Is Your Wife Ugly? What Husbands Should Do if She's Not Attractive Anymore
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall…
There is one question that men don’t think of, and every man needs to ask.
When you look at your wife what do you see? Is she different in your eyes from the bride that you married? Is she maturing with grace elegance, and dignity, or does she look like she’s been ridden hard and put away wet?
We all age, grow old, and eventually stand before our Maker, but does your bride reflect the countenance of a woman who is loved well?
Reflections of You
Or is your wife ugly? Has the woman who once intoxicated you with her beauty somehow become ugly? Let me go on record. If that is true, then that’s on you.
How you see your bride is important. How others see her is, too. She is a reflection of your obedience to God and a testament to you loving her well (or not).
1 Corinthians 11:7 is proof of this: “For a man...is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man.”
Her countenance is to your glory or shame.

Has my wife become ugly? Is her countenance run-down and haggard?
If your answer is YES, her ugliness is on you! What it is about you as her husband that made her that way?
There is good news.
You are a fixer.
You are a conqueror.
You’ve got this.
Now get it done, become the man she deserves, and watch her flourish. Watch your ugly wife become beautiful again.
