Happy wife, happy life. You may be surprised at the number of men that loathe this little statement. However, I would like to pull a little rank on some and speak from my experience as to why this statement is so vital.
Hitting Home has been helping couples since 2002. Since that time, we have ministered to literally thousands of couples, and it has been my observation that no man that has ever disliked this statement has had a good marriage.
Let me say that again. I have never found a man that carries a disdain for the phrase, “Happy wife, happy life.” that has had a good marriage. In every case, they either have an undertone of tension in their marriage or they are greatly disconnected from their wife.
At My Happiest
Christ set the example in the scriptures. Philippians 2 tells us that he became a humble servant for the sake of God’s glory and the good of the church. This submission to God’s expectations of Him to serve and sacrifice for the church paved the way to eternal exaltation.
In the same way, I have found that I feel the most manly and I endear the most respect from my wife when I take the path of self-sacrifice toward my wife. In fact, I have found no other way to achieve happiness in my marriage, and, consequently, my life without this order in place.
If you want to continue fighting against this principle, go ahead. However, let me fast-forward you through the process and advise you to do otherwise.
