Real answers by real women!
The last post was about the Proverbs 31 woman and what men look for in a committed relationship leading to marriage.
Today, we look closely at the picture of a Godly man and what women say they are looking for in a husband. These are the answers women gave when asked, “What do you want in a future husband?” It will not surprise you that women have a lot to say about this topic; this is by no means an exhaustive list!
(***Disclaimer: This was a broad study group of women (all ages) tasked with responding collectively to each verse and what it would mean in marriage)
We would love the hear your thoughts and ideas so please feel free to use the comment section to be heard!
Genesis 2:18 The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”
“I would like to find a man that I can support and that we complement each other and grow together in Christ Jesus.”
The man said,
“This is now bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called ‘woman,’
for she was taken out of man.”
That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.
So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”
“It is really important to me that a man understands what it means to be “one” and to “leave and cleave,” not just with his family but with any former relationships as well. We will guard our marriage so that no one can separate us. My future husband will not consider divorce an option and will guard and protect our marriage covenant in all that he does.”
