Romans 5:19    As through the one man's
disobedience many were made sinners,
even so through the obedience of
One many will be made righteous 

Difficult to do what Adam did not?
He did not have the power of Jesus
and the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
You both can "hear God" and have help!

Ephesians 5: 23-25  For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior.  As the husband is subject to Christ in everything, so let wives also be subject in everything to their husbands.  Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.   How are we to love our wives? As Christ loved the Church and gave - Himself - up - for - her!  As that spiritual head you have legitimate rights  leading, protecting, providing, and more importantly legitimate responsibilities  when  that need comes, pray that you are given the grace to do it).  We must sacrifice for those we love.   Husbands and fathers!  We are called to lead those we proclaim to love.   Talk is cheap.   We'll find out how much we 'love' when a price must be paid. Jesus is the Way and He shows us - He leads us in that Way, and by His truth and grace we might master sin. Recall what God said to Cain: 'And if you do not do well sin is crouching at the door; its evil desire is for you, but you must master it.' The way to master sin - is to Die. Dying to self, dying to ego, die to human respect or honor as a false god, die to wealth as a false idol, die to power, die to pleasure. It is a paradox but Truth Himself - Jesus tells us; (John 12Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. 
He who loves his life loses it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.
It is only Truth that sets men free - and it is by Sanctifying Grace that keeps men free.
  It is your responsibility to help her stay on track.    Pray and fast for her and her for you when needed.
You are to serve together as one.  Unlike Adam you have Jesus to help combat the demons.

The devil knows that your wife's insecurities and fears control her.  The devil will now try to get you to join her. God will speak to you when you ask. The devil did not try Adam first. Adam's battle was with the demon's that controlled him also. Man's battle today is with the demons that controls them both. If you are serious about God.ask God to guide you in fasting and praying. Again, once He tells you what to do, DO IT! When you fail, back to Jesus to be forgiven and start over again with God.  Remember it is the devil's demons you battle, not the person the demons control. LOVE HEREphesians 6:12 We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, and powers, and rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places  This is the wife God gave you.  You have power over the demons, by the blood of Jesus, that are trying to control you through her, if you stay true to God. The devil is using the weakness God put in her. The goal of the demons are to simply get you to disobey God, by allowing her to control you in some way. This is spiritual death for both and family. Again it is all about Love!   First, God's love for you, then your love for God, then your love for your wife. 
Genesis 20:7   Restore the man to his wife; he is a prophet, he will pray for you, and you will live:
if you do not restore her, know you that you will surely die, you, and all that are yours.   
The greatest blessing you can have is both serving God together as God planned.

The devil does not have to attack a man directly, much easier to attack the one God created weaker. Satan has her attack you through her fear and lack of trust.  (demons not her)   The devil has been using this since the beginning. He is very practiced and good at it. Now a whole nation suffering from this sin seems so unreal to me. But this is the truth as God has shown me. Women often live by "feelings", this is the weakness God gave them. So easy for the satan to influence them, in this way.   
A man must learn to love and trust God, so it is with his wife, loving and trusting him.
Love is always doing what is best, for the one you love, not what they "want".   As God always does what is best for you.

Men, do you love your wife for her physical beauty?  This feeds your ego with other men?  This is simply loving yourself.   
And in the end will leave her without the love she needs. Most men and women today were raised without the discipline
needed to be truly responsible to another person. And lacks an example of true love in their lives from parents.
The example of Jesus and His dying love for us will help.   Plus His power over demons.

Paul makes it clear, although Adam and Eve committed the first sin, we are guilty of our own sin: Just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all have sinned -- ( Romans 5:12 )

One of the major sins committed by Adam and Eve, is that they showed unbelief towards God. Satan questioned God's commands, this suggested to Eve that it was ok not to trust God.

With all His love, God created a man. Out of gratitude, a man should love and serve God. With love for man God
created woman, with gratitude woman should love man and God. If a man loves God, and obeys Him God will serve and protect them and their children. Satan is jealous of man, God's creation. If man does not love and seek to obey, God can not protect him because of this sin.      Jesus does allow a way back.     Once you realize your sin. 

When Adam and Eve sinned against God by eating the fruit - they not only lost their right to stay in the Garden of Eden, but they also lost their direct spiritual connection to God.
Romans 6:23 The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ.
