A great marriage is one in which the needs of each spouse are recognized and met by the other in a biblical way.
God designed marriage to be a reflection of His image on earth. The Bible tells wives to respect their husbands (Ephesians 5:33), and for both spouses to submit to one another (Ephesians 5:21). The word “submission” is like the word “submarine.” It means to put your mission under the other person’s mission.
A few of a man’s greatest needs are companionship, sex and, most importantly, honor. Meeting these needs is the key to a husband’s heart. The Bible says that wives are to treat their husbands as though they were interacting with Jesus. When wives respect and honor their husbands in the same way they would treat Jesus, the result is a happy, empowered husband.
