Be His Lover… Not His Mother
Our husbands are grown men. His mother raised him. We should not try to tell them what to do or how to live their life, instead we should support them and help them want to be a better person. Love your husband unconditionally… don’t turn into a mother figure.
Be Willing To Lose Some Battles
There are days we all argue. Sometimes for a reason and sometimes there is not a reason. Some battles are not worth the argument. Being a supportive wife also means we have to be willing to lose some battles we face. Being a wife does not mean we always have to be right…. Even if the saying goes “Mrs. Always Right.”
Communication Is Key
Our sweet husband’s cannot read our minds. If you want chocolate… tell him. We cannot get mad at them for something they did not do if we do not properly communicate what we need or want. Communication is always very important to make a marriage stronger. The more you are open and willing to talk the less you will have misunderstandings.
Never Stop Being Your Husband’s Girlfriend
DATE NIGHT!! There is nothing better than dressing up and going on a date with the man you love. My husband and I got married but we still date. We flirt and do silly things to show each other how much we care. Just because we are married doesn’t mean the dating ends.
Protect What You Love
He is your husband. Protect him. Do not give him reasons to doubt how you feel. I try every day to go out of my way to make sure Nick knows how much he means to me. If today were my last day I want him to know I loved him unconditionally and protected our relationship with everything I have.
Put God First
God is necessity. No marriage can reach its full potential until we are willing to “submit to the Lord with all out hearts.” I pray for Nick everyday, sometimes multiple times. God is an essential need for marriages. I think more marriages would last and become stronger if we were all willing to put God first.
Two Is Better Than One
You’re a team. The day you say “I DO” there is no more “I”. We have to be willing to be on the same side, not against each other. The stronger you are as a team the stronger the marriage. My husband and I like to compete at times, but we always make better decisions when we think together.
“There is no challenge strong enough to destroy your marriage as long as you are both willing to stop fighting against each other and start fighting for each other.” –Dave Willis
