Nothing is more important for a wife than winning the heart of her husband. Because when the husband loves his wife, marital life would be a blessing like no other.
Although people always talk about love as a fate that people don’t have control upon life continues to teach us that real love is like a plant that one can grow over time.
It takes much work and effort to build a strong bond between a husband and wife and the result is mostly granted by the grace of God; a happy marriage.
Here are 10 things to do in order to be the perfect wife:
1. Be pleasant
Try to be warm, kind, positive, understanding, and friendly to your husband, family, and friends. Work actively to be pleasant towards your husband.
Don’t be that person who lashes out at others because you had a bad day. Welcome your husband with a smile when he comes home. Listen to him, talk about his day, especially if it was a difficult one.
2. Treat him with respect
Always speak in a loving way and refrain from speaking in a harsh manner. A good wife respects her hubby. She never chooses to belittle, strike, humiliate, or otherwise harm him in private or in public.
It is better to watch what you say and think before speaking, as it is not possible to take back the words once they are said. A good wife will treat her man with respect in front of others and at home.
Communication is the key to a good and solid marriage. Do not hide things or keep secrets from your husband. Be honest. Find time to sit and talk with him on a daily basis, even if it is for only half an hour.
Good communication helps to build trust and strengthens your relationship. The wife and the husband are partners; do not make any major decisions about the family without consulting your partner.
4. Be a good listener
You may have a dozen important things to tell him, but allow him to talk first. Don’t greet him with complaints and problems the moment he comes back from work.
Fights or problems may happen, but do not let the world know about it. Rather, you should try to solve it between yourselves as partners. Try to move on and stop rehashing the past and reminding him of his faults.
5. Be supportive
A husband expects his wife’s support and understanding, especially in crisis times. A good wife loves her hubby for his successes and failures, and provides reassurance when he’s feeling down.
Support him in all stages of his life. Be proud of him on his accomplishments and genuinely compliment him.
You can then expect him to behave in return in the same manner and also respect you more for your support and thoughtfulness. If you don’t agree with him, respectfully let him know that in a healthy conversation.
6. Give him his space
As a wife, it’s important to understand that your husband’s world is not only about you. He has a family, friends, and colleagues who are also part of his life. He also may have hobbies and passions he is involved in.
Don’t expect his undivided attention at all times. Don’t stop him if he wants to go and hang out with his friends or even go out on his own. An interfering wife can sometimes be very irritating.
7. Accept him
Only by accepting him as he is, you are showing him respect and gratitude for. He has so much to offer you if only you give him the space to be himself.
He is a growing individual, just like you are. Help him grow in the direction that he chooses, and give him the chance to be the person he wants.
8. Express your love and appreciation very often
Men like to be praised and appreciated. They like to hear the words “I love you” too. Always tell him how much you love him and how lucky you are to be his wife!
Fulfill his emotional and physical needs; sexual intimacy is one of the most essential things for a happy marriage.
9. Take care of your health and appearance
Give yourself enough time, take care of your health and appearance and put it among your priorities.
Let your husband feel good whenever he looks at you. Let him see the good looking, nice smelling, and neat wife all the time.
Let him help you decide which dress to buy and which perfume to use.
10. Maintain the house
Maintain a clean house all the time. Clear away the clutter and spend time decorating the house. Apart from this, be wise with money and take all the responsibilities of a wife seriously without complaining too much.
If you are a working woman, you may want to hire a maid to take care of the household chores of cooking, cleaning, and so forth.
