What Housewives Need From their Husbands

A housewife is the person who takes care of the home while her husband is away earning a living for the family. It can be a difficult role as the housewife relies on the husband to bring home the bacon while she raises the kids and keep the house functional. Hence women require a lot of love and support from their husbands to be able to be a good mother and a happy wife. All of you husbands out there, try to understand the needs of your stay-at-home wives to keep your marriage healthy and happy. Housewives need all sort of things from their husbands so they can continue to be wonderful caregivers and lovers that they are.

1. Appreciation of any kind

Housewives do not enjoy having their efforts taken for granted. It is no easy task cleaning, doing the laundry, cooking, taking care of the children, and all sorts of tasks required to keep a home running seamlessly. A housewife really enjoys if you can show some appreciation by saying thank you or maybe just helping around the house without her requesting for help. Even a small effort from you can make her really really happy. Maybe you can also thank her by taking her out for dinner so she doesn't have to cook for a certain day in the week.

2. Privacy and space

If your wife does not have a lot of time to go out and spend some time with her friends, she may yearn to once in a while. When she does, give her the privacy and space she needs to enjoy herself. Just like you needing to spend time with your buddies, she does too and she would not want you to keep questioning her plans or where she is the same way you wouldn't like it when she keeps questioning you. A wife will normally inform you about where she's going and who she's going to be with so you won't have to worry about her.

3. A good ear

Sometimes, your housewife may be particularly stressed about having a tough day with the kids, or having trouble with coping with too many things to keep an eye on at home. She may want to vent her frustrations to you and when she does, be attentive and listen. It is frustrating to a woman that when she talks to her husband, he's reading the newspaper or watching television and responding to her conversation with a vague 'uhum' or silence. Any wife appreciates a good listener. It would not matter that you cannot help as long as you pay attention to her problems and show some sympathy and support.

Housewives are people too and always do their best to provide a happy home for their husbands to return to at the end of a long day in the office. Show some respect to her and give her what she needs and she will definitely be the happiest wife and willing to do anything to keep you happy too!

Housewives aren't paid because nobody could afford them! We are a priceless breed and you're right; it really helps to be appreciated a little.

You are right, housewives don't get paid but they need a lot of hugs and kisses to be motivated! It helps a lot when the husband and kids show some love to the one who takes care of their needs! I respect all of you housewives out there, you are all doing a tougher job than most! Thanks Heather for your comment!
