What Women Want: 10 Things Every Wife Needs to Hear From Her Husband

What Women Want

Do men ever know what women want? That’s the question every man has on his mind. Life isn’t always like the movies. Even the best relationships have their down days. This list is for you to share with your spouse. I know it might sound strange to give your husband a list of things you want him to say to you, but sometimes husbands wish they knew what their wife wanted them to say. Have you ever looked at your husband and wished he would say something sweet, kind, or at least say something at all?

Rather than expecting your husband to sift through the signals of what you are really trying to say, try saying what you really mean. I’m learning this is super effective in communicating in marriage.

Print this list and slip it in a place your husband will find it, or send him this link so he can read it for himself and come up with his own way of saying something thoughtful. I know it sounds silly, but trust me, your husband will thank you for giving him a little more clarity on what you really need to hear from him.

Some of the questions on the list might require eye contact, a conversation, or an embrace without any expectations.

So here you go!
