I am reading the book "For Women Only" by Shaunti Feldhahn it's about
the great mystery called marriage. I thought I'd share what I've learned
74 % of men would rather feel alone and unloved than feel inadequate and disrespected. In fact
many men had a hard time seeing the difference because if a man feels
disrespected he is going to feel unloved!
"If you want to love your man in the way he needs to be loved, then you
need to ensure that he feels your respect most of all."
How do you know when you've disrespected your husband? If he is angry at something you've said or done the chances are
he is feeling disrespected.
“In a relationship conflict crying is often a woman's response to feeling
unloved, and anger is often a mans response to feeling disrespected." In
an argument 81% of men were more likely to feel "my wife does not
respect me" than only 19% of men who feel "unloved".
We’ve become such a “love culture” thinking that love should be unconditional where respect should be earned. But
men NEED unconditional respect and marriage is about putting the other
persons needs above your own. It does wonderful things for your husband
to know you are choosing to trust and honor him.
"Respect is a choice we can and and should choose to demonstrate respect!"
Conclusion: Respect = Love to your man!
