12 Ways To Know FOR SURE Your Husband Is Happy In Your Marriage
Don’t get caught off guard!
We call it “dropping the bomb” syndrome and it usually follows the same pattern: One partner believes everything is going along fine when suddenly, the other spouse announces the marriage is over — finished, done, period.
It turns out — things were far from fine. There was a lot of denial going on, a lot of saying “yes” when you meant “no,” and a lot of unexpressed anger simmering just below the surface. When that simmer reaches a boil, the bomb drops.
While women initiate divorce more often than men, I find husbands are more likely to walk out (end things) unexpectedly, leaving their wives in shock, disbelief and anger at being left. The resulting collateral damage on children and extended family only widens the circle of pain.
How can you really know if your husband is happily married? Is there a way to tell if your marriage is bomb proof? When he says “I love you” can you believe it?
Here are 12 powerful ways to know your husband is truly happy in your marriage:
1. He feels noticed and appreciated him. Research show men want to feel appreciated and how much they do (or don’t) is a prime measure of how happily married they are.
2. He knows he can confide in you without being judged or criticized. This kind of self-disclosing communication is crucially important because it builds trust and commitment.
3. He knows that you desire him because you express that desire sexually. No matter how much a man enjoys sex, it’s a turnoff to feel like he’s the only one interested.
4. He likes how he feels about himself when he is with you. Your affectionate attention outside of the bedroom, (compliments, praise, hugs, warm touches, saying “I love you”) makes him feel good about himself and endears you to him.
