How to Keep Your Husband Happy
Honey, Love, Baby, Sweetheart, Darling and hubby, these are only some of the names we use to call our husband to show our love and affection to them. The man we swore to care for and protect for the rest of our lives, no matter what the situation is. To make and keep him happy for all the years to go by, together and never letting go. There are lots of ways to keep him and it involves a lot of aspects so, let’s discuss them further.
The first one, which is the obvious and may be the first thing that made him recognize you, is your appearance. It is not true that tying the knot should set you free from beautifying yourself. Marriage should give more room for personal improvement on the woman’s behalf to make her husband happy. Always find the time to take care of yourself the same way as you take care of your husband. There may be times that you will need to go with him to parties and meet his friends or colleagues, so you need to show the woman you are who has swept the man off his feet. It never hurts to look and feel beautiful for someone, especially if that someone is the man whom you love and cherish.
Secondly, you do not have to be a master chef but if you make an effort to cook him dinner, it will surely put a smile on his face. Effort is the key factor here. Knowing that his wife exerted so much effort in cooking his favourite dish will surely add flavour to your marriage. Do not be disheartened if you did not do it properly, there is always a next time to perfect it or ask him or his mother the right way of doing it. Besides, time is your friend and you signed to spend the rest of your lifetime with him. You’ll get it better the next time and will even get the hang of it which will lead you to creating new recipes that he will surely love.
Ask him what he likes. Things are so much easier if he can communicate his wants and needs. Not only will it be much easier for you both, but this will also give way for you to understand each other more. Men would want to hear you ask these questions and would happily give you answers rather than hearing it from somebody else. Nobody knows him better than himself and you are getting to know him. Though this method is not applicable at all times, if you want to surprise him, let’s go to the next step.
His parents know him more than anybody else does. You can badger his parents with your questions, especially his mother. Take some time to spend with his mother and ask her simple questions such as, how he likes his clothes be arranged, how he wants his egg done, and the like. Not only are you gaining information about your husband, but also, you are creating a bond with your in-laws, which is beneficial to your marriage. This will bring your families closer with each other. After all, marriage is about uniting two families.
Be a part of his circle. Certainly, the two of you have another world apart from the one you both created for yourselves. You have your circle of friends, either friends you have gained from work or way back in your school years. Take time to get to know his friends and hear stories of how he was, which would give you additional idea on how you can better please him. Hold a small gathering by inviting his friends and spending some time with them. You will be surprised with the common traits your husband has with his friends and you’d easily learn a lot of new things about him. A bond with his friends is something that would make him happy; you being friends with his friends and being a friend and wife in one package.
Lastly, learn about what he does. Nothing would make him more ecstatic than having his wife spark some interest with what he does for a living, and other things. This will be easier if the two of you came from the same industry but, nevertheless, ask him how his day was, be it good or bad. There’s nothing more comforting than having someone you can talk all your troubles and accomplishments to. It may sound boring and insignificant but it is important to him, so put an effort and enter his world just for a minute. Consequently, you’ll be familiar with all his doings and may even be able to give some inputs on how things could be more efficient to his advantage while gaining new knowledge.
Marriage is about two individuals becoming one. It is about combining both of your worlds to your advantage, so utilize it. Always remember that it is not all about you, but rather, the two of you together through the coming years. You have a lifetime to explore for more information that you will need. Don’t stress yourself trying to be the perfect wife. Your love is enough to fill in the gaps you may be lacking and surely, he appreciates it because he would not be asking you to marry him if he didn’t.
