A husband who owns his authority as leader in the home has a life-long responsibility to his wife. He must be prepared to exercise his authority at all times. If marital spanking is part of how a husband helps his wife grow in her submission, then that spanking shouldn’t fade out as the grey hairs appear and the energy levels drop. Certainly one can expect the need for punishment spankings to lessen as the years pass and a couple grows closer and matures emotionally. A husband and wife who love each other will learn to serve each other better as the years pass. A wife who has matured in her submissive role is unlikely to disregard her husband, show him disrespect, or blatantly disobey him. A husband who has shouldered his leadership responsibilities and learned to lead wisely will most likely have learned that his highest calling is to love and serve his wife. His choices will enrich the life of his darling wife and encourage her to reach higher levels of submission as he grows in his authority. The call for a husband to subject his wife to punishment spankings will become more faint as the couple grows up together.
The need for communication, however, will never end. It doesn’t matter how emotionally mature a couple becomes - they will always need to share their deepest, most intimate thoughts with each other if the marriage is to remain healthy. Marital spanking, at its very heart, is a poorly understood, yet very powerful form of communication between a husband and wife. It can be practiced on the wedding night. It can be practiced every day thereafter for as long as that couple should live. It can be started decades after a couple’s wedding. There is no right time or wrong time to incorporate marital spanking into a marriage. And there is no end point that should be imposed based on age.
But isn’t spanking too physically demanding for elderly folk? Obviously, age-related illness or disability may make some spanking positions difficult or impossible. Where a spanking position or technique that was once comfortable becomes too difficult to use, the couple should consider adapting the position or the implement(s) used. Giving up spanking because it takes a little more effort than it once did is dangerous for the integrity of the marriage. By excluding the experience of the husband reddening his wife’s bare bottom from the repertoire of communication tools, the couple that once spanked is choosing to share less of themselves with each other. The less we share with our partners, the less we grow as a couple. Inevitably, as the communication diminishes, spouses drift apart. But this drift is unnecessary. Every couple can finish strong. Drifting apart in the latter years of marriage is as much a choice as it is in the first few years of marriage, or anywhere in between. If you once included spanking in your marriage and quit because you felt you were too old, go back to your “old tricks”. If you have never included spanking in your marriage, and feel you are now both too old to even consider it, think again. Read, educate yourself, and then take the plunge and try out some “old fashioned” marriage activities.
