Hello Dear Listeners, welcome to overcoming temptations. My name is Oyisi Okatahi. Today our topic is titled: The 6 needs in Marriage for Men. My reference bible.org
Proverbs 24:3. By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established. Now, let’s look at the five needs husbands have. The first is sexual fulfillment. The typical wife doesn’t understand her husband’s deep need for sex anymore than the typical husband understands his wife’s deep need for affection. But these two ingredients can work very closely together in a happy, fulfilled marriage. Sex can come naturally and often, if there is enough affection.
The second need for a man is companionship. He needs her to be his playmate. It is not uncommon for women, when they are single, to join men in pursuing their interests. They find themselves playing football, and watching sports and movies they would never have chosen on their own.
After marriage wives often try to interest their husbands in activities more to their own liking. If their attempts fail, they may encourage their husbands to continue their recreational activities without them. But this option is very dangerous to a marriage, because men place surprising importance on having their wives as recreational companions. Spending recreational time with his wife is very important to a man.
A husband’s third need is an attractive or beautiful spouse. Remember beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. A man needs a wife who looks good to him. As much as beauty is not the most important thing according to Proverbs 31:30, however it still has a key place in marriage. Most men find it very difficult to appreciate a woman for her inner qualities alone-there must be more. A man’s need for physical attractiveness in a mate is profound.
The fourth need for a man is domestic support. So deep is a husband’s need for domestic support from his wife that he often fantasizes about how she will greet him lovingly and pleasantly at the door, about well-behaved children who likewise act glad to see him and welcome him to the comfort of a well-maintained home.
The fantasy continues as his wife urges him to sit down and relax before taking part in a tasty dinner. Later the family goes out for an evening stroll, and he returns to put the children to bed with no hassle or fuss. Then he and his wife relax, talk together, and perhaps watch a little television until they retire at a reasonable hour to love each other. The males need for his wife to “take care of things”–especially him–is widespread, persistent, and deep.
The fifth need is admiration. He needs her to be proud of him. Wives need to learn how to express the admiration they already feel for their husbands instead of pressuring them to greater achievements. Honest admiration is a great motivator for men. When a woman tells a man she thinks he’s wonderful, that inspires him to achieve more. He sees himself capable of handling new responsibilities and perfecting skills far above those of his present level.
The six need is respect. A man needs his wife to respect and honor him. This will bring the man joy and peace. A nagging or disrespectful wife will always be a source of grief to her husband. However with humility a man is drawn to his wife. Humility does not mean a woman does not have a mind of her own or that her husband is better, it means she submits to her husband in obedience to God.
Wish you a blessed day.
