If your husband does these 10 things, you hit the marriage jackpot
Posted May 27
Did you hit the marriage jackpot? If you did, you have a husband that does tiny things that make your married life particularly lovely — like these 10 things. If these signs sound familiar, you made the right choice by marrying him.
1. He says “I love you” often
Those three words are easy and simple, but they go unsaid too often in some relationships. If your husband voices his love often, he not only is clear about his affection but he also isn’t afraid of communicating his feelings.
2. He loves his mom
Your mother-in-law was the first woman your husband lived with and loved. If your husband loves and respects his mom, that's a good indication that he’ll treat you with love and respect as well.
3. He still flirts with you
Flirting is a sign that your husband is still young at heart when it comes to his love for you. If he still does things that give you butterflies or make you smile to yourself, you’re sure to have a happy marriage.
4. He puts you before anyone else (including himself)
Once he committed himself to you, your husband should never look back. If nobody else in his life (not even himself) matters more to him, he’ll definitely always be there for you.
5. He makes mundane tasks fun
Before you got married, you might have heard other couples say that their spouse just makes their life better. Now that you’ve found your one and only, you’ve realized they are right! If even doing the dishes or walking the dog can be fun when you’re doing them together, you married a winner.
6. He encourages you to pursue your dreams
You might dream of travel, a specific career or educational degrees but whatever your dreams are, your mister is there. He not only supports you but he also encourages you.
7. He comforts you when you’re down
Whether you’ve received bad news, you’re feeling overwhelmed with all you have to do or you’re struggling with your body image, your husband should be there to lift you up and hold you close. If he’s your main source of comfort, you’ll be able to overcome whatever life throws at you and your relationship.
8. He’s a hard worker
If your husband puts energy and effort into everything he does (like his career, his hobbies and projects, his schooling and his love for you), congratulations on marrying a hard worker. This is an especially great quality for husbands to have when times get rough and there’s a lot to be done in the family.
9. He surprises you
Whether he plans a spontaneous trip, brings a small gift home or makes you breakfast, your fabulous husband is showing his love through surprises.
10. He gives you compliments
Words of affirmation are a very important aspect within a healthy relationship. If he compliments you on your achievements and lets you know he’s proud of you, he’s a superb husband.
If this list reminded you of your husband, you married a man who helps make your life full of joy. Remember to return the favor and do the same things for him. Is there anything else your husband does that you would add to the list?
