3 Responsibilities of a Man in a Relationship

A man has roles to play in a relationship, whether in marriage or in a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship. He is responsible for these 3 roles that a man should understand in order to handle his relationship with others easily (If the woman agrees.. heh).

A man is the Head of the Household
Head of the Household means male sovereign, ruler of a kingdom and authority. His kingdom is the relationship he has with his wife/girlfriend and family. He should rule his kingdom, and not his wife or girlfriend. But don’t jump into a conclusion that being the king of a relationship is easy. Like Peter Parker’s Uncle said “with great power comes with great responsibility. -Ben Parker”. As the king of a relationship, he should be man enough to protect his relationship from anything that could break it, like how an armor protects a soldier.

A man is a Prophet
Now, you might be wondering what that means. Well, a prophet is a visionary. An authoritative person that divines the future as what Princeton University defined it. As a prophet, he should look forward to his relationship’s future, he has to take care of it, and decide what’s best for his relationship and its future. Have visions, set goals and reach it.


A man is a Priest
Yes, as a man this is your responsibility. The man should be the most prayerful in the family. As the Old Testament says, the priests are the ones who are in between man and God. They are the intercessors, and as the man of the family or relationship he should act like one. If he has kids, he should teach his kids the right things. Be a model; this molds the future of the children.

Now, I know women will react on this. But I wasn’t saying women aren’t important. I am just saying that as a woman, you should allow your man to be the king. Don’t take away their manhood. This will be my next article soon, when I will get to research more of the women’s role in a relationship.

 

I’ve got handful of good/bad experiences when it comes to relationships, name it, I’ve experienced it. Heh.  How do you or your man handle your relationship? Share it with us.

  1. good entry :)

    well, you have shared this to me a couple of times already… it’s also good that others will get to know this 3 roles :)

  2. I really enjoyed the article! I have always thought this about the man I want to spend my life with. It’s out of love and respect for each other. It works! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I agree…while the man act as a king, the woman will act as a queen, right?
    a relationship is about being a team…that is what me and my boyfriend are doing since 10 years ago…since we’re still in high school.

    And…hopefully in this august, we’ll get married :)

  4. I agree. I also think that it’s time some men realised they had a pair of balls and acted like it. There’s nothing worse than a guy ‘trying to be pc’ around women. If guys just behaved like themselves and ignored the social expectation crap they’ve been indoctrinated with – women would melt.

    Be a man – take responsibility.

  5. My boyfriend(ex) and I completly failed. I really do agree that a man should protetct his relationships, unfortuntelly he never did that, why I feeled like I have to take charge, he put out our relationship to all sort of ex girlfriend or any girls who fancy him, hw love to go out and flirt which is not harmless towards a relationship, and as the rols break our relatinship failed after one year. And also because he is not listening or respecting my oppinons and feelings, I m always sout down or he just put the phone in the bad. I think that was the most horrible relationship I have ever had, and I feel sorry for ever falling in love with him.

  6. I really enjoyed the article! at glance i laughed why a man should be prophet and sametime a priest! I think the priestly role, i have been leaving for my girl friend to hanndle! but now i known.

  7. What should a woman do when her man doesn’t assume these roles? Teach him or move on to someone that knows his responsibilities?

  8. I totally agree with you and it’s no surprise coz I am a man. Being the head of the family, he must be responsible enough to take care of his wife and children. In constant Prayer and Communication, they will have a strong and happy family.

  9. I agree. I also think that it’s time some men realised they had a pair of balls and acted like it. There’s nothing worse than a guy ‘trying to be pc’ around women. If guys just behaved like themselves and ignored the social expectation crap they’ve been indoctrinated with – women would melt.

  10. I enjoyed the article. It is so true. A man need to act like a real man and take care of his responsibilities as a man to his wife and children. A man need to act like a man and not a boy. There are to many boys that have babies trying to be a man but have no knowledge of being a real man. A man no how to talk to his wife and not enbassed her. But do his duties in the bedroom and with the children and the house.

  11. I’m surfing your website from my Android Phone and its not loading the site correctly!! Any help on what I should do?

  12. I believe in all of this however; I also believe if the man takes on a family with this the man should also be a great provider. I am living with my fiance and his son I know what my responsibilies are however; my fiance is not providing. I pay half the rent and all utilities. I cook, clean, wash clothes, Iron, I do what I a woman should to uphold the family and household but I feel I should get more in return any advice

  13. To some extent I agree with the responsibilities you stated above but what I don’t agree with is the Title “King”. This title might get to someone’s head I prefer Head of the House or relationship; that is as long as he fulfillng his role. In my situation I am the taking care of daily household chores, work full time, take care of my son and pay rent, utilities and cable which means I should be Head of Household.

    Its hard to find Mr Right nowadays. I have lots of friends which are far-fetch of stereotyping them as one..lol!…
    A man should be king aside from authority but should be a good provider to his wife and hopefully his daugther/sons thereon..

    I agree with you. It’s very hard finding one. Well I hope I would be a good one in my relationship or in marriage one day. :)

    What I can advice you is that, try talking with your fiance, just the two of you. Men sometimes just needs a poke for them to understand. Tell him what you thoughts are and maybe adjust on what the outcome is from there.

    Hmmm, you have a point there. Edited it now. Thanks for your input! :)

  15. I have been browsing online greater than 3 hours nowadays, but I by no means discovered any fascinating article like yours. It’s lovely price sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the internet will probably be much more helpful than ever before.
