This Is How To Be A Good Husband


You will agree with me that no one ever went to a school where you learnt how to be a good husband.

We learn how to become a doctor, an engineer, lawyer but not how to be a good husband.

Sometimes life could be unfair. Majoring on the minor.

So what we want to do is very simple. I won’t be assuming that you know, I will make it very simple and very straight to the point.

Here are a few tips to becoming a good husband, not minding your temperament, your background, what you have learnt be observation etc.

1. Be a good listener

You don’t want to be a boss in your marriage, so listen well to what your wife is saying.

She is not just your wife, shes your help meet.She may not be as educated as you, but she has a lot of intuition.

God gave her that gift to help you.
If you make her unsure of herself, she will not be saying anything, and it is to your detriment.

2. Be A Friend

Let your wife have access to you.You can either be the lion of the tribe of your family or be the people’s man.

Make yourself vulnerable to her.

Let down your guards and “armour”

Don’t be afraid of being disrespected, because in actual fact she will respect you more

3. Be strong

To be a good husband you have to be strong emotionally, spiritually, psychologically, mentally etc

Your wife’s emotion can be fickle, you should be able to give her the stability she requires without crushing her esteem.

4. Be a love being


You have to understand what love is spelt like.

The best record of what real love is, is inn 1 Cor 13:4 MSG

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (KJV)  
Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,  [5]  Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;  [6]  Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;  [7]  Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.  [8]  Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

5. Be a great forgiver

If you want to be a good husband, you have to learn to be quick to forgive.
You have to teach her to forgive by being a great forgiver yourself.

Be quick to forgive. Don’t just forgive, show her what she needs to learn .
