10 Great Tips for Wives

  1. Let him know you believe in him. This will empower him to achieve his

     dreams. [One of the things that attracted him to you in the first place

     was that you believed in him. You made him feel like he was more special

     than anyone or anything else. Work to help him see that again.]

  2. Accept your husband for the man he is, instead of wishing you could change

     this or that. [It’s so easy to fall into the trap of looking at what others

     have and not accepting what we have right in front of us. The Lord

     often reminds me to stop concentrating on my spouse’s faults and work

     on my own.] 

  3. Help him be a hero to his kids. Speak well of him and the good things

     that he does.

  4. Appreciate the things he does – like making repairs around the house.

    [Even if he doesn’t do them well – at least he’s making the effort—

    which is more than a lot of husbands will do.]

  5. Let him spend time with the guys doing “guy” things [unless those “guy”

     things compromise the integrity of your marital relationship].

  6. Respect his right to need some space. It doesn’t mean he doesn’t love you. 

  7. Stop asking him to throw out his torn, faded jeans. What you hate about

     them is what he loves about them. [Learn to choose what you argue about

     to those things that really are important.] Don’t make majors out of minors!

  8. Stop criticizing his mother. [This may be difficult for you to do when

     his mother makes life difficult for you to handle. But criticizing his

     mother can make things worse in many ways. “Speak the truth in love”

     and in loving ways to your husband when it concerns his mother to

     improve your relationship. If this doesn’t help, ask the Lord to show

     you how to handle the situation in the godliest, most peaceable way

     possible.]

  9. Be patient with him – he’s a man. Make him feel special – he’s 

     someone who craves your approval.

  10. Keep looking your best – for him … and for yourself.
