Every woman understands there is no perfect husband but at least, we want our men to try to be good husbands that we can be really proud of.
Below are 12 ways to be the best husband ever
1. HELP WITH HOUSE CHORES:
According to a Pew survey of 1,128 women, a man’s willingness to do house chores is a major predictor of marital bliss; so if you want to be a better husband and keep your wife happy, help out with house chores.
2. STOP VISUALISING IDEAL SPOUSES:
Some men have this habit of wishing they got married to a woman who really understands them and all that. It’s so wrong to do this because it creates potential for regret which might ruin your marriage. Instead of focusing on your wife’s flaws, frequently praising her excellent qualities would be better.
3. BE AN UNDERSTANDING HUSBAND:
According to a University of Virginia study, wives care most about how affectionate and understanding their husbands are. When was the last time you asked your wife about her day? To be a better husband, you have to learn to discuss the things she likes.
4. PUBLICLY COMPLIMENT YOU WIFE:
If you want to be a better husband, then you should learn to compliment your wife publicly as it helps make her feel more secure.
5. ENCOURAGE HER TO GO TO BED EARLY:
The best husbands understand the importance of their wives going to bed early. Your wife not getting enough sleep might mean a nightmare for you tomorrow and according to a study, the longer it takes your wife to fall asleep at night, the more negative your interactions will be the following day. If she has chores that makes her sleep late, encourage her to sleep early by doing the chores while she goes to bed.
6. USE YOUR PHONE LESS AND TALK WITH HER MORE:
With the multiple functions our phones have to offer, you find most men spending so much time on their phones instead of their wives. According to a study published in the Journal of Marriage and Family, relationship and family happiness both decreases as cell phone usage increases. So to ensure you are a better husband, use your phone less and talk to your wife more.
7. MAKE HER FEEL GOOD ABOUT HER BODY:
The best husbands understand the importance of making their wives comfortable with their body. Always tell your wife things you love about her body like her voice, her legs, her face, her butt etc.
8. USE “WE” INSTEAD OF “I”:
To be a better husband, you have to understand the importance of working as a team with your wife. The best husbands use “We” and try as much as possible to avoid “I”. A study by researchers from the University of California, Berkeley found that couples that say “We” are better at resolving disagreements than couples that use “I”, “you” or “me”. Using these pronouns doesn’t show togetherness, instead they highlight your separateness.
9. RESOLVE CONFLICTS AMICABLY:
Conflicts are part and parcel of every marriage but how you resolve them determines the success or failure of your marriage. A University of Michigan study found that couples who stifled their anger died earlier than those who expressed their anger and settled their differences amicably. The best husbands understand this and ensure they voice their opinions early while also respecting their wife’s point of view even when they are convinced she is wrong.
10. HAVE FUN WITH YOUR WIFE:
The best husbands understand the importance of having fun with their wives as boredom can be detrimental to their marriage. Always ensure you take your wife out to fun places.
11. MAKE HER FEEL GOOD IN BED:
The best husbands understand the importance of giving their wives a good time in bed. To be a better husband, you should understand what works for your wife in bed. You should understand every woman is unique.
12. KISS HER EVERY MORNING:
Kissing your wife every morning produces a lasting feeling of intimacy. Ensure you kiss your wife every morning and night before you go to bed.
