Have you ever evaluated your ‘Romance Level’?

Try it, with your partner, and rate yourself on a scale of 1 to 5, where 1 is the lowest if the statement below is absolutely False or give yourself 5 when the statement is undoubtedly True.

Put down the middle 3 if your answer is ‘sometimes’ or either 2 or 4 depending how false or true it is.

Ready? Here are the seven statements:

1. We are still very romantically in love; expressed in our strong marriage

2. We’ve learned to express romantic love in ways meaningful to each other

3. We’ve not closed our hearts to our spouse thru unforgiveness or bitterness

4. We’re totally committed to being the kind of spouse God created us to be

5. We truly enjoy being together and doing things together

6. We experience oneness in all areas of marriage as we have common goals

7a. (Wife): I am attracted to my husband because he honors and cares for me
7b. (Husband): My heart is drawn to my wife because of her gentle spirit

If your total is less than 20, your romance flame is flickering and could go out! Compare your answers with your partners’. Notice how much opinions differ!
