As a woman that want to have a peace at home and avoid domestic violence, the first thing, you should do is to have a better and keep her relationship with God. The word of God says “A woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised”. A woman’s relationship will determine her relationship with him. No woman can pursue wise management of her home except with God leading the affairs.
There is power and wisdom in silent. Learn to shut your mouth, nothing provoke men than exchange of words. Even when you feel like talking in a manner will turn away the wrath according to Prov. 15:1. Women who constantly nag are indirectly pushing their husbands into the arms of other women. After a long day at work, the last thing, a man wants to hear is complaints. Running your husband down with all kinds of abusive words breed violence in the home. Virtue women should be able to know when to approach their husbands with certain family issues. Show some respect with your mouth, it is the root of every violence.
God has given you the responsibility of running your home as a woman, order your home, keep it in order and run it smoothly. Don’t forget the principle of cause and effect. If you want peace, in your home, do things that will bring peace and order.
Another way which women bring the beast of the men is by assumption. Don’t assume! Because your husband came late to the house does not mean he was seeing another or being unfaithful elsewhere against you.
Men need honesty even when they are not honest. Be honest in your marriage. Marriage builds on the foundation of trust cannot fail. Your partner should be able to trust you at all times. Everyone wants confidant including your man.
One area that women should be careful about is prudency, no matter how rich, a man is, he still needs a woman that is prudent in spending. When you go about spending money without considering the source and sweat, it breeds domestic violence.
While men may have epic egos, they are also extremely fragile when it comes to the matters of the heart. They feel threatened easily, and go into an insecure shell. Avoid making him feel insecure in the right way and he will love you more. Let him feels secure around you.
The word of God says, women were created to be helpmeted, helping hands should rendered to the man of the home to get the best out of him. Too much stress can develop into madness, and when madness starts to display, of course one person must suffer from its effect. Sitting down all day in the house without doing anything reasonable is wrong. A man will take the child to school, back to work, came from work to fetch water for house use, wash his clothes, provide money for the family while a woman (wife) is there doing nothing, and after all of these struggle, he will come home begging for sex from a woman that was home doing nothing such result to domestic violence.
Respect should be the keyword to avoid domestic violence. ###
