To be happy in a marriage you have to have a partner who is happy. Many men who have been married for a long period of time and are still going strong, have a simple but important thing to share from their experience. They have learned that the smallest, the seemingly unimportant things make a big difference in marriage. It is okay to make mistakes, but it is also important to work on them. It is okay not to be perfect, because what is important is the effort you put in to be a good husband.
Here is a list of 10 things every lovable husband has been doing continuously for years to make their spouses know they are ones they love the most
1) They Know That At Times, Their Wives Need – Just To Be Heard
To be a good listener is important and in a relationship, it’s unarguably the most significant thing. Just listen without offering a fix because your wife wants you to hear patiently and when you do so she opens up even more and lets you inside her deepest emotions. Offering a fix may not always be a good idea because at times letting things as they are is so beautiful.
2) They Never Ever Use Bitter Words
They never sound rude while communicating with their wives. Even after being together for years, these men have made sure their wives never feel threatened by their attitude or their way of communication. They never allow their emotions take over their words or actions and they can do it because they keep reminding themselves how much they love their wives.
3) They Mow The Lawn As Well As Help With The Dishes
Emptying the dishwasher, helping with the laundry, making the bed are some of the simple things that they have been doing. The idea is to be involved with your wife in making the house feel like a home.
4) They Always Accommodate Their Wives’ Preferences
While preparing meals, asking your wife’s preference shows how much importance you give to her taste and liking. Always ask her which movie she wants to watch. Small things show that you don’t want to dominate. What you are doing is not one sided because she also gives you equal preference and always accommodates your liking.
5) They Never Shy Away From Saying Thank You And Please
These men have always believed that kind words reflect gentleness. They have never avoided giving their better halves the appreciation they deserved. They have always made it a point to express their gratitude towards their spouses. They have never shied away from saying ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ to show gentleness and thankfulness.
6) They Take Their Wives’ Opinion Positively
Some men don’t discuss their problems with their wives. But men in prolonged relationships argue that seeking their spouse’s views while making the decision has always helped them. Your wife’s insight and perception towards other’s feelings will always be a valuable input in your decision- making process.
7) They Express In Words “I Love You”
Each day of their life, they have told their wife the three simple yet very powerful words ‘I love you’. Those words never lost their power because the mouth that uttered them had the sincerity of heart to support them.
8) They Apologize For Their Mistakes
A marriage is a journey and there is always room for improvement. A man who accepts the positive advice of his wife and incorporates the same in his daily life is not only a better husband but also a better human being.
9) They Never Get Tired Of Complimenting Their Wives
When you compliment your wife on her looks when she dresses up or tries a new look or dress, she understands how much you like her. She knows that already but your words matter a lot. When in the company of friends and relatives, a husband’s appreciation and praise for all the efforts and hard work the wife puts in is a gesture that goes long way in strengthening the bond.
When your relationship is based on love you don’t have to force yourself to do these things. They come naturally because you want to tell the whole world how wonderful your wife is.
10) They Make Sure To Assist Her Dreams
The secret of keeping your partner happy is very simple. Understanding her interests and providing her the time and opportunity to pursue her dreams is the way to do that.
What you say and the way you act affects the way your wife feels everyday she spends with you. Doing things that can make her happy is part of your marriage vows. The key to an everlasting happy married life lies in the consistency and honesty with which you make efforts to prioritize your wife’s happiness.
