I am my beloveds, and his desire is for me. Song of Solomon 7:10
So often, a man thinks romancing his spouse means buying a certain gift or doing a certain thing or creating a certain situation. And, yes, all of these things can communicate romance to a woman.
But romance for a woman is all about relationship and time, about feeling safe and accepted, about simply being together.
So when I think of a true, romantic memory, I’m taken back to one day when my wife and I took a whole day off work—not to do any house chores or catch up on some writing, but to spend it with me and do whatever I wanted her to do. Hallelujah!
We enjoyed a leisurely breakfast. Then we went inside, cleaned up a little, hopped in the car and just took off. We drove for hours, stopping where we wanted, doing what we wanted. And in a sense, it was almost like being on a fresh honeymoon to me.
For those few hours, we had no responsibilities. No kids or work to worry about. We were just out having fun together. I had my wife all to myself, away from the everyday demands of work and parenting and pressure. We talked and laughed together all day long and it was absolutely wonderful.
No, it wasn’t the typical sweep-me-off-my-feet moment. My wife writes, “I didn’t feel like I was being carried to the castle to live happily ever after. It was much richer and sweeter and deeper than all of that.
It was romance in its purest form, being chosen as my husband’s delight, seeing his love for me in the joy he found by spending a day …” just with me and me alone”.
In conclusion, romancing your wife does not have to mean buying a certain gift or doing a certain thing or creating a certain situation. All of these things can communicate romance to a woman, but romance for a woman is all about relationship and time, about feeling safe and accepted, about simply being together. I pray that God will help your marriage and make it sweeter than you planned it in Jesus name. Amen
