Being a father and a husband are two key roles that demand a responsible man to take up and emerge the best in his own house.
But how do you know that you are doing good as a husband, and as well as a father to your house ?
1. Your family has leadership with you and wife at the helm
2. Your wife is proud to bear your name, to be called your Mrs.
3. Your son wants to grow up to be like you. You are his benchmark and mentor
4. Your daughter wants to get married to a man like you. You are her pillar, her standard of who a man is
5. Your children feel covered, protected, guided, connected, understood, supported and empowered
6. Other women wish they had a husband like you but you don’t take advantage of that and have affairs
7. You and your wife look forward to coming home everyday. Your house is full of love
8. You look at yourself and admire the man you have become
9. You are responsible. Your wife doesn’t have to beg you to come home, to remember you have a family or to remember your role. She doesn’t struggle to have you functioning as her husband
10. You demonstrate the values you want in your family. You say “sorry” because pride doesn’t mean you set a bad example
11. Your wife glows, she looks like a woman loved, aging beautifully, wrinkles of joy and peace
12. You work hard but are not absent from your family
13. Your children talk about you with pride to their friends
14. Your children feel they can trust you with their issues
15. The thought of you having an affair is laughable. You are married to your best friend, why would you cheat on your best friend?
16. If your wife could get married to you again, she would say yes everyday. She stays with you not because you have children together or out of crcumstance but because in you she has love and gets to love
17. People call your family blessed
18. When things get tough you man up, a warrior in your family
19. You are a role model to other men
20. The sex life in your marriage doesn’t suffer. Your wife feels sufficiently sexy
21. Your greatest symbol of success is your fruitful marriage and family
22. Before you shine in the marketplace, you shine at home
23. You bring out the wife material in your spouse. Every woman is wife material, she just needs the right man to bring out that wifely side and wifely love in her
24. As God’s son, God looks at you and is pleased by how you love and look after God’s daughter
25. You have your priority right, your friends don’t come above your wife or family
26. Your wife feels secure, she doesn’t have to fight for you with other women. She is a Queen firmly fixed on her throne
27. You guard your family from outside interference; be it family, in-laws, friends or spoilers
28. You consult your wife when making decisions, you do love as a team
