A good wife


PRACTICAL BEHAVIOUR


Get rid of weaves/extensions and wigs/ fake nails/ fake eye lashes/ pants/trousers. Never ever buy them or touch them again. Have nothing to do with it.


If you have no health issues with your hair than grow your hair natural and long. Beyond shoulder length.


Be industrious and work; bring food on the table. Like the virtuous woman proverbs 31:10-31.


Eliminate overweight out of your life. (it is not healthy)


Get strong and fit.


Dress holy


Take care of the children.


Love the sisterhood. Don’t fight your sisters. Be united.


Be nice and friendly and mild to everyone.


Be hospitable


Let your man be the boss and encourage him to be the boss. He has the final say in the house. No excuses.


Follow your man across the world, be his faithfull traveling mate


Never scream to your man


Never curse or talk rude and with the “black woman attitude”


Do not talk in the company of men; unless asked for


Don't call your husband by his first name. Call your husband "sir".


Do not ask your man to do things for you that you can do yourself; Is he your help? Or are you his help?


Ask your man what you can do for him


If your man desires to have another wife besides you (as in polygyny): accept it, love it and enjoy the benefits of it and love that sister and welcome her. Even help finding the new wife together with him.

Be subject for the Lord's sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good.

Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.
