Wives Leaving Husbands

My son, Ryan, just went out with a new friend recently. His friend is new to the area.  He has a great job. He married his high school sweetheart.  They moved out here and he bought a new home for them. She feels like she missed out on life so she left him to go live with her friends in another state. This young man told Ryan the same thing has happened to several of his friends.

I know of two men who experienced the same thing. They both come from great families.  They love God, work hard and are men of integrity. They married "Christian" women who they intended to grow old with.  Their wives got bored and left them.

This breaks my heart. These women have been lied to. They think they will find happiness somewhere out there, outside of God's will for their lives.God's will for them is to stay with their husbands and make them happy. You will never find long-lasting happiness outside of God's will.  It is fleeting and unfulfilling. 

I pray for these young men to find wives that will love them just the way that they are now.  Wives that will learn what pleases them and serve them. Wives that respect, submit to and obey them. Wives that will allow their husbands to be the leader of the home. I pray these young men will be blessed with children. They want a family. 

I wish I could talk to these young women. It is happening more and more even in Christian homes. Most of them wouldn't want to listen to what I have to say. They would say I am being too hard on them. I would just speak the words that God speaks to them. It would change them if they would listen.

Choose wisely, young men. Find a woman who enjoys the skills that go along with homemaking and child raising. Have them read this blog and ask them if they agree with it.  Discuss everything even the tough subjects like submission. Ask them what they think their role as wife should be. Tell them you will do everything in your power to love them as Christ loves the Church. Ask God to lead you to your wife and make it clear to you.

Her children arise up, and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praiseth her.
 Many daughters have done virtuously,
but thou excellest them all.
Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain:
but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
Proverbs 31:28-30
