Question #1.  Marriage has seemed to dull our romantic creativity—what should we do?

Answer #1.  At some point in almost every marriage, a couple realizes that they just don’t experience the same romantic feelings they once enjoyed.

Romance is the sugar and spice of marriage.  It is the fire in the fireplace—the warm response of one spouse to another that says, “We may have struggles, but I love you, and everything is okay.”  We can enjoy the warmth of our love for one another, even in the midst of the chilling winds of difficult times.

Romance should be a part of our everyday marriage experience.  Proverbs 5:18, 19 tells husbands, “Rejoice with the wife of your youth, as a loving deer and a graceful doe, let her breasts satisfy you at all times.  And always be enraptured with her love.”

That’s a powerful image–literally, to be enraptured with your mate.  This type of romance is part of what sets a marriage apart from just a friendship.  Barbara is my friend, but a side from our relationship goes way beyond that.  We share a marriage bed and we dream thoughts and share intimacies that are reserved only for us!

God designed the marriage relationship, to experience exhilaration with your most intimate of friends, your spouse.  Don’t settle for less.
