Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus. That’s the name of a popular book by John Gray and a phrase used to describe the differences between men and women, husbands and wives. We look different, we are wired different, our anatomy is different, and we communicate differently. Boy, do we communicate differently!

With so many differences you’d think it’d be impossible for us to connect in our relationships, let alone love your wife fully. Sometimes you may feel like it’s a challenge to love your wife in the way she needs you, or that you are lacking something necessary to do so.

Loving somebody who is so different has been a challenge for me on occasion and I’m betting a challenge to you as well. But we aren’t lacking anything for this. In fact, we were born with everything we need to do so.  We are born with five senses that can be powerful when used to focus on loving our wives. We just have to realize this and be intentional about it.

Here are 5 ways to use your senses to love your wife fully.
