How To Train Your Wife!
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Some men can be married for 38 years, and counting, and still not be wise on how to train their wife. It’s something worth doing however. Not only is it romantic and adventurous to train your wife it’s also a lot of fun!

It must be said, however, that if you’re going to even attempt to do this you need to do it right! Trust me, there are a fair percentage of women who don’t want to be trained. They think it’s going to be boring, uncomfortable and kind of a guy orientated thing.

This is probably a misconception due to the fact that traditionally this was a preoccupation of the male kind. Some men will spend hours in its pursuit, even when there are no obvious benefits, and their wife sees that it’s getting them nowhere fast.

Why Train Your Wife?

Convincing your wife that you’re going to train her, and she should go along with it, is half the journey. Once you get past this point you’ll both find that there are some great benefits.

A little research is likely to be all the convincing she’ll need. The training a loving husband will suggest is romantic, sophisticated and relaxing. It offers great opportunity for hand holding, kissing and exploring some beautiful territory that the couple has likely never journeyed on together before.

Where My Husband First Trained Me

The first time my husband trained me was in Malaysia. We were backpacking at the time and really not much more than newly weds.

He booked the two-day journey from Kuala Lumpur up to Bangkok, Thailand. It was a cultural experience I will remember forever. I felt like he was sharing an exclusive adventure with me. Breathtaking scenery, Thai food (swimming in chili) served to our seats and our bunks folded down with little privacy curtains for the swaying night ahead.

Not only was it a convenient way to travel, the experience was exhilarating.

The second time my husband trained me was in Japan. We rode from Tokyo to Osaka on the Shinkansen. This is testament to how different every training experience can be.

Streaking through the countryside in luxury and comfort at incredible speeds, it seemed ridiculous that I would have resisted this incredible experience in our marriage.

How Seriously Will You Train Your Wife?

The best and most glamorous training experiences are the ones my husband is yet to take me on. I’ve peeked online and seen some that are available. These trains are the ultimate luxury with sophisticated antique and timber fittings, gourmet dining and every convenience of the world most exclusive hotels.

Journeys through Paris, Rome, Venice, Vienna and onward. Travelling through some of the world’s most majestic scenery and on to enticing destinations’ of historical heritage.

There are other wonderful options in most corners of the world that fit various time and budget restraints.

  • The Canadian Rockies Train
  • Orient Expresses
  • Grand Canyon Train Rides
  • British Pullman from London to Leeds Castle
  • Nullabor Plain (Australia) when the wildflowers are in bloom
  • Danube Express
  • Mexico's 390-mile-long Copper Canyon Train

For every one of these suggestions I’m sure you could find six others with hardly a click of your mouse.

So husbands! Why wait years to train your wife?! She may not realize it, until you take the initiative, but she’s going to love it!


Street Talk

I've got to admit.....I was initially offended by the article but intrigued enough to want to read. Then I spent the first paragraph, or so, building up my feeling of being offended. Then the smile came. 'Train'.....never saw it coming. This is definitely a way I would enjoy being 'trained'. Thank you for your clever article.

I must admit Becky it was intended to be a cheeky article. Rob was challenging me and asking me if there was anything I couldn't write on. His suggestion was an article on how to train your wife and I wrote this just for him... or his wife! ;-) Glad you enjoyed it... your response was what I was aiming for!

Geez, and here I thought you meant the other kind of training. I think that one is against the law. Maybe something along the lines of " How to train your Dragon". Yup, I've trained my wife too. Great Smokey Mountain Train Ride. A good time was had by all. So, just perhaps, she trained me instead.

Love it, Heather. You got me like the rest, and I say that with pride as we all need a little humbling now and then. Thanks for the enjoyable article. I've never traveled by train but hope to cross the US on one someday. What a beautiful way to travel.

Like the others who commented before me, I thought this article was going to go a completely different direction. I had to laugh once I understood what you were actually going to talk about. I think it would be great to travel by train! You can enjoy the scenery instead of the traffic.
