**Just something that has been on my mind. The issue of respect comes up a lot in various threads. A lot of them have to do with husbands. I remember one post talking about how we have to respect a person just because they are a person and we have to respect a person’s authority just because they hold that position. I believe an example having to do with a bad president was used.
Anyways, lots of women find it hard to accept that their husbands deserve respect just because they are their husbands. They don’t have to earn it. They don’t even have to be good husbands at all. We have to respect our husbands because they are a part of us…our spouse. But let’s face it, how can we do that when our husbands may be horrible?
By not confusing respect with admiration. Respect should be a given. Admiration is what can’t be automatic, it is naturally earned. I think a lot of women miss that boat when choosing a spouse (men too I’m sure). We need to choose spouses that are worthy of our admiration.
** So what do you admire about your spouse?**
