Question #1:  How can I set my wife apart and put her on a pedestal?

Answer #1: It may sound like a cliche, but a wife wants her husband to sweep her off her feet, carry her away to the castle, look deeply into her eyes and say, “Let’s spend some time together.” To a woman, that kind of focused attention is like precious gold.

     One time Barbara and I had a little unresolved argument over a weekend. A couple of days later, we went on our weekly date, a custom for us. On that date we finally had enough time and a suitable environment where we could fully discuss and resolve our differences. We just needed several hours away from phones, papers, and bills, and the needs of our children. And you need it just as much as we do!

     Even when you and your wife have no conflicts or problems to work out, however, your better half craves such focused attention from you. Don’t deprive her! The Song of Songs has taught me a great deal about living joyfully with Barbara, but maybe the most important truth I have found there is that a relationship needs time for romance, for two people to connect deeply, to understand each other, to enjoy each other’s company, and to build mutual trust.
