Wait, let me get in your way.
Are you putting obstacles in your bride’s life? If you are the kind of guy who intentionally limits your bride, you probably are not reading here, but is it possible you might be subconsciously working to block or limit her?
We tend to limit others due to our own fears. If she is too able, she might decide she does not need me. If she has too many friends, she might not want to spend time with me. If she is not bound up inside, she might see me for who I really am, and love me less.
Aside from being unloving and wrong, limiting your bride is not a good long-term strategy. Over time, people we limit come to resent us. They may not know why, but they will feel increasingly frustrated with us, and will not want to be with us. If you plan to be with her for the long haul, don’t put obstacles in her path.
