Success in Marriage Part 3
Success in Marriage Part 3 
By Wayne McDonald


Matthew 19:5-6 “For this reason shall a man leave his father and mother and shall be united firmly (jointed inseparably) to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has jointed together, let no man put asunder (separate)”.

Today I want to focus on the needs of the husband. Every man above everything else needs to be admired and respected by his wife. When he feels disrespected he shuts down.

In Genesis 2 God caused Adam to fall asleep and took out of his rib woman. Know wander men don’t understand woman we were asleep while they were being made. In the Hebrew the word for rib means “main beam” Wife you are called to be the biggest support for your husband. He needs your support and help. He also needs sex. God said, go and multiply and replenish the earth.

The sex drive is the strongest drive in a man next to eating. If you are letting him go to bed on a regular basis with out it you are having him climb the walls. I read a story of a woman of God who had a husband that was a businessman and worked around beautiful woman in his office.

His wife made sure that when he came home at night that she took care of her husband. That is a smart woman she kept him out of temptations way. When the husband is getting what he needs he will not be looking other places for it.

When you respect your husband and support him and make sure his sexual needs are met he will want to give you the world. Make every effort to serve each other and make sure that your spouses needs are met that will produce success in your marriage.
