I’ve got something to say. I don’t know how this is going to come out or who it may be for, but I hope someone can receive it. I’m not trying to argue with anyone, this was just a quick thought that came to mind that I want to share with you.
Men – Although I know this may not apply to every husband, I’m trying to be inclusive by just saying men. Those who are married or considering marriage. I’m the first to say that I haven’t gotten this right all the time, but be smart enough to recognize who you are and who you’re suppose to be.
Before you get upset with your wife for something, stop and think about what you’re about to say and how beneficial that really is to the profit of your family, marriage and your relationship with her. Now you get mad at me all you want for saying this if you like, but I’m telling you the truth. The most valuable asset you have in your family is not your money or possessions, but your wife. Consider who is there working with you.
Accept the responsibility for being a husband in more than just title only. That begins with being accountable to your wife and children if you have them. If you’re going to be as one, then be of the same opinion, not just yours.
Women – Don’t get all happy because I got something for you as well. Those who are married or working towards marriage this is for you. Don’t be so impatient or wrapped up in yourself that you become unhelpful to your husband
Just like you say that “you can do this all by myself”, a good husband can say that too. Stop working against him or being so involved with what you’ve got going on long enough to see what he has going on for you and the family. Then you may realize something that you almost lost.
A good husband considers his wife and children first before others or himself. But when the wife is too busy doing her thing, the children looking at both of you wondering what you’re doing, no direction, no objections to anything going on in your house, you’re going to find yourself eventually missing out on what could be the best times of your life.
Pay attention to what you’re doing and who you’re doing it with. Marriage can be fun if you would just slow down long enough to enjoy the journey. Stop running after money, time, things and people and start working together so you both or all can reach that destination in life.
I will end here by leaving this final thought with you.
Men, listen to your wife. Take her opinion into account. Counsel her before making a decision that may affect you both.
Women, listen to your husband. Be quiet long enough to consider what he’s saying. Don’t undermind him by an unwillingness to listen, consider and support. It’s hard enough just being married today, I just want to help stop the enemy from within that works to destroys it.
