Hi Everyone,
I have heard this question many times on CM. How do you feel about the question ? I think the person requires the whole package. How do you feel ?
Questions or comments... opinions perhaps ?

Let me toss a couple of cents in here...

Since my status is never married I might be way off here, but as I see it I have to be physically attracted along with the rest of the package in order to consider marriage. And even after entering Holy marriage I still have to work on keeping the flame alive as, in my view, the courtship never ends. As a man my job is to keep her feeling safe and secure with me, bring treats and gifts to my lady and not only tell her but also show her that no other woman is of interest for me. This is an ongoing job which I think is too easy to forget. As we never should take God for granted (even though He always is there) we should never take our spouse for granted.

Notice each other, touch each other, call her while being away just to tell her you love her, dance with each other. Keep doing the small things for each other. Not because you have to but because you want to. Everything you do for your spouse, you do for God.

Yes you do try your best to continue working on the relationship" because you want to " you have the right idea about that.However, be aware that there are circumstances that might affect the "pefect" looking spouse.The better or for worse,in sickness and in health part of your vows is not to be taken lightly.Many scenarios come to mind Examples include taking care of two month old baby who you are feeding naturally and a two year old at the same time.There isn't much time for you.Running to get everyone out to school on time.Illnesses of anyone in the family(eg.a housefull of chikenpox). Focusing on getting everyone to do their homework.During marriage there is less time to deal with on "me".Supporting and helping each other through it all is one way in which the relationship grows.If you are both interested in fitness it would be great to help each other but it can't be a the same as before all the children or other things that may occur in your lives.

Yes those are absolutely valid points and I agree. But if I want to enjoy the fruits of her sacrifices I'll have to make sure she's able to perform those. If that means to help with the kids so she can get her workout, or cook, clean, do the laundry or whatever I can to help her, it's my obligation to do so. Perhaps hire help a couple of hours a week to be able to do some workout together. I'd love to help in any way, shape or form I could.
