5 Things Every Married Man Should Do Around Single Women

A wise man once told me that when I find myself around single women, especially when I find them attractive or interesting, I should mention my wife and family early in the conversation. I have found this advice to be very useful on many occasions.

Dear husbands, I have found the above advice and the other tips at the bottom to be essential in keeping my marriage healthy and strong. I want my marriage strong and healthy and so should you! In fact, it’s one of your biggest responsibilities in your marriage.

So let’s dig deeper into this subject. Where are some common places where you might run into this scenario? For many of you, it could easily happen at work. You could be starting a new job and find yourself around a lot of nice, new women.

 When this happens, you have to make the choice to embrace their attention or extinguish it in a friendly way by mentioning your beautiful wife and family. For some of you, you have
been working around the same women for some time. You might have had the
choice many times to engage in flirty conversation or go out with
co-workers after work. If this is you and your wife is at home waiting
for you, then it’s time to step back and assess your position as the
husband and leader. Take the necessary steps to make your relationship
with your wife the most important one again and don’t forget it. Lead
gentlemen, lead!

Even though those were just a couple quick examples, I know there are a
few of you out there that need to step up your role as a husband. Those
examples don’t apply to you? Then consider who you know and talk to at
your gym; the grocery store; the local hang out or wherever. These
“simple” places could produce difficult relationships that will harm
your relationship and love with your wife. Man up and do what needs to
be done for your marriage! [TWEET THAT]

Now that I have your attention, here are 5 things every married man
should do around single women.

There are very few exceptions for when that ring needs to be off.
Operating heavy machinery, swimming in shark infested waters, etc. If
you are about to enter a situation that makes you look at your ring and
consider if you need it on or not, LEAVE! RUN! GET AWAY FROM THERE!
Seriously, get out of that situation, your vows, marriage, children and
more depend on those important decisions. (More Here: Luke 16:10 ESV)

A married man in this position would be wise to pick out a couple great
and fun photos of him and his wife and keep them displayed at his office
or place of work. Pick a time that was fun for two reasons: it will
remind you why you love her so much and it will make for a great
conversation tool when others, especially women, ask about it. Update
the image as needed to keep the people around you knowing your
relationship is continuing to grow. Get that picture up this week and
extinguish those flames. (More Here: Psalm 119:37 ESV)

Don’t read this the wrong way; I’m not saying to be rude. I’m saying to
be careful where your eyes travel and how long they travel for when you
are in the presence of an attractive single women. You know that once
you engage in the first serious look you have signed the dotted line for
more eye trouble. Keep it short, keep it decisive and move on. Get back to that image posted at
your desk. Go! (More Here: Matthew 5:28 KJV)

If you work around single women, there is no question that conversation
will come up. It’s up to you on how you decide to speak with her. You
can choose to keep it short and general, you can choose to keep it
professional or you can choose to keep it off of those and allow it go
places it shouldn’t. Be polite, but very intentional in your
conversations. If needed, again, always be ready to bring up something
about your wife or family. Pull the pin, aim and distinguish. Safety
first. (More Here: Romans 6:13 ESV)

Did I mention anything about talking about your wife in conversation
yet? I believe I did, but this last point brings the idea to a firm
home. The single women you engage with each day, if you have to, should
be no match to your wife and family. Your family should be your first
priority wherever you are and with whomever you encounter each day. Yes,
each and every day. Keep it short, keep it simple and mention your
beautiful wife. Now pat yourself on the back and keep it up. (More Here:
Ephesians 5:25-33 ESV)

[IMPORTANT NOTE] Oh, and no matter what you have done with your current
relationships with single women, these steps can and should be started
at any time. Your wife’s feelings are and will always be more important
than the woman you need to take these steps with. Get on it!
