To have a good husband is what every woman wants. She seeks for a man who could love her, trust her, take care of her, support her, and protect her. He doesn’t have to be the richest or the most famous guy in town.
The most important point to note here is that as a husband and the head of the family, it is his responsibility to make the family have a stronger foundation in our Lord Jesus Christ. Let Him be the center of love within the family.
How a husband should treat his wife

Joshua 24:15 (NIV)
