I met my wife 6 years ago when I was at my worst. I was unemployed and bankrupt with more than Php2 million in debt. I had no car, no money, no job.
Despite my breaking circumstances, she stayed with me and helped me pick myself up and try again. We were two struggling souls who met and figured out our way to succeed together as a team.
We got engaged in 2013 and took us 3 years to finally get married. Our journey wasn’t a bed of roses. No marriage is perfect. We discovered the worst in each other but we still chose to stay together despite our ugliness and Imperfections.
If there’s one very important realization I’ve had over the years, it’s the standing truth in relationships that ONE WOMAN IS MORE THAN ENOUGH.
Today, It seems an ordinary affair to see husbands or wives getting into a relationship with another partner. Maybe because they think it’s okay coz everyone’s doing it anyway. Maybe because they see that in movies and television programs. Maybe because they felt that their marriage isn’t working so it’s okay to find another. I don’t know how that works for them but it takes fidelity in marriage for it to flourish.
Our marriage may not be perfect but it has continually grown and reached milestone time after time. I attribute my success to my wife, who is there with me side by side as the leader of our family and our business. I have gained God’s favour and provisions no matter how difficult life has been. We have always made it through our hardest struggles because we have stayed together all these years.
When you become successful, never let success go to your head. Money has always been an issue in relationships. Now, I’m a company CEO and all our Income goes to my wife. She handles our bank accounts, she takes care of our finances and she’s doing it very well. Never treat your wife as inferior and never feel superior over your wife. You are co-equal partners in marriage and much more in your finances.
Just like a healthy business, it takes checks and balances in our relationships in order for us to work on some aspects. They say your phone is your personal property and you have the right privacy under the constitution. Maybe when you were single. When you get married, you can’t keep your phone’s password to yourself and impose your right to privacy. If you’re not doing anything wrong, I don’t see a reason why we should withhold our password to our spouse. Transparency breeds honesty, honesty breeds fidelity.
We’ve been married for almost 3 years and I never looked at any other woman. Nobody can ever sit in my car’s front seat except for my wife. Whether a close friend or a business partner, it’s always a no-no for any woman to occupy my wife’s throne. Like the game of chess, there’s only one queen.
I don’t know what you’re going through in your relationship right now. You may be struggling or having the time of your life as a couple, whether you’re a newlywed or were married for a couple of years. I maintain the ONE WOMAN IS ENOUGH RULE. When you love and honor your wife, God will open the floodgates of blessings and provisions to your family. You will be successful in what you do and you will live happier, and longer. And all the husbands say a big, big, AMEN! Let’s spread ONE WOMAN IS ENOUGH! #OneWOMANisENOUGH
