Over the years, I have been approached by several couples who were having marital problems. Here are two people who have promised to honor and sacrifice for each other for the rest of their lives. And now, their marriage is on the rocks. Often, the major complaint that comes from the wife is, “He doesn’t talk to me, anymore!”
Teenagers when they date are known for their long conversations. If you’ve ever had to pay a girl’s cell phone bill you know what I mean. Guys, our wives need us to talk to them. They need to hear us say, “I love you.” And they need us to share about our lives and our thoughts.
The Bible has an inspired loved poem. It is the Song of Solomon. At the beginning and end of this beautiful poem, Solomon’s beloved wife says: “let me hear your voice” (Song 2:14; 8:13).
The truth is, lovers talk, share, commune together, and listen to each other. And this is true whether talking about the intimate love between husband and wife or the family love between parent and child or the friendship that folks feel for their pals.
Being in love demands that we communicate with those we love.
