The wife as a helper

I came across this article on the Web on how wives can be suitable helpers to their husbands.

Gen 2:18
Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will
make him a helper suitable for him.”
I frequently warn ladies not to “ be the Holy Spirit to their husbands.” It has proven
unwise for a woman to attempt to correct her husband’s flaws. Ironically, a wise woman
will often be like the Holy Spirit in three wonderful ways.
By her words and actions a Godly wife respectively serves her husband as his:
Helper/Teacher – she reminds him of God’s Word
John 14:26 “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance
all that I said to you.
Helper/Counselor –she guides him into truth
John 16:7-13 “But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will  not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.
“And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment; concerning sin, because they do not believe in Me; and concerning
righteousness, because I go to the Father and you no longer see Me; and concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world has been judged. “I have many more things  to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. “But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth.
Helper/ Intercessor –she prays on his behalf
Rom 8:26-27 In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
