Tomorrow is July the Fourth. The fireworks will fill the skies. But I want to ask you a question. Will there be any fireworks in your marriage? I’m not talking about arguments. I’m talking about romantic love. What many couples do not understand is that romantic love has two stages. The first, is the euphoric stage that we normally call “falling in love.” No effort is required. We are swept along by our emotions. But the second stage is ‘covenant love.’ It requires effort and information. We must first know how to express love in a way that will touch the heart of our spouse. Then we must choose to do it. I call it, learning to speak the ‘love language’ of your spouse. When you speak their love language – there will be fireworks in your marriage.
