Years ago, my friend told me about this marriage book she read about how to “affair-proof” your marriage. I was instantly skeptical because my husband and I have a solid marriage and the word “affair” had never even entered my mind. She felt the same about her marriage, but assured me that it improved her relationship immensely.
Soon after, I decided to look it up on Amazon. It had great reviews and even a fun little quiz at the end (I’m a sucker for a good quiz) and so I bought it. And I’m so glad I did. The book covers a man and woman’s five basic needs. They are not at all similar (but of course neither are men and women), yet each of them rang true with my husband and I.
As I actively applied each need to my husband, and treated them of utmost importance, I immediately noticed that he was happier. And he noticed too! In fact, he was so happy that he decided to read it so he could learn how to meet my needs. I keep the book handy and whenever I read it, our marriage seems to naturally flow. I don’t automatically meet all of his needs without a good conscious effort, but this book is a great reminder of how I can “affair-proof” my marriage.
