.
Your girlfriend needs to buy you a dictionary.

Sadly you have no idea what is means to be intimate.

You know what the word decorum means?

No, bro, you are talking about you and your girlfriend stripping down nude to eat waffles. No body cares, and that image nobody need to even go there.

Proverbs 5:18-19 King James Version (KJV)
18 Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.
19 Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love.
You mostly post with ESV, wonder why you used KJV?

Here is the ESV interpretation. doesn't sound like Aquila sitting naked eating Lucky Charms.

Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice in the wife of your youth, a lovely deer, a graceful doe. Let her breasts fill you at all times with delight;
be intoxicated always in her love.

Love and physical intimacy between a husband and wife is not crude, lewd, or dirty. It's lovely, precious, sacred, joyous, pure, and blessed. When someone gets all "grossed out" or "shocked" about marital intimacy, you can be relatively certain that they don't have a healthy view of this gift of God.
Bro, I totally understand that you honestly have no shame, you have no respect for yourself, let alone anyone else. You are like an ecclesiastical John Wayne Gacy, Instead of dressing like Pogo the Clown, you put on the caring Christian. You quote Titus 1:15 but buddy boy, you know that verse is all over your face. That prayer, fasting and getting soaked in the word? Never gonna happen, huh?

Bro, Jesus is the only remedy to everything we have a problem with.

Pray and fast.

Aquila, are you married? I know you were several years ago, but divorced, per your own testimony here at AFF. But what about right now?

But you make some good points. Maybe a marriage thread isn't the best thing for an open forum wherein the more intimate elements of marriage might come up in a discussion.

I do know of several Christian forums wherein they have the marriage section locked down and inaccessible to those who are not over 18.

So, instead of lobbing personal insults, I'm going to perhaps suggest a solution. Can we make the marriage section more restricted so that only adults can access it? That way if a more intimate subject matter is being discussed it is more private.

Yes, we're married. And I'm believing the latter house will be greater than the former house.

I've already had a number of people tell me I'm in sin for remarrying. So, if you're going to go down that road, I just wanted you to know I'm already well informed.

That sounds very nice. I'm now planning to do this as the weather cools for the Fall. Thanks for the idea.

I still don't think it's a good idea to discuss intimate details of our relationships on a Forum, even in a restricted area

I can respect that. Eh, to each their own.

But a restriction would allow some degree of protection for those who are under 18.

You made up my quote? To make it look like I was saying that I'm uptight?

Chris, you are such a liar.

No, most people just get disgusted and leave the thread. Because they see it's just you playing shock the Christians.

Oh, you just figured that out? You mean you just stumble your way through life like a drunken man carrying a ming vase? Chris, your wife, is she cool with you telling everyone on the World Wide Web that she dusts the shelves in the nude? No Apostolic wife would appreciate their husband talking about their PRIVATE life on a forum? A forum? Good points, like the ones on top of your head.

Really?

May I suggest you go there.

Where you and the other "Christians" can talk about your weirdness. Locked down Marriage forum? Right on bro!

You know, this place isn't helping you. You are either one of the biggest fakers, or you are literally coming apart at the seams. Bro, you need to find a place to meet Jesus Christ. You need to be filled to overflowing with the Holy Ghost. Bro, your solutions aren't solutions, they are just deeper into the pit.

With you? You think anyone in their right mind would give you access to a locked private room on their forum? To discuss your weird inclinations.

Insults? No, they are observations of your great zeal to be over the top on a Christain forum.

What could you possibly want to discuss, on an internet forum, that "under 18 not allowed" would even remotely appeal to you?

GOOD GRIEF, you need to go.
