Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma. Ephesians 5:1-1


The role of men and women in marriage is unique. The two are equal in form (both created by God) and unique in function (each serves a different purpose). Because of that reality, it is crucial for men and women to understand one another and to work together.

One of the most important things for men to understand is that women want them to be vulnerable. That word is often misunderstood and misrepresented. Vulnerability between a man and a woman in marriage is not something to avoid. Instead, it is something that brings with it connection and intimacy. Guys, don’t be afraid to be vulnerable in front of your wife. It will show her that you trust her, will give her security, and will lead to a closer connection as you do life together!


Thank God for the uniqueness God has given you in your role as a man or a woman. Pray for discernment as you come to understand what He has in store for you in your relationship.


One of the biggest keys to vulnerability is communication. Tonight (or today), make it a point to share with your significant other (or a close friend) your understanding of vulnerability in your relationship. Ask if there is something you can do to be more open with them as your relationship develops.
