Thirty-Seven Things to Say to Your Spouse

Daniel Akin’s book God on Sex: The Creator’s Ideas About Love, Intimacy and Marriage, an extended engaging exposition of Song of Solomon, includes a Steve Stephens’ list of 37 things to say to your spouse.  Use them wisely:

  • “Good job!”
  • “You are wonderful!”
  • “That was really great.”
  • “You look gorgeous today.”
  • “I don’t feel complete without you.”
  • “I appreciate all the things you’ve done for me all these years.”

  • “I wanted you today.”
