We all love our hubbys. They work hard, sacrifice and always make providing for the family a priority. They also know exactly how to adore us, in their own way. We just need to keep an eye out for the signs.
With all the long hours we put into making our marriage, home and life as happy as possible, it's difficult to stop and look for tiny signs of your husband's love and support. But if you do just that, you'll feel the tender love your husband has for you. Here's what to look for:
1. He brags to his friends
When that guy's night rolls around, your husband takes it as the perfect opportunity to tell his buddies how hard you work as a wife and mother. He goes on and on about how much he appreciates what you do and cherishes your love. Talking a little with his best friend will give you some hints on how much your man adores you.
2. He's protective
He's not jealous, but he is very protective over you. Your husband seeks to make you feel safe and comfortable. A man who adores his wife will never cease to always want to protect her.
3. He compliments you
You're beautiful and your husband will recognize that. In one way or another, he will remind you that he understands how lucky he is to have a wife so endearing and full of beauty. Men are simple: if he sees that his wife is beautiful, he will say so.
4. He admits he is wrong
This is a big one. No one really loves to admit when they are wrong about something. Both men and women are guilty of this. But the man who admits he is wrong (even if he is not) really, truly and deeply adores you. Not just any person will do this, so if this describes your husband, you married yourself a winner.
5. He's patience
This is something every husband and wife could use a little more of. Being married means putting up with a lot of quirks...some of which aren't very endearing. If he remains patient when you are talking in circles or taking a lifetime to get to the point of your story, bless his heart!
6. He listens when you vent
When your husband has the gift of just sitting and listening to what you have to say, he truly loves you. It's a sign he is putting your thoughts and feelings first and wants to hear you out.
He treats you with respect and values your thoughts and opinions. When a man constantly asks to hear what is going on inside your mind, it's because he sees you as an equal partner in your marriage. He aims to hear your options about finances and where to go on vacation because he knows you too have equal say in your marriage.
8. He sacrifices for you
Look, if you have a man who will go shopping with you and sincerely gives his opinion about how you look in that dress then don't torture him by going into every single store. It's a big deal that he went shopping with you in the first place, if at all! If he does things for you just because you like it then that means he is 100% your number one fan; show him some love in return by respecting his sacrifice.
If he asks questions about how your Dad's doing and if Mom is recovering from her cold, you've married a gentlemen who cares about others. Your husband has a sincere desire to tend and care for you and that applies to those that loved you before him. That is just too adorable!
10. You're the priority
Wife equals priority. Period. A man who truly loves you makes you a priority, no matter the circumstance.
Look for those small gestures and actions because they mean everything. Afterall, actions do speak louder than words.
