As a wife, it’s important not to disregard or dishonour the place of your husband; that is unwise. When you decided to marry him, you acknowledged his role in the marriage so don’t try to contest his rightful position now. It’s true that some husbands may abuse that role because they lack understanding or because of pride, etc and that is not right in any way, but if you don’t want matters to get worse, be mindful concerning how your respond if you want the marriage to still stand.
Go to God in prayer to turn his heart and give him an understanding heart. If you need to, speak to someone who can give you wisdom filled answers on what to do to provoke the change you want to see. Remember 1 Peter 3:1! Speak to your husband about your feelings but don’t let the conversation escalate, be wise with your words and actions.
On the other hand, some husbands are genuinely trying their best, yet their wives take them for granted. Don’t be one of such wives for any reason! Don’t be troublesome! He is not perfect and he will make mistakes but that’s no excuse. If you’re waiting for him to be perfect first, you’d be miserable because that day won’t come. Examine yourself; is your husband actually really doing his best? Then, change your attitude.
Your husband may not tell you, but he wants to be celebrated by you the most. He wants to be regarded by you the most. If you don’t give him due honour, it’s only a matter of time; some other lady will be ready to do so any day, any time. So protect what is yours! As a single lady, if you know you just cannot reverence him and allow him to take the lead, loose him and let him go. Don’t go into marriage and become a headache in his life. People may cheer you on now for misbehaving but the consequences of your actions are destructive.
Any wife who wants to have a successful home has to develop and maintain deep reverence for her husband. Of course marriage is not a one way street; husbands also have a critical part to play but today’s charge is specifically for us as women. You may not like it, you may not agree with it; but it won’t change God’s principles of marriage.
