To be a man of honor you must honor your wife and love her the same way Christ loves the church. Most men are selfish and rebellious, but the God-made man is a man created after God in His image.
Marriage is designed by God to reflect His glory and man is to honor God by honoring his wife. The Bible tells us that our prayers can be hindered if we do not honor our wives. The Bible also teaches us that we should leave our father and mother and cleave to our wife. "Leave" means to break ties. "Cleave" means to pursue after her and look towards her for your emotional support.
"Leave" and "Cleave" are good things to remember. "Cleave" also means to show passion and romance to your wife. Her desire is for a man who will serve God and show her the passion and love that she desires.
