Talk with her about your problem.

Whether it is a financial, social or other problem, just let her know. Tell her everything about your current issues. It’s all about having no secrets.

As I said, secrets create the foundation for the fall of marriage. It is easy to lie rather than telling the truth. But the person who lies to his wife is a person who doesn’t have a personality.

If you are focusing on the phone, when she is talking to you, you will not hear what she say. Maybe the thing she is trying to say is important to her or the family. So put the phone away.

Human relations get stronger when they interact face to face. Because most of the messages get passed with non-verbal clues. Things like eye-contact are more critical when communicating with someone. It gets totally interrupted when you are using mobile phones when talking. It will make your wife feel bad. She will stop trying her things to you. So put the phone away. It will help you to be a better husband.

Wife is different from your friends. You can’t treat her in the way you treat your friends. We can insult our friends without hurting their feelings. But the wife is a different role. Don’t compare them and insult your wife.people are different fro each other. None of us has the same attitudes. So understand her mind before talking to her. Maybe she will not get that you are joking. She may take things seriously—That’s why you should not compare in the way you treat your friends.

Takedown your shield

You may have more knowledge, more experience than your wife. You may not apologise for the mistakes you have done because of that. Remember, pride kills the marriage. It only results in fights and divorces. If you want to be a better husband, put your shield down, offer peace, make apologies. Even it is your fault, offer peace first. It will help you to save your valuable time, and it will definitely create a happy life.

Surprise her

surprise your wife
