This is a known fact, one of the major reasons why some marriages are crumbling and falling apart is because some women refused to follow God’s blueprint to complement their husband rather than compete with him.
This they must do if they wish to enjoy a successful and exciting marriage, the principles that make marriages work. As long as they fail to follow the principles that make for a successful and exciting marriage, their own marriages will continue to be in crisis and at the risk of collapse.
In today’s world, the only way you will know the original thought or intent of a manufacturer of a product is by reading the manufacturer’s manual. That is why we are advised to read the manufacturer’s manual of a product before we start using the product. That is why we are advised to read the manufacturer’s manual of a product before we start using the product.
As such, as a woman, you should know the original intent of God for creating you in the first place. We can see God’s plan and purpose for creating women in Genesis 2:18 “And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.”
That is to say, the original intent of God for creating a woman is to serve as a helper to her husband, to compliment her husband. Most of the marriages that had crashed today are simply because some women had left that role of being a helper and complimenting their husbands to compete with their husbands.
Most of the marriages that had crashed today are simply because some women had left that role of being a helper and complimenting their husbands to compete with their husbands. For emphasis, women are never created to compete with their husbands, but to compliment them.
In marriages in which women leave that traditional role of being a helper and complimenting her husband and start competing with her husband, such marriage is heading for a crash.
So I am asking you, as a married woman, “are you complimenting your husband, or are you competing with him?” Your answer is what will determine whether your marriage will last or not.
Moreover, men fail to see their wives as helpers, who should complement them, but rather leaves the bulk of the responsibilities of taking care of their families to the women. Such men who are not obeying or following God’s principles for a successful marriage.
There are marriages in which it is the women that are catering for the welfare of the families while the men are lazy. In such marriages, once the women say that they are tired of playing such roles, marriages will surely collapse.
In such marriages, once the women say that they are tired of playing such roles, marriages will surely collapse. Moreover, men should realize that God’s original intent of creating a woman (your wife) is to be your helper and to compliment you and not the other way round.
So we should never for any reason leave our responsibilities of taking care of our family by transferring such roles or responsibilities to the woman, our wives. So you should never for any reason leave your responsibilities of taking care of your family by transferring such role or responsibilities to the woman, your wife.
Again, men should equally note that their wives are their helpers, not their slaves. For that reason, you should never for any reason compel or subject your wife to play a role in your marriage in which she is not willing to play just to satisfy you or your laziness.
It is widely said that behind every successful man, there is a woman. So I ask you “Is your husband a success because of you, that is, are you complimenting him very well?” Women should realize that their constantly competing with their husbands on any issue are undermining their ego and driving them crazy?
Men generally try to resist anything that could puncture their ego so never try to do anything that could deflect your husband’s ego by trying to compete with him. This is a raw gospel truth
If you look at some couples who are living in harmony, couples who are living happily, then I will show you couples who are playing their roles in their marriages, that is to say, they are complimenting each other.
I assure you, as a woman, if you will diligently play your role of complimenting your husband rather than competing with him, your marriage will never see crises. Also, it will be a success, and we will enjoy each other and our marriage to the fullness.
Until I come your way again, we should stay committed to our marriage and try to play our rightful role in our marriage by completing our husbands. Please, before you leave this post, don’t forget to share will your followers. Shalom.
