Surprise her with gift
- When you’re walking through the mall, and your wife stops to look at something that she likes, try to remember it. Do your research and ask your mother-in-law or her sisters for a gift idea or two (you’ll get emotional points from them as well)
Listen to her
To be truly heard is the longing of every human heart, and your wife is no exception. It sounds simple, but listening can be harder than it seems with so many distractions around us and within us. Set aside sometime every day to look into your wife’s eyes and really listen to what she has to say. You may be surprised at what you hear. (James 1:19)
- the fact is that love is of two kinds, one which commands, and one which obeys. The two are quite distinct, and the passion to which the one gives rise is not the passion of the other.
Do you know how to practice the “love language” concept? In order to know what conveys love to your spouse, you must enter his world and become a student of your man. Watch what he gets excited about and learn enough to be able to talk with him about his passion. Find out what communicates “love” to him—is it affirming words, physical touch, acts of service (kindness in action), gifts, little love notes on the dash of his car, or maybe quality time? Know what communicates love to your man so you can love him well.
