What are the qualities of a wife and the qualities of a husband?
Let’s go back to Eden again to look into that. But let’s look at another petty issue before we look into more serious ones.
NEATNESS AND CLEANLINESS
Personal neatness and cleanliness is very important. Some people only appear neat and clean outside but at home they are very dirty. In fact, some people just appear neat in their outer wears and looks, but their undies and inner wears are very dirty. This is one of the major things that do cause problems in marriages.
If you’re not neat and clean personally, it affects you more than it affects those around you or very close to you. Many people do appear their best, very neat and clean every time they meet with their partner while dating or courting. But when they become married, their dirtness and uncleanness begins to show. Then a lot of complains and quarrels start.
If you always clean your room or house only when you’re expecting visitor(s), then you are not personally neat enough. If you’re always afraid of being visited without prior notice because you don’t like people to come and see how dirty and disorganized your room or house is you are definitely a dirty person. Your room and house should always be neatly arranged and clean, either you are expecting a visitor or not.
I know there are times we need to do some special cleaning and arrangement because of special visitors. But when cleaning and proper arrangement is always done because we love to live in a clean and well arranged room, house or environment that is when we are living an ideal life.
Cleanliness and neatness attracts people to us. Dirtness pushes people away from us. In fact, you can’t sit very close to some people and not perceive terribly bad odour coming from them. Some people stink almost all the time.
Listen single brothers, ladies always appreciate guys who are always neat, clean and well dressed. In fact, it do attract some ladies to men. Men also like ladies who are always neat, clean, decent and attractive.
Men fall in love first with their eyes before they fall in love with their hearts. Ladies who are always clean, neat, attractive and decently dressed always attract more men to themself. If no man has ever looked at your direction, no demon or enemies from your village is doing you, look at yourself first —are you always clean, neat, attractive and decently dressed?
If you’re not neat and clean enough, you will even lack inner peace, personally. Your health will always be affected. You will always abore germs around you. And this may always cause you to fall sick or become unhealthy.
Personal neatness and Cleanliness is what you should develop and maintain before marriage, not in marriage. Do your best to be clean and neat always, both inside and outside.
