1) Love Your Wife
The first requirement of the Bible is that you have to love your wife. And how do you imitate God in love? This might not come as a surprise to you.
2) Be Faithful to Your Wife
Being unfaithful to your wife is not only against God’s will, it is also one of the most guaranteed ways to break up your marriage.
3) Submit To Your Wife
“Wow, that is a new idea,” you say. No, not really. It is found in Ephesians 5: 21, “Submit yourselves to one another out of reverence for Christ. “The key thing here is to know what the will of God is, and submit to your wife if she shows you that you have strayed from the path that is God’s will.
4) Be The Head Of Your Wife
You should never do anything, or expect your wife to do anything, that falls outside the will of God! That is the meaning of being the head of the household.
5) Respect Your Wife
You also have to respect her opinions and ideas, as well as her ambitions, dreams and wishes. Never think that yours are the only important dreams or ambitions, but realize that your wife has just as much right to having her own ambitions and dreams because she is also a child of God, just like you. When you make love to your wife you also have to respect her sexual preferences. Never force her to do anything that makes her uncomfortable.
6) Give Her Security
And real security is to provide for her and the family financially. You have to provide your wife with security because that is what God expects you to do. But you also have to provide her with security because a lack of security is a big part of why women would eventually cheat on their husbands – to try and find someone who will give her security.
