Wives, Don’t Punish Your Husband For Being Visual

Christian Post Blog, Marriage Monday Tip Of The Day from Shaunti Feldhahn

August 24, 2015

Welcome to Marriage Mondays! Each Monday, join me as I share my top findings on the little, eye-opening things about men, women, and relationships that make a big difference in creating great marriages.

Tip #57: Women, don’t punish your husband for being visual

I couldn’t believe it when I saw one wife’s comment about what she did when she found that her husband had been viewing pornography. Understandably shocked and hurt, she next did something I found hard to understand. She not only refused to have sex with him; she also put on 150 pounds. Just to make sure he got her point that viewing porn was not okay. FULL POST

Ladies, Showing Him That You Want Sex Is More Important Than How Much Sex You Have

Welcome to Marriage Mondays! Each Monday, join me as I share my top findings on the little, eye-opening things about men, women, and relationships that make a big difference in creating great marriages.

Tip #56: Women, signal that you want sex; that is more important than how often you’re having it.

Ladies, although there are certainly exceptions, we know men tend to think about sex more than we do. Most of us do care about intimacy, and we certainly want to fulfill that need for our husbands. But we also get tired, busy, and just don’t think about sex as often. And we may not realize that that this can convey a really discouraging message: You’re not desirable. FULL POST

Tip #54: When you’re seeing the negative in your spouse, avoid people who pile on – and spend time with encouragers instead

While I was in the middle of my research for The Surprising Secrets of Highly Happy Marriages I ran across an old friend who was in a difficult place with her husband of 20 years. He was a great guy in many ways, but had become depressed and withdrawn following a series of job difficulties, costly mistakes, and a season of long hours with demanding clients. I could see the tears in my friend’s eyes as she recounted that he had also become irritable, unpleasant, and was now snapping at her for the littlest of things. FULL POST

Tip 53: Men, When Your Wife Worries Give Her Your Understanding, Not Your Frustration

Guys, I know this is a huge shocker, but…. women’s brains are wired differently than men’s. I know there are times when you as a husband probably feel completely baffled by your wife’s thoughts and actions. One man recently shared with me that he didn’t understand why his wife worried so much about all sorts of things; it made him feel like she didn’t trust him. FULL POST

Tip: 51: Women, if your husband is grumpy and withdrawn, try compliments, not complaints

Ladies, does your man seem to be doing everything right outside of the house, but at home he is often grumpy and withdrawn? Does he seem to be pleasant to everyone but you? Does he get upset over the littlest things you do and say? Do you feel like you are being ignored? If you are nodding yes, yes, yes, then here’s a news flash for you: these are all signs of a man who is absolutely starving for affirmation. FULL POST
