  • The First Thing She Can't Do Without - Affection
  • The First Thing He Can't Do Without - Sexual Fulfillment
  • She Needs Him to Talk to Her - Conversation
  • He Needs Her to Be His Playmate - Recreational Companionship
  • She Needs to Trust Him Totally - Honesty and Openness
  • He Needs a Good-looking Wife - An Attractive Spouse
  • She Needs Enough Money to Live Comfortably
  • He needs Peace and Quite - Domestic Support
  • She Needs Him to Be a Good Father - Family Support
  • He Needs Her to Be Proud of Him - Admiration

  • This is from a good marriage book, His Needs; Her Needs by Willard Harley, Jr. I read the book, then heard him speak. He has summarized the most typical needs of men and women in relationships and he admits they are sometimes in a little different order, but usually the five needs for each pop up. It's pretty basic, but profound stuff.

    1. Our pastor had us read this book before we got married, and I give the book to all of the newly-engaged couples in my life. Best marriage book ever, in my opinion. Brian and I have re-read it together a couple of times during our marriage.
