Commandment #8 for Husband

8.  Thou shalt not let anyone criticize thy wife to thy face and get away with it, neither thy father nor thy mother nor thy brethren nor thy sister nor any of thy relatives.

When you were married the two of you were made one.  That means in all things you are one.  Husbands, it is not appropriate to allow people to criticize your wife, if you do you are telling them that you agree with them.  That is very detrimental to a relationship.  When you allow people to put your wife down and don't say anything, you are putting her down yourself.  Once we start saying the negative about a spouse, it is just easier to see more and more negatives about them.  Stand up for them, let them know that they are your priority, have courage, if someone is negative, turn it around and tell them things you love about your wife.  When we look for the good and say the good, we just see more good.  Show your wife the great love you have for her and always have her back.
