I'll just start off with one of the first things that struck me. And, maybe all of you married women can help me out with this one.
"Men need to feel like heroes to their wives. They not only want their wives to meet their sexual needs, but they also want them to meet their emotional needs for love, respect, appreciation, and admiration. When those needs don't get met, a husband's heart will grow cold toward his wife... As much as we long to have our husbands understand and meet our innermost needs, we have to learn to give that which we desire to receive."
Ok, so here's my "thing." I get how to love, respect, appreciate, and admire. I know how to do all of those things. Do I do them all the time? I'm 100% sure the answer is a resounding "no." I know there are times he doesn't feel like I give him all of that - and we're not even married yet. I'm working on it, and I honestly think I've made a lot of progress. Though, I guess you would have to ask him to be sure.
What I don't get is the "hero" part... I know what it means, etc. That doesn't need to be explained. I'm just not sure how to do it. How do you make your husbands feel like they are your heroes? Obviously, I know all men are different...
