The Good Wife

We have all seen the 50’s article on how to be a good wife. See The Good Wife Article  Very outdated of course. There is no template/set of rules/list of checkboxes for wives to download, read about in Cosmo or any other place (except the Bible). What it takes to be a good wife is to respond to your partner’s needs. Every man is slightly different. WE do have some things in common for the most part, with some slight variances. We need our homes to be peaceful places. We need some alone time to decompress from our workday. We need sex. We need respect and admiration from the most important person in our lives. We need words of affirmation, especially in public. One husband I know simply needs to know that his wife appreciates him and all he does for her. We need a partner, not a slave or a boss. We need an attractive spouse. HINT: What you think is attractive, and what he thinks might not be the same. Ask him what he likes. We are really kinda simple. See /mens-brains-vs-womens-brains/

We have also heard “happy wife = happy life”. Why isn’t there a comparable saying for us husbands? So here is a new one I just invented. Moderately satisfied dude = husband in a good mood. Might take awhile for that one to catch on, but here is the point. We are easy to please. We don’t require magical sexual feats of epic proportions. We don’t require gourmet meals. We don’t require lacy teddies (not every night anyway). Long T-shirts work just as well. Less makeup is better. Ponytails have their allure. We like kisses on the cheek and holding hands in the car. And we LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to see you smile and make you laugh. Nothing is more beautiful to him than your smile. NOTHING!

Look, let’s be honest. You already know how to seduce him, that is how you tricked him into marying you in the first place. 🙂 As simple as it was to net this guy, keeping him satisfied is just as simple. Slow down. Calm down. Relax. Chill. Smile at him in your ponytail and long t-shirt and he will be at peace in the world.
