Prefer Him

February 8, 2012

in the generous life

Show preference to your husband today.

Prefer: to set or hold before or above other persons or things in estimation; like better.

Hand him the remote, tell him your exciting news first, fix his favorite meal or drag him off to the bedroom and ravish him.  Let him know that he has a special place in your heart.

Marriage Works! is offering a free e-book in celebration of National Marriage Week 2012 ~ 17 marriage educators sharing their thoughts about building your marriage.


This blog is written by a couple of gals who are in “unequal” marriages.  Our Place of Influence: Where do we choose to stand? and Our Place of Influence (Part 2): What does that look like?   Truth is all marriages are a bit unequal. So read and learn.  They share a lot of great wisdom that applies to all marriages.

Do you have, or know someone who has, ideas on how to stay close with a military husband who’s nearly never home, then goes on deployment for more than half the year? That’s us, and has been for the last nearly 4 years now, and we’re – understandably – growing in different directions.

Here’s a list of ideas that women have shared about staying in touch.

Hi, Lynn,
I appreciate your heart for ministry as well. Keep up the great work.

Hi Lori,

Thank you for this reminder! The other thing to add to the list (which my husband had to actually pull my coat tail about) is to tell them things before posting it on Twitter. Although I thought it wasn’t a big deal to post little things (which I thought were just that — little and not that important) about what was happening throughout my day, my husband said that he doesn’t like reading Twitter updates about my day before I’ve told him personally about them. Although social networks are great tools, let’s remember to still put him first by sharing info with them before we share it with our followers. :)(Even if you think that your followers need to hear how tired you were from spending a date night with your spouse, tell him first… he actually does like hearing from you…)
