Many times we put sooooo much into our relationship, marriage and don’t feel that we are getting the same thing back. Many times we endow them men with certain privileges, that they don’t even really demonstrate that they want or deserve. So, what does the Bible say? Well, married folks are to love, honor, and care for each other. Married folks are not to withhold sex unless agreed upon for a time. Married folks are supposed to be faithful to each other in every way. So, if you are a Christian wife and are unevenly yoked with a husband who treats you like you are only a friend (for example, he doesn’t consistently wear his wedding band, most of his phone calls are private, quality time is sporadic, there’s little to no affection, “I love you”s are few and far between, etc.), then you decide for yourself how far you want to downgrade your treatment of him. I’m not going to tell you that it’s your duty as a wife to still have sex with him and he’s cheating. I’m not going to tell you that you should still cook for him when he habitually comes home at 3 o’clock in the morning with no explanation. What I AM saying is honor God and yourself and it’s okay to back off and back it up a bit. God’s intention is NOT for us to be used or abused. Let’s get it together.

And, by the way, if your man is your boyfriend, his “privileges” are already pretty limited, right? Remember, don’t give him “husband” benefits if he’s not a husband. If he wants THAT, require him to either step up or step off.
