I’ve been married for almost 7 years now. It is not a fairytale life where everything is happily ever after. In fact, there are challenges that can ruin relationships but we got over them. But the truth is, there will be more in the future and I’m looking forward to facing them head on (of course with my wife holding my hand and urging my not to soil myself in the process).
One thing I learned in this relationship is that not everything is about me. In fact, husbands need to learn how to make their wives happy. OK, remove that smirk on your face, it’s more than the physical. So here are some suggestions on how to make your wife happy:
Say you love her
You married her so I assume you love her. If you do, please make sure your wife hears it from you. Sure, action speaks louder than words. But from time to time, it is nice hearing these words. Please, a recorded message does not count!
Show her you love her
Now, as a corollary of the one above, it’s time to actually show it. This means you put her first. Put her before your own wants and needs. Put her on a pedestal. We all have our ways to show this. Be as unique as possible. After all, she is a special woman. She deserves something special.
Admit your mistakes and say you’re sorry
Don’t be a jerk and point to others for the blame. Man up and admit your mistakes. So set your ego aside and say you are sorry.
Do something special for no reason
It does not have to be an anniversary or some special day. Do something special for your wife. Whether it’s a simple gesture of cooking for her or an elegant dinner for two just do something out of the ordinary with her at the center of it all.
Help your wife
Our wives are overworked. And most men do not realize this. For working moms, work does not end when arriving home. It’s just another hat they have to wear. So pick up some chores and tasks so that your wife gets some help. Don’t just lounge on the sofa while your wife does the heavy burden of caring for the family.
Compliment your wife
Getting some appreciation goes a long way. Little things can help boost morale and motivation. Admit it, even you require some pick me ups from time to time. So go ahead, give your wife some compliment.
Shut up and listen
Here’s something that will challenge most men – shutting up. If you haven’t done this, try it. It’s really good for the throat. But more than just zipping it; learn to actively listen to your wife. She has a lot to say and share. More importantly, learn when to do this.
A happy marriage does not mean having no problems. Oh how I wish it were that easy. But what do I know? I’m married for only 7 years and I must say I’m enjoying every minute of it. It’s not a fairytale marriage where everyone lives happily ever after. But we’re working on that.
