Things Men Want From Their Wives


Men's needs that often hurt men's morale include issues such as the need for comfort, the need for praise, sexual pleasure, lack of affection, and… Here we want to focus more on men's secrets.

Men Hide Secrets From Their Wives

Men do not naturally function like women in expressing feelings and emotions. They often try to stay calm when some sensitive problems and issues arise and do not let anyone know about their turmoil, but these men's secrets may shape a bitter future for them after marriage and starting a life together. Men are sure to improve their relationship if they are confident in having an honest conversation with their spouse.

1. Praise Your Spouse's Power

Note that if you praise your spouse for his or her strength, he or she will feel empowered and superior. They always like to look strong, so women should praise the power of their husbands because men need their spouse attention. For example, ask him to open the can or help move heavy items. This request eliminates the feeling of insecurity in you and gives him confidence. Here, instead of ordering, you energize him with just a simple compliment.

"Happy is the wife who learns the art of praising her husband in public."

2. Always be Tidy for Your Spouse

Men always like to see their wives regularly and make sure she is not sick because they like to have strong families.


3.Need to Relax

Women can both talk and listen while they rest, but men cannot do more than one thing at a time. Men's brains are linear and move from job to job, in addition to communicating at work during the day exhausts their brains, so they need time and opportunity to be alone to regain their composure.

"Relax, you don't have to get everything done today."

4. Give him his Freedom

Everyone needs freedom from the relationship from time to time. If he’s out with the boys, let him have his man time and don’t be tempted to constantly text him with trivial questions.

According to a 2013 study, women feel more positive and stable when texting frequently, but men who frequently receive texts from their partners feel less satisfied in the relationship.

Men who frequently receive texts from their partners feel less satisfied in the relationship.
Constantly texting your husband can be seen as a subtle controlling behaviour, which robs him of his privacy and freedom. That’s what it can feel like to them at least. It’s a good example of the differences between what each gender needs from each other. Yes, it can feel scary not knowing every detail of what’s going on in his day, but try to let go and use the free time to focus on yourself. How about practising some self-care?



Journey to love and memorable marriage begins with respect. One of the best ways a wife can show her husband that she loves and respects her.

You can also show respect by:

Avoid any negative feedback about his thoughts and opinions.
His upcoming plans are being considered.
Don't use "eye roll" if you agree with it.
Generally be positive, grateful, and considering his wishes and needs.

6.Energetic wives

Men like to have strong and energetic wives. Paying attention to this request will both keep you healthy and pay attention to his concerns.


7. Stop Complaining and Victimizing Herself

A loving woman knows that men do not like to be a toy in the hands of others. They do not want other people to misuse them, manipulate them or try to exploit them through bullying. The attitude of ordinary women is that when the husband steps on the doorstep, they start complaining and crying for luck. They have a complete list of problems and the opportunity to repeat this list without looking at the palace. Such women make the house hell. Instead of paying attention to them, the husband starts to move away from them.

8.The desire to maintain peace and reconciliation after small conflicts

Contrary to what women think, men can not repair their relationship immediately after a conflict, while this is not the case, women are afraid of their husband's loneliness and unhappiness and try to build peace in their life together. Take a deep breath and talk to your spouse about something specific without getting angry. Ask him to speak honestly and thank him for his honesty.

9. Don't Look At Them as Forgetful

Men think they have special skills in managing financial matters and can manage life financially. If they feel that they can not support themselves financially, they will fail. For example, if your husband could not pay the bill, he may hide it. Men do not like their wives to look at them as forgetful.

Although I don't think we men are very mysterious. We have no secrets at all

We are simple ... simple ..! Very simple!

dashingscorpio - good advice.

Men also want to (feel physically desired) by their wives.

That's completely different from having sex when (he) initiates.

It means (she) initiates sex with him and is playful/flirtatious at times. You're not doing (him) a favor or a "wifely duty".

I suspect one of the reasons why some men watch porn and go to strip clubs is to indulge in the fantasy of having women {crave/desire them} because most men do not get that in real life unless they're a rich/famous celebrity of some kind.

It's one thing to play cat and mouse games when dating but once two people get married and commit to one another it shouldn't be a situation where "the man" always has to initiate sex/romance.

He'll still "respect you" in the morning. You're his wife! :)

Thank you for sharing these observations, Munawar. I guess you need more women to read this than men, so they can learn all about us.
