Unfortunately, that's what an ideal marriage sounds like in an ideal work. Reality looks different. In reality, divorce is a serious problem in our society. Not every marriage is happy and not every marriage lasts.
As a man who found the woman of his dreams, I have to admit that we men are not innocent when it comes to breakups and divorces. Sometimes we are the ones who push the wives we love further and further away from us.
The saddest thing is that most men don't even realize that their behavior is having a negative effect on their relationship. And one day, they'll cluelessly wonder why their wife left them a letter on the kitchen table.
That's not how it should be. As a man and as a husband it's your duty to protect your wife's heart, not to break it. Don't hurt your wife in these silent ways:
1. You check out other women
Your wife wants to be your queen. She wants you look at her and think "I married the most beautiful woman in the world".
What do you communicate when you check out other women?
You basically say that you desire other women more than you desire her. Your wife wants to be desired, loved and appreciated. She wants to be your number one.
Think about how much you hurt her before you allow your eyes to wander.
2. You only talk about yourself
Imagine you come home from work and you immediately start to tell your wife about your boss, your coworkers and your plans for the weekend. She listens because she's interested in your life. She wants to know how you feel and what you experienced.
Now it's your turn to listen to her. But the moment she opens her mouth, you walk away from her to switch on the TV.
How does she feel?
Just think about how you would feel if she did the same to you.
3. You don't do the small things you used to do
Do you remember the time when you and your wife met? Do you remember your first date?
I'm sure that you acted like a real gentleman. You opened the door for her. You looked deep into her eyes. You gave her a gentle kiss on the head.
Now that you're married, you don't do any of these things.
You are too busy. You don't have time. And when you are really honest to yourself, you don't care about these things anymore, now that you won her heart.
But just because she's yours now doesn't mean she won't leave if you break her heart. Make time to be that caring, loving and thoughtful gentlemen your wife first fell in love with.
