bringing back the flame of love and romance in your relationship this valentine
Looking around me, what I see is more and more relationships that lack the necessary ingredients of a relationship which are; love, care, happiness, romance, a little pain and pleasure. The reason for the absence of the basic ingredients of a relationship in our society today is because many of us have neglected the natural law of give and take.
The unseen hands of the agents behind giving and taking are what ultimately bring love and romance in relationships. Even God Himself (for those that believe Him anyway, like me) observed this law of giving and getting when he created us. Am sure you are not going to ask me how? Ok! In case you don’t know, He gave out His own breathe to bring us forth.
Valentine is once again around the corner and is us giving another opportunity to experience the awesome power of giving and taking. Before you ask me how giving and taking can help bring back the flame of love and romance in your relationship this valentine period, read the story in the next few paragraphs.
There is this man who once hated his wife because of the following reasons; she is nagging, she is lazy, she is wicked, she does not show him love, etc and the wife in turn equally hate him because he is not; caring, loving, cheerful, encouraging, etc
One day, this man got tired of the whole show and wanted to put an end to it all. He didn’t just want to file for divorce but, to do it in such a way that it will really hurt the wife. So he decided to seek the help of his psychologist friend.
His psychologist friend told him that the only way to make his wife feel terribly bad and hurt after divorce is to treat her like a queen for the next three months and then file for a divorce. This way, she will really feel the burnt.
That day, before the woman could come back from work, the man had arranged things at home and threw wide his arm to give the wife a warmth reception- though the woman ignored him. Before the woman could finish removing her clothes, the husband had already brought the food he bought from one of the restaurants around- again, the wife never accepted the food.
That night, the woman never had a good right rest; her mind was busy pondering over what has come over her husband. Because she was worried and could not sleep, she woke up very early the following morning to prepare breakfast for herself and the husband. They now engaged in a kind of cold challenge to see who will serve the other the most and over time, the whole thing that was started as a pretence now become real and romance and love once again found their way back into the relationship.
Two months passed going to three months before the psychologist friend called to remind his friend that the time has come for them to file for their divorce. Are you out of your mind? Was the response he got from his friend, how can you ask me to divorce my queen? No way. The psychologist left happily knowing he has done his job perfectly well.
