The life of a wife starts like this: a beautiful day surrounded by loving family and friends who, like you, have the highest expectations, hopes, and dreams for a beautiful life with your husband. However, as you descend from the high of the day, you have your first fight as a married couple on the honeymoon, and the routine of everyday life begins to show you what being married is all about, you realize that being a wife is much different than you thought it would be.
This happened with my friend Eliza.
A few weeks after being married, Eliza sent me a text wondering if I had time to talk. We connected on a FaceTime session not too long after that, and the first view I saw was one I'll never forget. Eliza was sitting in a chair a few feet from Jake with a frown on her face. Jake, on the other hand, wa sitting there with his shirt off tanning looking as if he was on top of the world.
As they began to tell me what was going on, I saw that Eliza was getting her first real taste of what it meant to be a wife. While she needed certain things from Jake, namely to feel like she was first place in his life, he had certain needs of her, as well.
I came away from the conversation with Eliza and Jake realizing that things weren't terribly wrong in their marriage. It was just a matter of both of them learning what the other needed.
After doing marriage education for close to two decades, I've seen countless spouses unhappy in their marriage not because of abuse, adultery, or some other severe problem; rather because of a lack of understanding their role as a spouse.
Last week we conducted a webinar for husbands detailing what their wives need, and God expects. This Thursday at 8 PM EDT, we'll conduct a webinar for wives — Wife Life: What Husbands Need & God Expects.
Here's some of what you'll learn on this webinar:
I'll be joined on the webinar by my better half, Cetelia, who will assist with the Q&A. We've already had couples sign up, and we want you to join them.
