Albert Einstein once defined insanity as, “Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”  By implementing some of these changes, the common mistakes women make in marriage may turn into successes.

Here are 5 common mistakes women make in marriage and what can be done about it.

1. Not showing their husband respect.   Respect his judgment.  Don’t constantly question his decisions.  Respect his abilities.  Give him a chance to fix the sink before you call the plumber.

2. Not affirming their husband as a man.  Tell your husband that you think he is handsome.  Thank him for being a good father and provider.

3. Not putting their husband before their kids.  Don’t let your life revolve around your kids.  At some point, your children will leave home and you will find yourself sharing an empty house with a total stranger. Make your relationship with your husband a top priority.

4. Not trusting their husband.  Trust can be difficult, but it is necessary.  Without it, you will never feel secure in your marriage.  And, your husband will never feel like he is worthy of your trust.  If trust has been broken by your husband, he will need to earn it back. Allow him to take the necessary steps to restore it.  A marriage without trust is built not on a rock, but on the sand.

5. Not wanting their husband physically.  Physical intimacy is important to a man.  To know that he is desired by his wife makes him feel like he is important.  Your husband wants to be wanted.  Make it a priority in your marriage.

    1. I am constantly in fear that something will happen to my husband like death and I have absolutely no idea what to do. This is because this happened to my mother. My father died and my mother didn’t know how to write a check, didn’t know who they owed money to the life insurance on him lapsed because she didn’t know when he was very sick. She had young children to take care off. She didn’t know who to call on to get help Etc. Now what if finances are on his computer. He doesn’t discuss how he does anything or why he does anything. If I don’t ask I will never know which continues to increase anxiety. If I ask, I am disrespecting my husband by questioning his Decision. He gets angry if I ask and I get angry if he doesn’t answer.It is a no win situation.

    I believe a man is not disrespected if questioned. Do other men ask other men anything? How does a man learn anything if he doesn’t ask? I believe if a man does not answer then he is not loving his wife and is setting their relationship up for failure. An honest man has nothing to hide and should be honored that their wife is asking them rather than someone else. If I can not go to my husband for information, what does that say about our relationship? If I can’t ask my husband without him feeling disrespected, I am not married to a man, I am married to an immature child! Which really means I need a divorce because this manchild does not want a marriage! I suggest men that think like this change their opinion so that they would be honored that their wife is asking them rather than someone else.

    Where in the bible does it say a woman can not ask her husband? Aren’t we the bride of Christ? Aren’t we allowed to ask Jesus and God questions? The Bible says to Ask and it shall be given to you, seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be open to you. There are other places we are told to ask. So asking your husband is not disrespectful!
