How to Please Your Wife (From the Wife’s Point of View)

Men have been wondering how to please their wives. This might give them a little insight into what makes us (the wives) happy.

I know that you married or committed (not to a mental hospital, but to a beautiful woman) men out there sometimes need a little help when it comes to understanding women.  Well, here’s your chance and the time is now.  Stop guessing what we want from you.  Read on….

  • We do love to receive flowers, balloons, or gifts on a special ocassion such as a birthday, anniversary, or after a great date.  Never ask if we would like flowers, etc.  That’s like us asking you if you would like to go watch the game with your friends.  You’re not going to say no and either is she.
  • When you see 2 or 3 trash bags piling up in the kitchen, please offer to take them out instead of just staring at them when you walk by.  Your wife ( and very busy mother of your children) probably hasn’t had a chance to take them out.
  • Don’t take your wife for granted.  Learn to appreciate the little things she does.  She’ll treat you nicer and will be in a way better mood when she feels appreciated.
  • Don’t assume that “going out” (without the kids) means going to get a quick burger and beer.  It may be what you like, but she may be in the mood for something a little nicer. 
  • Be courteous and don’t always blast your favorite music in the car.  You might like the country favorites radio station but she may want to listen to some 80’s music.  Don’s assume. Ask. 
  • Don’t treat your female co-workers better than your wife.  You may laugh with them, share jokes, go out to lunch, and work on the same long projects with short deadlines with them but, who puts up with your terrible, short-tempered mood when you get home? It’s not your co-workers, its your wife.
  • If you have children, offer to watch them one night out of the week so she can have some time to herself to catch up with her friends, grab a coffee, or just relax.
  • Compliment your wife in what she’s wearing, her new haircut, or how great her legs look in that skirt.  Always gear your compliment towards her, not on what she’s wearing. For example, say “I love how you look in that new dress” instead of “I love your new dress”. 
  • If you see more than 10 dirty dishes in the sink, please offer to help wash them.  But you need to say it like this.” Honey, would you like some help with the dishes?  I can wash them so you can have more time to make dinner.” Or you can offer to make dinner while she washes the dishes.  Don’t just waltz into the kitchen and start all the clatter of pots and pans as they are being washed. You’ll sound frustrated and upset at the fact that there are dirty dishes that you have to wash.  This makes a wife feel unappreciated, resentful, and ready to strike back at any comment that you will have about the dishes.
  • Please pick up after yourself.  Don’t leave a dirty glass or plate on the floor by the recliner you were sitting on while watching the game.  Kindly put them in the sink (or dishwasher) on one of your many beer trips to the refrigerator.  Also, don’t leave your dirty clothes on the floor by the shower. Pick them up and place them in the hamper. 
  • Offer to take the car to get it’s timely oil change.  Do this especially if you have kids.  It is very difficult to sit and wait in a strange place for an hour and a half with two hyper children and a baby. 
  • Offer to run errands for her when she doesn’t have time to.  Take the pants to the cleaners, the DVDs back to the rental store, and do some grocery shopping if necessary.

Believe me, guys, any little bit of help goes a long way.  Your wife will truly love you for it!

    i do all of this already and my wife is still mean. She believes all men clean, take care of the kids, and handle all the financing. I take the trash out, clean the kitchen daily, do the laundry, get the kids ready for school,take them to school, pick them up on Mondays, run errands, bring her special gifts that she yells at me for. Any ideas how I can get the love of my life to love me back?

    #2 and #6 – you need to have them read “Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands” by Dr. Laura. They will roll their eyes and be offended when you give it to them, but if they want a better relationship, that’s the way to do it.

    why is it that the author assumes all husbands are beer drinking, sports watching losers?

    my wife and I both work very hard at keeping the other happy, but still sometimes we both get in bad moods or emotional ruts. the key is not to always kiss @$$ like this article suggests, the key is for both of you to be willing to compromise your own happiness for the sake of your partner’s happiness.


    and if you treat you wife like a queen and she still walks all over you, try treating her like she treats you and see how she likes that, maybe afterward she’ll have more respect for the nice you.

    I have been an ass to my wife for so long and take her for granted. I didn’t mean to do that. I love my wife darely never be so mean to the mother of your children.

    Better to love then being lonely think about that. When you wake up in the morning say i love you to your wife and thank her for the clean house and an dinner when you come home from work.

    @trying- pleasing your wife from thousands of miles away is the easy part. Ofcourse all is fine when u spend just 30 mins or max 2 hours a day on the telecon.

    Try living in day in and out; without which (and yes speaking for all) – We don’t think u r qualified atall to comment on this article… Grow-up dude.. Live in the present realityto voice your opinion, not celebrate peace of mind when u r thousands of miles away.

    Look its good to be nice to your wife and all but you still have to show her that you wear pants in the house. So, my suggestion is this….be a real man and don\\\’t do all the stuff everyday, just do one or two things. I read this article and see all these ppl that do every thing in the house. Hell no wonder your wifes are treating you like crap, thats cause they know you don\\\’t have the balls to stand up for yourself…women want a man to tell them what to do and not be a panzy and do it for them. Then you can reward them later by doing one job here or there or even giving them pleasurable items….but main thing is stop being the woman of the house and start being the man.
