I want to see you deeply. I'm curious about who you are. After all these years I still want to know who you are, every day. Touch her with your full attention. Before you put your hand on her, notice the sensation in your hand. Notice what happens the moment you make contact.
What happens in your body? What do you feel? Notice the most subtle sensations and emotions. This is sometimes described as mindfulness.
Tell her everything you're noticing, moment after moment. You don't have time for all this. How about five minutes? Five minutes a day. Will you commit to that? I'm not talking about extravagant dinners or date nights although these are fine too. I'm talking about five minutes a day to be completely present with the woman you share your life with. To be completely open-- listening and seeing without judgement. Will you do that? I bet once you start, once you get a taste, you won't want to stop. This post first appeared on www.

If this looks somewhat familiar, it's because it was taken at the same time and place as an earlier image I posted about a month ago. This one is added to my photostream mainly because I have felt somewhat uninspired lately where photography is concerned, and also because in this image, the couple appear to be contemplating the possibility of breaking up. Cheaters do not necessarily want a breakup when they are looking for a lover. Those who chose to go outside their marriage do so out of selfish needs or simply some adventure. He has two girlfriends who give everything he needs so why would he want to ruin that balance by leaving either one, more so the mother of his children?
Call it the ideal situation for any guy. Clean clothes, food, kids, sex, an escape, you name it. He loves his wife If he really loves you as he claims, he should have left his wife already. The true reason he married her is because he loves her. Despite their challenges, he still goes back home. If he truly loved you as the mistress, he should be willing to sacrifice his family and wife to be with you regardless of the consequences.
The other woman will always be just that and she will continue wasting her time on a man who will never be hers. We all want and need love. This is essential to the human race.
LOVE, MARRIAGE, AND FAMILY
We need to help each other, cooperate with each other, and reaffirm each other. Mystery and a kind of mysticism surround love. Why do people fall in love? The heart is the seat of the emotions, one of the three spiritual centers of the person, along with the intellect and the will. God is important to your love relationship! Love of God grows as you mature in life. We become grateful for all his gifts, such as the beauty of creation and our family.
And we become especially grateful for his forgiveness when we fall. His gifts to us are so plentiful that it becomes only fair and natural that we love him. We begin to appreciate that "God is love.
We are the happiest when we are living in harmony with God and nature. Someone who loves God will strive to be good, honest, and faithful, and develop all the values necessary to sustain a love relationship through the years. Loving God means you are both trying to live His way and that you are being fair and true to each other. Christianity teaches that love is a relationship between man-God-woman , that is, that God is the middle term. When a relationship is only between two, one always has the upper hand in the relationship by being able to break it, for as soon as one has broken away, the relationship is broken.
But when there are three, one person cannot do this. The third, as mentioned, is love itself, which the innocent sufferer can hold to in the break, and then the break has no power over him. The existentialist Kierkegaard described love as uniting the temporal with the eternal. This is best understood when you lose someone you love, such as your mother or father.
Even though your loved one has died and is no longer with you on earth, your love lives on for the one you cherish. In true love between a man and woman, there is an evolution from attraction and desire to a feeling of good will towards the other person. A healthy integration of sensuality, sentiment, and loving kindness takes place, so that one looks at the other with love, and treasures the other person. Chastity is important, for each person moderates desire and sexuality to allow friendship, tenderness, and a spiritual bond to grow. If you truly love someone, you feel responsible for them.
Love finds its natural and proper expression in the union of two persons. Respect for the dignity of the beloved is given in union through marriage. Both man and woman affirm each other, until a commitment of the will and union through marriage takes place, a self-surrender of each for the other. Lewis in his book The Four Loves describes four kinds of human love: Storge , or affection, is the natural love a parent has for a child. Eros , or romantic love, is the desire two have for each other. Plato considered eros something like poetic rapture upon seeing the beauty of another.
Eros is the longing for the beauty and company of the beloved when two persons fall in love. This is in contrast to someone who has sexual desire without being in love, who wants to use the other strictly for selfish pleasure. A utilitarian relationship, in which the sexual partner becomes an object for use, holds no long-term possibility for joy, fulfillment, or happiness, but rather leaves one empty, disappointed, and ultimately alone. Philia is the love of friendship, but may have conditions. It gives, but may expect something equal in return.
Agape is true, unconditional love, a generosity of spirit which gives and expects nothing in return.
10 Things Men Secretly Love about Their Wives
It is the love that God has for us. It is love at the highest level. The more true love there is between a man and a woman, or among family and friends, the more successful the relationship. It burns with blazing flame, a raging fire.
Torrents of rain cannot quench love; nor floods sweep it away. Song of Songs 8: Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. First Letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians Paul to the Thessalonians 4: Marriage is the institution of our Creator and blessed in the ceremony of our Churches to realize God's design for love.
Marriage recognizes the interpersonal relationship of man and woman, in which the well-being and self-realization of each partner become a priority for the other. Marriage affords a framework for the mutual love and self-giving of man and woman to each other in human sexuality, and in so doing provides for continuity of the human family.
World religions and the Natural Law have always protected the sanctity of marriage and the family. Jesus Christ stressed the importance of the marriage bond by performing his first miracle at the Wedding Feast at Cana John 2: He supported marriage in his Ministry Matthew
