Happily married? Your marriage may be the greatest joy of your life or, maybe, you’ve just experienced the first real threat to a “happy marriage.” Or perhaps, the dream of being happily married may be a distant memory for you.
Wives smother to control—to stop something from happening or to ensure that something will happen. After all, if you don’t control this situation, what will happen?
The Bible gives commands for the kind of people we all need to be. Applying those principles (with some poetic license) to our marriages keeps us on track or fills in the missing pieces in a less-than-happy marriage. Stated succinctly, our marriages would be a lot better off if we extended basic human decency to our spouses.
As a Christian desiring the best marriage and a close walk with God, you may wonder why you and your spouse don’t have a deeply-connected prayer life together. You say a blessing over the food, and you pray for the missionaries; but you seldom if ever pour out your hearts before God together.
Wives want quality time, help around the house, leadership, and affection. That’s what the article I read listed. Fairly simple and straightforward. Life tells a very different story. What do women really want from their husbands?
Let me ask you a question about your marriage, and try to answer it as honestly as you can. Are you silently “keeping score?” In other words, do you tally your spouse’s faults and weaknesses while only taking note of your own good deeds?

When my husband and I drove through Europe, we frequently found ourselves caught up on rotary traffic circles in the cities (some call them “roundabouts”). Looping about a city landmark on the inner part of a multi-lane traffic circle, we would struggle in vain to get into the outer lane in time to turn onto the intersecting street that would continue us on our way.
Every day our organization works with people whose marriages are in crisis. We hear the stories – infidelity, control, selfishness, and much more. So how do we answer the question, “Should I stay married for my children?”
Having a baby turns your marriage upside-down. There’s no denying it. You take on these new roles of “Mommy” and “Daddy” and within that, it can be hard to relate to each other. You can feel more like colleagues working together on an important project than lovers. But it’s important to remember your real relationship. So how do you do that?
During the 1970’s my grandmother clipped “Love is” cartoons from the daily newspaper. Just in case you don’t remember (or if you are too young to know what I am talking about) it was a cartoon created by Kim Casali. The cartoons originated from a series of love notes that Grove drew for her future husband, Roberto Casali.
