Responsibilities at home and at work can get the best out of us and mar the priorities we have set. And so, we often end up neglecting our duty to be the best husbands to our wives. This duty is quite difficult. A lot of energy, patience and time must be spent in order for us to improve ourselves and become the kind of husbands our wives can depend on.
Mature and act like an adult – Your wife already has kids to raise and care for. She doesn’t need another kid in the person of you to make her parenting life more difficult. She needs a co-parent who can make disciplining and rearing children a lot easier. By being mature, you’re also setting a good example to your children specifically to your boys who are future husbands and fathers of their generation.
Love your wife unconditionally – Is your love for your wife dependent on the things she does for you? If yes, you don’t love her unconditionally. Love her for the woman she was, she is and she will be. Remind yourself of the decision you made some time ago to love her and to put her needs before your needs.
Protect your wife always – Apart from protecting your wife that can harm her physically, protect her from circumstances, people or words that can put them down emotionally and psychologically. Stand by her side all the time even it means defending her against your family members or friends who might hold something negative against her.
