    The obligations a modern couple have to one another are entirely mutual. Any woman that sets out her set of requirements in a husband should equally be willing and ready to fulfill these herself, or exchange others of equal value.

    The absolute obligations are to love, honour and cherish each other, for better for worse, in sickness and in health, for richer for poorer, remaining faithful to one another until one of them dies. It applies to the wife as much as it does to the husband.

    The only exclusion to the ancient obligations is obedience. For as long as there is no good reason not to obey, it makes for a quiet life, but it is no longer an obligation.

    As for how each couple does this, it is entirely up to them. Everyone has different talents, shortcomings and ways of expressing love, honour and cherishing best suited for the chosen one. Overwhelmingly often, it is a trade-off, rather than a perfect match, like for like.

    While these things apply to husband and wife in a marriage, there is no reason why they should not apply to any other relationship, bonding, union, or coupling, since they are admirable principles in themselves.

  • Taking care of her husband providing him with anything he might need is a wife's purpose, not an obligation though, just something that comes from the heart. When you love a man enough to marry him then taking care of him comes natural and spontaneous.

    regardless of they determine between them on a social point. In some places there are legal checks for what a woman can assume from her husband in terms of help consequently the want for pre-nuptial agreements.
