An Oldie but Goodie Post. People reacted to the idea of the responsibilities of a wife. What about you, do you agree with the responsibilities I listed or do you think there are different ones that are more important? Read on for more information.
When I first became a wife the responsibilities of the job didn’t enter my mind. I was young, in love and all I wanted was to be with my hubby. Those thoughts stayed with me for the next 24 hours until reality hit my new little world. There was no money, no time and no honeymoon since my new husband started a new job a month before the wedding and paid vacation wouldn’t be coming for another year. So on Monday morning we got up, readied ourselves and left for our jobs. Real life had just began and I was about to get a crash course on the responsibilities of being a wife.
As the months passed and my hubby would come home from work tired, sore, and frustrated I learned that he was not looking for my opinion of how I would handle the situation he encountered during the day. What he really wanted was a hug, kiss and dinner. I was soon to learn that one of the responsibilities of a wife was the support I could give to my husband. He could get career advice from his parents and buddies but a loving safe place where he was always the hero and I would be by his side is what he needed from me.
We were on a bowling league when we were first married. The guys from his shop had formed a league and it was a fun date night for us. Mostly, us girls just sat and talked with each other. We complained about our jobs, our new perms and our husbands. Soon it seemed like my new husband could do no right and our fighting increased. Not sure what to do, I talked to a friend from church about it. She gave me a piece of advice that I’m sure saved my marriage and I believe it’s one of the best laws of marriage. Show respect for your husband. Do not talk badly about your husband with your friends, family and never in front of your children.
A wife’s responsibilities might include the keeping and cleaning of the house and children. But the top responsibility of any wife should be her husband, loving and cherishing him. The hardest part of understanding the responsibilities of being a wife is finding the balance of time and responsibilities of being an employee, a mother and a wife. All your husband wants is to feel that he is important in your life, that you love him. One of the ways to do that is to cherish him by giving him the support he needs from his wife. Show and give respect for him at all times. Love your husband and let him will return the favor to you over and over again.
