Know any women who talk about the four boys they are raising – but they only have three sons, and mean their husband as the forth? I hate it when a woman says something like that, but sadly I’ve know a couple of guys for whom it was rather valid. These guys held down a decent job, but at home they played far more than they worked or helped. Never took anything seriously, set a horrible example for the kids, refused to disciple, or to back up their bride when she tried. I often wonder if a wife with such a husband leaves him when the rest of the kids are grown, and he is not?
Please realise I am not a serious guy, and my sense of humour is pretty far out there, but one has to know how to be serious, and when to dig in and get things done or help out.
