Love starts out as that butterfly feeling in the pit of your stomach; a physical emotion that washed over you when you first met your soon-to-be spouse.


During this get-to-know-you stage you were swept up with everything they did with you, such as holding your hand, rubbing close to you, and those kisses.

Your emotions were cranked to the hilt and everything was great.

You’re happy. You’re in love.

You get engaged, then married and as time passed the feelings of love began to disappear. Those fun things your spouse did early on in your courtship now bug you.

The physical reaction you once had isn’t there any longer. Its great to have your spouse around and yet you have work, kids, and other activities that occupy you.

Even more time passes and real world issues cant be ignored any longer. You’re at a point where you don’t care about your spouse or your marriage.

Its at this moment that you need to realize that love is a verb. Love is not about that butterfly feeling, but in you showing your love through action.

This week we share how you can take your marriage from an attitude of “I Don’t Care” to one where you are taking action and showing your love.

  1. This was a really great episode. I really appreciate what you said about taking action to create love. You have a really important lesson to teach here. Many people, of course myself included, never learned this from our parents, and now we need to learn it as we go along in our marriage. I need to be reminded to do it in my own marriage. And when my family does not remind to do it I really need you guys to remind me! So thank you. Sara M
