"I don't always understand what he needs or wants from me." Most wives want a heart-to-heart connection with their husbands. But men often communicate their needs in ways that seem strange to women. How to bridge the gap? Straight from a veteran dad and husband come these insightful, unexpected, and occasionally offbeat ideas. Bestselling author Jay Payleitner digs deep to give practical insight into how a woman can: see the ways her husband does want to connect ...which may be different than what she expects; encourage him - not overwhelm him - with her words; understand why sex is such a big deal; make space for him to step up and participate in family life; and, be alert to his "hero moments" and respect and appreciate him. A husband does want to be close to his wife. Here are great steps to strengthening a marriage by making room for that closeness to happen.
