How the husbands in strong married couples show love to their wives


Really?
Marriages seem to be struggling today more than ever.  The divorce and separation rates are skyrocketing all over the world; and the cynic in me feels like it’s gotten to the point where a good marriage (like, married couples who stay longer than 10 years) is as rare as gold, and “suffering” and “game over” jokes have been connected to the married life.

Some of my friends don’t believe in marriage anymore, but I think that’s wrong thinking.  Just because you’ve experienced a bad haircut doesn’t mean you no longer believe in haircuts.  Instead, you look for a good barber.

Since my blog is directed more towards the men (I hope the majority of the my readership is composed of fathers and husbands like me), allow me to show you how the husbands in strong married couples show love to their wives by showing below yet another Focus on the Family broadcast.  It’s called Practical Ideas for Loving Your Wife, enjoy.



Indeed we can be huge knuckleheads sometimes and be so consumed with work deadlines, sports, hobbies, even ministry to the point that our marriage and family lives slip under the radar.  So not cool.


My loving wife recently had to remind me (quite strongly, I might at) that I’ve started to slip in this area.  Uh oh…

If you want more help in enhancing your married life, feel free to check out the Recommended Reading list below.  Married couples would also do well to attend couples retreats, and I’ll let you know when we’ll have our next ones.  Oh, you can also check out more of my marriage articles.

God bless you all...and if you're a husband reading this, get off the computer and show your wife some lovin'!

  4. they should love their wife like they love their own body. Respect and love is a must in a relationship. :) and of course commending each other brings marriage into success as well. Just like that Dr. Phil said, first thing in the morning you have to think on how to make your partner happy instead of thinking for your own happiness.

  5. this is very interesting topic to discuss because i agree a lot of marriages these days had been fall out of order because of lacking consideration and affection. i think men should have to think outside their thinking box (brain)! that's what i always want to show to my husband! be sensitive!!!! even just for once! lol

  6. Marriages takes two to tango...as for me, small help will makes a difference like asking your wife if she needs help with the dishes, cooking or with kids. I always tell my husband to set the table when I am cooking. It is not a lot but it does help.

  7. it's because men and women who went of their way to understand how this institution work.. finally realized how this system tie them till the end, hence the increasing statistics of separation ... however, if one really finds this institution relevant then in one way or the other should exert effort to keep it from falling apart .. that is when this video becomes relevant :)

  8. It takes two to tango after all. If a relationship is centered with Love, Loyalty, Trust and above all Faith in God, I think it will work all through the end. It is sad to see married couples on the rocks especially when kids are involved. Ego and Pride are the factors of spitting.

  9. Submit to one another the bible said. I hope husbands will not only make the "Wives submit to your husbands" verse a favorite. Husbands plays a very important role in making a marriage work as God designed him to be the leader of the family. Wife is there to help. Without his strong and Godly leadership, chances are he will produce a chaotic and dysfunctional family. It's sad that married couple nowadays finds it so easy to decide to let go of their spouse's hands and call it quits.

    Putting God in the center of the marriage, setting aside PRIDE will definitely settle the differences. I hope every husband will take their leadership by heart..like seriously!

  10. This is a best tip for husbands, but sometimes there are husbands get too busy that even the tips are in front of them already they choose to ignore it.

  11. I am soon to take the plunge but I am sure, i'm not one of the many who may want to quit after taking solemn vow. With God in our lives, no husband and wife is easy to break apart. I am no expert on these things but I can only cling on to God's precepts.

    Thanks for sharing these. These are very helpful not only for married couples but to someone like me who will soon take the sacred vow.
