Space and Grace

Many women wish that their husbands would help with the children or around the house more. The truth is that many husbands  don’t see the need because their wife usually jumps in and takes over what they were trying to do.

What wives need to give their husbands is “space and grace”. If a husband tries to do something and it doesn’t come right, don’t fix it. Instead, praise him for his efforts. If he attempted to empty the dishwasher and put the dishes in their incorrect places or attempted to dress the children and put their clothes on backwards, praise him for his efforts. The fact is that he tried. Don’t fuss, silently fume, or fix ANYTHING.

If a wife constantly fusses over what her husband did wrong and fixes what he has done, he will withdraw. He will stop trying and wanting to help because whatever he does could never meet his wife’s standards. Where does this leave that fussing wife? She ends up doing everything herself and wonders how her husband can just sit there on the recliner and watch her do everything without offering a helping hand.

If a wife can put this “space and grace” attitude towards her marriage she will discover a new respect for the man she loves.

  1. A husband and wife should work together like a team. When a game of any sport is being played, we don’t see team members redoing what they thought was a bad move from one of their mates. Instead, they work together with the same goal in mind: WIN!
    Husbands and wives who work together are winners!
