Successful relationships are built when two people are unselfish enough to change their focus from their needs to making the needs of their partner a priority. It can take a lifetime to develop that kind of selfishness, but it's something worth working toward. Here are a few ways to can start better meeting your husband's needs:
You might wonder what your husband is really looking for when it comes to fun. Every man is different, but each one is looking for some excitement.
Marriage is a valuable union because the power of two is greater than one. However, that power can only be harnessed if the two people embrace their individuality. Each of you needs to value your independence to make your relationship successful. So make meeting your husband's need for space a priority.
Support his hobbies (even if you don't enjoy them) by cheering at his baseball game or buying him equipment
Just turn on the TV and you'll see the dumb husband trope played over and over again. Treating your husband like he's playing that part in real life doesn't do him (or you) any favors. You know he's better than that. Your husband needs to feel respected, especially by you.
