You will note that satisfying anybody is a tremendous task.
This is because of the complicated nature of human beings.
Your spouse is not left out, satisfying him or her is going to take a lot of hard work, patience, tactics, skill, courage and a lot of self discipline.
It also has to come with a balance knowing that you cannot take the place of God in your spouses’ life.
For it is only God that can satisfy wholly.
However, there is a responsibility bestowed upon us to try to satisfy our spouse.
Satisfying each other is a task for both the husband and wife.
The husband should try and satisfy his wife as much as the wife should satisfy her husband.
We should try and satisfy ourselves emotionally, physically, sexually, psychologically, intellectually and otherwise.
Here are some helpful ways to satisfy your spouse.
1. Satisfy your spouse physically by looking beautiful, neat, and trendy.
You can also make you spouse delight in you by being helpful with house chores or get your wife a weekend or daily help.
It is also not out of place to assist your spouse by cooking delicious dishes for him.
You can also make the home welcoming and peaceful.
2. Be emotionally available for your spouse.
Let him or her have your shoulder, chest and laps to lie on.Provide comfort and succor for your spouse.
Not every time is jeru trip wanted, just provide a comfortable resting place for your spouse.
Go to places of interest together.

3. Provide support for your spouse.

There will be waiting period, where your spouse is trusting God for something.
At this time, your spouse will appreciate your support and will be satisfied in knowing you are a friend indeed.
4. Give your spouse regular ‘Jeru trips‘
Jeru trips provides both pleasure and relives tension.

The Bible teaches us that our bodies does not belong to us
The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.
So satisfy your spouse with Jeru trips when it is needed and when it is wanted.
5. Engage your spouse intellectually.
Let him be able to match your level of intelligence when he is talking.
Be close enough to discuss any matter that concerns him or her.
If your spouse likes football, be able to discuss it with him.
Have a basis for discussing each other’s point of interest.
Try as much as it lies with you to satisfy your spouse so that you would have taken away the temptation of looking for a friend outside the marriage.
