What are the needs of a woman?
Introduce Book: His Needs Her Needs – Building an Affair-Proof Marriage by Willard F. Harley Jr.
Three stages of growth in a marriage
Marriage is work. Takes both people giving 100%. Have no desire to meet the needs of your mate, have no business getting married.

"I learned to treat women with respect." 
"I learned not to just go for looks - go for character."
"I liked Sherry's enthusiasm."
"I will learn how to tell someone I love them if I really mean it."

"I will try to look for the right girl."
"I will think before I marry."
"I learned that there are three different types of love - Eros, Philia, and Agape."
  "I liked that we got to share the qualities of a man/woman each person would want to have."
  "I recommend this discussion be explained to every teen in the world. Go inform them that marriage can be something special and to wait for that one person."
