There are a thousand and one articles on what to do in marriage, and sometimes we are running to keep up.
At times, our roles as husband and wives are so complicated and sometimes we get confused and mix things up. We minor in the major and major on the minor.
I was also running this race to meet up and catch up with what I should be doing as a wife early in our marriage.
I discovered that every one of those articles had a core message. We could have 100 topics on marriage but the core message they are passing across is the same.
For example, we have articles that talk about dressing well for your husbands, how to cook, communicating well in such a way that shows true friendship, husbands treating your wife well, taking her out, remembering her birthday and buying her gifts, understanding each other’s temperament, and many more.
The Bible remains our marriage manual. Each of us should take his/her portion and run with it. We should pursue our role, not minding whether the other person takes up the challenge of his/her responsibility.
I believe if husbands and wives can be committed to this, we will have fewer problems in our marriage.
Our manual as couples is in Eph 5:22- 26. Emphasis on verses 22 &23 for wives and for husbands verses 24-26
For wives, this means being supportive to your husbands like you are tenderly devoted to our Lord, for the husband provides leadership for the wife, just as Christ provides leadership for his church, as the Savior and Reviver of the body. In the same way the church is devoted to Christ, let the wives be devoted to their husbands in everything. And to the husbands, you are to demonstrate love for your wives with the same tender devotion that Christ demonstrated to us, his bride. For he died for us, sacrificing himself to make us holy and pure, cleansing us through the showering of the pure water of the Word of God. – Ephesians 5:22-26
In summary, wives should be supportive to their husbands and husbands are to demonstrate love to their wives with the same tender devotion that Christ demonstrated to us.
Now, every couple is to take this and fit it into their own marriage. Find creative ways you can show your support to your husbands as wives. Husbands, love your wives tenderly.
Meditate on these verses and begin to function in your roles.
God bless your marriage.
