NOTE: The following question and answer was taken from the book Family Life and Marriage Bible by Dennis and Barbara Rainey.

Question #1. What steps can a man take to keep romance alive?

Answer #1. No where in marriage are the differences between men and women more evident than on the romance side of the ledger. Women generally spell romance: r-e-l-a-t-i-o-n-s-h-i-p.

Men spell it a different way: S-E-X.

Typically, a man’s focus is physical while a woman’s focus is relational.

That’s why we married men need to learn how to communicate with our wives in a language that clearly speaks the relational aspect of love and romance.

If you don’t know what this is, find out.

One thing is certain: You need to cultivate romance if it is going to grow in your marriage.

It is easy for a man, after he’s been married for a time, to become complacent, to think he doesn’t have to compete for his wife or need to communicate his love for her in both words and actions, that he no longer needs to romance her.

You could hardly make a bigger mistake.

What would communicate love to your wife?

A love letter?

Then write one!

A hug and a kiss that says I love you?

Do it!!

Helping her at home with the children and household duties?

Go the extra mile!

NOTE: Daily there is a new post to help your marriage be successful.
