Your husband is your honor. He is the foundation and pillar of your home. Just as a building will collapse if the foundation and the pillars are not strong, so, your husband will become feeble not physically but morally and financially if you are not there to give him all your support in whatever that he is doing. In other words, you have to invest in your husband if you really want to reap and enjoy the fruit of a successful marriage. Here are some few tips to apply in order to invest in your husband.
Seeking to understand him
Understanding is a virtue highly required in marriage in many ways. Without understanding, a marriage will be on the verge of breaking. This is because it is applied in many aspects of marriage such as communication, finance issues and others. For example, if you don't understand your husband's work schedule, you may end up resenting him. You need understanding in order to appreciate the reasons behind your husband actions or why he behaves the way he behaves. So, it is important that you focus on your husband overlooking every negative circumstances as well as how it affects you. However, it may be difficult for you to understand him completely. Whether you fully understand him or not, it is important that you give him your full acceptance. In so far as he is genuine, you will understand him with time.
Accepting your husband or tolerating is very important if you want to invest in him. If you don't accept your husband, he will get the impression that you are mounting pressure on him to turn into what he is not. On the contrary, if you accept him, he will have the impression that you accept him for what he is in the present and not what he will become in the future.
Understanding his needs to provide for his family by working
Many women had problems understanding their husband work of life as well as the pressure the work mounts on him and other people around him. Nature has made it that man should toil in order to fend for himself and the members of his families. So, as a wife, you should understand his needs for work. This will help you to understand his work life. Sometimes, men get engulfed in their works in their effort to become significant in the family and also get a sense of well-being. So, your husband needs your encouragement in his profession. He also needs you to control him so that he will not be a workaholic forgetting other aspects of life. So, strike a balance between these two aspects.
Understanding his sexual needs
Some women make the mistake of judging sexual needs of their husband from their own sexual needs. There are women that get offended because they think that husband are very sexual active. If you play down on his sexual needs, you are breaking his sense of self esteem.
Nature has made men the head of their families. As the head of the families, they often require respect from the members of their households. So, as a woman, no matter your works of life, you should respect your husband. In other words, you have to understand your husband's need for respect. He is not different from other men. It is deeply seated in the being of men.
