The wise woman builds her house…

Posted in Christianity, marriage by Kathy on April 17, 2008

…but the foolish tears it down with her own hands. Proverbs 14:1.

In reading one of my favorite blogs, What Women Never Hear, it struck me that so much of what the author says is summed up in this one Bible verse. His blog posts all revolve around the theme of male-female relationships, what makes them work, and what makes them fall apart. So much of this lies in the power of the woman — mostly through what she allows men to get away with (easy sex) without certain requirements (marriage), and the toll this takes on the future.

This blog has much to say both to married and unmarried women. For married women, it can turn around marriages headed towards divorce. For unmarried women, it can save them years of heartache as they bounce from one ex to another.

He says this in a few places: women marry expecting their man to change; he doesn’t; they get frustrated and unhappy. Men marry expecting women not to change; when they do, men are unhappy with the “bait and switch” she performed.

If you would be wise, then build up your own house, and read What Women Never Hear for some “fleshing out” of this Bible verse (here’s a link to post #1). But if you want to join the crowd on the road to divorce court, ignore wisdom and tear your house down with your own hands.

    Thank you. Your phrasing sings with clarity. Wish I could do that.
