Have you ever met a married couple who was in the thick of an argument or crisis, and when asked how it all began, they say something to the effect of, "He always leaves his laundry on the floor!" or "All she does is nag me about the dumbest things!"
Most Christian couples say that they place a high value on "Spiritual Intimacy". Meaning, they want to be connected with their spouse when it comes to spiritual things. They have a high desire to go to church together, pray together, read the Bible together, and talk about God together.

Life can be like buying a car.
We get so excited about the cars we drive. Think back to the first car that took you to high school or college. If you were like me you wanted something that reflected your social status and your identity. If you were a car guy it needed to be a nice ride. If you were a hipster you bought a Subaru or a Prius. And if you were from the country you wanted a 4x4. Your car reflected to the world who you were.
When it comes to Valentine’s Day, I suck as a husband. I rarely take my wife out on a date, and can’t think of the last time I bought her a gift.
It’s not that I’m not romantic, or that I don’t like spoiling my wife. In fact, the opposite is true. Each year on our anniversary, I put together a big trip for us, and planning it is one of my favorite parts of the year.
So as this Valentine’s Day approaches, I started to ask myself why, like most men, I hate this holiday so much. And I think I may have found the answer.
