What is the "Man Code?"

Ephesians 5:33 says, β€œLet each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband." The "Man Code" not exposing negative or weak things of our husbands in the public sphere. There is a general set of topics that are safe to steer clear of talking about in public. They should be reserved for just you and your husband out of respect for him. There are four areas that men generally like to keep quiet about:

  1. finances
  2. health
  3. feelings
  4. failures

We show great respect to our husbands when we try and understand these sensitive topics that we can avoid in public conversations. Respect is discovering what honors our husbands and what dishonors him. Respecting our husbands actually serve to advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Two Solutions for Respecting the Man Code

1. Talk to your husband about the issue in private and come to a resolution

2. Ask for permission from your husband if you want to share that information with someone else
