Because I Love You…
There was some interesting comment discussion on the recent What “Feeling Desired” Means to Him post. The post was about sex, but it tapped into something that should go way beyond sex:
Because I love you is reason enough to do things.
Our love should cause us to do things we would not otherwise do because our spouse enjoys them. Be it a sex act, a certain type of restaurant, a form of entertainment, or playing a certain game, why wouldn’t we do it out of love?
Of course, this only works long-term if both husband and wife do it. It’s not about quid-pro-quo or keeping score, it’s just reality. If either spouse does most of the giving the marriage is unbalanced, unhealthy, and headed for trouble.
