The Ideal Wife

It is never easy to be a wife. It is never an easy task as others may think it is. And I strongly believe that every wife just like me wants the husband to be happy not just every time they are together but for the entire marital relationship… for a lifetime.

Since I really love reading for several reasons most of the time, for personal and professional growth, I have read a write-up on what a man looks and expects his woman to be. Upon discernment, I have decided to share it to all the wives around the globe.

  • She ought to have a warm loving nature – delighted in sharing with him all reasonable pleasures.

  • She has to be in good health – be able to encourage him to also maintain a healthy body, mind and lifestyle.

  • She has to give him the freedom from possessiveness. Men say that the excessively possessive heart tends to be quite selfish, jealous and doubtful. Thus, it attributes deprivation from the joys, happiness and fulfillments of the lifetime commitment.

  • She has the interests in making a real home. Her power to make a house a home reigned by love, respect, trust and understanding.

  • She is a certified effective and efficient manager and budget officer.

  • She must never be a nagger. She may always share her thoughts and insights; yet, this must never be done in such a harsh, rough and tough manner. Remember that nagging irritates the husband.

  • She has a set of twins: understanding and kindness for peace and harmony in the home atmosphere.

  • She feeds his husband’s ego. Learn to appreciate and love his actions and words. Sometimes, it is never harmful to make him feel superior and special.

  • She possesses physical attractiveness, faithfulness and spiritual strength. They simply complete a woman’s image – strong yet vibrant, bubbly and sophisticated.

Yet, do not live to these points alone. Remember that you should still be the real you and you’ve got to be true to yourself, too. You should also consider doing things to make you happy and never do things for him alone or not just to satisfy him. You must always do things for both of you as well as your and your husband’s happiness.

And husbands, you’ve got to do your part, too.

Great post and good information. I share this article with my wife as well.
I agreed that wives have to be themselves and not only pleased their husband or satisfy him only, Both must have their own space, time as well, if you give your husband some space and time probably he will be more happy and you also will find your happiness.

Very nice Article and I really enjoyed it. The last part/closing is very important because the Wife has needs and wants also.

After 26 years of marriage if there's one thing that holds true it is,"You get back what you give" within the relationship.

Very nice!

It seems that in this world being a mutually supportive couple has fallen out of favor somehow, but we must all remember that everyone needs to know they're loved, they're respected, and that they're supported in their goals.

Thanks for sharing!

I appreciate this post. I have been married for 1 1/2 years and I love my husband with all of my heart. I know a lot about what it takes to make relationships work, but I don't have many examples of what a healthy marriage look like. Thank you so much for writing this a clear and concise list of what a man thinks is the ideal wife : )

Now the question is, where can I find a woman that follows those points?

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Great post my friend, I like your final conclusion too, because it takes two to tango!
Never a woman nor a man has to sacrifice every thing of the own caracter. Like you say: one has to be true to him- or herself.

Have a great evening!
