How Do You Spell Respect To A Husband?

Play Arrow
Watch Intro Video

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?

Please read the latest post about what I said to a husband. In your response to CHAIRS, refrain from saying, for example, that he is depriving you sexually. He may be less than responsive and this is painful to you, beyond words. What I recommend is what you are doing that is working positively for you and that encourages you.

Thanks!
