I have a husband who is just very content by nature. Fortunately, one of my emotional needs was for consistency. But, that means they are pretty much always happy, seldom express needs, and you never really feel lik eyou know when you hit a "home run" with them.

I've found that turning off the tv has been the greatest way for us to end up talking about things we'd like to do together and make mutual plans. I always have to pray about it and let the Lord arrange times were it's his idea. My simply asking seldom works.

Good luck!
