Someone who only speaks German cannot communicate with someone who only speaks Spanish. Each needs to learn the other’s vocabulary. Communication can only happen when there is mutual understanding.

Dr. Emerson and Sarah Eggerichs present the Love and Respect Marriage Conference – a dynamic, high energy, practical seminar designed to help couples and singles achieve the relationship of their dreams. Based on Ephesians 5:33 which says, “So again I say, each man must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband” and the three groundbreaking principles taught in Dr. Eggerichs’ best seller Love and Respect, Emerson and Sarah bring a message that imparts revolutionary insights on how to achieve a brand-new level of intimacy and friendship.

Communication is not the key to marriage. Mutual understanding is the key to a successful marriage.

Based on Ephesians 5:33, wives speak the language of love and husbands speak the language of respect. When the husband speaks love to his wife and the wife speaks respect to her husband, they understand each other and communication follows.

Why love for her and respect for him?

In Ephesians 5:33, husbands are commanded to love their wives and wives are commanded to respect their husbands. The assumption is that a wife needs love. Since she needs love she is certain to hear words of love and negatively react to unloving tones.

Likewise, a husband needs respect. Since he needs respect he is certain to respond to words of respect and be less than positive when hearing disrespectful expressions.
