Dr Myles Munroe provided so much wisdom during his lifetime on the subject of male-female relationships, the roles and purpose of males and females as ordained by God both on earth and to the kingdom of God. In this article I have listed the 5 unique needs of women as itemized by Dr Myles Munroe in his teachings. They are explained below but you can watch the video.
To really understand the place of these needs, Myles Munroe compared them to the roles of gasoline to a car. The owner of the car doesn’t need to like gasoline, he doesn’t need to take gasoline, but since he knows that his car cannot move without gasoline, he goes every length to get gasoline for his car.
In the same way, the items listed here are not things women want— they are things they need based on their design. This article is then, both for men— that they may know how to relate with their wives, and for women— that they may know what they should watch out for in choosing their husbands.
5 Unique Needs of Women by Myles Munroe
Women need affection— they don’t just want it. The woman will not thrive if she does not receive affection. Affection, according to Myles Munroe, is the application of an effect to produce an affect. Doing something that affects her positively.
Some of these things include telling her everyday that you love her, sending her flowers for no reason, holding her hands in public or kissing her in public in front of your old girlfriend, taking her for lunch for no reason, and the likes.
Giving a woman affection is not expensive, it just takes thoughts and you don’t need to be an “affectionate person”, you have to do it because that’s what she needs, just like a car needs gasoline. A woman doesn’t want affection. She needs it.
Women need conversation, not just quick question and answer sessions but deep conversations. It is in the nature of the woman to want to express herself and the man should be there to listen when she talks.
If a woman does not find a platform for conversation with her husband, she will either look for it elsewhere or hold it up and slowly break down in pain. Either of which will affect the marriage.
3. Honesty and Openness
Don’t tell another woman what you haven’t told your wife. The man must be totally honest and open with his wife. You should give her details about every development in your life, about the projects you are working on, the challenges you are facing, the plan you have for the future, and so on.
Once you begin to hide some things from your wife, you begin to make her feel secondary. A woman doesn’t want honesty and openness. She needs it.
4. Financial Support
No matter who earns more, it is the role of the husband to be the provider in the home. The woman should never be under pressure to supply; she can only choose to support. As the man you should give her resources to do what you ask her to do, and give her other resources to do what she wants to do. A woman does not want financial support, she needs it.
5. Family Commitment
Women need a man who will remain committed to his family, not a man whose presence and input isn’t certain. This can also be called a sense of security rising from that assurance that the man has a sense of responsibility over the family.
The man should be actively involved and interested in the activities of the family and not just in making money and bringing in supplies. The man should dedicate enough time and resources for the growth of the family.
These, according to Dr Myles Munroe are the 5 Unique Needs of Woman, without which they won’t thrive and the marriage wouldn’t be fulfilling.
