Unarguably, when a man and a woman are legally declared husband and wife, Christianity said that they have become one in Christ. This is so true because, as married couple, they will henceforth be regarded as one. But the duration of their union is not guaranteed. That is to say that they can still break up if there are no rules to guide their activities and actions.

One of the major reasons why marriages crash is disrespect. Of course, a man need to respect himself and his wife, and the woman need to respect herself and her husband. But as many different traditions may have it, a woman is required to accord more respect to her husband, and not the other way round.
Men hate it when they are disrespected by the women whom they have paid their pride price. Most times, disrespect comes as a result of lack of rules, regulations and restrictions, therefore, as a man, you need to give your wife these 5 restrictions below, or closely manage their activities instead.

1. Your phone.
Your phone should be added to the list of your personal belongings. This is because, majority of women only browse through their husbands' phones to check if they are cheating on them. When your wife has the full access to your phone, it could be dangerous.
Some women are too carried away by minor things. She might see a suspicious content in your phone and conclude within herself that you are a cheat. This will not only make her to lose the respect she has for you, but it can also ruin your marriage.

The best thing to do is to restrict her access to your phone. Some things are better left unseen no matter how ignorable they may be, especially when a woman is involved.
Although, not all women have such light brain, may be I should say that not all women are too gullible to believe that their husbands are cheating on them based on what they saw on their husbands' phones, but problems are better avoided or prevented than controlled. Of course, it is said that prevention is better than control.

2. Bank details.
The only bank details your wife should have access to is your mutual joint account. Aside this account, your wife should not have access to any other account belonging to you for the sake of your respect and privacy.
No matter how loyal your wife is, she should be restricted from operating your bank account at her own convenience.
These bank details you should restrict your wife from are your ATM card, the pin, your BVN and other important details. You may not understand this until you have a bad experience that will make you to understand it better.

In the first first paragraph, I mentioned that the duration of your marriage is not guaranteed, considering what is happening in the society nowadays. If your wife does not want to continue with the marriage, if she has all these details, she might get away with your money. It is as simple as that.
Respect does not end at greetings. Privacy is one of the attributes of respect. When your wife begins to use your bank account as she likes, especially when she do that without your consent, it won't be wrong if we say that she has breached your privacy.
It is disrespectful for a woman to withdraw money from her husband's bank account without his consent just because she is his wife. Can't you see how disrespectful that sounds?

Over familiarity can ruin your marriage. She is your wife, yes, I agree with you, but there are some restrictions you must give her. The above 2 restrictions are the most important ones. You should also respect her own restrictions too.
