Most men leave home in search of their purpose or in search of a help mate to fulfil their purpose. When a man senses that his wife has become a threat to fulfilling his purpose, he will start keeping a distance. When a man believes that he has not made progress in fulfilling his purpose while in a marriage, he starts fighting and internal battle in his heart. Eventually he will leave home. This is the reason why some men become violent towards their wife, thinking that the woman is the reason why they are not fulfilling purpose. Some men openly blame their wives for their failures. The reason is that for a man, purpose is life. It is better to be a dead man, than to be a man not fulfilling purpose.

Every woman must first understand the life purpose of her husband. This is very important! Secondly, identify the part she can play to fulfil it. When a man and his wife are in unity of purpose, living together and tolerating each other becomes easier, because there is a purpose and a hope ahead.

Make him know that you have an important role to play in his life’s purpose and that you are ready and able to perform that role.
