Simple tips to become a better husband to your spouse every day

If you wish to be with your partner until you grow grey and old, make sure you put constant efforts in your relationship.

Just because your wife can do everything around the house, doesn’t mean she has to. Planning dates and scheduling events are something you should be a part of, too. Leaving everything to your wife and pressuring her with all the emotional labor is not a sign of a good husband!

Do you wish to be a good husband? Here is how you can be one:

1. Appreciate your wife

One of the most common complains wives around the globe have is that their husbands don’t appreciate the things they do for them, the house and for the children. All of their efforts are left unnoticed by their spouse.

Understand that your wife is also a human being and wants to be appreciated. Assuming that she knows how much you love her isn’t enough. Tell her that. Appreciate her for all the things she does for you and the family.

2. Participate in decision making

Most of the time husbands completely rely on their wives when it comes to decision making. That shouldn’t be the case. Marriage is a team work, not a one-woman show. Sit with your wife and discuss the issues. Give your input, participate in decision making.

3. Be financially transparent

Men have a tendency to hide their debts and financial issues from their wives. They lie and pretend that everything is okay, suffer silently and then get mad at their wives for not keeping a check on their expenses.

Tell your wife about all the troubles you’re facing. There’s no room for secrets in a marriage. When you hide things from your wife, you make her feel less important and neglected. Share your financial problems with your wife, she has every right to know about it.

4. Leave work at work

Where most husbands go wrong is when they start bringing their office work to home. All they do is talk about themselves, the problems they’re facing at work, what they are planning to do next and so on.

When you come home to your wife, make sure you leave your work worries at the office itself. Ask your wife about how her day was. Spend some quality time with her. Keep your phones away.

5. Communicate

When it comes to communication, men are terrible. Most men are incapable of expressing their emotions the way they want to. It is important to know that healthy communication is what keeps a marriage going on and on for years.

Make sure you communicate with your wife. Talk to her about anything, doesn’t matter. Don’t let words become a barrier between you two. Communication is the reason behind successful and happy marriages.

6. Take care of your children

Spend quality time with your kids. Taking them out to an amusement park and attending their PTM’s isn’t just your wife’s job. Be a good dad, be there for your children. Help them with their homework, have a good daddy-kiddo time.

When compared to women, males spend less time with their children. They are also less emotionally available. Be a good father and take care of your kids. Be as involved you can with their lives. Take time out for them.

7. Remember important days

To men, dates may just be dates but when it comes to women, they take little things very seriously. Remember your wife’s birthday, your anniversary and your children’s birthdays. When you forget a day which is important to your wife, it makes her feel as if she’s not important to you.

Make sure you remember the dates and things which mean so much to your wife. Don’t let her feel unwanted and unappreciated. Surprise her instead. Women like to feel a little more loved once in a while.
