Having a good husband will do you good

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

The husband you choose is the man who will give you freedom to explore options in your life. In a recent article it was stated that women needed a husband. It's not that women need a husband; it's that a good husband offers women the ability to broaden and add interest to her life.

The majority of men are focused and competitive with excelling in their job. They don't need a lot of entertainment with friends, and the majority is happy hanging out with their family. Women are broader; they want friends, theater, restaurants, a life at home and one outside. Whether a woman chooses to stay home or not would be a choice most women would love to have the financial backing to make.

There has been a move in recent years against trusting men, and promoting the thought that women can do everything on their own. This idea isn't working for the family, because no one can do everything on their own. Women burn out just as men do when they are completely responsible for children, work, home and social time. The best choice is the choice women make prior to marriage in who they marry.

Ways a supportive husband helps women grow and feel secure and complete:

Financial independence is wonderful, but when you have a husband, you feel the love of another human being and let's face it; you cannot take money to bed with you. And no matter how wealthy you are alone, having a committed relationship is still very important to most women. When women were asked what they prefer, money or a balanced life, they overwhelmingly responded a balanced life. You can see this clearly in looking at financial records. Working part-time is much more preferred by women than men. The majority of women prefer balance, and although getting to the top may be important, having and raising children means they often times will put their careers on hold in an effort to fulfill their need for family and home.

Women are meant to network and they do this through relationships. Relationships require time, understanding, and nurturance. These are stereotypical female qualities. Having a husband who supports you when you have a bad day means you always have someone on your side and someone who can help you make changes you need to make while still loving the person you are.

Having a supportive husband means you have a confidante and love all in one. He helps share the family load and shares the emotional burdens of life. Women tend to take on too many things, and often times put themselves last. Husbands help women by encouraging "play time."

Intimacy improves with a committed relationship for women. Although passion may feel more intense with novelty, in every study, women who are in a secured relationship felt more able to express their sexuality.

Women don't need a husband to have a balance, complete life, but they do have a more complete balanced life with a GOOD husband. Too many women get confused with the importance of finding the right husband, and they become jaded with marriage. Take your time finding and choosing a life mate, and the chances are higher that he will complete and improve your life.

    The question came up, “Do pickup lines actually work?” To answer this, I went down to The Ginger Man in the Rice Village in Houston, Texas, and asked people what they thought.

    Obesity is an epidemic all over the world. It underlies illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Food addicts differ from people who overeat during holidays or special events. They differ because they have a relationship with food that is unhealthy.
