ISAAC, IT IS SAID, “took Rebekah and she became his wife, and he loved her” (Gen.24:67).  Centuries later, that’s still what a wife most wants out of marriage.

A wife wants her husband to love her, to cherish and care for her, to pursue her and continue to know who she is and who she is becoming.  She wants her husband to seek a relationship with her.  She wants him to seek to understand her.  It’s why on some occasions, our wives want to be intriguing and a challenge, not easily figured out.

When a woman sees her husband denying himself for her, she understands that it’s  because of love.

On the other hand, if a woman senses her husband is romancing her in order to meet his own personal needs, then she feels manipulated, or controlled, or less valued…used.  She may begin to fear that she would be taken advantage of, taken for granted sexually, and unappreciated in all kinds of ways.

A wife’s ultimate need is to be loved.  No man will do that perfectly.  But a husband seeking to become the man God wants him to be will learn how to better love his mate.  The result is a wife who begins to feel and experience unconditional love—and a marriage of growing commitment, trust, and fulfillment.
