My husband does the most interesting posts on The Generous Husband. Here is a recent one. You just have time to join the challenge.
The Gottman Institute has an on-line test to help you see how well you know your spouse.
Aside from just taking it, I see a couple of ways to use this to build your marriage. After you run through it, look at the places where you said “no” – these are things that need attention. If you want to be even more daring, print out the completed test and ask your bride if she thinks you have answered accurately.
Repeat for her answers.
2nd Annual 7 Days of Sex ChallengeSeven days of sex? One Extraordinary Marriage is doing the 2nd Annual 7 Days of Sex Challenge starting this Sunday. If you can’t (or know she won’t) do seven days, you can still participate. Sex does not have to mean intercourse to mutual climax. If you are both happy with something else, the go for that. Try to be sexual in some way seven days in a row.
