This means that she is to help her husband in taking care of the family.PowerPoint Presentation: Physical life is to be passed on through individual families and the marital relationship.PowerPoint Presentation: God initiated sexual relations between man and woman (Ge 1:27,28). Sexual relations was part of God’s original plan (Ge 1:27,28).PowerPoint Presentation: Sexual relations was good in the sight of God (Ge 1:31). The sexual instinct is a primary drive created by God but is to be fulfilled solely in the bonds of marriage (Ge 3:16).FULFILLING NEEDS IN MARRIAGE: FULFILLING NEEDS IN MARRIAGE There are five basic needs in every person’s life.

STATUS - “how important am I” Our self-image or self-concept is often built upon our appearance.PowerPoint Presentation: BELONGING - “do others accept me” When we feel that others accept us we feel a sense of security because we are not alone.PowerPoint Presentation: WORTHINESS - “I am good, I count” This rests on the introspective attitude of self-approval and being affirmed as a person of value.PowerPoint Presentation: ADEQUACY - “I am a success” Competence rests on the evaluations received, in part, through relationships and on one’s present sense of success.PowerPoint Presentation: The five basic needs of man are all meet in Jesus.
