    Jay, I truly appreciated this prospective from the men about what makes their wives great. This was truly refreshing to hear men talk positive about marriage and their individual struggles. This discussion caused me to have a smile on my face from start to finish. Thank you Dr. Corey Allan and Jackie Bledsoe, Jr. for taking the time to share your personal experiences. God bless you both and I plan to listen to your content online as Jay has repeatedly encouraged the Right to REAL Love community to do. Thanks so much Jay for continuing to show so much love and respect for women by having Women Empowerment Month every February, as well as through the year with the numerous messages about value, self-love, accountablity and trusting God to grant His best when we put Him first. Great podcast!

    In today’s society where “hooking up” and “side pieces” are the norm and not the exception it is refreshing to hear men speak so highly of their women.

    I appreciate you gentleman keeping it real about all of the work that is involved. Having been married for a brief period I will say it was a TON of work that neither one of us were ready for nor really wanted to do. I think it came down to we didn’t love each other enough and we didn’t value what we had to work on it. Kudos to all of you!

    I like how you stayed away from what makes a “bad wife”. Very smart of you. However, I for one would love to hear what you all really think a bad wife is. Some of us women may be making the same mistakes or have the same characteristics as “bad wives” and it needs to be brought to our attention by well meaning men such as yourselves. But then again what one may consider bad someone else may love….

    Thanks for the indept look. Naked Saturdays is something all married couples should do! They say couples who sleep naked have a stronger bond.

    Taking the time to understand an emotionally sensitive wife is a must. I used to be that way and no one wanted to take the time to work through it with me. Jackie like your wife I didn’t want to be that way. I felt like a freak but God made me that way and I am better built to do his work. However, I’ve gone to the extreme. My compassionate heart is still there but it’s difficult for me to cry now. My daughter is a bucket of tears. We feel deeper than most people. I pray regularly for my daughter’s future spouse because they are going to need to put Kleenex on ther bridal registry.

      Yes! I really enjoyed listening to what both Corey and Jackie shared. It made me realize how beautiful marriage truly is.

      I agree sis. I think it is important for men to share their perspective on what a bad wife is too. I don’t think it is demeaning to discuss it. It can actually be very beneficial if the men share their thoughts in an honest, constructive and kind manner.

      You’re right about something being bad for one and not for another. It is very subjective and likely to differ from person to person.

      I was so glad Jackie shared about the process he went through with learning to accept and love his wife’s emotional sensitivity. I know this is something I will need to work on too. Similar to how Jackie was, I’m not very emotional and find it challenging to be with women who are very emotional. Jackie has given me hope that it’s something that I can work through with the right woman…if I’m in a position where I will need too.

      I appreciate you opening up and sharing your experiences and perspective too. Thank you sis!
