The Top 10 Tips on How to Be a Good Wife
These are direct quotes. And remember the marriage is not a contract but an understanding of two minds.
1. Have dinner ready.
You heard old saying, the road to men’s heart start from stomach. You must plan ahead, have a delicious meal ready, on time for his return and make sure you know the timing. This is a way of letting him know that you have been thinking about him and are concerned about his needs. This also will give you more time to spend together. Most men are hungry when they come home and the prospect of a good meal (especially his favourite dish) is part of the warm welcome needed.
2. Prepare yourself.
Take 15 minutes to rest so you’ll be refreshed when he arrives. Touch up your make-up, put a ribbon in your hair and be fresh looking. He has just been with a lot of work-weary people. Be a little gay and a little more interesting for him. His boring day may need a lift and one of your duties is to provide it. Mind you, he loves you a lot!!!
3. Clear away the clutter.
Make one last trip through the main part of the house just before your husband arrives. Gather up schoolbooks, toys, paper etc. and then run a dust cloth over the tables. Men’s mostly look like unorganized but they like organized life.
4. Over the cooler months of the year you should prepare and light a fire for him to unwind by.
Your husband will feel he has reached a haven of rest and order, and it will give you a lift too. After all, catering for his comfort will provide you with immense satisfaction. Men’s are rather less expressive so he surly will compensate your efforts in due course.
5. Ready the children and minimize all noise.
Take a few minutes to wash the children’s hands and faces. If they are small, comb their hair, and, if necessary, change their clothes. They are little treasures and he would like to see them playing the part. At the time of his arrival, eliminate all noise of the washer, dryer or vaccum. Try to encourage the children to be quiet.
6. Greet him with a warm smile and show sincerity in your desire to please him.
Make him comfortable. Have him lean back in a comfortable chair or have him lie down in the bedroom. Have a cool or warm drink ready for him. Arrange his pillow and offer to take off his shoes. Speak in a low, soothing and pleasant voice.
7. Listen to him.
You may have a dozen important things to tell him, but the moment of his arrival is not the time. Let him talk first — remember, his topics of conversation are more important than yours.
8. Make the evening his.
Never complain if he comes home late or goes out to dinner, or other places of entertainment without you. Instead, try to understand his world of strain and pressure and his very real need to be at home and relax.
10. Your goal: Try to make sure your home is a place of peace, order and tranquility where you husband can renew himself in body and spirit.
Don’t greet him with complaints and problems. Don’t complain if he’s late for dinner, or even if he stays out all night. Count this as minor compared to what he might have gone through that day.
11. Don’t ask him questions about his actions or question his judgment or integrity.
Remember, he is the master of the house and as such will always exercise his will with fairness and truthfulness. You have no right to question him.
You all may be thinking that what all these things I am doing, you might think don’t you have some rights to say or live your life? Yes you do have but this is the only matter of men’s state of mind. Once he is happy and satisfied, then he is all yours all the life for everything. Even if you are a working women above hold true with little bit of changes.
