Three Things Wife



What is a "good wife" exactly, and how do you go about becoming one?

Early in my marriage, I was determined to be a “good” wife, but I wasn’t really sure what that meant!

Desperate to get it right, I tried to figure out exactly what it is good wives do. Do they cook meatloaf, vacuum every day, and watch football?

The list in my head of what a good wife does grew until it completely overwhelmed me.

Finally, I told my husband, “I just can’t do everything good wives do. Tell me three things you’d like me to focus on and I’ll try to do those well.”

His 3 things were simple… Be emotionally and spiritually invested in our kids, take good care of your body and soul, and keep the house tidy. (Notice he said tidy - not perfectly clean.)

Of course I don’t limit myself to these three, but understanding what matters most to my husband has certainly freed me to enjoy my marriage so much more.
