Men in Christian culture like to say they have “married up” or “married out of their league.” They make a point to speak of their wife in glowing terms as often as possible.
Phrases often heard from the husband include:
“How did I get so blessed?”
“Yes, I married up!”
“My wife is way better looking and smarter than me.”
“I married way out of my league!”
Likewise, women in Christian culture use their own sanctioned vernacular when referencing their husbands. The nuances of this will be explored in a future post.
