Jesus gave us very strict moral standards. Don’t even think about having an affair.
“You have heard that it was said, ‘Do not commit adultery.’ But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” (Mathew 5:27, 28)
As husband and wife are one flesh, so their relationship should be very transparent, in order to be strong. A husband should be truthful to his wife. Don’t even hide the smallest detail from your wife, because it can cause a crack in your marriage later.
Remember, your wife will not trust you, but you have to earn it. Your one lie can make you lose your trust forever.
“Seek the truth and truth shall free you”
3. Love & care
A good husband loves and he cares for his wife feelings. He treats his wife with respect. He is polite and does not use harsh words.
“Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, So that nothing will hinder your prayers.” 1 peter 3:7
“Husbands, love your wives. Just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her in the same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.”
Ephesians 5:25, 28
4. Strong leader
Marriage is successful when husband is in lead. To be the leader of the family doesn’t mean to be the dictator. It is to listen to your partner, your helper (wife) and to put your family on the right path.
Leadership is not being rude, disrespectful, or do whatever you want to do and hurting your partner’s feelings ,especially in front of others.
“For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church.”
God has made man to protect his family. He is a strong shield for his family and he is able to take stand for his wife and children.
A good husband is a hard worker. He is able to provide for his family.
“Diligent hands will rule, but laziness ends in slave labor.”
7. First preference
A Godly husband’s priority is not his relatives or his friends. His wife means everything to him.
“The man said, this is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman, for she is taken out of man. For this reason a man will leave his father and his mother and be united to his wife, and they will be one flesh.”
A wife always tries to make her husband happy, whether It is by looking nice, by cooking good food or by doing little things for him.
Have husband ever thought about what a wife wants?
She wants her husband to listens to express her feelings and share her thoughts.
9. Looks nice for his wife.
Try to be presentable for your wife. If you want your wife to look nice and appealing to you then your wife also wants you to look nice too.
Little appreciation and little things like saying thank you can make a big difference. Always appreciate what she does for you and never forget to say thank you.
11. Do not expect her to be perfect.
A wife is a human being. Forgive her mistakes and help her instead by encouraging and uplifting words.
Husband and wife are two partners and helpers for each other. In today’s era a woman works not only in the house but also outside the house. Thus she is working double than man. If you will help her in the house, she can have more time for you.
