This article is the follow-up to 9 Things Every Woman Should Know About Her Husband

Many men will tell you that they have no clue what their wives are thinking.  Is she mad?  Did I do something wrong?  What’s the big deal? What did I say? She definitely took that the wrong way. So, the real question is how do men minimize these thoughts and improve their relationships with their wives? I think it’s rather simple. Get to know a few things about her that you just might not be considering.

I certainly don’t claim to know how every woman thinks, but as a married woman with plenty of female friends, I think I can share a thing or two to help men understand their wives a little bit better and make their lives a lot happier.

A couple of weeks ago I shared nine things I think every woman should know about her husband.  From the response, it seems like the list resonated with so many of you and that’s great.  Now, it’s only right that I flip the script and share nine things I think every man should know about his wife. I hope this list helps a brother out.  Let us know what we should add to this list.

She Doesn't Need You to Fix Everything

Men have the tendency to try and fix things when their wives are upset and share a problem. But sometimes she just needs you to listen. That’s all. Just listen.

    Their are some things as a man, I forget to say or mention or do. But I truly want my lady to be happy other than paying the bills. Cause their are times I don’t tell her she’s looking good because I expect it. Some times after years being with someone you have a tendency to expect certain things. But, when I am out and I see certain things she may like, I buy it as a surprise. I her give credit when she accomplish some things she likes. Women can also nudge a man into what’s missing. One thing this article reminds me of is keeping the romance upfront because, she’s still your sweetie.

by Bhek and Allison Simmons

Bhek and Allison Simmons have been together for over 20 years, 17 as husband and wife.  Through the ups and downs of life and marriage, they have used their faith – and a bit of comedy — to uphold and enrich their marriage as they seek to assist other couples in learning how to live and grow together.

Check out what Bhek and Allison have to say about building a strong, long lasting marriage:

He Says . . .

BhekandAllisonSimmons1.  Lay down your sword. There is nothing gained by fighting your partner. Win or lose, you lose.

2.  Seek first to serve.  Both of us worried about her or both of us worried about me means someone is getting marginalized. That is toxic.

3. Listen. No really. Formulating an answer while she is talking is not listening. Hear her. Rephrase what you thought she said to try and get it right. There is no peace as long as she feels misunderstood.

4. Keep your word. Trust will carry you through where success eludes. Once trust is lost, so is respect.  That can take years to repair.

5.  Be patient. When people feel like there is no room for their issues or imperfections, they are encouraged to be less than open and honest.  See #4.

I try to practice all five of these every day. I fail at some part of it every day.  Which brings me to the bonus tip:

6. Realize that you and your spouse and your marriage are all “works in progress” that are continually evolving.  Have a sense of humor about yourself and forgive at least twice as much as you require forgiveness. You have until you die to get it right.
