We’ve all heard the stereotypical jokes about wives overreacting and fault-finding. However, it is often the reasons why wives get upset and hurt in the first place that are overlooked. A lot of it has to do with husbands and their attitudes. So ladies, it really is his fault for getting you all riled up to begin with. Here are 10 common mistakes husbands make that if avoided would make their wives and lives a lot happier. Do you recognise some of these mistakes?
1) Overly dominant
Not all women want to be submissive, and being a man doesn’t automatically mean that he has to have the upper hand in the relationship. Husbands should treat their wives as equals and not as junior partners. A husband should always include his wife in all decision-making, and should ask her opinions on important matters too.
Say “thank you”. Whether for a home-cooked meal, a new shirt or for buying him his favorite snack, husbands should consistently show and express their appreciation. One husband I know even thanks his wife every time she does his laundry and changes their sheets. Needless to say, his wife almost never nags and theirs continues to be a blissful marriage.
3) Not complimentary enough
Women love being complimented, and who better to compliment them than their husbands? A husband should not neglect to flatter his wife on her appearance, especially if she made special effort to look good. Tell your wife how beautiful she is and tell her often. This lets her know you notice her.
During arguments, most husbands get defensive or walk out, even if they are the ones in the wrong. It doesn’t have to be a contest of who gives in first, but husbands who apologize always win. Men in happy marriages know that it is important to be able to accept that they are wrong and apologise for their mistakes.
5) Selfish during sex
No matter how tired a husband may be, he should remember to cater to his wife’s sexual needs. Being sexually considerate will assure his wife that she is still loved and desired. A wife who is happy in bed is happy in general, and happy wife, happy life.
