Have you asked your partner if they love you?
When my wife and I married we felt madly in love. We couldn’t keep our hands off each other.
A friend remarked, “If they do this in public imagine what they do in private.”
But life changes.
Through years of growing businesses and raising kids our relationship grew complacent.
Gone was the feeling no amount of time together was enough.
Sometimes, both exhausted from running, any time together felt like too much.
Our kids grew up and left home. They were replaced by other children, our elderly parents.
Unfortunately, they wouldn’t mind us.
Add to that a huge uptick in my time demands and we had little left over for each other.
Our relationship grew distant and felt more like a strategic partnership.
Love seemed like some sweet memory of a fantasy world.
One Sunday afternoon my wife was working in our study. I came in and sat down.
“Could we talk?” I asked.
“Sure,” she replied.
“What’s happened to us? I mean, where’s the love we once felt?”
“I don’t understand.”
“I don’t feel often that you really love me. And, I’m guessing, you probably feel the same.”
“Well, I try to show you love by all the things I do.”
“And you do well. I’m not complaining. I guess the question is, do you really love me?”
“Yes, I love you. Do you love me?”
“Yes, I do love you. I just think we both need to say it a lot more.”
“Then we will.”
We talked for a while, then I walked over and kissed her. Later we got back to that imagine what they do in private part.
From that day on I’ve tried to tell her I love her most every day. And she has too.
Seeing you’re loved is important. Hearing you’re loved is enthralling
