“Happy husband, more shoes in the closet”
A successful marriage is one in which both spouses are happy. It’s not always easy to make your husband happy. Still, you can definitely create a harmonious and fulfilling relationship with a bit of effort.
This blog post will discuss tips that will help you make your husband happy and keep your marriage strong!
I’m sure that you’ll find this blog post helpful. It’s based on my personal experience and many other people (I’ve been a nail technician for the past twenty years) who have shared with me their struggles in their marriages.
Before we get into all of those helpful tips, I’d like to mention that I’ve been married for twenty years. And I can tell you from experience; that it’s been quite a journey.
At the beginning of our marriage, we were both young and inexperienced in relationships when things got tough – which they always do at some point during any long-term relationship. We didn’t really know how to talk to each other.
We would just bottle up our feelings and resentments until, eventually, we would explode in a huge argument.
Because I was young and didn’t know how to control my emotions, I wasn’t always an easy person to deal with.
Eventually, we learned how to communicate better, and things started getting a lot easier. And now that we’re more experienced, we’ve been able to work through even the most challenging problems.
So if you want to make your husband happy, start by learning how to communicate with him. You’ll be amazed at the difference it makes!
The first step
I want to talk about communication – and how important it is for your marriage! Communicating regularly helps you understand each other better and prevents misunderstandings.
When you and your husband disagree, always try to talk it out calmly instead of yelling or storming off. You must express your feelings openly and honestly – but do so in a respectful way. Yelling and screaming at each other will only make the situation worse.
You must pay attention when he speaks; otherwise, he’ll feel as if his words are falling on deaf ears and won’t take anything you say seriously.
The second step
I make it a point to ask questions, and clearing up misunderstandings is a fantastic approach to prevent them from becoming greater problems later.
Sometimes we’re so busy talking about our feelings that we forget to ask what’s going on with other people too – which means missing out on a lot of important information!
The third step,
It’s all about being open and honest with each other. If something is bothering you or an argument the night before, don’t be afraid to bring it up so that both parties can work through any issues together.
It will help build trust between partners over time which leads me to my next point:
The fourth step
Don’t keep secrets from your spouse! When people feel like they can’t trust their partner, it creates tension and resentment.
So if you want to make him happy, be transparent with him and let him into your life as much as possible. It will help strengthen your relationship in the long run!
Let’s start with tips.
Ways to make your husband happy:
Tip #1: Be Affectionate
One of the best ways to make your husband happy is by being affectionate with him. Showing physical and emotional intimacy will help strengthen your bond and keep your relationship healthy. Hug him, touch him, and kiss him often-he will definitely appreciate it!
Tip #2: Listen to Him
If you want your husband happy, then listen to him. Many women think that just because they are married and have a family now, their husbands don’t need them anymore, but this is not true!
It’s essential for both spouses in any marriage or relationship to feel heard and understood by each other, so make sure you take the time to listen to what he has to say.
Tip #3: Be Supportive
A happy husband is a supported husband. Offer him your support in both good and bad times; let him know that you are there for him no matter what. It will make him feel appreciated and loved, which are both very important ingredients for a healthy marriage or relationship.
Tip #4: Show Appreciation
Another great way to make your husband happy is by showing him that you appreciate everything he does for you and the family. Tell him often how much his actions mean to you, and if possible, do something special on occasion just because!
Tip #5: Have Fun Together
When was the last time you and your husband had fun together? A happy marriage or relationship is one in which both spouses enjoy spending time with each other. So make an effort to do something different now and then go on a date night at least once a week, watch movies together at home, or play board games.
Tip #6: Don’t Nag Your Husband
Last but not least, don’t nag your husband! You’ll only make him feel bad about himself, and the relationship will suffer if you do this. Learn how to communicate with each other effectively that won’t cause conflict; this is essential for any successful marriage or relationship.
Tip #7: Don’t Take Him For Granted
A happy husband feels appreciated and loved by his wife. So don’t take him for granted because if you do, he will eventually stop doing nice things for you out of resentment! Remember that your spouse is a human being who deserves respect and gratitude just like everyone else!
Tip #8: Don’t Overreact When He Makes A Mistake
It’s normal for people to make mistakes sometimes, so don’t overreact when your husband does the same thing. Instead of getting angry at him or yelling at him all day long, try to talk things out in a calm manner and resolve whatever issue has occurred between both of you.
I used to overreact, and his mistakes were a big deal. But I learned that if you don’t overreact, he will appreciate you more and start doing everything right.😉
Tip #9: Be Flexible
Last but not least, be flexible! Marriage is all about compromise, and if you want to make your husband happy, you need to learn how to be flexible. That means being willing to change your plans or opinion if necessary to make things work for both of you!
Tip #10: Don’t Be Afraid To Show Your Vulnerable Side
It’s okay for men and women to show their vulnerable side once in a while! So if your husband is going through something difficult right now, don’t be afraid to let him know how you feel about it or ask for his help.
What would make him happy and feel strong is asking him how you can help. I know my husband loves it when I do this because he knows that I’m there for him no matter what!
Tip #11: Don’t Forget To Say “I Love You” Often Enough!
A happy husband will want nothing more than hearing those three words from his wife every day! So make sure that you say them often enough and with meaning, and your husband will be a very happy man!
I never let my husband leave the house without knowing I love him.
Tip #12: Don’t Complain About Everything He Does Wrong!
You may be tempted to point out every little thing that your husband does wrong, but this will only make things worse for both of you in the long run. Instead of complaining about what he does wrong all day long, it’s much better to focus on everything he does right!
I used to be guilty of whining about grocery store trips. I’d ask what product I wanted my husband to get, and they’d all be different brands than I typically use. When he returned from a store, the products were other, so I would point out that they were incorrect, which irritated him.
My number one rule now is to say “thank you” and mention one good thing he did as small as grocery shopping.
It’s not always easy to make your husband happy, but you can definitely create a harmonious and fulfilling relationship with a bit of effort.
Tip#13: Make him his favorite breakfast without any special occasion
All husbands love when their wives make them breakfast. It doesn’t have to be a special occasion for you to do this, just randomly surprise him one day with his favorite meal, and he will appreciate it! And who knows, maybe you’ll get lucky, and he’ll return the favor someday soon! 😉
My husband is not a morning person, but I am, so I like to get up before him and make him breakfast on weekdays before he goes to work. I can tell he enjoys it because he always smiles and says “thank you” when he sees the food. Little gestures like that are easy ways to keep him happy.
Tip #14: Bake him his favorite pie
This one is similar to the previous tip but with a dessert twist! If your husband loves pie, then why not bake him his favorite one? He will definitely appreciate your effort, and it might just become a new tradition that you both look forward to each year!
What makes my husband happy is food- especially sweets. He loves all kinds of sweets, so I like to bake his favorite dessert, an apple pie, and it will make his day and make him happy!
Tip #15: Give him a massage
One way to make your husband happy is by giving him a massage. Whether foot rubs or back massages, he will appreciate any physical contact with you!
I can tell when my hubby comes home in a bad mood because he is tired and in pain with his back. I give him a massage and his favorite back rub, he relaxes, and we both enjoy the moment.
Tip #16: Write him love notes and leave them around the house for him to find
A simple way to make your husband smile is by writing little love notes and leaving them all around the house for him to find. He will definitely appreciate your effort, and it will make his day!
My husband is not a romantic type, but he really enjoys the little love notes I leave him from time to time. I usually write it on a Post-it or in his planner/calendar as he checks them regularly throughout the day!
Tip #17: Compliment him often
Who doesn’t like a nice compliment? Compliments are a great way to make someone feel good about themselves, so why not compliment your husband often? He will definitely appreciate the positive reinforcement, and it might help him become even more confident in his abilities!
When men age, we must also remember that they appreciate a pleasant compliment, even from their wives!
Tip #18: Give him a hug and kiss every time you see him
It’s important always to show your husband affection, so make sure that you give him hugs and kisses every chance you get. It will help strengthen the bond between both of you and make your husband feel loved by you! 🙂
Tip #19: Give him some personal space
Although it’s essential to be close with your husband, don’t smother him too much! Make sure that you give him some personal space every once in a while to have some time to himself. It will help prevent both of you from feeling overwhelmed or stressed out!
I can tell he likes his “me” time. I try to give him some space every few days, which seems to help him recharge his batteries.
