A good husband makes a good wife

If a husband or man wants his wife to be respectful and loving to him, he should be respectful and loving to her. A husband who treats his wife well is likely to be treated well in return.

In its more general application this means that everyone responds to good treatment by his fellows.

‘Don’t blame your wife for being short-tempered with you; you’ve been so unpleasant to her lately. A good husband makes a good wife.’
