Dear Colleagues,

“WHY CAN’T A WOMAN BE LIKE A MAN??!!” cried Rex Harrison in “My Fair Lady.”

Good Morning!

Men: Is it not true (if we are honest) that most guys sincerely believe they married a man in a woman’s bodyShe should think and  act like me! What is her problem, anyway?” 

For starters, she is a woman who was uniquely and beautifully created by God to compliment, rather than duplicate you.

I doubt that there is a greater test of true manliness and godliness than how we treat the woman whom God has placed in our life. Thoughtful application of the Ten Commandments of Marriage”+  may prove helpful in enhancing your relationship with your wife:

I  Treat Your Wife with Strength and Gentleness

II  Give Ample Praise and Reassurance

III  Define the Areas of Responsibility

IV  Avoid Criticism

V  Remember the Importance of “Little Things”

VI   Learn How to Listen to Her in Order to Understand Her

VII  Give Her a Sense of Security

VIII  Recognize the Validity of Her Moods

IX  Cooperate With Her in Every Effort to Improve Your Marriage

X  Discover Her Particular Individual Needs and Try to Meet Them

It has been my observation that most women will respond to a man who is reasonable and caring. If wives  do become angry and difficult, my guess is that in most cases we men have made them that way!

So guys, let’s do ourselves a favor by applying these “Ten Commandments of Marriage.” After all:

It is  “better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife…(who)  is like a constant dripping on a rainy day.”  (Prov. 25:24;27:15)


My prayer is that you are having a great week!
