Honor your wife


"The husband is duty bound to honor his wife. This is not optional and extra-legal; it is obligatory. Honor is more than the absence of disrespect; it is the according of salient, deferring respect to the one who is the main cause for true blessing residing in the home."

(R' Reuven Bulka, Jewish Marriage: A Halakhic Ethic, pg. 44-45)

[Note: The point about the home is a quote from Yevamot 62b, and not a statement on women's involvement outside the home.]

Have a great day,
