Can't get better instruction than this:

"Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord...Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it" (Eph 5:22-25).

It's unfortunate that many, if not all, the people of the world today don't know HOW to love. Sure, the bible says to love God and the neighbors, and has a great definition of the word, but people don't know HOW to love.

First, "wash the feet" of your spouse. This in itself would definately be a shocker. Second, do an online Bible search for "one another" and "each other."

As for your kids: "wash their feet" and do a ritual every Friday night at six to bless each child from the time of birth onward. And if I were you, I wouldn't miss a day (a similar situation happened while I was teaching college).

First,I TELL him that I love him.Then I try to show him in as many ways I can.I keep the house up,neat and clean.

I like to surprise him by making his favorite goodie. I tell him how important he is to me by spending time with him and sharing our love, and our mutual love for the Lord. We read and pray together.

I compliment him often.Occasionally I'll buy him a gift for no particular reason.
I love planning a surprise getaway on a week-end.
A bonus is that he gives all this back!

Gary Chapman (a Christian counsellor) discovered that we all express & perceive love in different ways. It's possible to do kind, loving gestures to our spouse but unless we know what specifically speaks to their heart, it can be a hit & miss situation. Mr. Chapman has discovered a very simple way to discover what your spouse needs to feel loved & appreciated. Every married person needs to read his book ... "The Five Love Languages" (also available on video). (Do a Google search for more info.)

I pray for my wife and do all I can to make her chores and life easier. I share the housework with her because she is so faithful to help pay bills. She is a blessing to me.

I am married to a nonbeliever. This issue puts great strain on the marriage. Does anyone have any advice? I behave as a humble, godly wife but it doesn't seem to influence him..Thank you and God bless

TO be honest, you can use Proverbs 18:21-22. Verse 21 says " Death and life are in the power of the tongue;" That is the same as saying love, encouragement, etc and vice versa are in the power of the words we say. So a man should let his wife know that she is a good thing, according to verse 22, and that when he found her he abtained favor from the Lord.

Be a listener, be patient with them. Be understanding. Encourage them when possible. Respect them as a gift from God. Honer them by putting their desires first. Look past their faults and show love anyway. Pray for them. Be an example, a expression of love. Keep things simple. Be interested in their needs and give yourself to that without complaning about it. Share God's word with them. Be open and honest. Don't hide things from each other. Be a peace maker. Be free with your love - no price on it.

be genuine in your relationship with your husband. when he needs you body, soul and mind, do not refuse, that will certainly put him off. dont be a door mat but voice your opinion strongly when you differ in matters of great concern. love is based on mutual respect for one another. the rest will follow suit.

There is a great book...7 Languages of Love. My husband and me have read the book together, identified our own and each other's languages, and use them in our daily lives. And of course, we pray together daily. We respect each other and show that in our home and in public.

do things for him that I really do not want to do but do it anyway with a smile.
---shira_5965 on 7/19/05

you need to find out from your spouse the kind of things that demonstrate love in accordance to i cor 13. Some people show love by giving gifts e.g red roses, while others is through acts of service,while others they just need someone to listen and understand them.whatever way that powerfully sends the message"i love u", God needs to be placed in the center of it that it may go well with you.

---Chioma on 7/19/05

Simple, atleast twice a month have a date night. Have someone watch the kids, and go out. I would suggest something where you can talk and have fun. Dinner and playing putt/putt, walks on the beach or local park, etc. Little calls mid day to let them know you were thinking of them. And for women, a (for no reason) rose(s). Hope that helps.

Second,your spouse deserves to feel special. Think about it...on this entire plante, you two met by the plan of God! So your spouse deserves to be treated special. Express how much you appriciate your spouse with words. You can say "I love you" and leave a cute note for her in her bible..etc.Try reading this book"Five Love Languages"by Gary Chapman. This book helped me a lot when I was with my ex. God bless you!

First and most importantly,you need to learn about your spouse."In what way, does s/he feel loved?".If she feels loved by having quality time with you. You need to spend some time with her face to face,like talking eye to eye while you eat,"How was your day?How do you feel now?".You could go for a walk in the evening..etc.If she feels loved by touching,you need to show her affection..etc.
