Sooner or later, it happens to every traveler.  You reach to steady your suitcase, or step out of the hotel room for some ice – and by the time you hear the fateful click, it’s too late.  You’re locked out.  If only you had remembered the key!


Tragically, the same situation is all too common in marriage relationships.  We find ourselves on the outside of our spouse’s locked heart, trying desperately to open it again.


In this video, Gary and Barb Rosberg reveal the keys to emotional intimacy for women – and the surprising spiritual benefit for men who honor their wives.  


Dr. Gary and Barb Rosberg


Barb Rosberg:  Intimacy is the number two love need of both men and women.  It’s just that we spell it differently.  How do women spell it?  T-A-L-K.


Gary Rosberg:   A woman is honored by her husband when he listens to her, he connects with her, and then she begins to experience emotional intimacy.  But a lot of times we don’t know how to do it.  How do we let our wives into the interior of our hearts?  Scripture has a lot to say.  In 1 Peter 3:7, we read:


“Husbands, in the same way, be considerate as you live with your wives and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.”


When we talk about consideration, when we talk about living with respect with our wives, our goal is so that God will hear our prayers.  And when scripture says live with her as the weaker vessel, that doesn’t mean second class; it means she’s more fragile.  You need to be tender.  You need to be gracious.  You need to be respectful of your wife.
