Reciprocate all gestures and appreciations, never pretend about it. Songs of Solomon 7:10-13
In marriage, both couple has the responsibility of working it out to success. You don’t need to pretend about your affection for one another. When a man proposes to a woman, if there is no acceptance there will never be marriage in the first place. This shows that both man and wife have the responsibility of ensuring happiness in the home. In a situation where only one partner is professing, admiring and showing affection while the other is just there waiting to receive without his or her own input, then you are frustrating your partner.
This attitude is common with women, i don’t know where they get the idea from. They will tell you God only ask the woman to submit it is the man that should love. Women expect that it is only a man that should always say that word I LOVE YOU, to them, it gives them joy. What about the man, you think he doesn’t need it? This is why many women have lost their husband to others who knows and apply the secret even when she cannot withstand them in beauty and character.
Don’t men need expression of love and assurance of a woman’s feeling for them? Reciprocate every show of affection as a man and as a wife. As a woman, tell your husband I love you, admire him, and show him you are happy to have married him. The more you do this the more your affection towards him grow and vice versa. What does the bible say about this? Songs of Solomon 7:10-13
“I am my beloved’s, and his desire is toward me.
Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the field; let us lodge in the villages.
Let us get up early to the vineyards; let us see if the vine flourish, whether the tender grape appear, and the pomegranates bud forth: there will I give thee my loves.
The mandrakes give a smell, and at our gates are all manner of pleasant fruits, new and old, which I have laid up for thee, O my beloved”.
