The Golden Rule

If the Golden Rule applies to all areas of life, then there is surely a way to use it in marriage. 

How should a husband treat his wife? 
How does he want his sisters, and daughters treated by their husbands? 

How should a wife treat her husband? 
How does she want her brothers and sons treated by their wives? 

Wives have the right to ask their husbands, "Is this the way you would want your mother or sister treated? 
Husbands have the right to ask their wives, "Is this the way you would want your father or brother treated? 

Ironically, when one spouse treats the other spouse poorly, the children can learn and duplicate this behavior, 
either as aggressors or as victims.
