Secrets of Blissful


Read Up on Your Mate

When my wife Athena was pregnant we bought a few books on pregnancy, breast feeding and other related subjects. The books weren't just for her, they were for me as well. 

Part of having a blissful relationship is trying to know and understand each other as much as is possible. Athena's body was going through a major transformation. I would never be able to experienc it myself but I was able to be sympathetic and encouraging by reading what she was going through. There have been many times I have been able to assist her through the pregnancy and now nursing and raising our son because I took the time to read many books and magazine articles on those subjects.

Some people would find it odd that I can give my wife breastfeeding advice. Athena is the most important person in the world to me and  I want to know everything I possibly can about her, lactating breasts and all. 

How knowledgeable are you about your mate's profession or degree they are pursuing? Do you know anything about his or her family heritage? Are you able to have a meaningful conversation about their cross-stitch hobby or interest in rugby? If you are a man, do you fully understand what women experience during PMS or menopause? Ladies, have you read up on male menopause?

Couples with the most problems are often the ones that say "I just don't understand him/her." There is a book in the library for practically every subject so if there is something you don't know or understand about your sweetheart, make it a goal to find out.

Something to think about...
