dates, unexpected adventure where one takes the other to a hotel.
appreciation--expression of qualities you like in each other.

needs in marriage. For example, a wife needs to be listened to and
understood while a husband needs to be admired and respected. Ask
each other how you can better meet your partners needs and then

every day. Husbands and wives who keep the lines of communication

hidden feelings or tensions that havent been aired between them.
The same is true with God--we love Him more and have a better relationship
with Him when we communicate daily.
