Five Things You Need to Tell Your Husband
You got married because you were in love. This means different things to different people. But it’s important to keep that love alive in your relationship. While dating and engaged, you are on a high of love. You are excited to get married and start your life together. After you have been together for a while, some of this may fade and you start to look at each other with a more critical eye. In case you have forgotten, here are five things you need to tell your husband today.
1. I Appreciate You
Whether your husband works, goes to school, or stays home while you work, he is a contributing partner to this relationship. It can be easy to take this for granted after it has gone on uninterrupted for a period of time. Take a moment to consider all of the ways he contributes to your well-being and the well-being of the entire household. Now tell him why you appreciate it. We all love being appreciated, even for things that we would do anyway.
2. You’re Hot
The longer a relationship lasts, the less likely partners are to tell each other that they find them physically attractive, except during intimate moments. While it’s important during those times, it’s even more important to tell him randomly.
3. I Need You
We all have the desire to feel needed. When a person does not feel needed, they are more prone to feeling down and depressed. Most men have a very strong desire to know that their partner needs them. So, let him know that you can’t live without him. It will make him feel good and it will increase his desire to do things for you, so he is always indispensable.
4. I Respect You
Love does not automatically mean respect. You may love your deadbeat brother, but you don’t respect the choices he has made in his life. So, if your husband has made good choices and is a person worthy of respect, let him know that.
5. I Love You
These three words are simple yet mean so much. We can start assuming that our partners know that we love them and forget to tell them with our words. You may think that by your actions, he knows you love him. While this is true, it’s still important to say these words aloud. So, give him a hug and tell him you love him.
Even though this article is written from a wife’s viewpoint, if you’re a man reading this, you should also say these things to your wife. Each of us needs love, appreciation, and respect in our relationships. If you are currently going through a difficult time in your marriage, you may not feel these things as strongly. However, if you look, you can find reasons why you love, respect and appreciate him. Telling him these things may be the first step you need to heal your wounds and move forward. Try it and see what happens.
