Being Your Husband's Playmate

This might make you go up in arms, but no wonder so many men leave for a younger, more fun girl. I don’t actually think men are as wrapped up in that the new girl being young and cute {even though that doesn’t hurt} vs. it has to do with that the other wives get ‘old’ in attitude. 

Women are smart and even smarter if we don’t let our emotions completely run the show. I will recognize when I’m acting like an old hag and snap out of it. You can’t believe what a girlish laugh or giggle does for a home. Let’s not lose our girl to being a woman. Let’s save her and cultivate her. This way when our young husbands of 50, 60, and 70 are living it up we will not be shouting to them ‘when are you going to grow up?’, but rather ‘what time can you come out to play?’  {Gabrielle Reece}

Our husbands want a playmate.  They want that girl they dated who laughed at his jokes and smiled at him often.  You be that girl.  Somehow, once we say "I do" we think we need to get serious and run life the way we think it should be run.  We lose our sense of wonder and excitement.  We "fall" out of love with our dear husbands and make all of our lives miserable.

Don't let this be you.  Keep your husband happy at home.  Always look your best and be joyful.  Debi Pearl wrote that she is always playing around with her husband.  They are always chasing each other and laughing together.  Why would any husband want to leave that?  Finding someone he would have more fun with would be difficult indeed.

My two married children sure have fun together with their spouses.  Whenever they are at my home, they flirt with each other, cuddle together, and kiss.  They are so in love with each other.  It is so fun to watch!  Alyssa and Erin will never be old hags.  They absolutely want to keep their wonderful husbands happy.  You be like that too, okay.

Let your fountain be blessed:
and rejoice with the wife of your youth.
Proverbs 5:18
