I often talk to couples wanting to recover that spark
they once had, or the tingling feeling that’s no longer
present. There are strategies that can help!
• Cherish and Respect: The core emotional need of a
woman is to be cherished. A man’s core emotional need
is to feel respected by his wife. When he comes home,
he wants to feel there is at least one person in the world
who thinks he’s got what it takes.
• Be Friends: The bride and groom should become
“beloved friends.” Each person validates and respects
the other person’s feelings and needs. Validation means:
What’s important to you is important to me.
• Safe Zone: Agree to keep one basic rule at the
beginning of your marriage: No matter how upset you
are, never launch a verbal attack. Fighting with insults
only contaminates the relationship. Instead, follow the
following time-tested strategies: Listen, compromise,
repair and express gratitude.
• Strong Boundaries: Set strong boundaries that
show you value your marriage and don’t allow anyone
or anything to weaken your relationship. That means
meeting your spouse’s needs before anyone else’s,
coming home with enough time left for quality time,
and planning the occasional date night.
• Pleasure Time: Marriage is ultimately about
making each other feel good on a daily basis. If she says
she likes roses, don’t bring her sunflowers. If he likes
chocolate cake, bake him brownies not a keylime pie.

12 Dirty Job
Babies are born unafraid — except
for two things: falling, and loud
noises, both of which are coded
into their DNA for survival. The
fear of spiders or tapioca pudding
comes later, from experience.
Snapping turtles were once used for
a gruesome task: finding the bodies
of drowning victims. The turtles
would be tied to a rope, which would
stop moving when the scavengers
found something for lunch.

You should be glad it isn’t worse.
