Every wife wants to know they are loved. Wives are rarely tired of hearing the words “I love you” from their husbands. Yet, what a husband shows his wife can be equally important as telling her. We have all heard that actions speak louder than words. While it may sound cliché, it is true. Husbands that demonstrate these qualities put their marriage first and make their wives feel like the queens that they are. Here are six things wives secretly love about their husbands.

His loyalty.

Fidelity in marriage demands 100 percent commitment and prioritizing your spouse above all else. A good husband knows that it will take effort, work, and sacrifice. But he also knows the reward is sweeter than the price he may feel he has to pay. Loyalty is vital to a happy, healthy, safe, and lasting marriage. Commitment is the foundation of true love. When a man shows dedication in his marriage, his wife feels safe and secure in the union. A loyal husband listens carefully and is attentive. He does not let people or things pull his loyalty away from his wife. Faithful husbands speak highly of their wives, especially when their wives are not around. They also stand up for their wives in all situations. He does not keep secrets from his wife. He is open and honest with his wife about both little and big things. He works to know his wife in a profoundly intimate way.

The way he makes her feel.

A good husband makes his wife feel comfortable. We all worry a lot at the beginning of a relationship about coming off as needy, demanding, or distant. Yet, when you meet the man you want to spend the rest of our life with, usually the worry disappears. You do not have to be “on” around him. You are able just to be yourself. You are also comfortable crying in front of him, yelling in front of him, and even having quiet moments. He has seen the good and the bad, and he still loves you. He feels absolute ease around his wife that cannot always be articulated, analyzed, or explained. There is no better feeling than being relaxed around your spouse.

His ability to listen.

Listening is not an innate ability all people possess. It is a skill that is cultivated. It is a critical quality for couples because the foundation of successful communication is being able to listen to each other honestly. A good husband is a great listener. He pays attention to what you say. He lets you vent, regardless of the subject. A man who truly loves you cares about what you have to say. If listening is ineffective, there will be sparks. If you and your husband are getting into frequent spats, your listening skills may be to blame, not that you chose the wrong partner, or the problem is too difficult.

The romance.

A man who is thoughtful and romantic is a keeper. A good husband is kind and romantic. It is sharing moments, being close, kissing, hugging, going out for meals together, and just generally enjoying being in one another’s arms. He should show you how he is considerate by doing things just to put a smile on your face. He knows it is the little things that count. He does anything he can to make you feel special. A good husband is always sweet. He is kind and loving because he cares about you and your feelings. He is affectionate because he cannot help himself. An important quality to note is that he is sweet to you in private and in public.

Going the extra mile.

A man who would do anything to make you happy is a keeper. A good husband makes sacrifices for you because he knows that it will make you happy. He plans things he knows you will enjoy. He’s willing to do anything for you because he loves you. Everyone has priorities that range from work obligations to maintaining relationships with family and friends. A guy who wants to be with you will always make that man who would do anything for you. Nothing less.

His appreciation.

A good husband appreciates you and all the things you do. Women love when a man makes them feel loved, wanted, and appreciated. This is a profoundly important piece of the puzzle. A good man will always remind you how much you mean to him. Men can be less communicative or affectionate than women are, but this does is not an excuse. If someone truly loves you, you will know it and feel it. If you do not, you will be wondering all the time if they do. It would be best if you never committed your time, energy, and effort into someone who would not give you the same in return. Many of us learn the hard way that being with someone who does not appreciate you can make you feel more alone than being single does.

Women love these qualities in their men. When husbands do these things for their wives, it shows how much they value them. If the man you are with puts in the effort, let him know how much you love and appreciate them. We should not take our partner’s love for granted.
