Listen up, men! This is the article for all married men and it should be carried by you (whether you are married or not) at all times if you want to be a good husband.
Being a husband is tough enough. Being a good husband is the toughest of all. Read on to know how you can surpass the toughness and come out with a happy wife in tow.
1. Respect your marriage
You can only be a good husband if you respect the reason behind you being one i.e. your marriage. You must respect your vows and the commitment you’ve made to your partner. Take the institution of marriage seriously and give it all you have. You won’t be disappointed.
Developing your listening skills will make you a good man as well as a good husband. Women often complain how their men don’t listen to them and are lost in their thoughts. You can turn this around by making sure you listen to all important things your wife says. The rest of things she says, well that you can simply hear and forget.
3. Help around with household chores
This is one thing men seriously need to start actively participating in. You must make it a point to help around with household chores when you can. Be it hanging out clothes to dry or cleaning up after everyone’s eaten dinner. There is no harm in doing household work and doing so does not take away from your manhood.
4. Treat her with respect
It is imperative and only fair to treat your wife with the respect she deserves. Don’t heckle and certainly don’t try to boss her around. Give her her space and dignity. And she will give you yours.
5. Show affection
A marriage can work if both the people involved make a genuine effort. And on your part, you can do so by showing affection and love for your partner. Compliment her when you walk by, kiss her before you leave for work and hug her when you return. These little things go a long way in cementing the relationship and making it strong.
6. Team work
She is your wife and so your better / equal half. Thus, it only makes sense that you’ll work as a team. You need to have common ways of dealing with kids, sorting out finances, and going about daily routine life. You’re not alone, and so there is no need to function all alone. Get together with her and work on building a beautiful life with each other.
Follow these tips and your wife is sure to think of you as a good husband. (Dating, MensXP.com)
