  Question #1: How can I best respect my husband?

Answer #1.  When you respect your husband-something that God commands wives to do in Ephesians 5:33-you notice him, regard him, honor him, prefer him, and esteem him. Respecting him means valuing his opinion, admiring his wisdom and character, appreciating his commitment to you, and considering his values and needs-and our husbands have many needs!

I believe that meeting these needs is what respecting your husband is all about. To bolster Dennis’s confidence, for example, I try to be his number one fan. Every husband wants his wife to be on his team, to coach him when necessary-but most of all, to be his cheerleader. The macho man who is self-contained, independent, and invulnerable is a myth. Your husband needs a wife who is behind him, believing in him, appreciating him, and cheering him on as he goes out into the world every day.
