Men should be committed to love, protect their wives

Life & Life Issues with EMMANUEL MUKULA
DIVORCE can be predicted but avoidable; a happy marriage is predictable and achievable. God the Author of marriage is still making unbreakable marriages and is willing to show us how. Let God make, mould and mend your marriage. Put God at the centre of your marriage and don’t allow anyone or anything to destroy it.
The truth is that everybody knows someone who has gone through or is going through a divorce. Divorce is painful and many who have experienced it have physical, emotional and spiritual scars. Divorce has negative effects on spouses, children, family and society at large.
Divorce leaves a trail of broken homes and broken hearts; shattered hopes and shattered dreams; confused, terrified and troubled children. Make sure you protect your marriage as a man.
For instance, the Bible says that Adam was given something to do before God gave him a wife. Therefore every prospective husband must understand and gladly accept his responsibility to establish a reliable source of income and a home. Your ability to provide for the family gives your wife the security and peace of mind that every wife desires.
Every woman deserves and desires to live in her own home, where she has the freedom and independence to be and to do what she pleases. Very few women can share the same kitchen and the same space for a prolonged period of time without conflict. Give your queen her own kingdom to rule and her own space to flourish. That is why a man ‘‘leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh”. (Genesis 2:24)
A man should never allow friends or family to get between him and his wife. Don’t associate with anyone who hates, disrespects and dishonours your wife. Make them clearly understand that you and your wife are one and your wife comes first. Anyone who truly cares about you will honour your choice of wife and will treat your wife with dignity and respect.
Anyone who comes to you to speak ill about your wife is sowing seeds of division in your marriage; stop them immediately. Shield your wife and protect your marriage. Protect your wife’s position, image, and reputation. Stand up for each other. “What God has joined together, let no one separate.” (Mark 10:9)
Your friends will come and go, children will grow up and leave, work associates will move and neighbours will relocate, but your wife will remain in your life till death do you part. Make a solid commitment to never become so focused on temporary relationships and lose your wife and marriage in the process.
Lastly, nothing and no one except God is worth losing your wife and marriage for. “So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” (Matthew 19:6).
