Husband before children?

I *think* I've heard that the Bible tells us that God should be #1 in your life; then your husband/wife; and then your children...or something like that.

  • Sorry but my children come first. My husband is a grown man and can handle things himself if need be, then again, I'm not religious

  • Did my name appear anonymously?

  • Yes, #1 God. #2 My Husband (as in, my children will NOT divide us and our relationship will ALWAYS take president over kids). #3 Children. #4 The rest of the family. #5 Friends

  • My kids will always come before my husband. I will do all that I can to protect them, and that means leaving my marriage if being in it is going to hurt my kids. I don't see that ever happening, but my kids will always come first.

  • If the foundation of a strong family is supposed to be a strong marriage, then the husband/wife relationship should take precedence over the parent/child relationship.

  • People do not generally understand that. It does not mean your husbands basic needs come before your children. It simply means that by having a strong, stable, loving marriage, you are setting a good example for your children and giving them a secure and happy childhood.

  • nsrush..having a strong and stable famiily is one thing but putting your husband before children is another. If my husband is in need, I will do anything I can to help but my children, they are innocent and look to us to guide. Sometimes a stable enviornment is not always in a marriage

  • yes GOD is supposed to be #1 then spouse,then kids.. if we obey this we all would be happier if we show our hubbys he is #1 person here on earth he will (hopefully) put us first then our kids will be first because thats what most moms will tell hubby thats what they want.. by putting others first everyone is looking after the other & everyone is first..see what I mean.
