"The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife." ( 1 Cor. 7:3)
1. LOVE YOUR WIFE AS JESUS LOVES THE CHURCH
Eph. 5:25-27 "Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the Church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless."
2. LOVE YOUR WIFE AS YOUR OWN BODY
Eph. 5:28,29, 33 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.

4. BE FAITHFUL TO YOUR WIFE
