A very close friend of mine is not married, never has been, but if the right person came along she would consider spending the rest of her life with him. She notices how husbands treat their wives. In fact, she makes a point of watching married men. The other day she witnessed a man open the door for his wife and you would have thought he kept her from getting ran over by a car!
My husband is one of those guys who treats women like they are special...princesses. But I am the only queen. There were times, many years ago, when I didn't want anyone to open doors for me, or hold my umbrella, or drop me off at the door of the theatre and then park the car. You see I belonged to NOW! I could bring home the bacon and fry it up in a pan and never, never let him forget he was a man. I did not want him to take care of me. I had already been in 2 marriages and I was not interested in being on anyone's arm. That is until my man convinced me that I was worthy of being treated like a lady. And he still treats me like a queen after 25 years!
Our four sons have seen their father treat their mother with respect and love. They have also seen how I managed a banking center, opened a cross stitch shop, founded different ministries and run a household. Only one son is married and my prayer is he will treat his wife as his father treats me. I read a wonderful book, "Sex and the Soul of a Woman" by Paula Rinehart, and she was able to put into words what I have felt. I celebrate being a woman now....I am worth loving!
