Who Does the Dishes?
Decision Making in Marriage
Who should pay the bills? Do the laundry? Work outside the home? Stay home with the kids? For many couples, answering these questions is difficult and frustrating. How do you decide which family responsibilities belong to you and which belong to your spouse? Winston Smith explains that we might be surprised by what God, in the Bible, says about marital roles. The Bible doesn’t have a simple, one-size-fits-all “to-do” list for husbands and wives in marriage, but there is a basic principle to live by–sacrificial love. Learn how to apply what God says about love to the everyday decisions you make with your spouse.
