Role of Husband and Wife In The Home

A few weeks ago I came across an article that talked about how a husband said he wouldn’t help his wife because he worked. The article talked about the other person telling the first husband he doesn’t “help” either. He just does the work because they are a team. If something has to be done then it gets done.

To me marriage is just that, a team. You play of each other’s strength and weaknesses. Just like everybody is different, every marriage is different as well. What may work for yours may not work for another. That doesn’t mean one is wrong, it just means they both figured out what works for them. According to Mormon.orgYour greatest opportunity for growth, for support, and for happiness is with another person. God made marriage the ultimate companionship between two souls.

“Your life here on earth has a purpose; you are here as part of God’s plan. Before any of us were born, we existed in heaven as spirits. To give us an opportunity to grow and reach a greater potential, God created this earth where we would need physical bodies to live. Marriage between a man and a woman provides not only the God-sanctioned means to bring about children, but the spiritual and societal means to care for them. Because God loves His children, He desires each one of us to receive love, support, and care while we experience mortality. This happens best through marriage.

So, what can you do as a husband or wife? Do everything you can to serve your spouse, to honor their wishes. A wife’s role is to honor her husband, as is the husband’s role to his wife. Like I said above, you need to work as a team and do things for each other.

Same thing goes for the rest of the family. When mom and dad are happy, generally kids are happy to. “Our families are where we experience our biggest triumphs and our deepest vulnerabilities—and they are where we have the greatest potential to do good. We believe the family is divine in nature and that God designates it as the fundamental building block of society, both on earth and through eternity. As such, it becomes the foundation for civilization and a sanctuary for the individual. It is where we learn the social graces of loyalty, cooperation, and trust. It is where we learn to love ourselves and each other, to bear one another’s burdens, to find meaning in our life and to give purpose to others’ lives, and to feel the value of being part of something greater than ourselves.” We need to value everyone in our household and treat them all with respect. Once that is there and faith, more than likely families will be happy.

  1. This sounds good. And before someone gets married, they should try to consider if the other person is going to be a team, or not. And don't get married if they aren't seeing it as a team approach!

  2. I loved this article. This is so true. We are supposed to be help mates. Our children need to see this example in the home. Thank you so much for sharing

  3. I absolutely love this article! So true. My husband and I will be married 14 yrs. the 26th of this month and are very happy. We decided and agreed before we got married that we are going to be a team and partnership. We rarely argue. We never have slept in different rooms of the house and say "I Love You" before going to sleep.

  4. This is very important I love this article

  5. I love this post. My husband has worked full time since we had our first son. I always have kept working part time. So i usually do more house work and running kiddos arouns. BUT it is all about team work.
