Love seems to come with a lot of mixed signals. But for some reason, once you get married these signals seem to get scattered all across the universe. It feels impossible trying to decipher what your spouse is trying to tell you. For married couples, sometimes it's not as easy to communicate or share each other's thoughts and feelings as it once was. There are definitely things your wife would love for you to do, but for some reason or another, she won't ever ask you outright. Confusing, right?
If you're feeling a little bit out of the loop, here are 25 things your wife wants you to do but won't tell you.
1. Hug me
Any hug will do, but the ones that linger and mean something do wonders for your wife's mood and your relationship.
2. Trust me
Don't ever doubt her. Your wife capable of anything she puts her mind to.
3. Tell me I'm right
Even if you disagree. Sometimes, your wife just needs a "win".
4. Help with the kids
Even if it's just helping to get their teeth brushed and put to bed, these small actions are steps in the right direction. Step in and help out whenever possible.
5. Listen to me when I'm talking
All she needs is two minutes of your undivided attention. Put down the phone, stop thinking about work and actually listen.
6. Massage my feet
A good foot massage works wonders.
7. Support me
Be there for her when she needs someone to lean on.
8. Tell me "thank you"
Being a mom and a wife is a hard job. Thanking her for what she does, especially the little things, means the world to her.
9. Help me around the house
Dusting, vacuuming, organizing, cleaning, gardening, sweeping, washing and folding. You name it. If it looks dirty, more likely than not, she'll love you if you help to clean it up.
