Marriage Itself Doesn’t Make Your Wife Happy November 28, 2018

It turns out that even the most confident women have a hidden vulnerability that wonders “Am I loveable?” And in marriage that doesn’t go away.

And every day you are answering it either “yes” or “no.”

So how do you answer it well? Part 2 outlines that. But the key point is: after you’re married, pay attention to her just like you did when you were hoping to make her your bride. You don’t need all the candlelight dinners and over-the-top efforts, but in the simple day to day things, keep dating your wife!
