Henry felt blessed to be raised by his parents.  He learned to appreciate the relationship of marriage based on love and respect.  He has grown up with the Godly model of marriage.

He watched as his mother demonstrated respect to her husband.  In times, of disagreement she never deviated from this attitude.  Henry learned a deep respect for his father as a result of the sentiment of his mother.

It was obvious to Henry that his father loved and valued his wife.  He could see this attribute at all times when growing up.  In turn, Henry felt loved and respected. His parents were leaving a Godly legacy with their son. Love and respect are vital aspects of any marriage relationship. It brings out the best in both partners.

(Ephesians 5:33) "Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband"
