Making your partner happy is a foundation for a happy and fulfilling life together. It’s easy to think how wives require special attention but in reality; everyone wants and deserves respect, honesty, and validation coupled with unwavering love and support. These are irreducible minimums for any marriage. Treat your partner with dignity, show them they are unique, and enrich your life. Here at the Joy Vibes, we will offer a few more tips to make your wife happy but remember a durable union depends on the foundation. Focus on strengthening your relationship’s foundation.
So, you want to make your wife happy? Well, there are a few things you can do to help make that happen. Women are delicate. A wife is a life partner and the least you can do is make the ride worthwhile. Who wants to spend their lives with a person who makes them sad? I wouldn’t wish that on anyone; even my worst enemy.
Here are 10 tips to make your wife happy :
1. Be thoughtful and considerate
Ask her how her day was, really listen to her when she’s talking, and let her know that you care about her. Make her look forward to coming back home rather than dread spending time with you. Being considerate includes tucking the children, doing the dishes, preparing dinner or any other activity to communicate feelings of care and love.
2. Be supportive
If she’s going through a tough time, be there for her. If she’s trying to accomplish something, help her however you can. And if she just needs a shoulder to cry on, be ready and willing to provide one. Support is why both of you decided to come together. Two heads are better than one. Make it count. If your wife is going through 1000 things, ensure you’re one lesser item she has to endure.
3. Be affectionate
Show her physical and emotional affection. Tell her she’s beautiful, give her compliments, hold her hand, hug her, and kiss her. Let her know that she’s loved and desired. Affection is one of the things that make a wife happy in a relationship. Words of affirmation are one of the love languages. Depending on how you understand your partner, communicate to ease her fears and insecurities. A good word from my significant other brightens my days. I’m sure your wife wouldn’t mind affectionate words and deeds.
4. Be patient with her
No one is perfect, and neither are you. If she makes a mistake, don’t hold it against her. And if she’s having a bad day, try not to make it worse. Just be patient and understanding. Patience is essential for happy marriages. We all have those days. The least a husband can do is to patiently affirm their support and love during the bad days. Don’t be a pain too. Buy her chocolates or flowers to cheer her up. Or even prepare her favourite meal. Understand true love takes lots of work and sacrifices.
5. Be honest with her
Don’t lie to her or keep secrets from her. If you do, she’ll eventually find out and it’ll only make matters worse. Honesty is the best policy, especially in a marriage. It will save you a lot of trouble and heartache in the long run. A house built on sand never lasts the storm. It’s often said the truth always finds a way. Be truthful. Yes, some truths hurt deep but a lie hurts deeper. Marriages don’t thrive on sweet nothings. There comes a time when the truth is uncomfortable but bear it all the same. There’s no point living a lie. What’s the point of getting married if you can’t be truthful?
6. Be spontaneous
Plan surprise date nights, weekend getaways, or anything that’ll make her happy. Spontaneity will keep the spark alive in your marriage. It doesn’t have to be grand gestures all the time. Little things matter too. A wife wants to feel loved, special and appreciated. If you can do that, half the battle is won already. Familiarity breeds contempt. Avoid it like a plague.
7. Be a good father to your children
If you have kids, be involved in their lives. Show them love and attention. They are a part of her life and she’ll appreciate it if you can be a good father to them. Good fathers make happy wives.
8. Be genuine and authentic
Don’t try to be someone you’re not. Be genuine and authentic with your wife. If you can’t be yourself around her, then something is wrong. A wife wants a husband who she can be herself around, so don’t put up a front. Just be yourself and let her love you for who you are.
9. Be grateful for what she does
Show appreciation for what she does, even if it’s something small. Whether she’s taking care of the house, raising the kids, or working a full-time job, show her that you’re grateful. Let her know that you appreciate all that she does. A wife wants to feel loved and appreciated. If you can do that, she’ll be a happy wife.
10. Be her best friend
A wife wants a husband who she can confide in, so be her best friend. Listen to her, comfort her, and make her feel loved. Let her know that she can always come to you with anything. If you can be her best friend, she’ll be a happy wife.
Wishing you all the best
Making your wife happy is not rocket science. It’s the little things that matter. If you can do that, you’ll have a happy wife and a happy marriage.
If you can do these things, then you’re well on your way to making your wife happy. Just remember that it’s the little things that often mean the most to her. So, take the time to really listen to her and show her how much you care. If you take care of the small things, the bigger ones will be sorted too.
Make every day worth the ride!
