The LORD God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man...
We were made to be mans confidant, his partner, his helper, his supporter, etc. How do you support your man when he doesn't support you?

What counts in making a happy marriage is not so much how compatible you are, but how you deal with incompatibility. -Leo Tolstoy
We motivate you to accept the imperfections, and annoyances, accept them and continue to love...

Since the day we first met,
I knew it was love,
God answered my prayers,
you came down from above...
You gave me your heart,
and taught me to trust,
for the first time ever,
it was more than just lust.
Your sweet loving words,
are not to be compared,
I am forever your partner,
my soul I have bared...
Every day I wake up, with a smile a mile long, I know that we are solid, I know that we are strong.
So never put into question,
my feelings being true,
because I have found my one and only,
And I will always love you.

SCENERIO: Times are hard now a days, and ends just are not meeting. Husband tells his wife to ask her Father for a loan. Wife refuses to do it, because she knows that her father doesn't like her husband 100% for unknown reasons, and she doesn't want to add any fuel to the fire, by making her father feel like her husband isn't a good provider. She tells husband that we will find a way with Gods help. Husband says ok, but he doesn't understand why his FIL doesn't like him, afterall he's been with his daughter for over a decade and has only asked for help once, and that was for their wedding, and shouldn't he want to help if his daughter, and grandkids are in need?

If you are in a marriage with very little affection, whether it's sexual or nonsexual variety, you most likely are in a disconnected phase of your relationship.
Some studies report that it takes eight to ten meaningful touches a day for a person to thrive.
If you are not naturally affectionate, don't fake being overly mushy, but work on it. If your family background or ethnicity didn't offer much affection to you when you were growing up, then you'll need to make an extra effort, but don't hold back or use it as an excuse for a lack of connection in your marriage.
Couples who hold hands, kiss passionately, and bring gifts like flowers and chocolate to one another are couples who have a much better chance for a healthy relationship.
Paul's advice to the Roman church was "Outdo one another in showing honor" (Romans 12:10 RSV). You may not feel like showering your spouse with affection. But no matter how you feel, choose to intentionally focus on bringing affection to your relationship.

Marriage is a unity. Two individual lives, being shared, and becoming one. So as individuals we have interest and dreams that we aspire towards. How do you convince your spouse to do something that you really want to do, that you feel you have to do, but they just don't want to do it? For example: You are a quiet, small town type of person and you really don't like the city, you've tried to make it work, but you just want to move. Not only cause of your anxieties over city life, but you also feel that the schools will be better if you moved, taxes will be lower if you move, etc., but your spouse still isn't budging. How do you deal?
