My greatest challenge as I may say is in the area of submission. Hard as it is, I still believe when the Lord said that wives ought to submit to their husbands no matter what. when I'm having difficulty submitting to my husband, I really pray hard. Especially during those major decisions wherein we disagree. How about you, what is your greatest challenge as a wife?

my greatest challenge as a wife is dealing with my husband's inadequacies. He seems to have no drive to succeed as he just wants to wait for Manna from Heaven. I really love him but the pressure of earning for our family is taking its toll on me.

My husband have a bad temper. He hate to hear my children crying and teasting each other. He don't like my children making noice. I have to hide something that can make him angry easily. I have make sure that my children will never interupt his mood. I have to find good words to make sure that he wouldn't get miss understanding and make him angry. I wouldn't ask for anything I need. I feel I'm free if he is not around. The worst thing is, he have many girlfriend.

The greatest challenge as a wife for anyone would be to understand the husband the way he is. This might seem to be an ambiguous statement but I would try to clarify. When I say understanding your husband what I mean is the thought process that your husband has in a particular situation from the point of view of a male and from the point of view of the individual that he is. Always I am trying to put myself in his shoes and try to figure out what his thoughts or response would be to certain situation. But every time I find that his thought process is very different from what I assume his thought process would be. Though I must say every time I find that I am gaining in the way that I am getting closer and closer to his view. And with every such experience I come to know more about his way of thinking. And I believe when I get it more or less correct I would have less expectations from him. The lesser the expectations the better the joy in the relationship.

My greatest challenge is probably the patience. He tests me to no end and sometimes I just want to get up and leave. It has been really hard for me to stand by him at points though nothing in me really wants to go. I have a hard time stopping and listening to his side because he doesnt like to rationalize things. I find it hard not to just scream at him sometimes. The first year and a few months of our marriage has definitely been a challenge. I cannot figure out if this was the hard part and things will just get easier with time or if it is a sign that our marriage is not going to make it. I hope the hardest part is over for us.
