There are so many things you can do as a wife that will earn you high scores with your husband.
We may often get confused as to what we should do as wives.
That was my case a few years ago when I just got married to my husband. I was always reading books on marriage.
All I wanted to be was the best wife and for my husband and I to be so loving. I had that burning desire and I still do. At that time, the numerous books I read left me confused as there were so many things to be done.
I feel there are basic things we should concentrate on as wives.
Our husbands have different needs per time.
Their needs and what they desire changes due to a lot of reasons ranging from work pressure, age, social status, back ground, financial status, health, spiritual needs, taste, temperamental make up, emotional strength and so on.
With all these changes and with the fact that our husbands are not so relational, in that they will not necessarily communicate their needs to us as we expect.
That’s why the woman should use her God given ability to perceive and her intuition. Never be presumptuous or emotional in determining your husbands needs.
Here are 5 helpful things you can do as a good wife.
1. Lovingly ask your husband what his present needs are and how you can meet them.
Even though your husband will not tell you what he needs sometimes because of his ego, he will tell you when you ask him. Men are logical and prefer to be asked how you can help, rather than they asking you to help them. They feel more secured and a little bit protected.
When you do this as a wife, it shows you are not claiming you know him but respect him enough to approach him about how he wants you to best meet his needs.
It also shows humility and a willingness to a treat him as a unique individual with specific desires.
We will continue tomorrow. Don’t miss it.
