Read an Excerpt

When it comes to defining what love really is, you

only have two options: There's the right one and the

wrong one. The wrong definition of love comes from

society. Society says that love is a feeling. But where do they get this mistaken idea that love is just a mere feeling? Hey, great question. Thanks for asking. You see, in the Bible there are four different Greek words for love. And our society only pays attention to the first three. Let me show you what I mean:

Stergo—A love of complacency and satisfaction. (I

love my job.)

Phileo—A love of fondness or affection. (I love my

friend.)

Eros—A love of passion. (Where we get the English

word "erotic.")

Of those three Greek words, which one do you think

is the most popular with our society? It's "eros" or

passion, isn't it? You see, the average person today thinks that love is merely a physical pleasure or a fabulous feeling. And, folks, there's nothing wrong with passion, in the confines of marriage, that is. It's not only a wonderful emotion, it's a powerful force. In fact, passion is so powerful it's usually what causes people to get married. But the problem is that although passion can get you married, it cannot make a marriage last. Why? Because passion is built on feelings. And the problem with feelings is that they don't last. They're up one minute and down the next. Therefore, if you try to build a relationship on passion, then guess what's going to happen? Your relationship is going to be up one minute and down the next.

Table of Contents

Preface

1. Marriage Is Under Attack

Marriage is under attack by consumerism, by constant

busy-ness, by feminism, and by the sexual revolution.

2. Men and Women Are Different

Men and women are different physically and

psychologically.

3. Love Is an Action

Love in action requires no stipulations and a solid

commitment.

4. The Need for Romance

Fill each other's love tank by giving special gifts, by giving

quality time, by giving positive words, by giving acts of

service, and by giving physical touch.

5. The Need for Communication—Part 1

Avoid communication breakdown by giving each other some

time and by giving each other some clarity.

6. The Need for Communication—Part 2

Avoid communication breakdown by giving each other some

ear, by not denying the feelings, by not fixing things too

soon, and by not giving in to procrastination.

7. The Need for Communication—Part 3

Avoid communication breakdown by giving each other some

respect, by staying away from mind reading, and by staying

away from degrading behavior.

8. The Need for Reconciliation

Avoid marital isolation by refusing to give in to false

expectations, by refusing to delay, by refusing to retaliate, by

refusing to always have to be right, and by refusing to hold

back forgiveness.

9. The Need for Honor

We honor our spouse by our words and by our actions.

10. The Need for Intimacy

Develop intimacy by spending time with each other, by

sharing interest in each other, and by staying faithful to each

other.

11. The Need for Biblical Men

A Biblical man is a sacrificial leader, a spiritual leader, a

secure leader, and a sensitive leader.

12. The Need for Biblical Women

A Biblical woman is a nurturing support, a respectful

support, and an encouraging support.

13. The Need for a Strong Family

Maintain a strong family by sharing your problems between

each other, by showing your dependency upon each other, by

creating your own memories together, and by setting the

Lord as the top priority.
