Instead of demanding respect from her (like a parent would to a child), you must allow her to give you respect freely, as a gift. A Christian woman respects a man because she loves Christ, not because that man deserves it.
For now, just ignore the behavior of hers that you do not like. Instead, compliment her for the behaviors you do like. Surprise her with flowers. Focus on the positive things about her. If you are working on making her happy, you will be surprised how quickly she will start to honor you in return.
