Make Him Number One

The third secret to winning your husband's love in The Secrets Of Fascinating Womanhood is to make him number one {after God, of course}.  Make him your king and you will become his queen!

After a long day at work, you need to ignore any grumpy remarks. Make allowances. Don't react.  Going home to an unsympathetic wife is the main reason a husband leaves his wife for another woman.

A man cannot help but deeply love a woman who treats him lovingly and comforts him when he is tired and discouraged after a long day.  When he's going through a hard time just sympathise with him, support him, and trust him.

This is taken word-for-word from a 1950s public high school home economics textbook explaining how to prepare for a husband's arrival from work ~

Have dinner ready.

Prepare yourself.

Clear away the clutter.

Prepare the children.

Minimize all noise.

Don't greet him with problems.

Don't complain if he is late for dinner.

Listen to him.

Make the evening his.

The goal:  Try to make your home a place of peace and order where your husband can renew himself in body and spirit.

{Can you imagine that being in a high school textbook today?  Women would vomit...No wonder divorce is rampant today.}

The main reason men resist having more children is because they become very low on the totem pole once babies arrive.  This is what she writes ~

We should not follow the world and limit our families.  I believe the larger your family, the richer your life as life goes on.  {I LOVE this quote and think it is so true.  Our children have brought us so much joy in our lives.}

So keep that man number one even after your children arrive.  This is the greatest gift you can give your be madly in love with their daddy!

Your wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of your house:  your children like olive plants round about your table
Psalm 128:3

Lo, children are a heritage of the Lord:  and the fruit of the womb is his reward
Psalm 127:3

Her children arise up and call her blessed;  her husband also, and he praises her.
