Fifteen Ways to Please Your Wife

How beautiful you are, my darling, how beautiful you are!
Song of Solomon 1:15

Dennis Rainey, FamilyLife Today offered the following suggestions for husbands on ways to please your wife. While many of these actions won’t come easy for some of us, they are all easy to do and cost nothing (except for filling her car). The book entitled Love Languages by Gary Chapman identifies five primary love languages. They are (1) Quality time, (2) Words of Affirmation, (3) Touch, (4) Gifts, and (5) acts of service. Most of the five are touched upon somewhere in this list. Discover which expression of love on the list means most to your wife.

1. Hug and kiss her every morning before leaving the house.
2. Go to bed at the same time she does.
3. Brush her hair while complimenting her eyes and appearance.
4. When she's studying herself in the mirror, tell her, "You are so beautiful."
5. Evict late-night television from your bedroom.
6. During mid-afternoon, call or send her an email to ask how her day's going.
7. Try your hand at making breakfast on Saturday morning.
8. Put gas in her car, vacuum the floor mats, and clean the windows.
9. Write her a short love letter. List several ways she has blessed you this year.
10. Resurrect common courtesies: Hold the car door open. Offer her your arm.
11. Put the toilet seat down.
12. If you hear her engaged in a tough situation, compliment the way she handled it.
13. When you're together in a crowd, find a way to brag on her.
14. Help her put the kids to bed.
15. Pray with her every day. Every day!

If this sounds like a lot of work or if it's out of character for the kind of guy you are, do it anyway. You'll get better at it. And I guarantee your wife will love you for it.
Please send me your list of the ways you have shown your wife appreciation and love.
