Protect Your Marriage #2

Having a hard time deciding what to wear because you want someone other than your spouse to notice you?

If you’re dressing with this purpose in mind what are your motives for doing so? Are you trying to get attention from the opposite sex? Is your spouse not noticing the way you look or the benefits of your hard work at the gym? Does your spouse seem distant?

Gently bring up your feelings to your spouse without accusing or yelling at them. Perhaps they’ve had a lot on their minds and also felt neglected by you, causing them to withdraw. Talk openly about your feelings and how you can meet each other’s need.

Dressing to attract someone other than your spouse will lead you towards the path of unfaithfulness. Dress to impress your spouse—no one else.

When you dress with intentions of attracting another, you may be putting someone else’s marriage in danger.

The Bible tells us:
“But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” (Matthew 5:28 ESV)

Dress yourself so that you don’t cause someone other than your spouse to desire you sexually. Keep that sexy outfit for your spouse’s eyes only.

  1. Great points! My wife and I are going to be launching a 15 day challenge for couples to help them reconnect. It’ll be interesting to see how it goes. I’m looking forward to following along with more of your posts

  2. I recently bought a handbag because it made me feel like a “New England Mom”. Ever since I had my child I’ve been dressing more like a “Mom” me and my husband laugh about it but I love feeling like “the Mommy”. Today I went for a haircut and my husband can not stop telling me how nice I look. The compliments feel good.

      1. This is true. While this cannot be helped, I think it depends on the individuals behavior.
        My husband’s attendance of meetings/events at work without my being there didn’t have an impact on our relationship. He would call me on his way home and tell me about it.
        We should be polite and friendly with our coworkers not chummy, especially those of the opposite gender.
