Tomorrow I start a series on a report that says generosity is good for marriage (who knew?!). But first …
This blog is not called The Generous Husband because I think I am that man, but because I want to encourage all husbands to move in that direction. Today I want to honour two men I think are the epitome of The Generous Husband. I give you:
I have had the privilege of meeting both of these men, and of seeing how their brides look at and respond to them. I see that they make their brides feel safe, loved, respected and cherished. From reading what they have written, and what their brides have written about them, I know these men go out of their way to bless their wives. I also know that each of them is a student of their wife – studying her carefully to know everything possible about her so they can better love, support and bless her. Finally, I know that both these marriage has stood the test of time, each having their silver anniversary in the rear-view mirror.
When I have been married as long as these two men, I hope I am even close to being the man and husband each of them is. They are an inspiration to many, myself included, and proof that a real man can be a great husband.
Scott, Tom, to you I say well done. Please keep showing the rest of us how it should be done. May you have many, many more years of wedded bliss.
