Key Bible Verse: Husbands, love your wives and never treat them harshly. (Colossians 3:19)

Dig Deeper: 

How does [your wife] feel about:

  • Being a mother?
  • What she wants to be doing in 10 years?
  • Her childhood?
  • Each of her siblings?
  • Her losses in life?
  • Her dad?
  • Her mom?
  • Your family?
  • Your involvement with your family?
  • Raising children?
  • How you respond to [your] children?
  • Your work?
  • Her career?
  • Material items?

For every one of these areas you don’t know the answer to, it’s essential that you find out. How do you learn? Watch your wife. Observe and listen with the same intensity you give to a football game or video game. You’ll see and hear things that have been evident for years.
