Two of the Best Questions You Can Ask Your Husband to Strengthen Your Marriage
I was newly engaged to Eric when he first asked me these questions, and quite frankly, I was dumbfounded. Really, I had never heard such questions asked of me before and I didn’t know how to respond to him.
Apparently my man had done something that offended me and that’s why he asked me,
“On a scale of 1-10 how would you rate our relationship?”
I immediately felt awkward when he asked me this. I couldn’t exactly hide me feelings on this one, which was a good thing, but I felt uncomfortable that I had to bare my soul. In fact, I tried not to answer him because I didn’t want to express my feelings and show my vulnerability. At that time in my life, to me, vulnerability equalled weakness. (Oh, how wrong I was to think that.)
Follow me over to my new marriage site, Christian Wife University, where I’m sharing the rest of this post!
Oh, and one last thing, if you’re looking to better your marriage, your mothering, or managing your home, I’ve got a surprise that I can’t wait to share with you in the coming days! Stay tuned. 🙂
Live a poured out life for Christ,
One of the scriptures that makes me pause and think is “Unless you repent of the sins of your fathers you too shall like wise perish”.
I am getting ready to start my third marriage. The first one ended in a divorce and before I started my second there was a lot of soul searching on why it failed.
The second marriage I made clear that either we could agree that God was in charge or we had no common ground to build on. It was successful. Susan passed away four years ago from cancer.
For the past few years I have been examining that marriage to identify what was great about it and what I could do better!
All of this searching and evaluating has led me to the conclusion that a lot of Christian families are not what they should be!
“Husbands love your wives like Christ loves the church ….” is applied this way in my life to make it personal- “Bruce, love your wife like Christ loves you”.
As a person attempting to be as Christ like as I can- I want to thank you as a man for encouraging me to let go of the model for a marriage that I saw in my parents life. To ignore those who teach that the man is the lord and master of the house. For encouraging me to see marriage as a peer relationship as God intended!
