as for the first two; women like attention and they like to be told clearly that they are loved. so don’t be stingy in expressing your love for your wife. if you become limited in expressing your love, you will create a barrier of harshness between you and her, and there will be a decrease in affection.
The greatest disease in the West today is not TB or leprosy; it is being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for. We can cure physical diseases with medicine, but the only cure for loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love. There are many in the world who are dying for a piece of bread but there are many more dying for a little love. The poverty in the West is a different kind of poverty -- it is not only a poverty of loneliness but also of spirituality. There's a hunger for love, as there is a hunger for God.
