What does it mean for a man to follow the biblical admonition to nurture and cherish his wife, despite differences in the relationship?
Maybe you can relate to this exchange between author and speaker, Dan Seaborn, and his wife Jane:
Jane: I like hot tea.
Dan:I like sweetened iced tea.
Jane:I don’t like to be sweaty.
Dan: I love to sweat.
Jane: Yellow lights mean stop.
Dan: Yellow lights mean floor it, baby!
Jane: He drives way too fast.
Dan: She drives way too slowly.
Jane: I like grilled chicken.
Dan:I like my chicken deep fried in oil and covered in Shake and Bake.
Men and women are different. It’s a fact. But how does that affect marriage?
On our Focus on the Family Broadcast “Nurture Your Wife, Stay Married for Life,” we’re airing a timeless recording of Dan Seaborn offering a fun look at how differences can drive husbands and wives apart … or bring them together.
