Five top compliments your wife expects from you!

Do you know that your wife craves for your compliments more than anything else? But do you compliment her? I am afraid you do not know how to compliment wife! But you are more than ready to pass sneering comments about her!

Why are you averse to compliment your wife?

The simple fact is that you feel her contribution to the family as a part of her duty and so nothing to feel obsessed about. How wrong you are! Do you know you are missing one of the easiest ways to make your relationship very warm and loving?

How do you feel when your wife overlooks your contribution to the family? You feel frustrated that your wife does not compliment you, don’t you? What it is for you is for her also!

You weed out stress off your relationship when you compliment your wife as it instantly sends her the message that you observe and notice her relentless work for the family. You wife adores you when you notice her!

Do you want to know what sort of compliments your wife likes?

  1. She wants you to compliment her looks!
  2. She likes you when you compliment her cooking!
  3. She adores you when you praise her when you are with friends\relatives\colleagues.
  4. She feels fulfilled when you make her feel that you cannot do without her.
  5. She feels thrilled when you praise her for being an excellent mother!

Not too difficult to fulfill, is it? You make your married life boring and dull by being uncommunicative and not observing the goodness of your wife!

1.You look beautiful!

When in love you utter these words an umpteenth time! But after marriage you do not notice her beauty or the care she takes to look good before you. Your wife wants you to feel that she is beautiful! And she craves for your compliments about her beauty!

You look ravishing!

Wow! This dress suits you!

Your eyes look beautiful!

I just can’t take my eyes off you!

Have you ever uttered these words to her? I am afraid you do not even feel your wife to be beautiful as you have had enough of her beauty. But strangely your eyes rove around for beauty elsewhere, when you have it right beside you. How mean of you! Do you feel stilted to compliment the beauty of your wife? Don’t feel so! It should be the most natural thing in the world for you.

2.Wow! This tastes real good!

My husband always complimented my cooking and it made me very loved and cared. Mind you, he would also lash out if my cooking was bad. Well, when I accepted his compliments I must accept his criticism also, mustn’t I?

Do not think cooking is an easy joke. Satisfying your rumbling stomach takes lots of work and care from your wife. When you eat without appreciating her she feels irritated that she had slogged sweaty hours just to have you eat your stomach full without saying a word. ‘This is the best dish I have eaten’ your compliment wants her to cook even better for you.

3. She is a good wife!

Are you among friends\relatives\colleagues? Do you find it very easy to make fun of your wife? It shows you in a very bad light. This is one common complaint most wives have. In a crowd you get carried away and want to show yourself off as a very humorous person.

And the target of your unwelcome humor is always your wife. You make fun of her in the worst possible way thinking that you are being funny, while in actual fact you are plain nasty. Your wife becomes angry and resentful against your callous behavior. ‘She is a good wife and takes loads of stress away from me’. Why can’t you for once compliment her and see how much she glows with happiness.

4.I missed you!

You feel lost when your wife is not around don’t you? You feel a vacuum within you when she is not at home. ‘I missed you! This is the best compliment your wife wants to hear from you. Your open comment that you wanted her with you is an emotional compliment she will never outgrow. Say it often and watch your marriage thrive!

5.You are a wonderful mom!

Can you manage your children for a single day? You will be famished trying to cater to their clamoring demands. But have you watched your wife? She more than manages your kids! She guides them, molds them, looks after them with care and is always there for them. Something which you can never dream of!

Do you feel that it is very natural for her to be a good mother and that there is nothing to compliment her about it? Well, she is untiring in her duties, isn’t she? You are a wonderful mom! Compliment her motherly duties!

When you overlook the caring aspect of your wife and think that she is doing her work she feels lost and unloved. But when you compliment her contribution towards the family as valuable she feels completely loved by you. You make her feel that she is appreciated for her worthiness! A hallmark of a good husband!

Mathi, I am sure that the men are glad for these reminders and the wives are singing your praises for doing such good job on their behalf.

I totally agree with what is written, really compliments are those who constantly melt the ice that surrounds sometimes the relationship between man and woman, mostly they should be directed towards man to woman
