That said, as you venture through some of these ideas, keep in mind that all husbands are not made the same. Some may appreciate you ironing their clothes for them while others don’t trust anyone besides themselves to do it just right. You know your husband best so choose wisely.

Wives, be subject to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. (Colossians 3:18)
