Everyone loves to be reminded they are needed and appreciated, especially your husband. A subtle and simple validation of your love and respect for him can go a long way. It brightens his day and yours as well.
To strengthen your relationship with your husband, never let him go one day without being reminded of these six simple things.
1. I respect you
Respect is a strong tool in marriage. It is the foundation needed to develop trust between you and your husband. Respecting him means taking seriously every question he asks and comment he makes. It means you will hear and take his opinions to heart without judgment.
Remind him you are his safe space because you respect him.
2. I trust you
Remind your husband every day you trust him. Provide him with the assurance that he has someone to back him up and be there for him no matter what.
Validate him. Show you are concerned with his needs and you have a concrete faith that he will always act out of love and care. Showing this kind of trust creates an environment of honesty and loyalty.
3. I love you
Let your husband know you love him every single day. It is not a phrase you should say because you have to say it but a phrase you should say because you want to say it.
Love is what drives you to serve, believe, pray, act and adore one another. Remind him you love him, you can’t live without him and he is all you want in this life.
4. I need you
The feeling of being needed is extremely important to foster in a marriage.
Each partner needs reassurance that they are providing something to the other that no one else on this earth can provide. A simple, “I don’t know what I would do without you,” or “You are everything to me,” can prove to be a valuable tool in strengthening your relationship with your husband.
5. I want you
Remind your husband you want him. You want him physically, intimately, emotionally and mentally. You want all of the good things he has to offer. Not only do you want him to be around physically, but you also want to appreciate his thoughts and dreams. You want to create a strong connection on all levels.
6. I believe in you
Be his rock.
Be his support system. Every husband needs to be encouraged and uplifted by his wife. It is a fervent reminder to your husband that you have faith in him and can see all the good potential within him. Help your husband face the day with courage and optimism.
