An alternative St Valentine's Day - savour dialogue

My friend Evelyne Colongo-Oberson and her husband Christian spend time in their local Roman Catholic parish on mariage preparation. They have three young children and busy professional, personal and social lives but they still take time to talk with couples preparing to take the plunge into wedded bliss.
This year together with "La Maison du Couple" in Lausanne they are taking things a step further and encouraging couples to come to a romantic candelit supper for St Valentine's Day. The supper will encourage savouring dialogue as well as savouring the meal itself. I think it's a great idea.

So maybe for St Valentine's Day you should offer your significant other the joy of a conversation, savour the taste and texture of speaking and listening to one another
