A while ago, I heard you ask how we keep our husbands happy, and I thought I'd throw in my two cents! I love my marriage as much as my husband. Neither of us toys around with anything that could lead us astray. I do the kind and loving things you talk about on the air. I also refrain from things you have said push men away. And then I trust in everything he does. I trust that every decision he makes or information he gives me is from decades of wisdom and a life of goodness.
After all the groundwork above is set, there are a million other things we do to make us happy. We play and we laugh. We turn almost everything we do into an adventure. Simply keeping a neat and tidy home makes him happy. I rub his feet when we watch the romantic comedies that I love. I listen to one of his stories for the thousandth time and respond to it as if it's the first time I've heard it. I watch his beloved football games with him. I act like a lady in public, as there's enough crass and loud behavior all around.
While this is a jumble of thoughts, if the foundation is there, two people can have a magnificent marriage. If it's not there, nothing will make that marriage strong.
