Without the all important institution of marriage, humanity might be at the verge of extinction. Naturally, men and women are attracted to each other and feel complete when they come together in a union called marriage. Through marriages, families are produced and nurtured. In turn, healthy families make up a healthy society.
Therefore, it goes without saying that marriage is a sacred institution that needs to be taken care of properly. Women are the bedrock of any marriage and even the holy book says that when a man finds a good wife, he has found a good thing. Therefore, a man has an obligation to keep his wife happy in marriage, in order to make the union evergreen.
As the man of the house, you don’t have to bring heaven to earth in order to make your woman happy. In fact, you can easily achieve this through small everyday acts of kindness. You also don’t need a lot of money achieve this. The following are a few easy and affordable acts that will put a permanent smile on your wife’s face.
Hearing your voice when she is alone can create a sense of security in her. Just a simple phone call, while you are away at work or on a trip, can mean a lot to her. It makes her know that you are thinking about her and hence makes feel loved. If she was feeling lonely, the loneliness will suddenly dissipate after the phone call.
If she was feeling sad, a smile might suddenly engulf her face. As much as this might look like a simple act, lack of constant communication in marriage has been found to be the biggest cause many breakups. Regular communication not only builds a strong bond between you and your wife but it also keeps cheerful all the time.
It is understandable that after a long day at work, you may want to spend your evening relaxing at home, while watching your favourite TV program. However, a little sacrifice once in a while can go a long way to improve the health of your marriage. Bear in mind that your wife also has a lot to do during the day, regardless of whether she has a fulltime job or she is a stay-at-home housewife.
Going that extra mind and taking her on an evening coffee date, once in a while, can go a long way to show her how special she is to you. It is not the coffee or any meal you can have out which matters most but the quality time you will spend together. During such dates, you can spare some time to listen to how her day was. Such dates remind you the things that made you fall in love with her in the first place since they bring back the memories of the days when you were still dating before you tied the knot with her.
Most men hardly know what their wives’ hobbies are. Your wife might have been a good fashion designer, a good driver, an athlete or even a wannabe musician before you got married. However, after marriage, you might be too busy chasing your own dreams that you hardly remember her aspirations.
You are actually supposed to be her number one fun in whatever ambitions that she has. You can easily help her to bring out the talent hidden deep down her soul. Supporting her passions makes her feel special and appreciated. For instance, if she is interested in music, hire for her a music coach who can help her to hone her singing skills. If she has a passion for fashion design, encourage her to take short courses on the same. Go ahead and even make applications to potential learning institutions, on her behalf. This will make her feel truly loved.
There are so many precious memories of mutually special occasions that you can celebrate together. Right from your wedding day, your first wedding anniversary, your kids birthdays to your firstborn daughter’s engagement; she would be more than elated to celebrate those nice memories with you.
Another good way to immortalise your special moments together, and make your woman feel that you truly cherish each wonderful moment of your life together, is to decorate your house with photos capturing special occasions. You can ravage through your family album and choose the best photos which capture your past special moments together.
You can then go ahead and get nice photo frames which you will use to strategically hang these photos in the most frequently visited places within your house. This will of course include your bedroom. The photos will always be to your wife an ever-present reminder of your presence even when you are away
They say that a change is always as good as a rest. Going for a modest vacation, as a family, once in a while is obviously one of the best ways to create a change of environment away from home. You don’t have to take the entire family to a dream tourist destination since that might need a good amount of money. However, there are several cost effective vacation plans that you can always afford.
What matters most is not the prestige of the exotic destination where a family goes for vacation together. What is more important though is the quality time your family will spend together away from home. A vacation usually counts as one of the special future memories that you will cherish anytime you look back.
The sights that you will enjoys on your way to the vacation destination, the favourite songs that you will play during such times, the games you will play and the stories that you will tell will always make for me memorable moments that you will remember for a long time to come. Such trips will always obviously bolster the bond between you and your wife, as well as bring the entire family closer. It is also a good way of relieving stress without leaving a huge dent on your bank account.
