4. Every wife needs love and every husband needs respect.
BOTH men and women need love AND respect, but men tend to have a unique desire for respect and appreciation while women have a unique desire for love and adoration. One of the toughest parts of marriage is giving love when your spouse is acting unlovable or giving respect when they’re acting disrespectful, but it’s so important to do it. God gives us His best when we’re at our worst, and He calls us to do that for each other in marriage. People usually need love most when they “deserve” love least.
“So again I say, each man must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.” Ephesians 5:33
