A happy marriage is built on both the husband and wife being happy. It is the wife’s job to ensure that her husband is happy and that, she has done everything she can to ensure that happiness, just as it’s the husband’s job to ensure his wife’s happiness. The thing is though, that men can often get bogged down with overly complicated ideas about how to make his wife happy, when in truth it’s the simple things that you really want to be focusing on. So what simple things can you do, to ensure that you wife is happy?
1. Listen to her
You might not always be interested in what your wife has to say, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t listen. If your wife has chosen to share something with you, then it is clearly important to her and that should make it important to you. If your wife is feeling blue, then it is especially important that you listen to her, because you promised in your wedding vows to take care of her, always.
2. Compliment her
You shouldn’t wait until your wife wears something new or has a haircut before, you compliment her. Instead, you should complement her often and not just because she has made an effort. If you compliment your wife, whilst she’s in her chill out clothes, then it will mean ten times as much, as if would have if you had done it whilst she was dressed up.
3. Tell her you love her
It can be easy to fall into the trap of taking your wife for granted, but that doesn’t mean that you should sit back and allow it to happen. When it comes to making your wife happy, then simple reminders of the fact that you care, can really go a long way. If you tell your wife that you love her each day, but without it seeming, as though, you are doing so because you have to, then this will make your wife much happier than you will realize.
4. Always have her back
Sometimes all your wife needs is to know that you have her back. A marriage should be a supportive place, where you both feel, as though you can turn to each other for help and support. If your wife knows that you will always support her, even if she is the one in the wrong, then you are opening the doors to an honest and happy marriage.
5. Be patient with her
It’s easy to forget sometimes that your wife is her own person with her own problems, but this can lead to problems in your marriage. You need to appreciate that your wife will encounter problems in her life, which might affect the way she relates to you and when that happens, you need to be patient with her and you need to be understanding too.
6. Be respectful towards her
A happy marriage is built on respect. If you want your wife to be happy, then you need to be respectful of her, always. This means that you should always try to see things from her point of view and you should never be nasty. It’s important to remember that sometimes we all get angry and that is okay, but there is a difference between angry and nasty and those lines should never be crossed.
7. Take her on dates
You might be married, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t still be trying to impress your wife. When it comes to a marriage, it takes work on both sides, to ensure that the relationship stays happy and healthy. One of the things that a lot couples struggle with, is keeping the emotional bond, which you both share before you get married. This bond needs attention to keep it alive and taking your wife out on dates, is the perfect way to keep it going.
8. Treat her
There might be special dates throughout the year, where you are expected to celebrate certain things, such as, Valentine’s Day, but that doesn’t mean that normal days can’t be special. If you want to cheer your wife up or just surprise her, then treat her for no reason other than you want to. Prove to her that you are thinking about her, even when you don’t have to and then watch the smile wash over her face.
9. Be honest with her
It can be hard to tell the truth sometimes, but if you want your wife to be happy, then you have to be honest with her at all times. There is nothing worse than finding out that the person you love has been keeping things from you, so don’t do that to your wife. It might be hard at first, but telling the truth is always the right thing to do and it shows a level of respect, which can’t be faltered.
10. Put her first
There isn’t anything wrong with putting your needs first, but when it comes to your wife’s needs then there shouldn’t be any competition. You have promised to dedicate your life to your wife and this is a promise, which you need to keep if you want your wife to be happy.
It doesn’t take grand gestures and overly complicated plans to make your wife happy. Instead, you can be making your wife happy on a daily basis by doing these simple things. If you want a happy marriage then you should always be thinking about your wife’s happiness, because by being her husband you have accepted responsibility for it, just as, she has yours.
A marriage isn’t built on special occasions, but all the normal days, where nothing really happens, but from, which life are built and it is those days that you should be focusing on. It is those none special days that you should be putting special, simple efforts towards making your wife happy.
