Any woman desiring to have a successful and exciting marriage should, as a matter of fact, familiarize herself with what the book of proverbs said about the virtuous woman, as can be seen in Proverbs 31:10
Moreover, the book of Proverbs 14:1 equally made a silent but crucial point saying, “the wise woman builds her house, but the foolish pulls it down with her hands”. In other words, women have a definite and very important role to play in the success of every marriage.
To this end, I wish to state that as a woman, the success, or failure of your marriage is definitely in your hands as you are more or less the one that directs the shape of your marriage.
In this post, therefore, we shall be discussing some basic things that must necessarily be in place for women who desire to have successful and exciting marriages.
In other words, as a woman, if it is your desire to have a successful and exciting marriage, these basic things must be in place in your home and marriage.
Before I proceed, I still wish to emphasize that as a woman, you hold the master key to whether you enjoy a successful and exciting marriage or not.
That master key that every woman needs to have in her hands to unlock successful and exciting marriage is called Wisdom. According to Proverbs 14:1, it says, “The wise woman builds her house, but the foolish pulls it down with her hands”.
So as a married woman, you either build your home to enjoy a successful and exciting marriage or scatter it. And the tendency of scattering your marriage is if you are not a virtuous woman and if you lack wisdom
As part of building your home and marriage, the following basic things must necessarily be in place. I say these things are basic because it is what most women know, but maybe ignoring or neglecting them.
In the first instance, as a married woman, you must ensure that you are fulfilling the main purpose God created you as a woman. Remember what God told Adam that necessitated His creation of woman.
We can see that in Genesis 2:18 where God the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him.
In other words, as a married woman, you must ensure that you are a real help meet that your husband should feel incomplete without you. This is the most thing you should achieve towards your husband, ensuring that you fill that loneliness in him, showing that you are a real help meet for him.
Secondly, what proves that a woman is a real help meet to her husband is by her being submissive to her husband. Some women are not playing this basic role by not being submissive to their husbands.
In other words, as a woman, if you desire to enjoy a successful and exciting marriage as a married woman, then you must as a necessity and conviction accept and obey the Biblical instruction as can be seen in Ephesians 5:22.
Ephesians 5:22 clearly states that “Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord”. Also, Colombians 3:1 equally confirmed it, saying “Wives, submit to your own husbands, as is fitting in the Lord”.
Being submissive to your husband is the bedrock or starting point for women who wish or desire to succeed in their marriage. Women who fail or refuse to be submissive to their husbands can never enjoy a successful and exciting marriage.
I wish to point out that one of the major reasons, some women are not submissive to their husbands is because of what was said by Geneva Convention chatter, which talks about women’s equality with men.
Yes, women have equal rights and privileges with their husbands in their marriage, but God who instituted marriage has placed authority and leadership in any marriage on the man or husband.
It is an obvious fact; that man is the leader and has the final authority in marriage. In any marriage in which the woman begins to challenge or usurp the authority and leadership of her husband, such marriage is heading for a breakdown and failure. The obvious reason is that GOD has placed man as the head of the marriage.
A wise woman doesn’t challenge her husband over who is the head, rather, by being submissive, she becomes the neck. Practically, you will see that the neck is controlling the head, as it is what directs the head.
In addition, as a married woman, remember what God told Adam, saying that He will make a help meet for him. In other words, as a married woman, you should learn to compliment her husband rather than compete with him:
That is to say, as a married woman if you wish to enjoy a successful and exciting marriage, you must learn to compliment your husband rather than compete with him.
The reason many marriages are in crisis is that some women are competing with their husbands instead of complimenting them. There is harmony in a marriage when a woman is really complimenting her husband rather than competing with him.
Any marriage in which the above-mentioned points are absent will be a mirage for a woman in such marriage to ever think or dream of enjoying a successful and exciting marriage.
I really hope that you have gotten one or two things from the post? If yes, why not share the post with your friends and followers on social media and other platforms.
I am really counting on you to share this post and other posts with your social media followers. Until I come your way again, remember, “as a woman, you hold the master key for your marriage to be successful and exciting”. Shalom!.
