The Irresistible Woman
“Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life”. Proverbs 31: 10-12.
A smart woman is one who seeks for ways to do her husband good. These she can accomplish by understand what a man really needs. Here are a few suggestions to focus on:
Sexual Fulfilment: It is widely known that a man’s primary need in marriage is sexual fulfillment. No food or drink refreshes and replenishes him like sex. This is the very reason why the Bible supports frequent sexual intercourse between married couple as an important conjugal right each owe to the other. Above all the marriage bed must be kept undefiled and honored for the marriage to flourish.
Companionship: Every man wants his wife to be his friend, his best friend. Remember that the couple that plays together stays together.
Attractive spouse: Most men often feel good when they look at their attractive wife. A wife’s attractiveness is often an important ingredient for the success of their marriage and should not be ignored. However, we must bear in mind that attractiveness comes from within. I Peter 3:3-5 says” Let your beauty not be external – the braiding of hair and wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes but the inner person of the heart, the lasting beauty of a gentle and tranquil spirit, which is precious in God’s sight. For in the same way the holy women who hoped in God long ago adorned themselves by being subject to their husbands(NET version).
Domestic support: Every man desires peace and quiet in their home. They often look forward to home free of stress and worry and filled with love.
Admiration: Honest admiration is a great motivator for a lot of men. Men need to know and hear that their wives are proud of them. It inspires them to do and achieve more. They see themselves in a different light: as capable of performing more responsibilities and perfecting skills far above their current level. Admiration not only energizes and motivates but also rewards existing achievements. The satisfaction derived from a wife’s admiration is greater than that from a paycheck.
