Mutual Interests

Too many couples lose their desire to be together because they no longer have mutual interests. If you try, you can develop some mutual interest. Travel is a great possibility. Fun, sports, hobbies, and intellectual stimulation are all vital to a growing relationship.


Pray for your wife daily. Ask God to give you love for her and to help you be sensitive to her needs. It's also important to pray for your children on a daily basis. Ask your wife and children how to pray for them. As the years pass, the children will come to you or call you with their prayer requests, even when they leave home.

Regularly prayer for your family, perhaps more than any other thing, demonstrates your care for them and ultimately shows them God's love.
