| | Re: How can I teach my wife what love is?
MrRomantic, try though they might, I don't think anyone can help with your question. That is, for one thing, because love is different for everyone, and your wife knows what it is for herself, so it certainly isn't something you can teach her. But it's mainly because I don't see the problem as being that she needs to know what love is. What she needs to know is what commitment means. As far as loving her, from what I can tell of your two threads, you are doing things right. You are loving her and showing her that you love her. I don't know that any woman could want for more. I think she is thinking there IS more. Or as you say, she wants that "new love" feeling all the time, which is entirely unrealistic.
She needs to understand what commitment means. Along with that comes the understanding that she is supposed to pour all her efforts, all her energy, all her time, and all her faith into you and the marriage. That's what she doesn't seem to get. She also needs to know how it feels to be in your shoes, where you give someone else your heart, thoughts, time, and attention. She needs to know how hurtful and disrespectful it is.
