How Do You Spell Respect To A Husband?

RESPECT = C.H.A.I.R.S. Wives, in the Love and Respect book, I explain Biblically what God’s Word reveals about respecting the husband’s deepest desires as a male. These are the salient concepts from my findings.  

Do these make sense to you? What doesn’t make sense to you? I would love to hear from you. 

C - Conquest: I recognize and thank him for his desire to work.

H - Hierarchy: I thank him for his motivation to protect and provide for me.

A - Authority: I acknowledge his desire to lead—and don’t subvert his leadership.

I - Insight: I listen appreciatively to his ideas and the advice he wishes to offer.

R - Relationship: I value his desire for me to be his friend and stand shoulder-to-shoulder with him.

S - Sexuality: I respond to his need sexually; I don’t deprive him.

Oh, how are you doing in these six areas? On a scale of 1 to 10, would you rate yourself a 7 or above? Why?

Again, I would love to hear from you. Please read the latest post about what I said to a husband. In your response to CHAIRS, refrain from telling us, for example, that he is depriving you sexually. He may be less than responsive and this is painful to you, beyond words. What I’d prefer to hear is what you are doing that is working positively for you and you feel encouraged, and can encourage the rest of the wives.
