Every woman will (should) meet their future husband at some point in their lives, but for many of them, this fact is causing some discomfort. It is not the pressure that they won’t meet a person like that, but because many of them were single for a longer period of time. Most of them have used this period to think more about their desires and values and what they need from their future partner too.
They are well-aware that some of these things are not very realistic, some are essential while others will appear once they start their relationship. This is a short list of things every woman usually needs from her future husband.
1. Listening and reading loving things dedicated to them
Who doesn’t like to read loving words? Sometimes even the simplest phrases like “I love you”, “I need you” written on a piece of paper once a week will make any woman happy. Since we are living in the 21st century sending an SMS message is fine too.
2. Finding a balance when it comes to incomes
It’s not all about money and most women today are financially independent, but every person is afraid of situations where they lack money. In addition, most of them start saving money once they start earning, but the global financial crisis made everyone a little bit worried. That’s why the future hubby needs to be rational and calm down his woman when the times are rough.
3. Asking a woman’s father for her hand before marriage
Of course, her mother should have a say too. For many men and women, this tradition is out of date and there are women who consider it anti-feminist. However, the vast majority of them actually like it. We all know that the parents will say YES anyway and this is a good opportunity to meet the parents of the future bride.
4. Women need some space too
This is especially true if the woman was raised as the only child in the home. They are sometimes spoiled, but in most cases, they are strong and independent. What all of them have in common is the me-time (the time when they were alone) and this is something that is really important to them. This doesn’t mean that the partner will sometimes be boring, but they simply need some alone time every once in a while.
5. Listening to their long monologues and discussions
It is true that women sometimes over-communicate especially when they are upset or they feel insecure. They are fully aware of that, but they simply need to channelize their emotions and say what they think aloud.
6. Making love…a lot of it
Most women love kids, so yes, they want many babies. While it is true that passion fades a little bit of overtime (this is especially true when you already have children), but the feeling of physical connection should not stop. Women want to be viewed as attractive all the time. If they are appreciated enough they will make efforts to take care of themselves and their husband too.
7. Accepting the fact that they use many beauty care products
It is not unusual for women to have several shampoos, hair conditioners, nail polishes in different colors, many lipsticks, etc. This is something that men should understand and accept as natural (although it probably isn’t).
8. Telling them that they are not fat
Most women will probably increase their weight over time, but this doesn’t mean that husbands need to remind them about that. There is a more gentle way to say that and compliments work better than critics. Women appreciate that.
9. Accepting the fact that women cry when they watch movies
There is nothing embarrassing about that. This doesn’t make them weak or desperate. They are just very emotional when the movie is sad.
10. Being straightforward
If there is one thing that all women don’t like, that’s sugarcoating and avoiding the truth. Men should always tell their opinion when they are around the woman. They need to express their feelings and emotions too. Sharing things increases the bond.
11. Planning date nights
Being in a serious relationship doesn’t mean that the date nights are over and that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your home. Sure, staying home is great, but going to dinner once in a while can be fun too. Selecting even one day in a week for this purpose should be okay.
12. Having a mother who likes them
Women want to be accepted by their future husband’s mother. They don’t have to be best friends, but they need to feel positive vibes whenever they are around their mothers. This is something that men can encourage.
13. Being passionate
If the spark in anyone’s life is lost, then something is wrong. Women love men who are passionate about the things they do. This doesn’t mean that they can forget about them, but being dedicated to something else for a certain period of time is fine.
14. Being around
It’s not that women are jealous or insecure, but it is better to stay around or at least remind them that you’ll get back when you are not around.
15. Sharing the love
Women need to feel loved and adored. Every woman dreams about a life in which she will feel loved for the rest of her life, not just the first month of her relationship. Many women complain that their partners don’t make them feel loved and this is especially true for those who are married for a long period of time. Men should share their emotions and make their partner feel full, truly, sincerely, and unconditionally loved. They surely know how to express their love, so in return, they expect the same. This is the recipe for long-lasting love and for founding a family that will grow healthy (emotionally and physically) children.
