6 Ways To Make Your Wife Happy Daily
“Happy wife, happy life.” Simple as that, husbands. Sometimes living by that mentality can be easier said than done and often husbands fail to live up to the challenge of making their wife happy. Especially, on a daily basis!
What if I told you that the key to a happy wife isn’t as hard as you think? In fact, you can keep your wife happy as possible by doing a number of small gestures each day.
Check out this list of sweet and simple ways you can make your wife happy each and every day. Truly live up to the saying, “happy wife, happy life.”
1. Make talk time a daily habit.
Don’t allow yourself to become so busy that you can’t spend 15 minutes a day talking with your wife. By the way, the last 15 minutes of your day when you’re utterly exhausted don’t count. If possible, use dinnertime as a place for conversation. If dinner doesn’t work, maybe it’s a five-minute phone call at lunch and 10 minutes sitting on the sofa in the evening.
2. Act interested in what your wife has to say.
Notice I wrote “act.” I know the things we wives talk about can be boring, long-winded, dramatic or illogical (or all of the above). But if you simply act as if you care about what we’re saying, it means the world to us. Just picture yourself in boardroom listening to a boring presentation by your boss. You would still act interested out of respect for your boss. Act interested in your wife’s comments, not always because the conversation is riveting, but because you love your wife.
3. Hug, cuddle and kiss throughout the day.
Remember the affectionate way you would hold her hand, put your arms around her waist, and kiss her softly while you were engaged? Do that again and again. Remind yourself to romance and court her physically with a steady flow of affection. But remember, the goal of all your hugging and cuddling isn’t to have sex that night. It’s simply to be physically close (which will naturally lead to more sex throughout the week).
4. Notice what she worries about and reassure her.
Your wife is a security seeker. Maybe she’s worried about an upcoming move, a child’s development, or financial pressures. Strengthen yourself first in the Lord so you can then encourage your wife. Hold her and reassure her often that everything is going to be okay.
5. Bring her an unexpected gift.
Most women love gifts and it doesn’t really matter whether they come in small or big packages. Surprise her with a just-because bouquet of flowers or box of chocolates. Maybe she’s compiling a wish list online of things she wants. Take a peek and surprise her with one item from her list.
6. Open up to her about yourself.
The strong, silent type works in the movies, but not in real life. Your wife wants to hear about your life. She wants to know what is making you happy and what is stressing you out. This is how she connects with you. She actually cares about what you had for lunch and the strange thing you saw on the way home. Don’t reply to your wife’s questions with one-word answers. Elaborate.
