Father’s Day is coming soon, and women around the country are searching for that perfect gift for their husband. But, chances are you, as their wife, can give them exactly what he wants for Father’s Day without spending a dime. Because, what husbands really want is to be respected.
It is said that the one thing men really want is respect, and the one thing women really want is to be loved. When a woman respects her husband, she often receives the love she desires. But, respecting your husband can be hard at times. We live in a society that praises independent, strong women, who’s opinions are heard, and at the same times seems to lessen men, their opinions, and their voice. And sometimes our adamant female positions on a subject may be disrespecting our husband.
I know this because I am a stubborn woman, who loves to talk, always has an opinion, and often times thinks my choice is better than that of my husband. In so many small and simple ways I often disrespect the man I love. In turn, I don’t always receive the love and affection, or praise, that I crave from my best friend and spouse.
Respect is an interesting thing. While of course you respect your husband for working (or taking care of the kids, depending on your family’s dynamics), for earning money, for being a good father, and a good husband, it is often their opinion and their needs that they really wanted valued and respected.
Today I am sharing 3 ways to show respect to your husband over on ClarksCondensed.com:
1) Respect Your Husband’s Opinions
2)Respect Your Husband by Doing What He Asks
3)Respect Your Husband’s Need for Affection and Attention.
