As a date night discussion guide

Foundation

Helps husbands and wives become intentional about meeting their mate’s greatest need

Tools

  • Schedule a dinner or coffee date.
  • Each spouse should listen to the 30-minute “Happy Wife, Happy Life” message by Pastor Jack Graham (available at JackGraham.org).
  • Each spouse should spend a few minutes writing down answers to the questions on the reverse side.   

During the Date 

Spend 15 minutes discussing your answers.   

Husbands

Read aloud Ephesians 5:25–28 and answer the following questions…

  • Do you agree that your wife’s primary marital need is to be cherished by you?
  • What are some of the ways you try to show her sacrificial love?
  • What are 2-3 ways she needs you to show love that you might find difficult?
  • What do you think your wife would say if invited to offer a few “baby step” suggestions on better meeting her needs? 

Wives

Read aloud Ephesians 5:22–24 and answer the following questions…

  • Do you agree that your husband needs to feel respected?
  • What are some of the ways you try to show that you admire and respect him?
  • What are 2-3 things he would appreciate but might be more difficult for you to do?
  • What do you think your husband would say if invited to offer a few “baby step” suggestions on better meeting his needs?

Together

Read aloud Ephesians 5:31–33.  Then hold hands and pray these words…

Dear God, Help us to better fulfill the purpose of our marriage by modeling the relationship between Christ and His Bride. Amen
