The Three Ts" of Marriage

Now tell me, what is it that women really want? Surely the president of the United States should know. In 1905, President Grover Cleveland was quoted in the Ladies' Home Journal as saying, "Sensible women do not want to vote." Oh, well, maybe he meant, "boat." We've all heard of the "3 Rs," but if you want to get to the heart of a woman, try the "3 Ts." Women want Time, Talk, and Touch.

In fact, most significant relationships involve these three essential ingredients. Time is the first priority. Without it, the other two aren't possible. Talk is the preeminent intercourse that makes the other kind even more glorious. And genuine, non-sexual Touch is a critical component that has been lost in a sea of immorality and selfish pursuits. The Creator of both sexes, who also designed their desires, inspired these words: "...husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered" (I Pet. 3:7).

When we unselfishly become considerate and respectful  of women, the "3 Ts" will be natural. Then our "favorite girl" will fall in love with us all over again. Remember: Smart men practice the "3 Ts" with sensible women (Eph. 5:23-33).

"Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth. Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy  thee at all times; and be thou Wished always With her love" -Proverbs 5:18,19
