As a wife, I not only want to be loved by my husband but to also feel cherished. I love it when my husband compliments, touches, and shows me affection in various ways.
Every wife loves it when her husband pays attention to her and loves to hear her husband say these words:
“You look amazing!” – A wife needs to be reminded that her husband still finds her beautiful. Let her know that you still notice her beauty.
“I’ll make the arrangements.” – Planning a date night, getaway or a surprise night out lets your wife know that you want to spend quality time with her. Don’t expect her to always make the plans.
“I appreciate everything you do.” – Make sure she knows that you recognize all the efforts and work she puts into your marriage, children, and home.
“I’m listening.” – When she is frustrated, listen and encourage her. Offer her your advice and let her know that she has your support.
“Where would I be without you?” – Communicate to your wife about the impact she has on your life. Point out her strengths and how they have had a positive impact on your marriage.
“Pray with me.” – Keeping Christ at the center of your marriage is the foundation for a successful union. Connect through prayer and open up about the battles you are both facing.
“I love you.” – Let your wife know that you love her for who she is and not just for what she does. Value her for her wifely efforts and duties. Make sure she knows that you desire her and her alone.
Proverbs 31:28b-29 (ESV)
Her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.”
