101 Ways To Tell Your Husband, "I Love You"

Pick 5 A Day And Watch Your Relationship Blossom!

As we enter into marriage, we may wonder how we ever lived life without our mate. We're focused on each other, and that makes us close. However, the longer we're married, our focus tends to turn to jobs, bills, or children and less on each other. Unfortunately, this causes many marriages to turn cold and some eventually die. Have you ever wondered how people stay married for 30, 40, or more years? Do you want your marriage to last a lifetime? The key is to stay focused on your mate. Here are some ways for you to show your husband your love. Choose at least five every day and watch your marriage blossom into a wonderful relationship!

  1. TEXT HIM A LOVE MESSAGE Send him a romantic text message on his cell. Make sure it's sweet but spicy!
  2. DO ONE OF HIS CHORES FOR HIM Pick a chore that he dreads, such as mowing the lawn, and do it for him. Watch him as he sighs with relief.
  3. START A HOBBY TOGETHER Sharing a hobby together such as horse back riding, completing a home improvement project, or selling on eBay can help keep you close.
  4. PLAY A GAME TOGETHER Have fun doing things together such as playing board games, riding bumper boats, or playing miniature golf. Just remember, if he should get the best of you, don't tackle him unless you're laughing!
  5. SHOW APPRECIATION When your husband works hard, or does something for you, let him know you appreciate him.
  6. MAKE YOUR HOME HIS REFUGE Let your home be a haven were your husband can retreat from the stresses of life. Do your best to make it a pleasant environment.
  7. LAUGH AT HIS ANTICS Don't let the little things that your husband does get on your nerves. If you think about it, some of these things may have been what attracted you to him! He just wouldn't be the same if he didn't do these things.
  8. PRAY FOR HIM Ask God to give him that extra boost to make everything OK. Let your husband hear you pray too. This will let him know that when you can't make it right, you'll ask someone who can.
  9. CHECK BEFORE THROWING THINGS AWAY If your husband has some things that seem useless to you, don't trash them until you've made sure he doesn't need them.
  10. CHECK BEFORE REARRANGING Ask your husband if it's OK before you move or straighten things on his desk or work area. If he has things where it's easy to find, it might make it chaotic if it's moved.
  11. TAKE A WALK OR A HIKE TOGETHER Let nature set the mood for romance! Talk, listen, and hold hands.
  12. DON'T EXPECT HIM TO READ YOUR MIND If there is something you want your husband to know about you, tell him. Don't expect him to just know what you're thinking or what you need.
  13. LAUGH TOGETHER Forget your adults for awhile, and just act silly together. Also, if something should go awry, try to find some humor in it somewhere. This will also reduce the stress of the situation.
  14. RESIST THE URGE TO SNOOP Don't sneak around and check up on your husband, if you want to know something, ask him to his face.
  15. GIVE HIM A ROMANTIC CARDDon't wait for a special occasion to give him a card. Find the most romantic card you can find and leave it in his car. Don't forget to add your own personal message! Maybe you'll even make him nervous, wondering if he forgot an anniversary!
  16. PACK HIS FAVORITE TREAT Buy his favorite candy bar or other treat, and pack it in his lunch with a love note.
  17. TAKE A BUBBLE BATH TOGETHER This is self-explanatory.
  18. E-MAIL HIM AN INVITATION FOR ROMANCE Invite him on a rendezvous with you! Build his anticipation, then tell him to RSVP!
  19. TAKE HIM TO TEST DRIVE HIS DREAM CAR Drive him to a car lot some Saturday, and let him test drive the car of his dreams - even though you probably won't buy it.
  20. LET HIM BUY THAT TOY Permit him to buy that toy he's been wanting so badly. Better yet, put some of your own things off, save the money and buy it for him yourself!
  21. TALK ABOUT THE FUTURE The future isn't as far away as it seems sometimes. Talk about where you'd like to be when you're married 50 years, and work on making those dreams happen.
  22. GIVE HIM THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT Don't jump to conclusions if your husband has said or done something questionable. Give him the chance to explain before you pass judgement.
  23. LET HIM BE THE MAN OF THE HOUSE Although this is growing increasingly unpopular, it does still work. Just because your husband is in charge of the household doesn't mean that you can't share your opinions, it just means he's captain of the team.
  24. SAY, "I'M SORRY" Although you may not want to admit it, there will be times when you're in the wrong. Maybe you've said something hurtful or done something insensitive. Never have too much pride to tell him you're sorry.
  25. KEEP YOUR PROMISES If you told your husband you'd do something, make sure that you follow through.
  26. RUB HIS FEET Steer him to the recliner and pull off his shoes. Rub his feet for at least 20 minutes. It has been told that this may even improve his health!
  27. MAKE YOUR BEDROOM A LOVER'S PARADISE Turn your ordinary bedroom into any lover's dream without a lot of expense. Remove clutter and anything that doesn't belong, and replace it with scented candles and fresh flowers. Hang pretty curtains and find some comfy bedding. Place mirrors to reflect candlelight, and misting fountains for a romantic effect.
  28. WRITE A NOTE ON THE STEAMED-UP BATHROOM MIRROR While your husband is showering, sneak in and write, "I love you" on the steamed-up bathroom mirror. This will steam him up as well, especially if you seal it with your lip prints!
  29. PUT LOVE IN HIS SUDS I'm talking about a bar of soap! Scratch "I love you" into his soap so he'll find it the next time he showers. (You may not want to seal this note with your lip prints, though).
  30. GIVE HIM A MASSAGE Go buy some sweet smelling oils and turn your bedroom into a spa! Give your husband a full body massage and work out those aching muscles.
  31. PLAY ROMANTIC MUSIC Keep a good deal of romantic music on hand in your bedroom to help set the mood for romance.
  32. PUT A SIGN IN YOUR YARDPlace a sign in your yard such as, "THE WORLD'S GREATEST HUSBAND LIVES HERE." Let everyone know how special your husband is to you.
  33. LET BYGONES BE BYGONES If your husband has done or said something to hurt you, forgive him. Don't keep bringing up the past every time you get into a disagreement, especially if he has shown remorse.
  34. BE HONEST Don't hide things from your husband. Be open and transparent. This will help him trust you more.
  35. BRAG ON HIM IN FRONT OF HIS FRIENDS Men naturally rely on boost in their ego now and then in order to stay confident. Let him hear you tell others about the great things he says and does.
  36. CLEAN HIS CAR FOR HIM Surprise him by giving his car a good detailed cleaning. If you don't want to tackle it yourself, have it professionally done.
  37. PUT HIS PICTURE IN WALLPAPER Let him know that you still think he's a gorgeous hunk by putting his picture on your computer desktop!
  38. BUY A BUMPER STICKER Put a "I Love My Husband" bumper sticker on your car.
  39. WORSHIP TOGETHER The couple who prays together, stays together. These will be very tender and special moments shared between the two of you, as well as important.
  40. EAT BY CANDLELIGHT Cook his favorite meal and light the candles. Take time to focus on each other, and to look into each others eyes.
  41. BE DEVOTED TO HIM One of the greatest gifts that you could ever give your husband is your true faithfulness. This includes physically, emotionally, and in your thoughts. If you're struggling with temptation, nip it in the bud. Tell him your feelings in a sensitive and loving way. Don't bottle anything up, this is asking for disaster.
  42. RUN YOUR FINGERS THROUGH HIS HAIR Or massage his temples if he doesn't have any. Do this while he relaxes. Remember, your touch is important to him.
  43. DON'T CONTRADICT HIM IN FRONT OF OTHERS This will only embarrass him and cause people to lose respect. This is especially important if you have children.
  44. DON'T CRITICIZE HIM IN FRONT OF OTHERS If you feel that your husband needs a bit of constructive criticism, make sure it's just that - constructive. Don't offer it at all unless it's in a loving way, and in private. Being criticized in front of others lowers self esteem and causes hurt feelings.
  45. DEFEND HIM Don't let others disrespect your husband. Even just a snide comment can hurt. Stick up for him. Don't let someone drive into the ground the most important person in your life.
  46. LOVE YOURSELF Many times we as women hold back on our husbands because of our own insecurities. Learn to let it go. The things that we're so worried about, usually don't even bother him. What bothers him is when we hold back. Remember, although this may sound strange, you can't really love someone until you love yourself.
  47. PAMPER HIM WHEN HE'S SICK Men love to be pampered, especially when they're sick. Make sure everything is comfortable and that he has his "special soup."
  48. LOOK HIM IN THE EYES Look your husband straight in the eyes when he talks to you. Not only will this show that you're interested in what he has to say, but there is something about looking straight into his eyes that will give you butterflies.
  49. DISPLAY YOUR WEDDING PHOTOS Don't tuck away your wedding photos after you've been married awhile, keep them on display. This will be a great reminder of how your love was at the beginning, and how much it has grown.
  50. DISPLAY YOUR MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE Frame the sacred document of your marriage. This will be a wonderful and constant reminder that your love is sealed, and you really do belong to each other.
  51. TRUST HIM Too many times wives just sit around and wait for their husbands to do something wrong. Cut him some slack and dare to believe in him.
  52. HAVE YOUR PHOTO MADE TOGETHER You may have done this when you were dating, but why not now? Get a current shot to place on the bedroom dresser or the desk at work.
  53. LET HIM WIN It is inevitable, even in healthy marriages, to argue occasionally. What would it really hurt to just let him win? At least you wouldn't be arguing.
  54. DON'T GO TO BED MAD Although you've probably heard this one for years, and it may have been your grandmother's first marriage advice to you, it is still true. Going to bed hurt or angry keeps feelings under the surface. When you wake up you don't want to continue the argument, so you you hold in your frustrations and they begin to mount. It's best to talk everything out, and fall asleep in each other's arms.
  55. DON'T COMPARE HIM Don't EVER, EVER compare your husband to another man - not even your father. Your husband is his own person and unique in his own ways. Love him for it.
  56. GREET HIM AT THE DOOR Don't wait for your husband to say, "Honey, I'm home!" Watch for him, and greet him at the door with a hug and kiss.
  57. MEND HIS CLOTHES Buy a sewing kit and repair those sock holes! Break down and sew on his popped-off buttons. This may increase his wardrobe by 20%!
  58. TALK IN CODE Pick a code word for something that only the two of you know the meaning for and say it openly in public. You'll have your own inside joke. This will help keep you close.
  59. HAVE A WRESTLING MATCH This will get you both laughing, and the closeness will be fun!
  60. WAKE HIM UP WITH KISSES Make his whole day go better by waking him up with kisses. He may even keep you there through breakfast!
  61. HELP HIM SHAVE This is a fun way to be close and to get you both laughing! (As long as your careful, that is).
  62. DEDICATE A SONG TO HIM Did you have a song that was "your song" while you were dating? Call up your local radio station and request it, and have them to dedicate it to your hubby!
  63. MAKE HIM A HEART-SHAPED BREAKFAST Make heart-shaped pancakes and heart-shaped toast! Trim little pads of butter into heart shapes as well.
  64. DON'T TRY TO BE HIS MOM Remember you are his wife, not his mother. Don't jump him every time he leaves something on the floor or his clothes don't match. It's OK to lovingly remind him, occasionally, but don't nag him.
  65. GRAB A KISS WHILE YOU WAIT Kiss your husband while you're waiting at the stoplight or in the food drive-through. Your wait won't seem near as long, and you may wish it could last a littler longer!
  66. FLIRT WITH HIM Just because you've snagged him, don't stop flirting! Wink at him, squeeze his muscles and, WHOOOO, or now that your married, it's not at all out of line to be a little bolder in your purpose.
  67. GO ON A LONG DRIVE Go for a long drive and sight see. This is an excellent chance to talk or just be in each other's company. The way gas prices are, you'd almost have to love someone in order to take a long drive. If you don't want to spend the gas, drive to a pretty park or lake and just stop and soak up the scenery while you talk and hold hands.
  68. BE HIS BEST FRIEND Let him feel confident that you'll always be there when needs to talk, to laugh, or even cry. Let him be free to be himself at all times and stick with him through the thick and thin.
  69. EAT AN ICE CREAM CONE TOGETHER Buy one, large cone, and eat it together at the same time. You may miss the cone, and touch his lips, which will even be sweeter!
  70. CHERISH THE SMALL THINGS Concentrate on the way he walks, the way he talks, his smile, or the way he says your name. These are really more important than you think, and no one can do it quite like him.
  71. HELP HIM WITH HIS CLOTHES Ask him to let you help with the buttoning or unbuttoning of his clothes as he's dressing or undressing. Caress him gently as you're doing it.
  72. KEEP YOURSELF ATTRACTIVE It's easy to fall into a "housewife" mode and just walk around in "cleaning clothes" with your hair twisted into a mess. That's OK while you're actually cleaning, but try to be more presentable by the time your husband sees you. Bathe, put on clean clothes and a dab of perfume, and set your hair nice.
  73. DON'T PUSH THE BUDGET It is important to learn to live within your means. If you can't afford certain things, don't buy them. Financial stress is very hard on marriages.
  74. DON'T COMPLAIN Don't complain about your standard of living or whine about the things that you don't have. If your husband is doing his best to provide for you, make the best with what you have. If you complain, this makes him feel that he is not a good provider, and this is a great blow to his self esteem.
  75. HAVE A PILLOW FIGHT If you must fight with your husband, do it with pillows! Make sure nothing is around that can break, then go into battle! See how long you can go without laughing.
  76. LOOK OUT FOR HIS HEALTH Encourage your husband to get plenty of sleep and exercise. Try to get him to keep medical and dental appointments. Cook healthy meals, and give him nutritional supplements.
  77. BUY HIM SOME SEXY BOXERS Buy several pairs of sexy shorts for him! Try silky, colorful, and glow in the dark! Make sure you tell him what a hunk he is while he's wearing them!
  78. WEAR THE LINGERIE HE LOVES Some wives love it, some dread it, but just make sure you wear it!
  79. DARE TO BE BOLD Too often, wives wait for their husbands to make the first move in the bedroom. Try showing little aggression yourself once in a while. This will majorly ignite your husband's passion, and the fireworks will begin!
  80. DON'T DEPRIVE HIM Husbands need sex probably more than wives need hugs and compliments. This is one of the main ways he feels loved. Naturally, there will be sometimes you don't feel like it. But even then, if you just give in, you will before it's over.
  81. SPLURGE OCCASIONALLY Although money is a precious commodity to many couples, try to find a way to splurge on something now and then. If you have children, find someone to care for them and get away for the weekend. If you can't afford a trip, find a hotel in or near your hometown with a jacuzzi. If it's still too costly, buy something that you both would enjoy, like a new CD.
  82. WORK ON YOUR WAYS It's easy to see and point out flaws in your husband, but if you're honest, you'll realize that you haven't earned a halo yet. Try to work on your own shortcomings and make yourself a better person.
  83. DON'T BE A PESSIMIST Try not to focus too much on the negative. Keep a positive outlook in your marriage.
  84. DON'T RUB IT IN IF YOU'RE RIGHT If you've disagreed on something and it turns out that you were right, don't gloat about it and throw it in his face.
  85. WASH EACH OTHERS HAIR Jump in the shower and suds up! Watch the water and soap trickle down his face as you wash his hair.
  86. EXAMINE HIS FEATURES Take a moment to delight in your husband's features. The shape of his nose, the set of his eyes. If he catches you staring, wink at him.
  87. SEEK HIS ADVICE Ask for your husband's input and advice on anything from children to what he might like to eat. This will let him know he's needed and that his thoughts are important.
  88. KEEP TIDY Keep things neat and tidy around the house. Decorate and make things look comfortable and welcoming.
  89. TALK ABOUT HIS INTERESTS Bring up a subject that interests him and listen to him talk. Even if the subject doesn't interest you, enjoy watching him as he gets stirred up over the topic.
  90. SHOP FOR HIM When you run to the store, see if there is something that you should pick up for him. This could save him a lot of time or keep him from missing a lunch break.
  91. KIDNAP HIM Plan a special evening, make all the arrangements, then show up at his job just as he gets off work. Tell him to get in the car and no questions. (Make sure you smile, so he don't get alarmed). Whisk him away for a fun-filled evening, then return to get his car later.
  92. RAKE LEAVES TOGETHER Go to your back yard and rake up a pile of leaves. Before you bag them up, play in them together.
  93. DON'T LIVE IN A FANTASY WORLD If you can't read a novel without getting depressed over your love life, throw them away. Many books or movies can portray romance in very unrealistic ways. True love and romance is what he is already doing -providing for you and loving you unconditionally.
  94. GO CAMPING TOGETHER Find a good camp site and pitch a tent! Buy a two person sleeping bag.
  95. DON'T TALK HIS LEG OFF IF HE'S TIRED If your husband is tired and you need to talk to him, go straight to the bottom line and spare the details.
  96. SLOW DANCE IN YOUR BEDROOM Plug in some flashing lights and turn on some romantic music and start slow dancing. (Clothes optional).
  97. PLAY HIDE AND GO SEEK IN YOUR NIGHTIES Put on your sexiest negligee and challenge him to a game of hide and go seek. He'll say, "Ready or not, here I come!"
  98. MAKE LOVE UNDER THE STARS Find a secluded place and throw out a sleeping bag. Make love by the moonlight as you gaze at the stars.
  99. SIT IN FRONT OF A FIRE TOGETHER Snuggle up together in front of the fireplace and make out. If you don't have a fireplace, consider buying an electric one, these look realistic, and are still romantic.
  100. DOTE ON HIM Pick a night and wait on him hand and foot. Draw him a bath, fix his plate for him, and anything else that you can dream up!
  101. JUST SAY IT Make it a point to say the words I love you every single day, and mean it.

Blessed Mommy has a blessed husband! I've always marveled at God's instruction to put Him first, then your spouse (not yourself)... because if each of you does that, each of you will have your needs met above and beyond anything you ever could have done for yourself! I love how you treat your husband.

And needs include delighting the other... and the many, many little considerations and kindnesses.

It's true, too, that "foreplay" starts the minute you open your eyes in the morning. How you speak to each other, smile, patiently wait or comfort... kindnesses, little thoughtful things...

I also like to paraphrase Antoine de Saint Exupery who said, "Love consists not in gazing in each other's eyes, but in looking outward in the same direction." The best version: "...eyes, but in looking outward in the same direction toward God... and as you each focus on the one thing, on Him, He draws you ever closer together, as He is the peak of the triangle with each of you in on the base in perfect harmony and unity."

This is a wonderful list and so true!

Great ideas for keeping a healthy relationship blooming. Couples need all the help they can get nowadays. I know I will get in trouble for this comment but I believe feminism definitely caused problems with the dynamics of relationships. Although I am a fiercely independent woman I truly believe that a man needs to be needed. It's in their genetic makeup. They are programmed to take the lead and so your comment about "letting them be the man of the house" is right on. Women can take the lead in business and their careers (and they should!) But when it comes to relationships men like to be the protectors.

The happiest couples I've seen are the ones where the man truly knows he's needed and the woman relaxes and allows him to shower her with his devotion. It's a difficult concept for a lot of modern women to capitulate to. Too many equate needing someone (especially a man) with being weak. Which of course is simply not true. So kudos on a great list! It will surely keep the homes fires sizzling for years to come.

Okay, Blessedmom - you have to put this into book form. It would make a wonderful little books - the square ones which focus on simple but profound topics like: 1001 simple pleasures. One for men and one for women - would be excellent. Then we can all have them on our coffee tables, or sneak them into stockings come next Christmas.

Brilliant.

Thanks, Soyelude, for your kind words and comments. What you said is very true - if people would just follow God's plan for the marriage relationship (both partners must do this), then divorce would be extinct.

BlessedMommy -

Wonderful 'honeydo' List!

For Valentine's Day, I have decided to take this list, as well as the one on the HubPages made up for wives... I will print and frame these separately, for my husband and I. I have three daughters who are also married, so I will do the same for them as well.

And perhaps at the top, put a scripture from the teachings of Paul on it.

It has been said, that the greatest gift that parents can give to their children - is for their children to KNOW that they love one another.

And in particular, there is something very powerful when the children SEE the love a father has, for their mother.

Love it!

Good hub....My boyfriend and I text each other everyday and when we are apart for a few days, we make sure that we text each other that we miss each other and love each other...I also like the one about not going to bed mad, I think that is important. We also make a point of giving each other a kiss goodbye in the morning as well as saying I love you.

just one more that you can add on. It also increases the relationship if you allow him to get away for a weekend. Encourage him, perhaps once a month, to take his buds out for a relaxing weekend at the lake. sometimes he just needs to get away, encourage it!

Wow Blessedmommy, great hub and from all the responses, it's clear God is really moving through this! PTL! Like Melissa Lynn, my husband and I recently grew together again through materials from the 5 love languages as well as materials from Jeff and Shanti Feldhahn. I agree you should publish your own book! "Love in His Suds," "Worlds Greatest Husband Lives Here" sign, Wrestling Matches and Pillow Fights are all new tips I will have to put into practice. The massages and foot rubs definitely speak love to him (as does any form of sex!). By the way my mom is in her 60's now and I know one of the reasons she'd resisted Christianity and the Bible was because of the misconception that sex is only for procreation....I think w/ what you have here, it very clearly indicates that not to be the case! Bravo for dispelling that myth as well as providing so many practical tips for how to love our husbands which = a happy marriage!

Tamara 8 years ago

My husband is in the Army and is home for short periods. I want to make him feel all the "extra" love and warmth that he isn't able to "feel or see" while he is away so I have decided to make a list to print out that is FULL of great ideas to do one or many of them a day for my beloved. I have found this web-site to be very helpful. I do do one thing that my husband loves and actually gets sad if I haven't done it in a few days that I didn't see on this web-site. I cut a piece of plain white paper into a buissness card size and write COUPON, good for one free ______. Then I take clear tape and tape the front and back to make it hold up in his wallet for as long as he needs. He gets to stick them in his wallet and use them whenever he wants. I leave them eveywhere, ex: taped on his shampoo, in his work pants pocket, in his book where his book-marker is, exc.... He loves it and shows all of his friends and when he finds one it is sooo cute because he comes running to find me to tell me he found another one and I ALWAYS get a great BIG kiss. Totally worth the whole 10 minutes out of my day to see him sooo excited from something "I" did for him. You really feel the love with the true, genuine, happy smile you both share looking at each other for that brife moment.

MissingHim 8 years ago

Wow, excellent list and oh, so true. I wish I had found this list a long time ago AND taken it seriously. Especially #23. I failed MISERABLY at that one. I was so scared he wouldn't take that honor and responsibility and use it wisely, that I took it away from him. God's design for marriage is that the husband be the leader of the household and I can see now that that was my main contribution to the demise of our marriage. Here I am, almost 10 months after he left, praying for him like I should have been doing all the years we were married, praying that God will bring him home. I miss him so much.

Please ladies, take this seriously. I agree completely with the previous poster that this is a very important aspect of a healthy marriage. Marriage is an institution of God and God tells us clearly the roles of the man and woman in marriage. Let them be the captain. Many of the others I failed at as well, but had I taken just that ONE seriously, the others would have fallen into place.

Enjoy passionate sex with him often. If you want to show love for your husband, become his erotic lover. But your suggestions for kissing and "little peeks" make me think that you are trying to imply this anyway. Men often feel deeply loved when they have a truly sexual and erotic relationship with their wife.

Emily,

You and your husband need professional counseling and the sooner the better. Check with local churches in your area or the yellow pages in your phone book. Pray that God will lead you to the right person to counsel with. Try to get your husband to go with you, but if he won't join you, go anyway. Fight for your marriage...IT IS WORTH IT.

Praying for you,

blessedmommy

Someguy 7 years ago

Hello,

I Need a pice of advice.

We are having problem in our marriage. I loved my wife dearly. After we got married within a few months I realized that it was not what I was dreamed it to be. I did not feel like I was that important for my wife. Initially I thout may be it would get better becouse this was our first marriage for both of us. My wife is normally a person of great moral values and a very mart person. We both have PhDs. However I noticed that she would admire other handsome man. This is tatally abnormal to me. if by some odd means it is normal, why she started tell me also that how handsome a guy we met somewhere was. To give you a sense. One day we went to show organized by the company I worked for. There were a lot of people I knew and we talked to a few of them. After the show we walked home. It was a very nice summer night and we did not take the car so that we would enjoy the walk back home. All the way home she went on an on how handsome and beatiful one of the guy was. I was very shocked and upset obout it but did not really know how to react-we were only married for 6 months. I did not say anything ant tried to end the conversation by adding yeah he is a nice guy. I hid my felings so well probably that this kind of stuff happened at least for 5-8 different guys afterwords. In one case it was about a friend of mine who I knew for a very long time but my wife met recently at the time. She repeatedly told me how handsome he was and how his girlfriend was not good enough for him. She was basically jealous, otherwise why would one care who is paring with who. we were not that close friends. Basically whenever she sow someone hansome this would repeat. God forbid if we invite someone over and the guest happens to be one of the guys she thinks as handsome. She would turn into this perfect wife and clean and coook variety of foods. (I have to say though, she is morally very strong person and I can safely say that she would not do any kind of phsical cheeting- I hope I am write.) This went about two years that I did not reacted at all. One day we went to bed and she started for a different guy. That was the last drip for me and I went off and told her that what she was doing was not normal and we ended having a big fight. Of course she kept telling me how thoughtless she was being. Although I did not say anything during that two year, period her commends about other guys really bothered me and I felt like tied up or lost selfesteme or something or got mad whatever the reason is I distaned myself from her for which sometims she would complain. Our marriage is basically almost very dull and no romance since then. This is because of me since I still can not get over it. It bothers me that why she would marry me if she thought I was not handsome. I am fine how I look but what your wife thinks of you is important I guess. It has been 10 years we are merried and have kids. Beside these she does not clean, she never puts any afford to create a worm home. She thinks that she does not have to to clean or cook. She yels all the time and does not think that these are her kids. She loves them very much but does not take the mother role. We both work so I don't expect or to take responsibility of everything but the lack of any afford to do anything somehow tells me that she basically feels like she is trapped in this marrige. I see woman who take care of their husband. I would not want that but would not be a woman at least a little bit considerate for her husband? We live like collage roommates, nobody has resposibility for each other. She would not care if I have no clothes to wear the next day, or may be I am sick that I may not prepare food. Even if she decides to clean one day she would not move a glass from the table if she knows that I left it there. I do most of the cleaning. So the relationship being this way, I don't buy her flowers, I don't tell her I love her, etc. She makes attempts now to fix our relationship but I am the one who is keeping the distance. With all the signs that indicate her lack of love and affection for me I feel like I have to pretent to respond her. I just cant do that although I tried.What I don't understand is that although we had numerous talks about this and she still tels me she does not understand why I behave this way.

I thought, since you are women, you could help me to understand if she cares about me. if I ask her she will say yes. Don't want to go to therapy-she did not ask anyway-, and don't want to get a divorce because of kids. By the way we have no finncial problem. We have very good jobs and doing really good financially-- if you think that would be a factor. Mine is just a curiousity becouse I feel like I don't want our relationship to get better becouse I am mad at her. This is may be partly due to the fact that although I let her now my concerns she did nothing to reassure me that she cared about me. Well she said it verbally.

wishing you best


blessedmommy profile image

blessedmommy 7 years ago from Oklahoma City Metro, Oklahoma Author

Someguy: I will say here and now that I am NOT a professional marriage counselor and I do not intend to replace therapy. Even though you are not wanting to see a counselor, by everything you've told me it would be a very wise choice. It seems to me that you and your wife have communication issues and have never communicated well. You never should have hid your feelings from her in the beginning...this caused your wife to believe that her behavior was acceptable to you. And with you keeping your distance from her she probably feels unloved by you and it sounds like that she is not communicating this to you very well either.

It is my guess that you both love each other but are trapped by this wall of lack of communication. You need to learn how to work through these issues that have been building your entire marriage but if you attempt this alone it may lead to arguing and higher walls between you. Please consider seeing a therapist who can walk you through the steps that you're needing to take to resolve these issues. You are not saying that you have failed in your marriage by doing this but rather that your marriage is important and worth fighting for.

Also your wife may be going through depression. Many times when she neglects things in her life such as her home and family it is because of unresolved feelings. This neglect is one of the first tell-tale signs. If this is true a therapist may be able to recognize it and then your wife can see a doctor and get medication to help her get back on track as you're working through this. Many smart and intelligent people have used medication temporarily to help them get back their focus.

Best Regards,

blessedmommy

lovelyshanny2000 7 years ago

blessed mommy very good list my husband and I are high school sweet hearts we've been togethor for eight years now, and out of the eight we've been married on paper two. I am 23 years of age and he is 25 we have two beautiful children one boy one girl whom we love very much. I'm glad I found this article because I was beginning to think that my smart remarks and relentless arguments were gonna cause my husband and I to end. We've been through a lot, yet I see know from your list that I've been selfish. I love my man with every ounce of my being, which is why I will do all of this list for as long as he allows me to . Oh and to some guy, I'm sorry that your marriage took that plunge, but from what you wrote your wife was telling you something in the beginning, you just didn't speak up. When you let her down by not expressing your thoughts she saw you in a different light, maybe it's not to late to step up and be that man that she desires, open your mouth let your heart speak to your wife. Your children need it you need it, and she may also need this. Talk to the woman you married and honestly try and find the reason why you and her decided to become one. If it doesn't work out that love is there anymore, then be friends for the sake of the children. I wish you luck, and true happiness.

Hello Blessed Mommy,

Thanks for this inspiration. It got me thinking and I wrote about the 101 Ways to Tell Your Kids 'I Love You'. (http://www.home-is-fun.com/index.php?post/2009/02/101-Ways-to-Love-Your-Kids) these 101 ideas sound so easy, but it really is work to get them down. After a rush of inspiration I thought I was close to the end and realized I had "only" reached 67! Well, there are 101 ways now, and thanks to your inspiration.

I have also worked on decluttering our bedroom. Yes, it should be a play room...!

May your love with your hubby keep growing.


linda 7 years ago

Thank you for all those good point for all wife.

But , i have face this 2 times already ie whenever my husband get very angry to me,(not my mistake ) i always have to say sorry to him . He surpose to say sorry , hug & kiss me. He will not admit his mistake ...... All man has big ego how to deal with it.


opinionatednewageman 7 years ago

I'm sorry, but I can't agree with everything on this list.

I believe a marriage should be more of a partnership, but how can it be if he's the head of the house, and you have to make everything special and stress free for him?

I'm not saying argue all the time, but women have stresses as much as men and if you can't communicate them - what kind of marriage is that?

Some of these are a plus, but some are naivity of women pretending their marriage is an honest and happy one.

I'm not married yet, but the woman I have is grade A. I go to work, and sometimes she makes me a really good lunch. I'm always so pleased when she happens to show up and we eat together or she slips a piece of pie into the lunch.

When I get home from work, she's pretty tired from all she's done, as am I.

I usually come home, we eat dinner that she's made, I rub on her back some nights ( she suffers from chronic pain) and then we cuddle and talk about the day. Sometimes, we watch a flick or go out.

We talk every disagreement out. We spend our weekends together. Saturday, we do whatever we want. Sunday, we go to church together.

The whole point is: Not everyone has to be a Stepford Wife to make her man happy. Mine does just fine for me.


blessedmommy profile image

blessedmommy 7 years ago from Oklahoma City Metro, Oklahoma Author

opinionatednewageman:

You obviously missed the point. Marriage IS a partnership and couples should not just try to please each other but to LOVE each other. When you truly love someone it is not a chore to please them.

I'm not a perfect wife and my husband is not perfect. But we are in love. I was never implying that couples HAD to be perfect.

I was also wondering where I ever said not to communicate about stresses? I didn't. I made several references to good communication in the above tips. Communication is one of the top keys to a successful marriage.

You also talked about the ways that your wife (on yeah, you're not married) does things to please you and how it makes you happy. Wasn't this MY point?

I am planning my wedding and started a hub for it. I've asked people to vote on what they like best and I add a new element each week. judging by your hub I think you could help me a lot. right now it is bridesmaids dresses and is soon to be changed to bouquets. I would greatly appreciate it if you could stop by and take a look as well as vote on the dress and my page.

lots of love--nina

Some of the suggestions are good but I don't agree with (80) DON'T DEPRIVE HIM Husbands need sex probably more than wives need hugs and compliments. This is one of the main ways he feels loved. Naturally, there will be sometimes you don't feel like it. But even then, if you just give in, you will before it's over." Sorry but having sex with him when you're not even in the mood, just because you know he wants it, is wrong. IMP you should only have sex when you BOTH want it - makes it more special and meaningful.

This is a great list and how i want to treat my husband. I know it will be extremely hard...it is hard now to have just a boyfriend. It will take lots of work

blessedmommy 7 years ago from Oklahoma City Metro, Oklahoma Author

pyxi: My point...don't "DEPRIVE" him. It's okay to say no occasionally but don't let it become a habit or it will become a wedge in your marriage. Many wives have failed to meet their husbands needs in this way and too many times it has led to unhappiness or even unfaithfulness.

ratcliffe: I'm glad you like my list.

If you are "truly in love" with the man you marry these things may come easier than what you first thought. Thanks for stopping by.

Wonderful! I can tell a lot of work has been put into this. Some of my favorites are 27, 42, 59, 61, 72, 80 and 92. But 98 would be the best.

You're right, strong and consistent sex with his wife makes a man feel loved.

I tried most of the ideas that you have jotted down here and honestly it works...I can see a spark in his eyes that was missing after marriage. The ideas are truly wonderful. Most of the ideas have brought us closer despite of the fact that we are busy working 5 days a week. Thanks for putting these amazing ideas, i'm sure most of the women like me will be benefited from this and set an example for others.

BIN:  Glad to hear that the ideas are working in your marriage.  It's just an idea until it's put into action!  Thanks for sharing your successes!

Blessed 7 years ago

I am yet to be married, but I have made a promise to myself that I will have only one man and one blissful marrriage all my life. I thank God for leading me to this page. It is very helpful and educative. The role of God in a marriage can never be underestimated. One important thing is for every lady to make sure their partner is a god fearing man. If not, you may try all you can, but the marriage still may not work. The fear of God in a spouse is a very important factor in making a marriage work. In addition, ensure you study the word of God. Thanks again for these tips. I will print them out and read each day. I know my marriage is going to be blissfull. I believe that it is going to be a model union. I know that God will reign in my home and in my kids lives.


sana 7 years ago

wow..what a beautiful list...im so glad i found it..im gonna print it and keep a copy with me at all times! i've been married 3 yrs now, and have followed quite a bit of these simple rules...but really..if any woman follows it..she can live a blessed married life forever. Thanks!

ab 7 years ago

Hi, thank you so much for this list. I think I'm much too hard on my husband most of the time, and I'm only just starting to realise it, he says he loves me every day, he can never do enough for me, always kisssess and hugs me, but I'm the one pulling away, like I don't have time, but i think it would make me feel better too, If I stopped and thought and tried some of these, we have been married 3years in september and i'm going to make this year the best of marrige ever by following some of these very true points!!!

Sam 7 years ago

In a few days, my husband and I would be married eight years. I have been working on cultivating our relationship. This is great information for me and to share. He is indeed the best husband there is. Right now we are miles away. I am working in the Caribbean and he is in Georgia he has been caring for our children all by himself for the past few months and doing a super job I may add. We ofen take our spouses for granted. We are more in love today than ever and I am looking forward to seeing him this weekend. Keep it up ladies our men is worth it that is why we married them. Our reward should come from just being that best friend.

I tried to do some listed here observing something on him.. But, he was complaining all the time he doesn't know how to appreciate things. What important to him is how can i make his life easy. Don't get me wrong this is a good list to follow and its worth a try. But, I guess it will really work only if atleast there is love between couples. I hope someday he realize it. His kids loves me to death. I don't want to be separate from his kids but im already on the edge of giving up. It's hard.

hungry4love 6 years ago

Hi, I just read your post, and was really encouraged. Thank you so much for this list, I plan on keeping it close

to me and practicing all of it.

I will be married 15 years in Feb. and I'm 34 years old.

My husband and I have had a rough go of it and I'm always

looking for new ideas to bring us closer together. Both

of us love the Lord and go to church and love each other. So we can't quite figure out why we have so many difficulties in our relationship.

Perhaps, just perhaps I'm not treating him like a true man.

I just happened to type "How to treat your man" into Google and this was the first thing that popped up. I've read it and now will practice it.

My husband is a good man and I love him dearly. I plan on

having 15 more years with him too.

Well, I'm definitely not married, or engaged, or have been together for years. But I can say that we've been together just over 5 months. Yes not long, I'm only 15, but that doesn't mean that me and my babe are not as happy as any married couple. He is what keeps me sane, and is what also drives me insane (: He's the most caring, loving man I have met, I guess you could say so far in my young life.. He's the kind of guy who doesn't need to be reminded to do something, that involves taking care of me, more so reminding me to make time so he can give back to me. I love this guy. The only one who makes me fully happy, the only one I can just relax and not worry about one thing around.

Well anyway back to te point, I just wanted to say thank-you for these absolutely true, and lovely ideas. Leaving special noes around will be my first doing (:

That list is 101 little things that put you at the top of his list. Jon I love you and hope you realize how spoiled you truly are to have a wife that does most of this pretty regularly! I

S.O.G 6 years ago from Colorado Springs, Colorado

Two things to remember. (1) the Husband is to protect and provide.(2) the wife is to submit. before you get upset lets go over the submit part. submit is another way of saying to support your husband in everything he does. the husband is to not only protect you from the world but he is to protect your heart by loving you and respecting you. I pray that your marriage will be full of blessing and that you two will always look to each other for help rather than the world. ONE more thing REMEMBER to invite Jesus Christ to your marriage and ask him to dwell in your hearts and home.

I read thru all these things and I realized that even tho we are young and only been married 5 years I don't do a lot of things I shud be doing to let him know that I still love him and always will no matter what mistakes he and I have made and making him feel like the king he deserves to be treated like. This was a very helpful website to show me how to make things better in our marriage.

Ioiela 6 years ago

These are really good ideas and they will work if both, husband and wife, are in love with each other. However, if the husband does not love his wife and the wife is trying to "win him over" by doing these things, she might end up being even more frustrated than before; the reason is that a wife has needs, too and if her husband does not love her enough, he won't care to respond to her in the same way.


Daisy 6 years ago

We are not married yet and I did not do all of them and yes others are working as a charm because every time when we have serious talk he would tell me how much he need me in his life, how he want to see us getting married and waking up every morning and finding me next to him, smiling.

jasmine: You may feel mad at him but love isn't always a feeling, sometimes it's a choice. You must be interested in making things work or you wouldn't be reading this article! Love takes work and I believe that you're already motivated just because you stopped by. All the best to your marriage!

Kristy 6 years ago

So old fashioned - BUT i agree. Too many women these days care more about having freedom to do what they want now they are equal, and control any situation, than to just get back to our genetic roots and serve your man! I am sure there is a reason women in most cultures have always been subservient, we are carers.


me 6 years ago

Was just wondering at what point do Husbands have to recipericate? My husband of 8 years and I have an amazing relationship. He is my equal and I am his. At no point has he made me feel that I need to work two jobs take care of the kids and the house while making him feel like he is a king. I find too often women will follow directions of an anitquated era with hopes that this will save marriages. I guarantee you no matter how much you do if you aren't getting the same in return. Your marriage is going to fail. It cannot be one sided. We have earned the right to vote, work and have children without a husband. Yet we still believe that instead of being treated as an equal we have to stroke the male ego. My husband is everything I could want and then some. I do things for him to let him know I love him. But you have to do what is in the best interest of your relationship and stop following directions that still believe that you are only there to make him feel superior. .


I G N O A 6 years ago

This is exactly what i've been looking for great advice thank you


blessedmommy profile image

blessedmommy 6 years ago from Oklahoma City Metro, Oklahoma Author

To the person signed in with the username me...It seems to me that you more than likely follow the philosophy, "the only way that I love you is if I know you love me too." I agree that marriages should not be one sided and that both partners should care for the needs of the other...that is why I wrote articles for both husband and wife. However, what happens if you are not always treated the way you think you should be? Do you quit loving him? If so, then you married for the wrong reason. You do not marry to be treated like a queen/king. But...if you love someone this is something that you should do to prove your love. Quit trying to be his equal. You are not his equal and he is not yours. You are two separate individuals with different strengths and weaknesses. What does it hurt to make him feel like a king? You love him right? If the thought of that hurts then you are housing selfish motives in your marriage. If you want what is in the best interest for your marriage then I would advise that you DO follow the directions. Quit trying to push yourself to the front of the marriage. You said that you are in an amazing relationship and I'm guessing that the reason you feel that way is because your husband loves you enough to help meet your needs in the marriage whether it's showing affection or helping with the kids and housework. But I'm wondering by the attitude I'm sensing here...If he was asked, could he say the same for you?

Thank you for posting this and related lists. We married young(ish), at 21 and have been married 2 1/2 years. We went through a really rough patch recently and considered separation because neither of us were getting treated the way we wanted to and very hurtful things were said and done. We managed to talk things through and commit to treating each other much better for both of our happiness. I found this list and "101 ways to tell your wife I love you". At first I was shy about sharing it with my husband but got up the nerve and told him nicely. Now we both use tips from the lists and both love it. It just hadn't occurred to us to do many of these things and over time we felt alienated from each other. My biggest no -no from this list was not acting like wife instead of his mom! I was being really bossy and smothering and didn't realize it. I love the extra attention I've been getting too. Thank you so much!

SAJ 6 years ago

OMG!! This is really usefull. Even though we were really in love before I get kids and before starting to live by ourselves after we got really busy with two kids and both of our full time jobs we started to live like machines. We don't be together for months believe me it was really stressfull to me. But my husband didn't even care he was just busy and always get angry just not even talking to me even a single loving word like he used to be. I was really worried but I have so much patience. I tried solutions and just one day googled something to solve the problem and came across your posting. OMG I just tried only few things you have mentioned her. He understood how stressfull I was and he is getting back to his normal life like he used to be with me before I got my kids. I don't have words to thank you for these posts.. I am much much happier now. I hope to do more things on your list.. Will let you know..

THANKS THOUSANDS OF TIMES!!

Heidi 6 years ago

I really enjoyed reading this, but I wish I would of came by this article alot sooner. In Aug will be my 2nd Anniversary on my 2nd marriage now. I thought everything was find I WAS HAPPY and I really thought he was. To tell you the truth I have never had a good relationship w/ a man I have been in very abusive relationships prior to this one.

My husband is in the Army we have been going thru our first deployment together and its been more but stressful, well we have almost split up 2 times prior b/c he keeps looking for woman online and sneaking around. Last week he told me it was over (I had no clue this was even coming) I was shocked after 10 months of waiting for him he calls it quits 2 months before he is to return we even were suppost to go to Germany by the end of the year together. I have children from prev relationships that are very hurt over this also b/c they loved him also.

The thing I don't understand is how a man tells you he loves you and is happy. and than all the sudden wants a divorce and is so distant and says he has never been happy. I just wish he was here for me to do some of these things for him and try to change for the better. I do think I have been a good wife maybe there was more I could of done, but I also think the man needs to also do some of these things for us too. Anyways I did read it ALL and I do think its a great article. I will apply it and see what happens.

I keep praying for God to perform a miracle in my husbands heart and to make him realize how much he is loved and how hard this is on me and the kids. This just happened about a week ago so I am still pretty distraught over it. sorry so long.

Wow! These are really good tips that most of today's society forgets to do. You see the divorce rates and gosh I mean after falling in love this type of stuff is what keeps love ignited for a lifetime. I'm not married yet, but a classmate is getting married this Saturday (maybe I should pass these on to her). Me on the other hand am still waiting for my prince (sigh).


USMC Wife 6 years ago

I've been married for one year and we have been together for two and a half. I LOVED reading this blog. It sure has helped me out with my marriage. We've been on some rocky roads lately mostly cause of his job and how long he has away from home and how were not as close and how we have no communication at all. We even talked about a divorce but because we had no comminucation and no respect for eachother. But thanks to this our marriage has gotten better and were getting along so great. Our son is happy to see us happy and having fun with one another. No more fights in our house hold. Im the happiest person ever! I've used a whole lot of these so far and my husband now feels appreciated and loved. The other day he told me that he thought i didn't love him anymore. I cried and told him that i could never stop loving such an amazing man. I married him for a reason and that will never change. Thank you for everything. Keep up the good work and i hope to see more blogs to help marriages. God Bless!


tina 6 years ago

this definitely would keep ur marriage so happy and enjoyable. This is what people are missing out and thats why they end up in divorce, they don't know how to love and be loved!

God bless u & ur husband, & keep u always happy!


shanna 6 years ago

i like the article, i am in a situation where by husband likes more to spend his times with friends rather than me. he couldn't stay at home more hours but at night he comes to sleep. when i say that he says that he is a man and men cant stay at home for many times. it is not like that he is with another women, i call him, he answers, i hear from background voices of men. he earns money by doing works and buying things and selling,so its his way of socializing. i do understand, but i feel sad because i want to spend more time with my husband, to enjoy to be loved and cared. so is it a problem if i am asking him to stay with me more time

I loved this and the "101 Ways To Tell Your Wife 'I Love You'" post. Number 101 is my favorite. I do tell my husband that I love him before he leaves for work and before we go to bed at night, but I never thought about how good throwing in a couple extra "I love you's" unexpectedly throughout the day would make him feel.

Thanks for the lists, and for putting something positive into the world.

Even though it's a bit hard when he's away at sea

for work, but he always returns, and calls when

he's at shore, visits are also amazing spending time

.. we talk only 3 days every month every year for

4 months. He's a happy man, he's looking forward for

a family now :)

My husband of 29 years had an affair 6 years ago....it was hugely painful for both of us, but I cannot stress how important it was for me to truly forgive him. It took some time and a large amount of effort on both our parts, but it was well worth it. No one is perfect, but I am married to my soul mate and I love him unconditionally.

I can honestly say that I do most of these with an exception to about 4, and my husband I are very happy. Our life is a lot of fun, and our children are very happy as well. As my husband always says, "You work to live not live to work, so remember to love your family to the fullest because you only have one."


Ls 6 years ago

I just got married last June 26th, we only dated 4 months and then get married. We followed the christian way w/o doing things before marriage. In the beginning i feel so loved. And something happened twice already that i think he still is grieving w/ his late wife. It hurts me and i don't feel loved by him although he does things so devoted to me. Can anybody suggests what to do for me to feel his love and trust him completely because i want this relationship to work as a vow to each other and to God. I know i love him but i don't feel his love sometimes. Please help me. Thanks!

Thank, GOD!Ihave been looking for something all day that i could do for my husbad just because. Been trying to spice up our marriage a bit. We been together 9 years and married 6. Got 2 kids and well life just gets in the way. The sign in the yard thing is an awesome inexpensive way to say i love you, im thinking about calling the radio station and playing that song stuck like glue by sugarland (country), and i've already made him one of his favorite things to eat that i never fix because i don't like it (meatloaf) and i've put a picture of him as my desktop on the computer and wrote the best husband in MY WORLD! If those don't get his attention and let him know i love him, i don't know what will. i thought about washing his truck (ive never washed his vehicle for him, ive washed mine and hes washed both ours but ive never washed his) but i think ill save that for another day. thanks alot. great list. ill save it.

Melissa Spencer 6 years ago

Very Nice.

I find it kind of funny how, Even though I am on the verge of becoming an "adult" and I am not quite there yet, that my boyfriend and I are very close, and I do a lot of these things for him. Now, I don't mean, showering with him, or sleeping with him. What I mean is that we are very close, I spend a lot of time with him, and we get to do a lot together. Including some of these. He seems like something I was missing all along. We take walks at the park, I will scratch his back or rub his feet without him asking, and he does the same. It is very nice, how we do so many things for each other. He is currently in college and every weekend that I get to see him we always have something for each other. Usually its something small and sweet that we have each hand made and we love it! ( a couple weeks ago I went to see him at his dorm and he had posted over 50 posters saying "I love my Milly!" on them. IT WAS SO SWEET!) We understand each other so well. I am so happy to have met him. We tend to think about the future a lot. He wants to marry me, steal me away forever, and be his, and thats the way I want it too. Life is just so much better now.

Thanks for the advice! I will definitely try some things on here that I already haven't. :D


nrosario 6 years ago

I cannot thank you enough for these great tips...if anyone doubts that these will work, I have to tell you...

Just two weeks ago I thought that after 12yrs of living together and 1yr of marriage and a 9 yr old son...and dealing with my husband's crazy money hungry ex, and his crazy family, and our son's autism...well, the stress of daily life was just too much...we had a huge fight that I ended up going for a walk to talk to a neighbor...I really thought it was just over...he did too...and then I decided to really listen to what he told me in the argument, without attempting to say "well, but I have my reasons too"...and just let it go...and as I was looking for sites on "when it's over", I found this site...I decided to tell him "I'm sorry that with all the problems we have had, many out of our control, that I was so lost in those problems that I forgot to really let you know how much you meant to me..." I think he was truly like "sure, whatever...we'll see"...and with that I began following this list...I can tell you that our relationship has taken a 180 in the opposite direction...without me asking he's even started to kiss me before he leaves in the morning even though I am still in bed fully asleep...that's what wakes me up now...there are still a few times I get a bit overwhelmed with problems, but I take a deep breath and do one of the things on the list INSTEAD...and so far, I can say that our relationship has blossomed...Thank you so very much...maybe this needs to be required reading for couples in trouble...

Soinluvwithmyhubby 6 years ago

We are going on 8 years married in January & we have had a long road to get there. For about a month back in mid October we were really working hard ourselves, because lets face it that is what it comes down to, & my husband discovered the 101 ways to tell your wife you love her & he told me that there is one for women as well if I was interested. We agreed not to look at each others list so that high expectations take away from the effort. Well I got to tell you my goal has been to do every single one then recognize the ones that he really loves and contiue to do them and enhance them to show my love for him. Now ladies no I am not living in a bubble, there are days when I don't feel like he desrves it, but who am I to judge. So what I try to do then is turn around & pick one that is difficult & do it anyway......The results are AWESOME girls!!!! God created us to LOVE with no limits or expectations, therefore when we obey that command the outcome is always a great blessing. Thank you for the advice because the future of the church is the strength of the family unit. May the Lord continue to bless others for your commitment to making it work & bless you & your family.

chris wright 6 years ago

I am happily married to my soul mate. We both complete and compliment each other. I am not afraid to speak what he feels. I lack tact which he has. He is the soft side that I hide. My husband runs our house. I run the kids with his help. I never let the kids come between us. If he lays down a law I uphold it. I am blessed to have him. I have ocd and so does he. Checking and rechecking door nobs does not bother either of us (we both do it) it is just something that can make the average person crazy. Im far from perfect. When he is doing something that irritates me. I close my eyes breathe deep and imagine my life without him. That stops my tongue. I remember what a blessing he is. He puts up with me. That is a handful. He was 49 when we met I was 37. I am just saddend that I met him later. I had to go through hell first. That way I could truly appreciate him. I try not to bring the past into my marriage. He is my future. He is my heart. He is my true love. My love for him does not end not even death could stop it. My love for him is eternal. I love you, Charlie.

well i must say that im on op of the list and maybe even 2 steps ahead. while i was reading there were more than a few that i and my husband already do. nice to know im on the right tract. Guess thats why were in our 30s both 1st marriages and waited for each other and never settled. Our friends and family are a bit envious, and of course very happy for us, but i guess thats the one guilty sin i will gladly take:) I see 50yrs+ that is if we live that long lol.

Steph 5 years ago

I've tried to do many of these things, but he doesn't like a lot of the things that I've tried on this list but the things I've tried are the only things I can really stand to do every day. I used to make him a special breakfast every morning, he doesn't like to kiss, I'm a stay at home mom and don't have any friends or anyone to talk to, but he doesn't want to talk about anything but work. I was hoping to find some tips to make him treat me like he loves me again


Ahlam lbrahim 5 years ago

I have to admit that those advice will definitely keep marriages fun and loving! I am not married but i have a boyfriend whom i have been with for one year and i love him dearly! but we are so close that it is in gods hands for us to get married! the reason i say that is because my parents dont approve of me having a boyfriend and they believe in arrange marriages! i dont have that belief and i am truly deeply in love with my boyfriend! and i am going to do my best to work things out! but your 101 ways to make a husband happy are the best!! thank you for taking the time reading this!

God bless you and your husband!

jj3109 5 years ago

My husabnd and I have been married almost 2 years(just a few weeks shy) and I can say we have had a good number of arguments. Of course. I do like to be right, and I like a lot of things my way especially with our daughter. But once I started to let my husband take control, things have been better for us. It does hurt that I can't "control" everything. I would much rather hang on to our marriage and family. These tips have helped a lot. I feel better with myself putting my husband first.

I have been married for 12/half yrs and I have spent so much of that time being angry and upset b/c I often look for my hubby to make me happy and alot of the advice have been through out my marriage have been stop complaining and do something nice for your hubby and in return you will see how nice he becomes too you but unfortunately I didn't take that advice often enough. But after reading your list I found that it's what people have been advicing for 12 yrs for me to do. Yes we are pass all the crazyness and I must surrender to doing somethings on your list and I will do one today Thank you so much Silly ME
