being a wife

Romance works for us but the dates are more about quality time than anything else - It simply gives us one night a month when we go for dinner or the cinema or whatever enjoy ourselves but act as if we are still dating rather than married - I know it sounds crazy but it really works

Hi melody08! I do not have all the answers for this but I am learning as time passes. I give my husband the love and care, respect his own individuality and support him in his endeavors...I listen to his thoughts and in what he wanted to say...I give him space and time for himself...I trust him and make him know that I believe in him...and I am blessed that he treats me this way too. According to him, I am a good wife (Haha...) and he wanted no one else and nothing else but to grow old with me. Have a nice day and take care.

we've been together for 3 years and on our first year of marriage it doesn't end well because we fought a lot and argued most of the time. It's like that getting married is just a mistake. But i realized now that he's working abroad that i missed those quarrels and fightings. In general i just miss him. being a good wife i think that we trust our husband. just be beside and support them in all the decisions that he will make. And thank him for being a good provider, a good father to his kids and a loving husband, right

Hi melody08! Yes, you are right to say that we should thank the hubbies for the good things they are doing for us...make them feel their importance in our lives. And it's just normal to have fights and misunderstandings because those things will always teach us lessons and after such fights we end up growing in the relationship. But always remember to show them and make them realize that we are also important in their lives and that we should be treated the way they want to be treated too. Have a nice day and take care.

Just to share ..... A good wife will try to treat her man with respect. Much of learning how to be respectful toward your husband has to do with the way you talk to him. The old phrase “It’s not so much what you say but how you say it” should become a wife’s motto. This doesn’t mean you need to be careful what you say to your husband – just be respectful in the way you say it. Ironically, good communication between men and women can be quite frustrating. However, a good wife will seek to discover what’s on her mind and find a way to express herself to her husband. Often, men and women will make a joint decision – while the man thinks she’s in agreement with him – but only to discover later that she thought the decision was a bad idea. Work to be pleasant toward your husband. Don’t be one of those people who makes everyone around you feel bad just because you’ve had a hard day. Good things will come from being pleasant. It’s a decision – just decide to be pleasant. But if you can’t be pleasant – make a decision not to bring him down with you.

I think the most important thing we can do for our husbands is learn how to communicate effectively with them. Women and men communicate differently. In fact, each person has their own way of communicating and its something we have to work at. For us women, we want love...men want respect. They equate respect to love. We have to learn to communicate our love for them through respect. Tell them thank you for providing for the family. Remind them how much we appreciate them and all they do for us. And even when you don't think he deserves respect, give it anyway...you will find it ignites a whole new level of him giving love to you. Be faithful to your husband, devoted to your family, and it will all fall into place over time.
