I don’t claim to have some great wisdom for the ages but the Lord instructs the older women to teach the younger women how to ‘love’ their husbands. I am an older woman and I’ve been married to the same man for nearly 28 years. There is MUCH wisdom I can share in that department not only from successes but mostly from failures.
