    Cool Cherish/Treasure/Value?

    Hello amigos!

    A good husband must cherish/treasure/value his wife.

    Is there a slight difference among these verbs in this sample? or Do they have similar meaning?

    Thanks,

    Sam

    Hi,
    "Cherish" and "treasure" mean about the same, in this context, but value has quite a different meaning, in that it implies that he finds certain aspects of his wife's character/abilities to be useful, of value, whereas the other two indicate an amorous adoration.
