Marriage Advice – Do You Know What Your Wife Needs From You?

If you are looking for marriage advice, chances are your relationship is facing some challenges. However, before you start searching for tips on how to save your marriage, the first thing you should do is to think about what your wife really wants from you. Do you know?

Many people, especially men, have the misconception that women love material things and so they shower their wives with expensive cars, jewelry, etc. They thought their wives would be happy with a credit card in hand so that they can buy all that they want. They do not mind their spouses spending the whole afternoon shopping.

However, they normally do not accompany their wives and head off to develop their hobbies instead. They prefer to spend their precious free moments carrying out activities such as fishing, watching football games or just spending time with their buddies. They thought that their wives are just as happy with their shopping spree. Thus, when their relationship seems to be drifting apart, they begin to wonder why.

The solution is really very simple. Men are not giving their wives what they want and the top woman's need is very inexpensive but precious; TIME! Yes, what your wife wants from you is your time spent with her.

I am not saying that you must not spend time on your hobbies or with your buddies anymore. However, in the midst of your busy schedule, how often do you and your wife really spend time communicating with each other? What had happened to those days before marriage when you could hardly leave each other?

For couples who have children, the most likely topics that occupy the dinner table each day are events about your kids, from fussing over them when they are younger, to arranging for transportation as they grow older. When was the last time both of spend a romantic evening together, talking about your needs and goals?

No doubt, with work, housework and children in the picture, expecting you to devote 100% of your time on your wife would be asking too much. But setting aside a date night where both of you take a stroll in the nearby park, doing nothing else but holding hands and talking sweet nothings to each other is definitely not too much to ask for. You can also take the weekend off and go for a short vacation together, without the kids.

If you are really serious about saving your marriage, then it is high time you squeeze in some time in your schedule to include a date night at least once a week and go for a weekend getaway at least twice yearly. So, the next thing you should do after reading this article is to find an evening when you can have a date with your wife. There is no use looking for marriage advice if you are not going to take actions!
