8 Things Your Wife Expect From You
While you might not have a crystal ball that will tell you what’s running on in the mind of your wife, the truth is she only expects from you some of simple things. So, what are her expectations from you then?
- Talk to Her
She will always be interested to catch up with you, to learn how you feel. Be specific. Be real. Open up your heart to her by telling her your fears. At times, you don’t have to be the strong one. Speak out your failures and be brave enough to let her in to your world.
- Listen to Her
More than gifts, solving her issues or sex, listening to your wife is the best thing that you can do. Listening makes her feel significant and loved. Sometimes, there is really no need to fix her problems because listening alone can give her the solutions she needs.
- Encourage Her
Every day, your wife will need encouragement. If she is working out of home, praise her for her work skills. If she stays at home, tell her that you appreciate everything that she does for you. Be the greatest cheerleader of your wife.
- Care for Her
By nature, women are caregivers, but they too also need to be cared for so that they will feel complete and nurtured. Nurture her and ask her about the things that you can do to care for her.
- Prioritize Her
Make sure that your wife knows that she is more important to you and not your job or other things are at the top of your list. Many men tend to drop the pursuit after the wedding. Spend time with her and next to God, make her your priority.
- Free Her
Your wife will also want to have a deep relationship with her friends. Give her the chance of regularly meeting with her friends as this can make her feel whole.
- Lead Her
As the husband, you have to be your family’s spiritual leader. There are many cases when it is the wife who acts as the spiritual leader of the family. Women love their men who have a sense of spiritual headship. It must be self-sacrificial leadership and servant leadership. Never leave it to your wife to lead the spiritual upbringing of the kids. It is your biblical responsibility to be the leader in this point.
- Date Her
Never think that just because it is at the bottom of the list it also means that this is the lowest priority item. On the contrary, dating her on a regular basis is a must. Go out and make sure that the night will always involve the two of you. Escaping from home every now and then is very important. Schedule a getaway for one week every year. Spend time and hang out with one another. There is nothing wrong to have a crummy carpet or furniture if you choose to spend your money in taking your wife out for a date to somewhere new each year to recharge.
There you have it. Now that you know the things that your wife expects from you, make sure that you try to do some if not all of them to keep the fire burning in your relationship!
