Brethren, Love Your Wives

"A husband should always try to treat his wife with the greatest courtesy and respect, holding her in the highest esteem. He should speak to her in a kind and a soft manner, showing his love by word and deed. As she feels this love and tenderness she will mirror it and return it tenfold."

James E. Faust

"Never speak bad about your spouse to anyone, even if you just had the worst fight of your marriage. Refering to your wife as your 'old lady' or 'ball and chain', even just in jest, will make you think of your spouse in that manner instead of in the high esteem that he/she should be thought of."

Wayne A. Nurmela

The best among you are those who are best to women folk.

Arabic Proverb

"God didn't say that a woman was to be taken from a bone in the man's head that she should rule over him, nor from a bone in his foot that she should be trampled under his feet, but from the bone in his side, to be his companion, his equal, and his helpmeet in all their lives together."

President George Albert Smith

"Brethren, love your wives...stay close to them and consider with them the family problems. And the Lord will bring down upon you blessings you have been unable to even imagine at this time."

President Spencer W. Kimball, Area Confeence in Sweden, 1974

"Considering everything else that we do, the way we [men] treat our wives could well have the greatest impact on the character of our sons. . .There is an urgent need in our society for fathers who respect their wives and treat them with sweet, tender love."

F. Melvin Hammond, "Dad, Are You Awake?" Ensign, Nov. 2002, 98
