If you have any thoughts that learning how to be a better husband is wimpy or not for real men then I have news for you. Just because you want to be a better husband it's not a challenge to your manhood one bit. In fact, in my humble opinion, it’s easier and less manly to watch your marriage crumble right before your eyes while doing nothing about it.

Unfortunately, a lot of husbands tend to get it wrong when it comes to learning how to be a better husband. They make the wrong assumption that a better husband is one who knows how to control his wife and his home better. Their goal is to manipulate and dominate their spouse until she loses her will to fight back and submits to his wishes.

Now, I know that in most marriages both spouses are responsible for the problems they are experiencing in their marriage. I also understand that in some situations only one spouse has the desire to restore or improve the marriage. If you are trying to learn how to be a better husband perhaps your wife doesn’t have the same desire to make your marriage better. Don’t let your wife’s lack of interest deter you from being a better husband.

There are times in a marriage when after a wife has begged, pleaded and tried everything she could to fix a marriage, that she loses hope. Although she might not say it but if that’s the case she no longer believes that your marriage can be saved. Your job is to convince her otherwise.

I have listed below some steps you can take to help you succeed at learning how to become a better husband.

Steps To Becoming A Better Husband

  1. Give your wife a reason to believe in you again. Perhaps you have made and broken promises made to your wife in the past. It doesn’t matter how big or how small the promises were. What matters is that your wife may no longer feel as though she can take you at your word. In her mind, you probably have destroyed her trusts and faith in you. One of the ways to change her mind and heart about you is by starting to do what you say you are going to do. Just be a man of your word and she will start to appreciate you more.
  2. Ask your wife to forgive you. One of the keys to becoming a better husband and soul mate is being able to admit your mistakes and ask your spouse to forgive you. Why not think about some of the areas in your marriage where you haven’t quite been giving 100%. Once you understand these, share these with your wife and apologize to her. At the same time let her know that you intend to be a better husband in these areas.
  3. Ask for her input. Believe it or not your wife probably has a few suggestions for you on how you can be a better husband. Although you might feel as though you know what to do, it can be harmful if you exhaust your time and energy trying to improve in an area that your wife could care less about. Get your wife’s advice and try to make changes that you can live with and that she will be happy with.
  4. Don’t stop working at being a better husband. You might be tempted after a few weeks or months to return to your old ways or habits. Just because your marriage isn’t magically transformed as a result of your changes don’t be discouraged and stop trying. Changing or improving relationships takes a little time. If you stay committed and do what you know is right, things will work out for the best.
  5. Ask your wife how you are doing. You need to know from time to time if the changes you are making are the right ones. If your wife isn’t feeling better about your relationship then talk it over and tweak what you are doing. Learning how to become a better husband is a process.

Marriage is not easy but if you are going to be married, why not be happily married. If you just take a step back and learn how to be the best husband that you can be, I’m sure you will find more peace, joy and happiness in your marriage and home.

There are many more steps you can take to improve your marriage. Please don’t settle for a so-so marriage when you can have so much more. Keep in mind that there are additional resources available to help in marriage restoration.

Remember, you have the keys, the power and the opportunity to learn how to be a better husband and succeed at restoring your relationship.
