Of all the home remedies, a good wife is the best – Kin Hubbard
The beginning of every marriage looks beautiful and attractive until there are endless chores to attend to. As wives, maintaining our homes also includes our husbands and children. When we find ourselves in the bracket of career women, there is usually a window out in striking a balance between work and marriage. Some of us have little or no insight on time management to make this work. We must bear in mind that our family is our priority so we can’t neglect them from our daily chores.
HOW TO EASE STRESS
As a couple, it’s advisable to multitask and delegate responsibilities when necessary. However, a career woman should be slow at employing the services of a stay-in house help otherwise, she runs the risk of wrecking her home. Woman, you can always manage your home with the help of your husband, so when choosing a lifetime partner, be sure to choose the one that is willing and able to help you do your chores when time is against you. Note this: you’re not obliged to complete your daily chores at all cost. Therefore, avoid looking clumsy and confused in the quest to complete your chores; always seek a helping hand when you have a lot on your plate.
WHAT MIGHT GO WRONG
A prayerful wife is all that a man can ask for since most men don’t make time to pray. Prayer in itself isn’t a vice but if it causes you to chirk your marital responsibility, then eyebrows will be raised. It is alleged that some women are itchy to visit every women’s fellowship once an advertisement hits the airwaves, neglecting their roles as wives and mothers. One may ask, “What is the point of worshipping God when at the end of the day your husband finds himself in the arms of another woman?”
It’s high time some women shunned “disturbing” God in the guise of prayer for their negligence and irresponsibility. If this happens, more work will be required to restore your home and marriage. What’s worse? Some women tend to change their dress code when they start this fellowship kind of thing; dressing as oldies and losing their sense of humor in the process. Dear wives, if your husband wants you to wear tight clothing, why not? WEAR IT FOR HIM. If he prefers loose clothing, kindly do same. Remember, both the Quran and Bible teach obeisance and submission to our husbands. Another aspect of concern, apart from food, is sex. Deny him that and watch your man unravel his true colors.
THE PATH TO TAKE
Peace of mind is something you can’t trade for silver or gold. Any home will be a haven if it provides just enough. A peaceful home is the one we all look forward to returning after a hard day’s work. If the home is peaceful, a man will confide in his wife when he is facing challenges because he knows there’s a good listener who will neither accuse nor judge him. You can be that woman whose man yearns for her whenever she’s away.
What’s more? Give him a shoulder to lean on, be his sunshine when the sky seems dark and your man will ask for nothing else in return but all of you. In addition, be there for your children, choose to be the mother every child would wish to have, and always show appreciation to your husband with the little effort he puts in place to ensure happiness and provision. Discipline your children in the most suitable way but don’t instill the fear of their father in them. Lest, they perceive him as mean and uncaring. Teach your children to love and care for their fathers just as they love you. Worship with your children and husband as often as you can. Most importantly, let God lead in everything that you do as a couple or family. Try sharing bills once in a blue moon to cut down the burden on one shoulder. To build a happy and stable home, it’s about love and care anytime, any day.
Whitney Houston once said, …I wish you joy and happiness; but above all this, I wish you LOVE; and I will always love you
Love is the strongest force that compels Jack to sacrifice his life for Rose (Titanic) and pushes Julliet to join Romeo in eternity by committing suicide (Romeo & Julliet). Love, when expressed genuinely, creates a stronger bond termed intimacy. This intimacy transcends the borders of the bedroom; in other words, it defines a unique attachment towards a special someone with whom you’ve built trust and confidence. Usually, one of the acceptable destinations to fully consummate love and intimacy is in marriage.
It is assumed that love doesn’t exist but I beg to differ. The challenge lies with how to find the kind of love we desire. Lately, traumas associated with past relationships deter people from taking a bold step to finding love. However, don’t allow what you have faced in a past relationship to stop you from moving forward and finding love again.
To foster love and strong intimacy, here are a few nuggets for your pocket;
- understand each other’s body languages
- couples should always show concern towards each other
- encourage, positively challenge, and bring out the best in your partner
- it’s okay to compromise on your values and comfort
- sometimes, throw a surprise dinner or party for your partner
- mutual respect is key to building a lasting relationship
- planning a get away romantic date out of town, will spice up the love
- you can choose to share chores and stick to them
- be creative and adventurous in the bedroom by exploring each other’s bodies in the most sensitive areas.
- decorate the bedroom or bed with some rose flowers, scented candles and toffees/chocolates.
