Strengthening the Christian relationship with our spouse is a necessity of life! (Philippians 2:1-7)
Sometimes this may go against our very nature but God has called Christian men/husbands to a higher standard. (1 Peter 3:7; Colossians 3:19)
1 Peter 3:1-4 (ESV) Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives, 2 when they see your respectful and pure conduct. 3 Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— 4 but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.
