So you want to learn thirty ways to love your wife! Well, we can tell you that contrary to what many men may think and say, it isn’t “Have intercourse, have sexual relations, have intercourse…” thirty different ways.”

That could be thirty ways for a wife to love her husband but usually women see intercourse as only ONE of the ways to make love to her —which you may have already figured out by now.

Your wife is usually more responsive to making love by having intercourse after and because she feels cared for and receives affection from her husband.

As authors Bill and Pam Farrel say (which we agree):

“Your wife’s view of sex is much different than yours. Her sexual fulfillment is connected to everything else in her life. When she feels close to you emotionally, she is more responsive. When she is in touch with her children and is proud of how you father them, she is more attracted to you. When her career is moving forward and you are supportive of her pursuits, she finds you irresistible. The more you are a part of her life, the stronger is her desire for you.”

If you need a little more explanation about this concept of WHY it’s so important that you touch her heart (before we point you to specific ways to do this), below is an article to read that may be able to help you:

    (USA)  I’m starting to resent and possibly be jealous of my husband’s friends. He usually doesn’t drink much but ever since the guys in the neighborhood constantly have beer readily available, he’s over on the next block. I hardly see him when they’re home. One has children all over the place (doesn’t take care of any of them) and is always talking about how he can get any girl to be w/him (including me) (ugh!) and the other, although more respectful has an on/off relationship with his girl which drinks even more than they do.

    He’d hang out constantly from afternoon into the the next day if I didn’t get on him so much. I even tried to be around them to understand why they or he wants so much of each other’s time. Did I mention there’s no responsibilities and stay with others. The player, as mentioned before, has told me that he puts me on a pedestal but I don’t see it or feel that way when he finally gets back home. At least he gives our children some time sometimes. I’m tired of waiting on him and it hurts when he doesn’t try to show that I matter too. What should a woman (faithful, loyal, affectionate, honest and handling everything financially -no other choice), that’s tried everything do!?
