Hey Covenant Groupies,

Last night Kevin and I were having a discussion about how far we've come in the 10 years we've been together. I don't know how we got on the subject, but Kevin brought up how in his daily travels, he's often confronted with the ways women dress. He talked about how difficult it is to stay focused when the other men around him are often talking about other women. This wasn't always the case, he couldn't always have this type of conversation with me. I didn't think it was "normal" for a man to discuss his lust issues with his woman. But God...

I understood and empathized with him. This is a known struggle for most, if not all men. I know my husband and I know his weaknesses, and for him to share them with me was great. However, I couldn't help but wonder where I stood on the topic, as his wife. I thank God that I'm not a jealous woman, nonethless, I ALWAYS want to be the sexiest, bravest, smartest, most dignified woman to him, but I'm not delirious to the fact that other women catch his eye.

Although, as he talked, I did wonder how I could help him in this area of his life. I can't imagine being made to admire, hunt after and be determined to capture a woman, find one and then put all of those instincts on hold. You can't put them to rest completely, but mainatining them must be quite difficult.

Do you find it difficult to hav this conversation with your wife? How empathetic could you be if your husband shared his struggle with you, honestly and then asked for your help make you feel?
