The Role of a Good Wife Towards Her Husband in an Eternal Marriage ❤

The Role of a Good Wife Towards Her Husband in an Eternal Marriage ❤

1. Respect your husband

When you respect your husband you reverence him, notice him, regard him, honor him, prefer him, and esteem him. It means valuing his opinion, admiring his wisdom and character, appreciating his commitment to you, and considering his needs and values.

primary needs most men have:

- Self-confidence in his personhood as a man
- To be listened to
- Companionship
- To be needed

To me, meeting these needs is what respecting your husband is all about. For example, try to encourage him by being his number one fan. Every husband wants his wife to be on his team, to coach him when necessary, but most of all to be his cheerleader. A husband needs a wife who is behind him, believing in him, appreciating him, and cheering him on as he goes out into the world every day.

2. Love your husband

A good description of the kind of love your husband needs is “unconditional acceptance.” In other words, accept your husband just as he is—an imperfect person.

Love also means being committed to a mutually fulfilling sexual relationship. there is a whole lot more to love than sex, Therefore, you must look at love from their perspective, not just your own.

Surveys show that sex is one of a man’s most important needs—if not the most important. When a wife resists intimacy, is uninterested, or is only passively interested, her husband may feel rejection. It will cut at his self-image, tear at him to the very center of his being, and create isolation.

3. Make love with him as much as possible

Your husband’s sexual needs should be more important and higher on your priority list than menus, housework, projects, activities, and even the children. It does not mean that you should think about sex all day and every day, but it does mean that you find ways to remember your husband and his needs. It means you save some of your energy for him. It keeps you from being selfish and living only for your own needs and wants. Maintaining that focus helps you defeat isolation in your marriage.

4. Submit to the leadership of your husband

The Role of a Good Wife Towards Her Husband in an Eternal Marriage ❤

A wife should submit voluntarily to her husband’s sensitive and loving leadership. Therefore, as you voluntarily submit to your husband, you are completing him. You are helping him fulfill his responsibilities, and you are helping him become the man, the husband, and the leader God intended him to be.

Building oneness in marriage works best when both spouses choose to fulfill their responsibilities voluntarily, with no pressure or coercion. To become the servant-leader God has commanded him to be, he needs your gracious respect and submission. And when he loves you the way he is commanded to, you can more easily submit yourself to that leadership.

Some husbands and wives actually believe submission indicates that women are inferior to men in some way. I have known women who think that if they submit they will lose their identity and become non-persons. Others fear (some with good reason) that submission leads to being used or abused.

Another misconception is that submission means blind obedience on the part of the woman. She can give no input to her husband, question nothing, and only stay obediently barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen.

What does God have in mind? Here is a passage from Scripture:

Wives, be subject to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives and do not be embittered against them. —Colossians 3:18-19

5. Be a helper to your husband

The Role of a Good Wife Towards Her Husband in an Eternal Marriage ❤

While all of us are called to be helpers to others, the Bible places a special emphasis on this responsibility for wives. Genesis tells us that God realized it wasn’t good for man to be alone, and that He decided to make a “helper suitable for him” (Gen. 2:18).

It is interesting to note that the Hebrew meaning of the word helper in this passage is found hereafter in the Bible to refer only to God as He helps us. The fact that this same word is applied to a wife signifies that women have been given tremendous power for good in your husbands’ lives. God has designed wives to help their husbands become all that God intends for them to be.

    Well done. This is what it takes.

    Men are very simple creatures, and have 3 basic needs. If a woman provides all she can for all three he'll remain true and loyal for eternity.
    He'll swim through shark-infested waters to bring her lemonade. __Dr. Laura.

    1. Sex
    2. Food
    3. Love/respect/attention

    So you got #3 and #1, but forgot #2. And where the 'the way to a mans heart is through his stomach' quip comes from. Girls ask what is the best gift she can give her man - the answer is to cook him a nice meal and fuck his brains out. :)

    What is interesting is about half of women get this, maybe as high as 60-70%. The rest either don't believe it, can't be bothered, or simply refuse. And then they wonder why he cheats or bails, looking for one that WILL give them to him.

    And she has to pick a man WORTHY of her love and devotion. Otherwise all bets are off.
    Is this still revelant?

    Yes!!! Somebody got it right.
    Husbands and wives are not equal... there is a hierarchy. I think feminism is the death of marriage. Throw out that 50/50 bull crap
    Is this still revelant?
    • A wise young lady... thanks for sharing 😊

    • I disagree, a woman being the neck for her husband so he can be the head doesn't mean they aren't equal. Not they are not playing the same roles but both are equally needed and should be respected. This isn't just about him. It's about the couple as a unit. A womans choice to willingly give her man that type of support and power should honestly be cherished. Not be told that its her duty, fall in line. It's her choice. That's what means it precious.

    Excellent thread you should be an editor you'll get my vote. I'm glad we see eye to eye, unfortunately most women don't agree to this they want to be the shot callers Of the relationship
    • Thanks my friend, no one can make the word of truth fall...

  • lilaqua
    Yes. Let’s go back to the days in which marital rape and abuse were acceptable ways to treat your wife. I get that your going to go on your spiel about how “god loving men won’t beat their wives” or “women should choose a good man” but that just isn’t the reality. Men are mere mortals, power corrupts people. When given power over someone abuse is much more likely. The women who lived through these times and survived were smart, like my grandmother. Financially independent and we’re equal contributors to household and family decisions.
    • Thanks for sharing but that's your own reality while the facts aren't like this... also i'll never marry a girl who wants to work after marriage and not matter what you do, you ain't going to find happiness with someone since you consider yourself as a girl to be like a man.

      A man can abuse you anytime he wants or even rape you, he might go to jail in some countries and when he's out your dead... if you wanna play it like this.

      It's just how a person is raised, if there was no laws and i can rape any woman that i want, i'll never do it becauae i believe that i should marry the girl that i love so i have sex with her cause she will become my family and hurting is far likely to happen since after marriage we become one, if she's hurt i'm hurt... ans vice versa... that's how marriage works, which is not a competition for a feminazi to show off!

      Sad. So you clearly don’t want a woman to actually further herself but be your assistant. Poor woman

    • What is a housewife? She's a main assistant and the base of the house, it's true without me she csn't live but also without her i won't be able to do all these things.
      She have her role and i have mine, in the end a happy wife means a happy house and that's where i want to be most of the time, in her arms at home kisses her and feeling the warmth in my little world.

    Just seems that a successful marriage according to this means the women have to make most of the sacrifices.
    I'd also rather be alone that submit to anyone. I dont want to be a "helper" or have to prioritize his sexual needs over anything else in life.

    That just doesn't work out. Not many women would be happy in that role. Just because a marriage doesn't break up does not mean it hasn't taken a toll on those involved.

    Obviously everyone involved needs to be patient and able to compromise. But, that should go both ways. Both people should have equal attention to their needs, equal sacrifice.
    Plus waaaaay way too many men take this literally and use this as the " bible says I'm in charge" type of deal. Yuck.
    • That's your own opinion and tnx for sharing...
