Now I am in the army and we are always suppose to show respect to those in a higher rank than us. I know what you are thinking and yes sometimes we respect the rank and not the person, that is besides the point. The kind of respect I am talking about is the respect between a husband and a wife. Being in the military you have to deal with and listen to all kinds of stuff. Whether it be cussing or bad jokes and as a Christian you just let them go in one ear and out the next. The reason I am talking about respect is sometime you hear the way some of these guys talk about there wives and I just can't believe it. It is so disrespectful that I can just throw up. I start to wonder if they actually talk about them like that at home too. It just amazes me that the respect they show for there wives is not better than what they say.
The one thing I always try to do in front of my peers is lift my wife up so others can see that she is a great woman. What is going to happen when they get home and they let it slip and there kids hear them talking bad about there Mom. They are going to plant a seed they wish they never planted. Then another disrespectful thing I seen is the way they talk about there wives in a way that only a husband should be sharing with his wife. You know all the intimate details of what goes on in there lives. That is when I draw the line and walk away because I don't need to hear that.
I guess what I am trying to say is we should always respect our wives for who they are and that is the love of our lives and the Mom to our kids. You would see more people defend the respect of there Mom's faster than the respect of there wives. I got a great wife and I love her to death and I would never disrespect her the way some of these guys disrespect there's. I know what you are thinking and you just say it is the military and the that is the way it is. The military teaches us respect and so we should live it as well as it is taught to us. I would not want to disrespect anybody and I hope I never make that mistake and disrespect anyone else. Let's always remember that respect is something we are taught and that we should always show it.
Our wives have earned our respect and we should always give it. I LOVE YOU VICKIE......
