Do you know you must respect your wife if you want to make her happy in your relationship?
Respecting her does not mean you should be servile to her. Often you feel respecting your wife meant being submissive to her.
It is not like that at all.
Rather a simple wish, isn’t it?
Your wife’s womanly world is totally different from your manly world.
As a man you are very practical and matter of fact. But your wife is very different. She is very sensitive and emotional. She consistently seeks emotional confirmation that you love and respect her. When you do not respect your wife she feels you are insensitive to her emotional needs.
Mutual respect for each other is the essence of a good marriage. Married life without respect is doomed to fail.
Top 6 loving and caring ways to respect your wife – She deserves it
1. Respect her ambition
Is it a man’s prerogative to have dreams about his profession?
Not at all.
Your wife too can have ambitions about her profession. But you never understand it. You never support her dreams.
Your ego is crushed when she is more professionally successful than you. This is the reason you make derisive comments about her concentration in her job. You cannot bear her success. It makes you feel inferior to her.
A very wrong attitude.
Has your wife ever felt jealous of your success?
She is always proud when you are more successful than her. Be proud of her achievement. Encourage her to move up the ladder of success. Help her in her work. Remember her success is yours. Valuing her ambition is a top way to respect your wife.
2. Treat her as the only woman in your life
Your wife likes you when you are loyal to her.
She feels respected when you don’t ogle at other women. Your wife wants your eyes only for her.
She adores you when you make her feel as the only woman in your life – your dream girl.
She loves it when you appreciate her looks.
She feels in cloud nine when you praise her before your relatives\friends\colleagues.
3. Respect your wife by not degrading her
You feel you are being humorous when you make funny comments about your wife before your family\friends. Your wife hates it.
Never allow your family to make demeaning comments about her. Spring to support her instantly when anyone talks against her.
Never make derisive comments about her appearance. Your wife is very sensitive about it.
Never make fun of her way of doing things. She is an individual and has every right to do things as she wants to.
Follow these simple tricks to respect your wife.
4. Never let her slog alone
You never feel it is your duty to share household chores with your wife.
Just like you, your wife too feels very tired from a hectic work schedule. She too wants rest. But you let her slog alone.
Do you know your wife feels like an unpaid maid when you do not help her?
You want the best of both worlds.
You want her financial support as you cannot enjoy a good standard of living without her income. But you also feel it is your manly right to demand her service of looking after your family.
Very selfish of you, isn’t it?
Don’t make this callous mistake.
Unless you share her household chores she finds it nerve-wracking to combine household chores and office work.
Make your wife feel respected by spontaneously sharing her work load.
5. Interact with her with attentiveness
Unless you interact with your wife you never know about her feelings. When you do not cater to her emotions she feels dejected and depressed.
Your wife likes talking to you. She feels she must share all her emotions with you. You are duty bound to listen to her.
But you look everywhere except at her when she talks with you.
She shrinks inside in anguish that you do not care for her.
Look directly at your wife when she talks to you. Turn your body towards her to show you are attentive to her interaction.
Don’t be unusually calm when at home. Your wife feels uneasy. Don’t be too secretive with her. She feels left out.
6. Apologize to her
Did you utter harsh words to your wife?
Do you go about your work as if nothing happened?
A common manly mistake.
You think your wife should understand your anger. Unless you apologize she will never forget the depression and sadness your anger caused her.
Your wife feels emotionally shattered by your insensitivity.
When you apologize to her she instantly forgets her anger and forgives you.
A respected woman is always happy and content. So respect your wife to get all the comfort and coziness of a happy married life.
