If you want to learn how to be a good husband, you should seek advice from men who have been there and done it. I’m one of those men.
I got married to my high school sweetheart in 2003. Truth be told, I knew I wanted to marry her from our first date. She’s the perfect woman. Unfortunately, I am far from the perfect man.
It turns out that learning to be a good husband is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. I found out quickly that being the perfect spouse requires daily commitment and re-commitment to the principles of being a good person, a good partner, and a good man.
This blog is going to teach you how to be a better husband. My goal is to share with men everywhere the steps required to turn yourself from a loser into the ideal husband. It isn’t as easy as it may sound, and I find that I still have stubborn habits and flaws that try to rear their heads from time to time.
A very basic breakdown of what it means to be a good husband goes something like this:
1. Don’t be so “male”
I can be a man without being “male.” Being male in our society means being hard-hearted and ignorant. You have to break the cycle, starting with yourself.
2. Think like a woman
If you want to please a woman you have to put yourself in their shoes, plain and simple.
3. Relax and enjoy yourself
I don’t remember my own father ever taking a break, having a belly laugh, or really enjoying his family. That’s what we have to do to be good husbands–learn to love our family for what they are.
Look to this space in the future for more advice on being the husband your wife wishes for.
