Love in action is a beautiful thing. It is the bedrock of peace, honour, submission, care, good health, progress, openness, and fruitfulness in any home. A home where it’s abounding and reciprocated usually enjoys a heaven-on-earth.
Below are distinguishing qualities that mark anyone out as a loving husband; these qualities are usually so irresistible and compelling that your spouse can’t help but fall head over heels in love with you again and again.
A truly loving husband is godly. He obeys the commandments of God and teaches his family the same. He relates to his wife in the fear of God. He places God first in his life and then his wife and his family.
2. Loving and Caring
Love and care are two defining words of a loving husband because they demonstrate what he feels for his wife. They are like the two sides of the same coin; you can’t claim to love your wife when you don’t care about her and neither can you truly care for her f you don’t love her genuinely.
A loving husband loves his wife unconditionally, selflessly and sacrificially. He corrects her in love and does or says nothing deliberately to hurt her or amplify her weakness. His love moves him to care about every details of her life whatever the cost. He supports and assists her with house chores, nursing the children and other demanding areas of home management and careers. He equally work hard to provide and for her needs and those of the children.
This is one non-negotiable quality of a loving husband that makes his wife feel safe and secure with him, whether he is around her or far away. This quality makes husbands see their wives as sheep to be shepherded at all cost by them, not someone else. They protect their wives from anyone who may want to take advantage of them deliberately or otherwise.
This quality proves the strength and genuineness of a man’s love for his wife, making it possible for a husband to understand, appreciate and love his wife for who she is. It helps him accept her personality, peculiarities and never compare her to any other woman. He prays for grace to live happily with her despite any visible weakness while lovingly correcting those undesirable aspects of her character and also fashion out ways to complement her.
A loving husband’s faithfulness encompasses his ability to remain committed and loyal to his marital vow come what may. This quality finds expression is his desire and capability to fulfill all his responsibility to his wife and children. Hence, he is diligent, honest, open, patient, and full of integrity. He never fails to meet his wife’s intimate needs and neither does he deliberately deny her access to his body as payback for any wrong done to him. He is faithful in providing for his family and playing his fatherly role to his children.
