Wow...divorce is everywhere and closer to home than I care to imagine. I recently read an article titled, Guarding Your Heart in Marriage, and wondered why we don't guard our marriages more. We guard our homes by making sure the doors and windows are locked. Some couples live in gated communities. We guard our cars with car alarms. We guard our belongings by keeping them locked up! We should definitely be more aware of guarding our marriage!

Tingles can occur with a co-worker, a church member, a neighbor, or a complete stranger. If you're feeling the tingles for anyone except your spouse, it's time to run the other way. Tingles produce other feelings that lead to physical touch. I told hubby I wanted to feel the tingles again from him - nobody else. He seemed surprised when I told him I didn't always feel the tingles with him. Uh...sometimes I can't stand being around you! Hubby SAID he always feels the tingles with me and although that was so sweet to say, I find it hard to believe. I'm sure when I get on his nerves, tingly is not the feeling he feels! LOL
Time is invaluable in marriage and often taken for granted. We put a lot of time in our careers, school studies, children, church, hobbies, sports, friends, etc...How much time do we invest in each other? Spending time together (like we did when we first met) is when the tingles are created. Focusing on each other and MAKING time to be ALONE is tingle time! It's okay to go out with other couples and have family nights (hubby is excellent about family nights), but a flower not watered will die.
Make time to spend time alone with your spouse and feel the tingles!
Sex is waaay more important to a man than a woman will ever understand. We've all heard the phrase saying the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, right? Well, I recently read an article that agreed with me that the way to a man's heart is NOT through his stomach...go a little lower! SEX, SEX, SEX....do I need to say it again? Okay, SEX! One track minds, thinking with the wrong head, or however you want to say it, men want SEX....waaay more than most wives want to give it.
Below is an article from Focus on the Family that I'd like to share.
