I love my wife. She is truly a godly partner in life. She is kind and thoughtful. She seeks to fulfill who and what she was made to be by God - not man.
My wife doesn't stive for equal rights. Why would she want to lower her standards. I thank God every day that He blessed me with a woman I DON'T DESERVE. I will accept this beautiful and godly gift under one condition. The condition is . . . that the love of Christ is superior in every way.
Jesus is my primary relationship in every relationship. How I treat my wife, as well as all people, must be and remain secondary. The awesome thing about this understanding is that I don't seek to treat people based on how they treat me; rather, how I understand and relate to my primary relationship - Jesus. (cf. Love and Respect)
