  • He who finds a wife finds a good thing,
    And obtains favor from the Lord.”
    Proverbs 18:22 (NKJV)


  • His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’Matthew 25:21 (NKJV)


  • She sets about her work vigorously;
    her arms are strong for her tasks.
    18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
    and her lamp does not go out at night.
    19 In her hand she holds the distaff
    and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
    20 She opens her arms to the poor
    and extends her hands to the needy.Proverbs 31:17-20 (NIV)


  • Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.Genesis 2:24 (NKJV)


  • Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
    And lean not on your own understanding;
    6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,
    And He shall direct your paths.Proverbs 3:5-6 (NKJV)



  • Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. 24 Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything.25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, 26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, 27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. 28 So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church.”Ephesians 5:22-29 (NKJV)

    Listening to both men gave me insight into how men feel. To me it’s never an issue who makes more. If I make more than my significant other he will always be the man. It’s our duty to be the helpmate. To be supportive, loving, caring. To do what we were created to do. Jay Mayo I admire your honesty and openness. Jay Diggs it takes a real man to publicly see his short comings and check himself. I’ve shared this podcast with everyone I know. Absolutely love it.

      I respect your honesty and you’re right about a wife being purposed to be a helpmate, supportive, loving and caring.

      Thank you for your kind words and I truly appreciate you sharing the podcast with everyone you know. I pray they find value in it too.

      Thank you for your continued support and God bless you!

    This was a great podcast. I do feel that most men don’t like making less money then their women. I dated a man and I was making more money then him. I feel like once a woman starts to make more money then it is an issue for the man that is making less. I think it should just give the guy more ambition to go out there and hustle hard. It shouldn’t always be competition when it comes to income. If you truly love someone then someone’s making more money then the other shouldn’t matter. As long as the man continues to be a man in the relationship and everyone has respect for each other then it should be good. I guess this why discussing salary is a sensitive issue because it can ruin or make a relationship.

      Hey Anye!

      Thank you so much for listening. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the discussion.

      You’re right, finances are a sensitive topic for many couples to address.

      I hope that discussions, such as this, will help people understand how important it is for us to share our perspectives on money and who “should” earn more or less with our partners.

      If two people are not in alignment on the way they view money and finances, it can result in problems in their relationship.

      I appreciate you sharing your experiences and thoughts on the topic too. Thank you and God bless you!!!
