Hi there! My name is Annabel. I have been married to a wonderful man for around a decade. He is the love of my life & the man I waited for. We have several beautiful children. We live in the midwest United States. We are both in our 30’s.
I love Jesus Christ, I respect my husband, and I am learning how to navigate marriage as a high desire wife. All of the books and marriage resources that encourage the wife to sacrifice herself in order to serve her husband sexually…well, they don’t apply here. I am higher-drive wife, who wants sex more than my husband does. I am more sexually adventurous than my husband. I know what it is to be confused and feel I am (seemingly) different from every other wife on the planet. New studies, however, are showing that perhaps as many as 1 in 4 wives say that they have a higher sex drive than their husbands.
Our marriage has had its ups and downs sexually, but I know what it means to be refused, and to walk with the pain and hurt of those experiences. There is not much place to speak of this in day to day life, so I began writing this blog bring hope and shed light on this much-needed topic. I blog under a pseudonym in order to help protect my marriage & my husband, whom I love with all my heart. He is known on this blog as Mr. Spice – which is, in some ways, a confession of hope and belief. He encouraged me to blog under the name Annabel, which is a Scottish name for “beautiful”.
I pray this blog will be used to create a life-giving community where we find strength, encouragement and wisdom as high desire wives.
