Chapter One

To Know Him Is To Love Him

Is your marriage on the road to divorce? Let me teach you how to change lanes and receive the keys to a new adventure.

Have you ever thought about why men have affairs? They lack encouragement from their partner. They need sex, sex, love, and did I say sex?

As women, we should learn to be more attractive to our guy, to encourage him, and take time to prepare ourselves for our men.

We underestimate the importance of looking sexy for our man. Trust me women, he knows your size, and any size can be sexy when you are exciting, playful, and confident. Just ask him. He needs you to be playful, sexy, and inviting.

I want to teach you how to treat your man as a king. At least once a month, give him a royal dinner in bed and a royal massage (along with control of the remote).

I want to teach you how to communicate better. (Ask questions)

I want you to learn his innermost desires. (Find out his love touches.)

* Leave him Love Notes such as: "You are my Superman."

* Learn how to have date nights that please him. (Go to the park and race remote-control cars).

* Learn to encourage him and lift him up as the king of the house.

Don't everdishonor him at home or in public. Don't be known as the nagging wife; be known as the queen. Learn to walk like royalty. Learn to keep a smile on his face all the time.

Learn what makes him smile.

Bring back "that lovin' feeling." Trust me, he did not marry you to be bored. He married you because you made him tingle inside. Find that tingle again. As love and marriage expert Gary Chapman says, "Fill his love tank."

Women, take the challenge and serve your king. Read all about him and surprise him with love ideas like hiding tattoos all over your body and having a body hunt.

You will probably have to fill this book out for him. Ask him questions and take the time to get the answers. Your marriage will greatly benefit from it!

Thoughts for the day:

(Excerpted from Secrets About Men Every Woman Should Know by Barbara DeAngelis or What Every Woman Should Know by Bishop E. Bernard Jordan)

* Arguing without seeking solutions is a destructive game.

* Most men believe that romance and sex is the same thing.

* Romance is fun work.

* Never stop dating your husband.

* Learn to compromise rather than complain.

Every woman should know:

* A wise woman strengthens her family.

* A wife of character is her husband's crown.

* How to laugh at mistakes after the tears dry.

Sexy Says It

Sexy says all kinds of things. And being sexy can be so simple, when you make the effort.

Women, did you know that men think about sex more than 200 times in a day! Wow was my thought when I read that information. I always thought and was told that men only want one thing: sex. Okay, so maybe it is true, but bottom line, men need sexual touch to feel loved. Women, on the other hand, need comfort to feel loved. We have to learn to find the right balance between each partner.

I hope that you, as women, can learn to find other things that make him happy. In this book you may be the one to ask questions and record them, but it will be worth the time and effort. Find out what makes him happy outside the bedroom and you should have a very happy man. Ask yourself if you could you buy his favorite music, his favorite golf clubs, or perhaps the latest fishing gear that would thrill him?

Would you know where to send him and the boys for a weekend away? Such a weekend could be very beneficial for you to arrange. Time alone is an amazing thing. You both should feel renewed after such a weekend.

I want you to be able to change the atmosphere in your home into a loving environment. Women say to me all the time, "But you don't know my husband!" You're right, but I have seen those same husbands who were not interested in love, find the girl who makes them smile and off they went!

If you think I'm wrong, look at why men have affairs. Or think about it, don't men get married more quickly than women after divorce? I asked myself, "Why do men jump into a relationship so quickly after being so unhappy?" That question led me to research the subject.

Men say that women tend to become their mom. (For tips on improving this problem, check out my book on How to Transform from Mom-Mode to Wife-Mode, coming soon.)

Men want and need to be with someone all the time, but stop and look around. How do your friends or yourself treat your partners?

Men need what I call their Man Cards back. Women take them away when we become a man's mom! Learn to find your man's strengths and encourage him. Learn to be sexy again.

I encourage you to take the challenge find out all the little things that make your man happy. Just like women, men feel loved when you do special things for them.

I think the most difficult challenge is change. How do we change the way we act? It is tough but a happy marriage is certainly worth the work. Change, change, change and you will find so much good will happen. Find the key to getting out of your rut.

Get creative and you'll be able to rock his world!

Chapter Two

Love Ideas

Do you need some spice in your relationship, or are you bored? This section is for you. Love ideas will add spice to your life. They are different than date ideas. Most are inexpensive and only take time, thought, and love.

Take these ideas and have him pick his top 20 favorites. Ask him to update the list often so you will have new ideas from which to pick. Always have him write in pencil so you can keep new ideas coming. Tell him that if he has other ideas he would like, he can write his own or circle additional ones that he likes.

If you are short on money, you can write or print virtually anything on a love note and tell him that if you could, you would buy him the world.

This is my favorite chapter of the book because to me, these ideas spark Love Dancing 101.

I want this chapter to ignite a new passion and excitement that's probably been missing in your relationship for a long time.

The more you use this chapter, the better you will get at understanding each other. You will be a love expert in no time.

Learn to be creative and think outside the box. Personalize things as often as you can. Everybody loves seeing and hearing his own name, so when you leave him a special note be sure to include his name. For example: "__________, let's kiss and make up." It will make him laugh.

Remember to always honor each other. Never criticize each other. This is so important. Your words have the power of life and death. Unkind words can kill a marriage. You can destroy a night by one negative comment. Honor each other.

Also remember to never use sex as a bargaining tool. Women don't think of sex in the same way that men do. Women tend to think that's all men care about. I know you are probably saying that's true, but just because you do something special for her, don't expect an immediate payback.

To a woman, love and respect come from outside the bedroom. For men it comes from inside the bedroom. Remember to respect her outside the bedroom and she will learn to respect you in the bedroom. Before long, you will be doing some amazing love dancing.

Don't forget to give her a copy of To Know Her is To Love Her. You will find some great sexy suggestions to ignite new love passion in your life.

Great Date Ideas

Okay, women. Here is your chance to show them boys how it's done!

Sometimes we think dating is just for women but in reality, men need attention and lots of it. Become creative. Most of the time you could plan a great night at home and he would be happy with a good meal and some love dancing.

Try to think of guy things to do. For example, take him out for crab legs and learn how to be sexy when you eat them.

Buy remote-control boats, take them to the park and race them. Finish with some quiet time together.

Try to plan at least one date a month that he will like. Be spontaneous. Surprise him often with love ideas, love notes, or a date night.

Read him the list of date ideas and ask him to say yes or no for those he likes. Write the info down on his top dates and there you have it. Simple, user friendly, and he really didn't have to do much. He will reap the fringe benefits of this project.

How much easier can it get? Before you know it, he will be smiling all the time.

People will wonder what happened to him. (I know, his Love tank is finally full!)
