One of the critical things to develop in a
marriage is a sense of emotional safety and
security in the relationship.
A good way of doing this is by frequently
expressing love in tangible ways. Here are
Touch them –
prefer your spouse, sit next to them, hold
hands, hug, touch them as you walk by, make
love, snuggle, take a bath together or take
dance lessons. Do anything that requires a
certain amount of touch.
Spend time with them –
find common interests, make dates, travel
together, minister together, pray and study
together, shop together or go for walks.
Talk to them –
say something nice or kind, make a point of
sharing your day, learn something new every
day and share it, compliment them, read to
each other, verbally encourage them in
pursuing their dreams and say “I love you” a
Do something for them –
polish their shoes, pick up after the children
(even if it’s not your job) or change a diaper.
Look for something practical to do that will
bless your spouse.
Give them something special –
it might be something practical that they need
or something foolish and romantic – a book, a
handful of flowers, a mushy note or card (or a
silly one, or a sexy one). Paul bought me a
grease screen on our 1-month anniversary and
I loved him for it! (yes, I’m the practical one)
As an aside, you might listen carefully to your
spouse. Listen to what they ask for. Listen to
what impresses them about others.
This will give you a clue as to what they want
and need in terms of loving expressions.
