It is important that we do not live out our marriages using the principle of equivalent retaliation. This is when you love him or treat him well based off of your estimation of his performances. He does well and pleases you, you treat him well and please him. Tit for tat. He behaves poorly or doesn’t perform his duties properly, and you punish him by being withholding of your love and kindness.
