I know it can seem like husbands are big babies/kids sometimes and they should be more understanding that you are being pulled in so many directions, but how understanding should he really be? In a godly marriage he should come first. Your children are a priority yes…OH YES, but not at the expense of your husbands neglect. Each husband is different and requires/needs different things at different times. It is your business as a wife to know him and meet those needs as best as you can…that is your most important roll and sometimes I know it gets lost. Sometimes husband suffer silently as if you could read his mind. That can be irritating because all could be well if he would just speak up, but I’m going to suggest even in this case (of non-verbal communication) to use wisdom, discernment, and your intuition to see whats going on in his heart. Maybe you have a SUPER NEEDY husband that needs to chill and get his issues and insecurities together; you should still show him grace (it’s not like you didn’t see he was needy before you married him right?) Maybe you have a loner husband that won’t say one word and dives into his work; I’m suggesting you bring it up from time to time and just check in with him to see if he is good.
Know your man, do what’s best for you and yours, but don’t ever leave room for anyone to fill your shoes.
How do you respond in your heart when your husband has request of you and your spent?
