Do you think it is wise to make your wife happy? I believe so. A happy wife is a happy life. If you were to quarrel with your wife and make her angry, you will suffer. An angry wife 'begets' a a hungry husband. No dinner for you. Please pen your thoughts.

Hi James, of course it is wise to make your wife happy. Statistics have proven that the married man has the best and longest life between unmarried men, unmarried women and married women. But the best way to disprove those statistics is to cause your wife to be unhappy.

When there are quarrels between husbands and wives, it is usually the husbands have to give in.Or else every member of the family will be sad. An unhappy wife leads to an unhappy life. So don't play with fire. Give in to your wife even though you are right. A wife does not know the meaning of 'wrong' unless apply to her husband.

Naturally the man is always in the wrong and he may just as well own up to it long before any unnecessary quarrels start.

Dear Thea, You are absolutely right and very practical too! In actual fact, it is very easy to please a woman, they actually did not demand much... Just do not make them angry! Do discover what they like and dislike...small thoughtful gesture will do the 'magic'!

That is exactly right. Any woman would need her husband to make her happy. Making her wanted and taken care of means a great life. And it pays, because the husband is made happier. Isn't that true ??

You are half right and half wrong. A happy wife is really a happy life. You are right here but not necessary that she will keep you hungry even if you have made her angry. So you are wrong here. On the whole if you a have a good wife your life will be happy with or without titbits. Hello sir but why make her angry when you can't remain hungry? Isn't this a million dollar question?

In an ordinary normal family,at times quarrels between husbands and wives are the norm. Being an ordinary normal wife, when she is angry as the result of heated argument she may be angry. When she is angry you will know the result. Of course when she is on strike it is only fair the husband will usually end raiding the fridge or call up Pizza Hut.

In any family husband wife quarrelling is very common. I do agree to that. But any good natured person will never allow someone go hungry just because he/she is angry. They might just pretend playfully to tease where in you must have got fooled but otherwise I don't think any loving wife will allow her husband go hungry. Atleast in my family I have not seen. Your wife is too loving to allow you sleep hungry. So don't get fooled again.

I fully agree on the consequences and outcome. No one actually wants to make a wife unhappy or to come home to a warring party. However, the rules originally laid down must be upheld. The man is always the head of the house and must be respected. He will have the last say. If the woman is disagreeable on this, she can consult the Scriptures.

Jesus said and still says that man is the head of the family and wives submit to their husbands.But Jesus also tell the husbands to love their wives. But submitting means there is no dispute and the words of the husband is law. Remember the patriarch Abraham asked his wife, Sarah to tell a lie to Pharaoh by saying that she is Abraham's sister.Sarah obliged at the expense of lying.This is showing respect to her husband. Well, this is life in the olden days. Today life is different. Husbands and wives stand as equal.

as the man is the head of the household, he has the first say in all matters. then, then listen up, the wife after the man had his first say, she has the final say. hehehaha!!!!. whatever it is, its FATHER GOD in heaven who has the final authority on all this. the living word of GOD says wife submits to your husband, it actually means that the hubby provides for, covers and protects his significant half. that is the interpretation. a happy wife is one who is well taken care of by her hubby in all aspecta of her life... continuing giving her love, joy, peace, being faithful, gentle, kind, good, plenty of patience ( more patience than growing orchids),keep on forgiving though you do not know what is it for, allowing her to watch her tv shows, long tel conversation and you pay the bills ( urghhh)and long suffering and to provide her materially as 80% or so of quarelling, feud, shouting matches, punching each other are due to financially problems and another few percent due to in law problems whether near or remote control. sad it may seem but its true. its GOD'S grace and favours that we have understanding and matured spouse that makes our day worthwhile the living.likewise, the wife must be loving and forgiving too. having said all these, a happy wife is one who treasures her family and is there for them at all times to see to their needs.blessed is the family who has GOD as the centre of their focus as divine touch and guidance lights up and makes the family smiles with joy and happiness.

Of course,what you said is true.But it's not so easy to make you wife happy and your life happy.As everybody knows,life is hard when the couple are busy with their job for feed family.So,first of all,I think happy would be based on the abundant supply of money.

AndyDan, You are some what right. It is not easy as it take to to tango. Both parties must be understanding. However, the man have to be gallant enough to give-in first, then the wife will be pleased. But it is a sad case that there are men whose words are Law.He is the Lord of the House.His wife is his subject, not equal. This sad scenario still exists in some families. Money plays a big role in any family of today for without it they would worry what to have on the next meal. Love also plays a big part. Thanks for your contribution.

yes really i agree with you. happy wife is happy life. if your wife happy from you then you feel free and its means that your wife must to help out to you in your sorrows and tension. wife is life partner if your partner is happy from you then your journey will be very nice and enjoy full otherwise every thing fruitless and no any sweetness in your life.

Just imagine after a stressful day and on coming home you meet your wife at the doorstep, she calls out to you sweetly, " Darling, this is the warm towel to freshen up. Dinner is ready. I have your favourite magazine on the dining table." This will melt the man's heart. All tensions from work are gone. It begins with a happy wife .....

James, You are one smart man. I think there should be a survival handbook to be given out to all newly weds out there that states, no matter what, the husband shall not make the wife unhappy as there will be no dinner for you! There is only one rule in marriage to follow and that is, the wife is always right! lol..

This reminds me of the Boss and I with a twist: My Wife and I. Rule # 1 My wife is always right. Rule # 2 If my wife is wrong, refer to Rule # 1. This would make everybody happy. lol. Generally man is very accommodating and it is usually the husband who has to give-in to his wife to ensure blissfulness. So submerryn, do remember to apply the Two Rules to your husband when there is a disagreement. lol. Thank you for thoughts.

lol...I would have to agree that a happy wife would make for a happy life but it could also be said in reverse. A happy husband makes also for a happy life with his wife. With all this being said, the majority of men know the basics of all cooking skills, so he would be able to cook for himself if his wife refused to cook for him. I do find it hard to imagine that a wife would be so upset that she wouldn't cook for her family. You have heard the phrase "The way to a man's heart is through his stomach?" Well, if a husband and a wife were arguing, it would make sense that the wife would try to 'butter up' her husband by cooking him a nice home cooked meal. And an angry husband would want to 'butter up' his wife, he would be agreeable to whatever he suggests...they would just be agreeable, because they want to make each happy. *smiles*

The role of a wife in a happy family is to support and advise the husband in any decision-making.Gone are the days where the husband's decision right or wrong stand indisputable and supreme.The husband's word is law. But the family is not happy. Everyone live in fear.

Wife gives us the second life, if she is not happy no one in the family can live happily. A happy and satisfied wife is like a goddess and can make home a heavenly borde.

This morning I attended the church service. There is an African-American preacher with a very beautiful American wife - like a barbie doll.. He said that : 'to make your life happy is to make your wife happy'. No wonder all my brothers loves to give money to their wives! Their wifes are first priority in their life. How I wish I am their wives...and be happy everyday! In my case, I just do not know why my husband are so ignorant! I hope that this message can be read and fully undesrtood by him. Perhaps it is too late, too old to change...I felt that I am a 'failure in life'...I am hardly happy in my marriage life The only happiness is to see my son grow up.........

To be honest, I get this idea 'A Happy Wife is a Happy Life' from an African -American preacher and get it posted in Discussion today. Husbands need to love their wives unconditionally. Wives on the other hand play an equal role standing besides their husbands offering advice to their husbands and supporting all the way.

Hi James, You do not know my husband. I always stand by his sides and advise him. But it is like enter the left ear out the right ear. It seems like I am pouring water on the yam leave, it just do not stick there. When the stock market crashed many years ago, he got caught in margin call. I have to withdraw money from my Fixed Deposit to help him out but till today he did not pay me back and just ignore the fact that I always quietly supporting him. But everything that I advised he just do not take heed, I am giving up! Any advise?

Iriene, all that sounds horrid, take a few days away from him and let him see what he takes for granted, failing that then go on strike. He is not paying you the respect you deserve and you must reverse this now. Good luck.

This is a really nice quote and I believe it is true. A hapy wife can make the whole family happy. A clever husband always keep his wife happy. I rarely see my husband gets angry. It is me who always have issues against him. But, luckily he knows how to handle me and the issues I create. He knows the tips to make me happy and makes me feel special.

Marriage is a two-way traffic. It is give-in and accommodate. In most marriages, it is usually the husband who give-in and accommodate to make his wife happy. Besides, wives like to be pamper, as long as husbands pamper them they are happy. AS the results husbands are happy.

A happy wife not only makes a happy husband she also makes happy children. As a result a happy Family. A happy family means a husband loves his wife and she responds in submitting to her husband and loves him.

A happy wife makes happy husband. A happy wife and a happy husband team makes a happy life. This is simple formula. But how many can achieve it? Few. You know why. Basically, Human is selfish in nature. The husband says "Give some space." The wife response, " Give me a break." They are self-centred. Always use I and Me;no We or Us. When a man and a woman get married; the two become one. So think for the other half. I and Me change to We and Us. If everybody can do these, then divorce rate will go down. Be happy.

To have a happy life both husband and wife must be happy. Generally in every family it is the man who is most probably have to give in to his wife. This is to make his wife happy. Hence, happy life. Thank you for your response.

I strongly agree on your quotation that a happy wife equals to a happy life. When the wife or the light of the family is happy she can easily get things done. She can also influence all members of the family to be happy as she was by preparing sumptuous meals and providing clean, organize and well maintained house. Anyway, a wife can be easily pleased by their husband. They only need to be honest, and loyal, and always show affections and appreciate what their wife do to their family.

You are right. My wife is also the light of my family. She can influence every member of my family including my extended family. All we have to do is for husband and children to love her and she is happy.
