Hello, Foreverhoneymooners!

Ardy and I are re-posting this encouragement to wives from a post by my discipler and friend, Cindy Soriano. Be assured that when you dish out respect, you'll reap a reward of overflowing love, hugs, snuggles and sweet embraces from your hubby.

Hugs and snuggles are just two of the benefits of respecting your hubby

Here we go...


Wives, please sit tight! It seems husbands have a lot more to say, and we have more to learn.

Ephesians 5:33 However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.

Let me premise the list with these: When a husband feels disrespected, he feels you do not love him. Ephesians 5:22-23 Gives us a glimpse of God's design for all marriages. God’s highest purpose in marriage is to showcase the intimate relationship between Christ and His people.

So here are the top 29 answers of what several husbands contributed when we asked them "What Makes You Feel Disrespected by Your Wife?"

1.  Using that "tone" and giving him that "look"
2.  When his ideas are shot down before he has finished explaining them
3.  Speaking negatively of him in front of others or the kids
4.  Answering for him when he was asked a question by someone
5.  Interrupting him; correcting him when he tells stories
6.  Telling him what to do; demanding
7.  Bossing him around
8.  Criticizing or insulting him
9.  Withholding sex out of spite or manipulation
10. Scolding him, shouting at him
11. Asking "what or why did you do it that way?" with eyes rolling or with a demeaning facing expression
12. Not listening to him, not doing what he asks 
13. Ignoring him when he comes home; not kissing or hugging him
14. Not preparing his favorite meals
15. Giving him the silent treatment
16. Not giving him the appreciation he needs or deserves
17. Making fun of him in front of the children or others; making jokes about him
18. Undermining his authority as the father; telling the kids they dont need to do as he says
19. Calling him slow or stupid or useless; making him feel inferior
20. Flaunting the fact that you earn more than him
21. Making him feel you are spiritually and morally better than him
22. Treating him like a child
23. Nagging him
24. Greeting him with complaints and problems
26. Never showing him you are content with him as a provider
27. Comparing him with other husbands
28. Giving other men more attention, kinder words and even serving others in a respectful way, 
29. Bringing up his past offenses over and over again
( there are more but the post is too long)

Ladies – we have a great capacity to destroy our dear husbands! Every husband is different and your husband will have his own list.

It is important that you know how your own husband feels disrespected.

And so, as we read through the list, I suggest we first use it as our own spiritual heart check up.

I pray we all be truly convicted, that we make changes, that we might become loving and respectful to our husbands.

Dont just make it a list you read and forget.

Give respect to your husband and reap the reward of overflowing love
