Treating Your Husband

Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even 
so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. (Matthew 7:12)

How is it that the people who see us at our worst also love us the most? 

I'm talking about family. Specifically, our husbands. They look past our bed hair, morning breath, grouchiness, and still love us at the end of our really bad days. In return, we say we love them more than anyone else on the planet, but sometimes treat them worse than a stranger in passing.

Did you know that the rule "treat others how you would like to be treated" also includes your husband? It doesn't matter if he is doing "his share" or not. If you want your husband to treat you like a queen, treat him like a king. 

  • If you want your husband to surprise you more with flowers, a card, or love letter, surprise him with something first. 
  • Does your husband have a really bad habit that annoys you? Well, guess what have several bad habits of your own! Try to work on these areas and maybe he will do that in return.
  • Your friends husband always raves about what a wonderful wife he has, but your husband only manages to tell others about your latest and greatest disaster. Praise your husband in front of others every chance you get. On social networking, to friends and family, and the cashier. He might do it back, but, even if he doesn't, it never hurts to build your husband up!
  • Forgive and forget. Forgive even if he doesn't ask for it. You don't want to be reminded of your mistakes and wrongdoings, and neither does he.

We should treat everyone how they want to be treated, but especially our husbands. There is no one else, besides God, who loves us more or deserves our best actions and attitude.
