I started this series talking about how “fake it till you make it” actually does work. What about faking it till SHE changes?
I don’t have hard data to back it up, but we’ve all seen others live up to or down to our expectations, and what I’m suggesting is along those lines. Figure out how you would treat her if she were the wife God wants her to be, and start treating her that way now.
Is there a chance your wife will take advantage of this? Is it possible you’ll treat her better and she’ll stay the same? Yes and yes. Is it the right thing to do even if it doesn’t result any change in your wife? I think it is. That said, I find it unlikely many women could stay the same if this is done well and long-term.
