    How to be a supportive wife? Creative ideas to let your husband know you're behind him.

    Wives, are there creative ideas you've done in the past that your husband felt loved by? Or husbands, what are things you wish your wife did that would make you feel trusted, loved, and respected?

    Organize a small social gathering to celebrate his latest endeavor. Invite close friends who would be interested in hearing about his successes; ask them to write down their favorite pieces of advice for his future success, then assemble these into a gift that he can look through when times aren't as great. Make your husband the center of attention; serve a few of his favorite dishes and reserve him a spot at the head of the table. Your efforts will be noted, and he will enjoy the attention and well wishes that both you and his friends will provide him with.

    One has to show their partner they are supportive and do this by buying him or her a gift something that symbolizes and shows you support each other, go out for the evening be alone  together and talk about the matter. Make him or her know how much you care about the interests of the other. Be there no matter what goes on, show interest from your side of things.

    You can be a supportive wife to your husband by listening to what he has to say. Even if you don't totally agree with his plan, let him try to do what he feels is right. Just let him know if he wants your help or ideas to let you know. He will feel you are supportive. If his plan doesn't work out well, then you might make your suggestions. Husbands don't like it when they say they will do something a certain way and the wife contradicts them or tells them that's not right. (This could turn into an argument easily, so avoid it.)

    Men are always practical outside, but very sensitive inside. When you boost up his ego he feels good. When you show respect, care and love he feels protected. When you totally support him in his times of need he feels he has a mother in you. When you do not nag, he adores you.
