As an adult convert to the faith with an atheist husband, can I have a meaningful marriage? Should couples beyond their fertile years no longer engage in the sexual embrace since there isn't a possibility of children?
Ask Christopher West is a weekly podcast in which Theology of the Body Institute President Christopher West and his beloved wife Wendy share their humor and wisdom, answering questions about marriage, relationships, life, and the Catholic faith, all in light of John Paul II’s beautiful teachings on the Theology of the Body.

Thank you both for your beautiful witness! I am blown away by TOB but also really struggling. As an adult convert to the faith, with an atheist husband, I often feel lonely. I have friendships with men who are believers and love the chance to talk to other men about our shared beliefs. My second issue is intimacy - I have very sisterly feelings towards my husband - and for various reasons I can’t see that changing, trust me on that. So my question - can I have a meaningful marriage when I feel lonely both spiritually and sexually and I’m drawn to others? Thank you and God Bless!
