Husbands…Know Your Wives 101.

I think marriage is the toughest job you’ll ever love. I speak as one who knows from experience. I have been married to the foolish galatian for 11 years now, and before marriage we were high-school sweethearts, so in total we’ve been together for 15 years. We have two children and 4 fur children (believe me dogs are no different than children they just have fur!) It’s so easy to loose each other somewhere between the children, and the finances, and the jobs that daily communication becomes no more than discussions about the finances, kids, cars and work. This post is for the fellas! A WOMAN WANTS TO BE TREASURED! We woman love the little things. The love letter on the pillow, the little gifts for no reason. If you have little ones and are unable to get out of the house the way you used to, buy a bag of tea lights from target and while she’s putting the little ones to sleep set them up all over a quiet room in the house and rent or buy a movie that you both loved and watched together while you were dating, lay out blankets and pillows, light the tea lights and have her come into the room. Tell her how beautiful she is and how wonderful she is as a wife, tell her how you appreciate her as a companion and friend. For the cost of $4.00 for a bag of tea lights and the rental or purchase of a movie you can create a Wow moment that she will brag to all her friends about and will keep her falling in love with you. Remember that there is more to the both of you then bills, work and children. Don’t bury the spark that united you under the mundane repetition of life. 100% of the fun of being married to one person for life is watching each other grow, staying connected and inventing new ways to keep your mate falling in love with you. Send your wife back on Dec 6th and I’ll have knowing your husband 101 for her! I pray that you and your wife stay connected and continue to be a blessing to the kingdom of God through your unity and by sharing with other Christian couples to help navigate the sometimes choppy waters of marriage. Keep Christ the center of your union and it will always be Blessed!

    Good post! I’ve written a similar one in the past (I think) from the husband’s perspective! Thanks for letting us thick guys know about what’s going on inside our wives heads!
