How Does A Man Show Love To His Wife?
I have noticed that most things in life have an "Easy" answer, but doing it is actually very difficult. You can read all the books you want, about how to be creative with showing affection, buying her gifts, spending a crazy amount of time with her, complimenting her on everything and anything. You could read that you, the man of the house, needs to wait on your wife like she is queen of the world. While she does nothing for you, or the other way around.
My wife and I are very happy in our marriage and this is how we do it.
How Does She Interpret Love
An important aspect to look at is, in what ways does your wife respond most positively to your love and the ways you choose to show her that you love her. Some woman love getting gifts, big or small, it doesn't matter they just love it and feel the most love when they get something. Other examples of showing love are spending quality time with her, saying words of affirmation to her, doing acts of service special to her, and of course physical touch.
It's up to you, as the man, to communicate with your wife and figure out what means the most to her. My wife and I would rather spend time with one another, than get gifts for each other. Words of affirmation are also very important to us. When she irons me clothes or makes me lunch, she is doing an act of service for me. I respond with words of affirmation, telling her how thankful I am that she did those things for me. You could also compliment her on the way she looks or anything else.
How Do You Interpret Love
Now that you figured out what means the most to her, you need to tell her what means the most to you. A relationship has two people in it, your happiness is just as important as hers. Sex is always an important factor in any relationship. If this is your or even your wife's primary way of feeling the love. You both need to make yourselves more available to feel the love.
I got these ideas from the book
