Sometimes husbands don’t feel like listening. Sitting there listening to your wife for hours for no apparent reason doesn’t always make sense. And it’s exhausting, too. If this is your situation, try to anticipate what your wife would like. What do you think she would want from you? Anticipating and acting on what your wife would like shows her you are listening. She feels heard, and that is a BIG DEAL for women. Do you think she would want a shoulder rub, a foot rub, for you to do the dishes, for you to take out the trash, for you to ask her how her day went, for you to make dinner for her, find out about life insurance premiums, or just bring her a small present for no apparent reason?
What do you think she would want from you? Make a list. Keep it handy. Pick something and do it. Score. Hey, you’re getting good at this. Maybe you should teach a class for the other husbands.
