If you want to be considered great by your wife, start by learning to become a servant. Any time you promote her program or agenda over yours – without grumbling or complaining – you are sacrificially loving her.
— Gary and Norma Smalley
You can bear your own faults, and why not a fault in your wife?
— Benjamin Franklin
God desires that a husband and wife function as one person, the strengths of one balancing the weaknesses of the other. One of the biggest mistakes any husband can make is to exclude his “helpmate” from the financial decision process.
— Larry Burkett
Love is linked to self-esteem in woman. For a man, romantic experiences with his wife are warm and enjoyable and memorable – but not necessary. For a woman, they are her lifeblood. Her confidence, her sexual response and her zest for living are often directly related to those tender moments when she feels deeply loved and appreciated by her man.
— James Dobson
