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.
