They want their wife to shut up about what they really want.
Haha. j/k. I'm just a young buck, but I'll pretend I know something about this. I think husbands want to be loved. They want people to be nicer about their mishaps, because they're embarrassed. They also like baseball maybe.
They want you to be the sexiest woman on earth while you take their mothers place taking care of them.
Show up naked and bring beer. Read my Hub on 'How to live with a Narcissist" that may give you some insight, with a little levity. You will probably leave my page glad that you are not in my shoes.
I don't know about anybody else's husband wants but mine wants to be understood and would greatly appreciate it if I would become a mind reader so that conversation wouldn't actually be necessary.
As far as husbands in general? I think that they are in search of the same things wives are. The difference is that they don't always know how to ask for it and are afraid that when they finally figure out how to ask for it we are going to say "no." One thing I have learned is that just because they can't say it or won't ask it doesn't mean that they don't feel it.
I suppose it varies from man to man.
For the most part most men want a lot of the same things women want to be loved, great sex, appreciation, & surprised.
Some guys also want their food cooked, clothes washed, groceries purchased....etc Other men share in all of these household duties, more praise than complaints, and last but not least (be accepted as he is!)
There's an old saying that goes:
"Men marry women hoping they'll never change.
Women marry men hoping they'll change over time."
I think every husband enters into a marriage with different expectations, some more unrealistic than others. For me, my ex-husband wanted a live-in housekeeper who would cater to his every whim without having to expend any effort in return. He didn't even really seem to care how often he could partake of those "wifely duties" just as long as I kept the house clean and took care of the kid and animals...while making a full-time wage, of course.
On the other side of the spectrum, my husband wants to feel loved and respected, and he loves seeing little signs that I've been thinking about him and do try to be considerate of him. In return he wants, as he puts it, for me to do whatever I want. He spent a long time as a very neat and tidy bachelor so he doesn't mind doing all the housework by himself, and whatever I contribute falls into that "thinking of him" category. While he's very impressed that I make a living as a writer, he doesn't care if my income falls one week because I was more in the mood to read a book or do handcrafts. As part of respect, he also wants me not to try to control him or tell him what to do, and in return he offers me the same courtesy. In other words, he wants me to be happy while treating him like a decent human being.
