The Energizing Cycle Part I
Emerson shares how husbands and wives have needs that only the other can meet. Emerson explains that a wife can meet a husband's needs and motivate him through respect and that a husband can meet his wife's needs and motivate her with love. The Energizing Cycle is discussed, which is his love motivates her respect and her respect motivates his love. The remainder of the episode is spent briefly outlining how a husband can show love to his wife by applying a simple acronym C.O.U.P.L.E. which stands for Closeness, Openness, Understanding, Peacemaking, Loyalty, and Esteem. The episode concludes with a relationship challenge for husbands to look for ways to meet a need their wife has that will show her love and most likely motivate her to show respect.
