Topic: Loving Our Wives Well from Forging Bonds
"But what does a wife NEED from her husband? One thing is certain; a wife's needs are far different from the needs of husbands. Any married man knows that!! For over thirty years I have been trying to develop and stay focussed on a clear picture of what my wife's needs are. I have read innumerable books, and failed countless times--but I have been keeping notes! As an ordained pastor, I've also been providing marriage counseling for many years.
In my opinion the four most important, foundational needs of a wife's heart are these:
1. Emotional intimacy with you--the yearning for a soul mate who knows and understands what is going on in her heart.
2. Being partners with you--feeling that she has a companion beside her, meeting life's responsibilities TOGETHER
3. Spiritual intimacy with you, her spiritual leader--her husband carrying the weight of spiritual leadership so she can flourish in her role as assistant.
4. Words of affirmation from you--hearing often that she is highly valued by you and has the ideal combination of beauty and feminine virtues that you need."
