Sometimes us husbands spend so much time making sure everyone else is taken care of, that we forget to love and nurture our wives.
She's your closest neighbor. She's Yahweh's gift to you. Don't expect her to blossom and grow without water and sunshine.
I've told a lot of men over the years that their job is to love their wife as Christ loved the Church. After almost 21 years, I'm still working on obeying that commandment. I fail a lot, but I don't give up.
If you want to be treated like a King, treat your wife like a Queen. The husband is the head of the wife. That doesn't mean you start bucking up your chest. That means it begins with us husbands. It means it's up to us husbands. We cannot sit idle and just expect something good to happen. We must do our job first, in order for marriage and family to function properly.
