Marriage is not an institution to enter into lightly. When we dedicate ourselves to another human being, we agree to a list of lifelong promises — for better or for worse.
Many times wives wake up and realize they married a no good, very bad husband. Sometimes they never saw it coming. Warm and fuzzy emotions, fun experiences and even the new adventure of true love covered the prospective spouses’ faults and shortcomings.
However, for some crazy reason, we wives (including myself) fail see our pretty messy faults.
We see their lack of tidiness, but ignore our lack of kindness.
We see their selfish decisions, but turn a deaf ear to our constant demands.
We see their unfaithful eyes, but ignore our unfaithful hearts.
And so our marriage begins to unwind, unravel and completely fall apart.
Maybe we even make the decision to leave. If you’re in that area of your life right now I beg you to stop reading this post and read this article titled Dear Wife Who Wants to Leave. Please do that now.
And truthfully, some wives are married to monsters. I will never recommend a wife stay in a situation in which her or her children’s lives are in danger. If that’s you,seek help today. I’m not telling you to walk away from your marriage completely, just find safety for you and your children.
But the honest truth is most women are not married to monsters.
Most women remarried to men with imperfections.
Most women are married men who do not know God on personal level (but could one day!)
And some women have no idea that they could have a huge, positive and eternal impact on the heart and life of their husband.
Do you know the power of a praying wife? You can read all about it here in this book I’m reading right now. Do you know the power of a loving, respectful wife? Do you know the power of an affectionate, passionate wife?
You, dear wife, have the power to possibly turn your no good, very bad husband around — without one negative word.
Nagging doesn’t work, does it?
Belittling doesn’t work, does it?
But love and respect? Those two things are dynamite!
And that’s exactly why I wrote How to Love Your No Good, Very Bad Husband.
It’s a book (which also includes some professionally designed and inspiring printables) that helps wives see the power they have in cultivating an exciting marriage! Your husband can become your best friend again. You and your husband can enjoy the sparks of love, compassion and intimacy that you once shared. And your husband may even come to know the God you love and trust through your dedication to create a happier, loving marriage.
