But the woman has to balance her love of her husband with respect for his authority. For instance, though she shouldn’t expect to get away with speeding or any other crime, she knows that her husband loves her and will do anything to protect her.

Let her breasts fill you at all times with delight; be intoxicated always in her love” (Prov. 5:18–19). In other words, be madly in love with your husband or wife— be passionate with him. Be captivated by your spouse; be intoxicated by her. Be completely satisfied in your spouse’s love. Not only does this bring a couple closer together, it goes a long way toward keeping our eyes from lusting after someone else.
