The art of understanding your wife

The art of understanding your wife

We all know that women think differently, so it pays to understand their subtle ways.

If you do you’re on your way to a happy and healthy relationship.

You’ve just been married and are looking forward to a happily married life with your wife. A happy marriage however does not happen magically, it calls for a lot of understanding and effort. Here are a few great tips to get you going.

Women love to talk

Talking is part of every woman’s DNA. For women, talking is not just about expressing themselves, it’s also about bonding with each other. Whether it’s just buying a dress or discussing a cousin’s wedding, a woman likes to get into descriptions and discuss in detail. Listen to her and you will instantly endear yourself to her.

Women communicate differently

Everything a woman says is not what she really means, in fact sometimes both can be dramatically different. When your wife asks you, “Would you like to go for this movie next weekend”, don’t get confused, she’s not asking you, she’s telling you she’d like to go. You might also ask her how she feels after a particular situation, she may tell you she’s “okay” she may not be. Don’t go by just her words, look at her emotions and body language and understand your wife.

Appreciate your wife

In the daily routine, you wife would do a million little things for you. Make sure you take enough time to appreciate her. When she has dressed up to go out, she expects you to notice and compliment her. If she has taken the effort to cook a special meal for you, she expects acknowledgement, do let her know how delicious it was. Watch her light up with happiness.

Remember special days

A common complaint that wives have is that their husbands forget special days like birthdays and anniversaries. Set a reminder for your wife’s birthday, your wedding anniversary (remembering her parents’ wedding anniversary will make her feel very loved) and other days special for the two of you. Pamper her on these days with gifts, she will cherish these moments forever.

Women remember everything you said

Women have a powerful memory that records every little thing, even the words you carelessly uttered without thinking. You may have forgotten what you said about your wife’s sister but she’ll never forget. Keep your relationship healthy and happy; be careful with what you say.

Avoid comparisons

Do not compare your wife’s cooking with your mother’s cooking or her other skills with other women. If you praise them, she could get hurt. She wants to be the best in your eyes.

Wives think they know what’s best for you

When your life lovingly picks a shirt for you to wear at work or advises you on finances, sometimes you might appreciate your wife’s concern and sometimes you may not. However, her concern is born out of love for you, so don’t negate it. Listen to her, it’s her way of showing she cares for you.

Keeping these little tips in mind can truly make your marriage a beautiful and fragrant bed of roses.
