Is it enough that we desire marriage and feel the Lord calling us, or should we wait to receive some explicit confirmation? It's hard for me to believe that Mary gave birth without pain while Jesus consumated his marriage with us in pain. What do you think about this? How can a bear a sexless marriage as a wife with love and joy?
