Love Expression in Marriage-It is imperative for us to understand that lack of love expression in marriage has led many

marriages to breakups. Life after marriage should be filled with the expression of love and

intimacy which includes the followings: Love Expression in Marriage

1. Let there be oneness: Do not just be together, be one. Togetherness is physical; oneness is

a state of mind. Let there be a unity of purpose, unity of direction, and unity of focus.

2. Be committed to each other: No matter what happens be committed to each other. Never

think of calling it quits. Stay long enough in that marriage to make it a success; be faithful

and be fruitful.Love Expression in Marriage

3. Sacrifices: Be ready to make sacrifices for each other irrespective of your individual

differences. Do not be content with what your spouse will do for you, rather, look out for


what you can do for him or her. Serve your spouse when it is convenient or when it is not

convenient. Learn to sacrifice; do not always be at the receiving end, be at the giving end.Love Expression in Marriage

4. Be selfless in your thinking and actions: Do everything without selfishness. Be selfless; put

your spouse first in everything. Do not say "mine" but say "ours". Look out for the good of

your partner, by all means; celebrate each other's existence.Love Expression in Marriage

especially should not allow their ego to deprive them of the enjoyment in being playful with

their wives?

your marriage. Laugh over mistakes, make positive jest of each other, light up the whole

house with laughter and make your home a place to be.Love Expression in Marriage

8. Be generous with touching: Touch each other; make it your habit to touch each other as

you talk. Cuddle as you sleep, massage each other's body, sleep on the rug or sofa with your

spouse head on your laps. Walk the street hand in hand, rest on each other's shoulder and

make your home the best.


9. Give love making a chance: Do not rape each other; don't just have sex, make love. Get

fulfillment in your bedroom life, celebrate sex in your marriage, it is a gift from God. Never

allow sex to become the bone of contention in your marriage. Talk about it; improve yourself.

Learn, read books, go for counsel. By all means, be a better lover in the bedroom.Love Expression in Marriage
