be fixed by you if you pay careful attention to what is
happening in your household while others are medical and need
external intervention. No matter what is causing the unhappiness
most husbands say that, if his wife is unhappy, the entire
household is generally unhappy. Therefore, we will show you 5
ways to have a happy and healthy relationship with your wife.
1. Make Her Life a Joy And Not a
Many wives are overwhelmed and downright over worked. Maybe she
is feeling stressed with the household chores, the children and
meeting all of your emotional and physical needs. Ask yourself,
what can I do around the house to make her life a bit easier,
especially if she also has a 9 to 5 job. Offer to do the dishes,
pick up the kids from school, and be in charge of preparing a
meal on weekends or any other activity that can lighten her
load. Do not wait for her to ask, be sensitive and proactive.
me, if she is stressed and unhappy, she will not be in the mood
to have sex or show any form of affection.
Show Lots Of Affection
is easy for you to sometimes hold back your affection and
encouragement when you find that you have an unhappy wife.
However, this is the time you need to be even more affectionate.
This is the time she needs all the love and support she can get.
Do not write her off as being selfish. Let her know how much you
love and appreciate her. What special thing have you done for
her lately? Take her some roses, chocolate, take her dancing,
arrange a bubble bath with candles so that she can relax and
Take The Time To Listen
Usually, an unhappy wife is one who is not listened to. She
feels she has to literally tie you to a chair to get you to hear
what she has to say and this can be very frustrating. Some
husbands may say, but I am willing to sit and listen. However,
after closer inspection you realize that they do not know the
difference between hearing and listening. Just sitting there is
not listening. Listening is being able to genuinely respond to
her concerns or being able to remember what she said 5 minutes
Leave Work At Work
many couples allow their job to interfere with their family
life. Sometimes this practice can cause your spouse to feel
neglected or unhappy. This may not be your intention but it
happens. All you talk about is work. Sometimes it is because you
really love what you do and another time it is because you are
just trying to make enough money to support your family. If you
are guilty of this practice take some time this week and
apologize to your wife for neglecting her. Let her know you
realized how much your preoccupation with your work has been
hurting her and that you are going to ensure that she and the
children (if you have any) will now come first. You can add to
this based on your individual situation.
