if you are a married man and you are guilty of any of these then you really deserve a hot slap plus a complete change of heart because you are definitely making a mistake.
1.As the spiritual head of the home, when was the last time you
led your family (wife and children) in prayers? Yes, your wife also
can lead prayers also but are you doing enough spiritually for
your marriage and family?
2.Comparing your wife with your ex, especially for those that did
many ‘permutation’ and ‘combination’ with many ladies whilst
single is a sign that you have not left your past.
3.Condemning your wife’s meal, soup, stew as you compare it to
that of your ex-gilrfriend, ex-wife or your mother.
4.The private things that happen in your marriage that you tell
your family members will ultimately create a negative impression
and perception of her. Ultimately, you will also reap what you sow
as her husband.
5.Not acknowledging or paying for your wife’s hair and personal
make up and appearance. You don’t like her appearance yet you
are not paying for her to look good.
6.Mr Husband, your mouth odour, your body odour, your dirty
boxers and socks are serious put-off to your spouse. Take a little
time to wash, to tidy up yourself. She probably may have even
told you but you get offended. Mr, there are truth nobody will tell
you except your wife!
7.Husband, your 2 minute expulsion is serious punishment for
your wife. If she has told you, please change. If she has not
complained, she is merely enduring. A sexually and emotionally
dissatisfied wife is an unhappy wife!
8.Sex in marriage ought not to be boring. But yours is boring
because you want it only at your own time and not at a more
conducive time to both parties.
9.Your wife is not a slave. You need to assist with house chores.
And if you think you are too big for the chores get technological
tools that can help and a house-help to support. A distressed
wife is a stressed wife!
10.It is selfishness to keep your educated and skilled wife idle at
home. It does not matter how much you earn, how much you pay
or give her, she also has a dream to fulfil in life. There is greater
joy in marriage when both husband and wife are fulfilled! Support
11.Getting intimidated by your wife’s achievement, career and
business successes is a reflection of your insecurity and low self-
esteem. Your wife’s achievement should be a thing of pride to
you also and not of intimidation!
12.It just does no make sense to be suspecting your wife. How
can you become a detective in your home and expect to have joy
13.Yes, the Bible instruct that wives should submit to their
husbands but you have turned submission to subjugation. You
have become a terror to your wife!
14.Beating up your wife no matter what she did wrong is not a
prove of your seniority, masculinity, or manhood, instead it is a
show of your immaturity and irresponsibility.
15.There is no time that you are ever home with your wife and
children even on public holidays. When your business or job
ends, will you still have a wife and children to be proud of. Your
wife and children need you more than money and toys that you
buy for them!
16.Engaging in extra-marital affair that can never ever give you
joy and fulfilment. Extra-marital affair is an unprofitable venture.
You loose spiritually, you loose physically, you loose financially.
By the time you loose your wife and children, you are the biggest
looser of all!
17.How can you be attracted to your wife’s maid, sisters or her
friends? What is attracting you in them that your wife don’t
have? Have you discussed those things with your wife in a loving
18.Irrespective of your religion, polygamy is not the solution to
your insatiable sexual appetite. It will ultimately cost you more
for less satisfaction and joy
19.How have you secured your wife and children against the
predators of your properties, assets and estates? Do you have a
20.Taking your wife through the pain and rigour of divorce
because you have found a ‘sweet sixteen’ is not the way to go.
Most men who change women like diapers end up miserable also
as they become serial divorcees.
Friends, it is high time we tell ourselves the Unclad truth. If you
want to enjoy being married, be responsible. There is alot of
responsibility that God placed on men. Let us see what God
expect of husbands in the Bible;
“…..Love your wife, just as Christ loved the church and gave
Himself forit’’ Ephesians 5 Vs 25
If you appreciate how much Christ loved the church and gave
Himself for it, you will know the magnitude of responsibility on
you as a husband and father. An irresponsible husband is likely
to be an irresponsible father and you know Christ is not like you!
“…..love your wife as your own body. He who loves his wife loves
himself”Ephesians 5 Vs 28
It is in your own interest to love your wife. If you love her you
‘’…….dwell with them with understanding, giving honour to the
wife as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the
grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered”1 Peter 3 Vs
Simply put, you hinder yourself by the way you treat your wife!
If it is true that man was created in the image and likeness of
God, guys, it is time we wake up to the expectation of our maker.
I doff my cap to husbands who are responsible and doing quite
alot to make their marriages work. God will bless you the more
and encourage you. Your labour will not be invain. Amen!
