This is to be expected, but this should be the exception rather than the rule. Make special time just for him — get your needed rest so you can enjoy each other. My husband and I do not have lots of money for date time so we look for creative ways to enjoy time together. I remember one time when I planned a beach picnic for supper — in the dead of winter up north! I put on some Beach Boys music in the bedroom, laid beach towels on the bed and made a picnic meal.
I put on my swimsuit and tied my hair in a ponytail.
This was a cost free date and we made a great memory too! Feel free to use this idea for your own special time. Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth. Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love. Proverbs It is so easy to get caught up in gossip when we are with our girlfriends.
I am sometimes just astounded at what some women will say about their husbands. Our husband should be the most important relationship we have — next to our relationship with God. We must be careful what we say about him. Our conversation including our body language should be always kind and tenderhearted.
We must remember that we are walking, talking examples of someone who is indwelled with the Holy Spirit. We should display only the fruit that is produced of the Holy Spirit, therefore the conversation we have about our husband should resemble the following scripture:.
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Galatians Ladies, how much do you love your husband? Truly the Bible tells us that a husband should love his wife enough that he is willing to die for her Ephesians ; but what about the wife? The original design for us is to live for our husband because he is our earthly representative of Christ Ephesians We were created for him and from him. We were created to bare his children. We were made to have desire for him only. This means that his needs must come before our own. Remember, I am talking to the ladies here and know that your love for your husband is independent of his love for you.
What I mean to say is, you cannot control how he is toward you, but you can make a daily choice to love him in spite of how he loves you. As Christian wives, when we get back to the fundamentals we can be the best wife that God has made us to be.
God knows best and when we agree with Him our marriages will be blessed. Here are some more articles that might interest you:. Bible verses about marriage. Christian advice before marriage. How to respect your husband. Tagged as: husband , Marriage , role of wife in Christian marriage , wife.

Hello Lorraine, I recommend that you continue in prayer that his heart will be softened. It sounds like he is not aware of his husbandly role. Is he a believer? Would he consider joining you for some Biblical counseling to talk about roles? Although we are not certified NANC counselors, this is the model that we use on our ministry at we are located in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We must always be carefull about the times chapters of the Bible were written.
Men in these times were single providers and women cared for the children and their homes. To my opinion, women should provide too if it is necessary to keep the basic standards in their families, not for luxuries sake. Providing both for the family is an act of love. Our countries are in an economical crisis, and some firms especially one man firms do have difficult times.
If helping out by paying a few bills, would really help your husband from drowning, I do not see any difficulties. You have become one, and must share. BUT having said that, it would only be normal for man and woman to sit at the table and both take a look at the financial part of this shop. Taking responsability in closing the shop, or to find an second investor, who will work with him. I can understand as much your husband, who wants to keep his lifetime work, as much as I can understand Lorraine to be concerned about the family.
As you are one, you need to sit down as one, to find a way out, and you need your husband to provide, by taking responsibility about what to do with the shop. Having paid a few bills in this case, is an act of love and not about I have done this, and you have done that. Remember that money is not our own, it belongs to the face printed on any bill, but when it comes down to the love, it is the image of Christ which is printed in our hearts. That is what I think, always asking what would Jesus do? Faith changed my life as well and has made me a better but no perfect wife. The New Testament is the new covenant which has been made for all people.
The Old Testament has its value as the lawgiver. Still Jesus gave us the new covenant to follow and in fact this is what our role as Christian women should be based upon. If Jesus says follow this covenant, for noone puts an old piece of cloth within a new one, it means that the values have not changed, but our angle towards this values have totally changed by his offer. Our role is that one of a deep understanding, a deep way of forgiving, and not being annoyed by the things we were always annoyed by as non-believers.
The times of laws belonged to the Old Testament, the times of the broader approach towards this laws is the time after He had risen, which is now, today.

So you are right as far as the times before Christ came, but these times have passed. Annick Vanblaere. Hello Annick Vanblaere, Thank you for your comment. The law-giving. We are no longer bonded by laws. It was clear from the Old Testament, no one obeyed the by God given laws, not even today, no one ever will. People even added laws, which had nothing to do with the 10 commandments, or deviated from what it actually meant.
These times have passed. All we need to do is accept Jesus Christ and in doing so the Holy Ghost takes over. If we truly accept Jesus, automatically we will try do continue our lives in a loving, forgiving and righteous way. We are now given the opportunity to receive salvation as a free gift Ephesians Through the life-giving Holy Spirit who lives in all believers Romans , we can now share in the inheritance of Christ and enjoy a permanent, unbroken relationship with God. Follow His example. It is by all means beautiful if you follow in your life what the Holy Ghost set out for you to do in His service, but what we are to do will be different, from christian to christian, no matter his or her gender, status or origin.
But what each and everyone is instructed to do, do not let your left hand know, what your right hand has done for the Lord, for as we enter heaven, He will declare: I never knew you, depart from me. You are a beautiful person in His Name. Love you sis. And a husband must not divorce his wife. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy. The brother or the sister is not bound in such circumstances; God has called us to live in peace. Or, how do you know, husband, whether you will save your wife? This is the rule I lay down in all the churches.
He should not become uncircumcised. Was a man uncircumcised when he was called? He should not be circumcised. Do not seek to be released. Are you free from such a commitment? Do not look for a wife. But those who marry will face many troubles in this life, and I want to spare you this.
