You've found yourself wondering what husbands want from their wives. Your relationship with your husband is strained at times. You never really know what he's thinking and sometimes you're left imagining that you've let him down or you're not being the kind of wife you wanted to be. He's quiet and he just doesn't seem to be as invested in your marriage as he once was. It's confusing for you and you really want to do whatever you can to change it before it's too late. You're a smart woman and with the right insight you can actually transform your relationship with the man and make him happier than he's ever been. There are a few fundamental things that men want and need from their wives.
When you are thinking about what your husband wants from you honesty is at the very top of your list. You have to be an open book to your husband. He wants to know that he can trust you always and that there's no circumstance in which you'd feel the need to be dishonest with him. If you feel inclined to tell a small white lie, think twice. If your husband ever uncovers your deception it could send your marriage into a fast downward spiral that you'll never recover from.
Your husband also wants to know there isn't a man in the world who comes close to making you as happy as he does. If you talk about your friends' husbands and all the things they do right, your man will feel that he's being judged. No man ever wants to feel that especially in relation to his wife. Compliment your husband often and be genuine about it. Let him see that you're thankful each and every day that you married him. He needs to see that in your eyes and hear it in your words.
He also really needs for you to recognize his individuality and his own personal needs. Men absolutely need to have their own interests and friends and that doesn't stop the day they say their wedding vows. Your husband has to feel it's okay to spend time with his friends without fearing that it will offend you. Encouraging him to make plans with his guy friends is one of the quickest and most effective ways to cement yourself in your husband's heart. An understanding and supportive partner is something that all men long for.
