12 Things You Should Not Do to Your Husband

Doug Phillips from Vision Forum has a great post on his blog that puts into words pretty much how I feel about women and their role within the home and marriage. I know many see this as being old fashioned, but God's word never changes and obedience to it brings forth blessings.

I see SO many women today treating their husbands as if they are idiots and talking to them like they are children. This irritates me quicker than just about anything. Baby Girl enjoys watching a particular show on TV but the one thing neither of us can stand is the way the wife talks to her husband. It has provided many opportunities for us to discuss how wives should and should not speak to their husbands. This first quote from Doug's blog entry titled "12 Things You Should Not Do to Your Husband" is what caught my attention...

DO NOT treat your husband as one of your children. You are not running the household; he is. So no matter how busy you think you are or how many tasks you might have to perform at once you should not address your husband in this way: “Honey come here! Do this! Hold that! Grab this! Deal with this or that!” Now I am all for asking our husbands for help when he is available to give it, but bossing him around is not becoming to a wife. We must conduct ourselves as his help meet and not treat him as if the reverse were true.
