What Makes Your Husband Happy in Marriage?
He wants to feel safe
Safety is not just physical. It is also emotional. Anderson explains: “A man likes to know that his wife won’t take advantage of his shortcomings and will keep his insecurities safe while he’s working on them. And a man especially wants to feel like his wife is supportive of him in his challenges and isn’t using his challenges as reasons to walk away.”
He wants to feel wanted
Anderson says that, “Men want a woman who is fiercely independent, who has her own desires, goals, drives and plans how to achieve them. They like a wife who can accomplish her goals on her own (and will) but invites her husband to do things with her because it means more when he’s there. Men want a woman who doesn’t need them but she asks for him to be in her life because she wants him.”
He wants to be your priority
They want to feel that their wife is in tune with them and their needs and not just the kids or their endless to-do list. They like to be romanced a just as much as women do. They like to be taken out on dates or any kind of simple surprise that says, “I thought of you. This reminded me of you. I love you.”
