The wife in the home can become unappreciated by her husband over time because of being involved in day-to-day routines and responsibilities, unlike women whom the husband may encounter outside the home. In addition to honoring the marriage vow that he has made to his wife, the husband must make every effort to remember the strength and excitement of their original attraction, and do his part in keeping that "spark" alive by remembering what it was about her that originally attracted him to her, as well as his actions and attitudes toward her during their courtship; and continuing to exhibit those same characteristics toward her. He must also remember that he is seeing the women whom he encounters outside the home at their best, and free from the responsibilities that day-to-day involvement would entail, as well as take into account the immense injury that he would be causing to his family -- as well as potential harm to himself (Proverbs 6:34-35) -- by yielding to temptation.
