Men are promised regular sexual release by Scripture.  But by the same token, women are promised that their husbands will treat them with honor and tenderness:

 

Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives,

and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with

you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.

(1 PETER 3:7)

 

It’s been said that the Greek term for “weaker partner” can also be translated “fine china,” which is a better translation within the context of marriage.  How do you handle fine china?  With respect, as you tenderly appreciate and display its finest points.  You don’t slam fine china around or put it through the blast of a dishwasher.
