Newlywed and still groping in the dark of how it is to be a good wife? Or you have probably been married for many years but it seems like you still have to learn a lot about being a real partner to your husband. Either way, I hope this list can help you be the best version of this special role of being ‘wifey’.
So, what are the qualities that make a good wife material? Here’s what you should know
1. Caring and compassionate
A good wife is sensitive to the family’s needs, and does her best to provide a solution. She understands when her husband is frustrated, and tries to make him happy.
Her caring disposition makes sure the family does not lack in any aspect of life.
2. Encourages her husband
One good wife should be acting as a source of encouragement and support.
In both good and bad times, one of the qualities of a good wife is to encourage and show her husband that he is loved. When men experience challenging times, they don’t see their value.
However, a good wife reminds them of the great worth they possess.
3. Respects her husband
Make sure she is respectful because a successful marriage thrives on respect.
In addition, a good wife appreciates her husband’s effort, and the husband reciprocates with respect and love.
4. Puts her family first
The family’s needs and wants top her priorities, and she’s not apologetic about it. A good wife goes the extra mile to ensure her home is comfortable for her husband and kids.
5. Husband’s best friend and lover
A good wife does not cheat because her husband is her one and only lover.
In addition, she could have close friends, but her husband remains her best friend. If there are any pending issues, she talks first to her husband, who doubles as her best friend.
6. Doesn’t infringe on her husband’s personal space
A good wife will understand that everyone needs their personal space.
When she notices her husband needs some alone time, she respects his decision. She is also clairvoyant as she knows the right time to warm up to her husband and cheer him up.
7. She gives a listening ear
A good wife knows a listening ear aids effective communication.
Hence, instead of just hearing, she listens to understand her husband. When her husband wants to discuss with her, she keeps all distractions at bay to focus on him.
8. Celebrates her husband’s achievement
A good wife doesn’t see her husband’s achievement as a means to compete. Rather, she appreciates him and acknowledges his efforts.
If there are children, she seizes the opportunity to use her husband’s success to motivate them.
9. She is honest
Lasting marriages are built on honesty and effective communication. There’s a twist to being honest; you don’t have to say anything plainly. For instance, if you don’t like his shoes, you can replace them by getting new pairs.
