  1. 1
    Attend to the physical and sexual needs of your husband.
    One of the basic needs of a man is sexual fulfillment. Like every other woman, you might have taken care of the children and made delicious food for your hubby, but that isn't all that it takes. Your every effort goes in vain when you do not fulfill your husband's sexual needs.

    Make your home feel comfortable for your husband.
    Home is a place where people sit back and relax. Welcome your husband by saying pleasant words rather than ignoring him and giving first priority to your respective work. When he comes home, tell him words that can make his mood better. You can say words like, "Honey, I missed you so much. Thank God, you are home now. I love you."

    You should respect the needs of your husband.
    It could be his sexual needs, his social needs, spiritual needs, or financial needs. You should be sensitive to your husband's every need. Most men do not talk about problems. They tend to keep to themselves and try to solve it without hassling their partners. You should be very aware of this.

    Tell him every decision that you make or ask him for his advice before doing anything.
    You are a team. Both of you are partners in life so any major decision should be consensus. It will not make any of you a prisoner, or someone who just follows his/her spouse's decisions. Instead, it will make your life happier. As the head of the family, your husband has the right to know and decide with you on any major issues that your family is into.

    Take care of yourself.
    Your husband loves you. That's proven when he asked you to marry him and become part of his life. However, you do not leave everything to love. You should always see to it that you still look good and presentable. Their is a high chance that the first thing that caught your husband's eye on you is your physical appearance. Do both of yourselves a favor by taking care of your body. You have to look good for your husband, and most importantly, for yourself.

    A baby can always bring extra happiness to a family.
    If you can, and both of you agree to it that it is on the right time, then try to conceive a baby. However, do not put pressure on yourselves. A baby will be a source of extra joy, but an absence of a child should not take out any joy from your marriage. You married each other because you both love each other company. A baby is a great bonus but not having one should not spoil your marriage.

Questions and Answers

New things to try to make your husband happy when your relationship seems ho-hum?

Boredom visits every couple's married life once in a while. This can be critical because it can either break or make a relationship. If you think that you and your husband are already in this phase of your relationship, here are some tips that you can try to turn the situation around.

  • Space – There is more to life than just being with each other all the time. Be with your friends and other family members independently to help yourselves grow. This will make each of you a better team player. Being away from each other will also make you miss and long for each other even more. Make it a habit to take time off with other people, so you can avoid boredom knocking on your door.
  • Travel – Going away on a vacation with your husband will give both of you a very nice break. Stress can make both or one of you grumpy, which will likely result in quarrels. Go to a place where there is less, or no, distractions or stress. Being in a solemn place will help you think clearly and make smart decisions. Enjoy a relaxing evening view and think back to the old days when you were younger and still having fun. This should make you feel refreshed and stronger to face the challenges of a married life again when you get back from vacation.
  • Try new recipes – Like the old saying goes, the best way to a man's heart is through his stomach. This may sound a bit shallow, but it is still, and always will, be true. Surprising your husband with food that he is not used to seeing on the table can make a lot of difference. A different recipe for dinner can make him stay at the table longer, which will give both of you more time to talk and share your experiences from the day. Remember that communication is a very important key in a successful marriage. If you are thinking that food can't really help lighten up a relationship, try this suggestion and see the results for yourself.
  • Look back – Take your husband down the memory lane. Cook a good breakfast meal for him on a day off and invite him to take a look at your old pictures. Remind him of your fun stories and experiences in the past. Looking back at your wedding pictures is also a great idea. Tell him how you felt when he proposed to you, and reminisce on how excited you were, yet nervous at the same time, on your wedding day. You can also take him back to the times when you faced problems and talk about how you got through it. These small efforts makes you realize how far the relationship has come and will give you more strength to deal with even bigger challenges in the future.
