- HANG OUT WITH PEOPLE WHO ENCOURAGE YOU IN YOUR MARRIAGE...not bring you down. Don't gossip about your husband.
- SHOW HIM APPRECIATION AND RESPECT - MAKE HIM A PRIORITY
Titus 2:3-5 ESV
"Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled."
