Your husband probably says he loves you every day and you can feel it in the little things he does. But sometimes, life can offer many distractions that you suddenly feel unsure if he is still as invested in his love for you as he once was.
But there are signs that can reassure you that despite the struggles of life, the love is still there! Here’s four of the simplest but sweetest ones.
1. He’s honest even if it hurts
A husband who really loves his wife knows that being blunt with love is important. He is not fond of sugarcoating the hard truths. He’s honest even with the simple things, like where he goes with friends or when he just doesn’t feel like talking. There’s no need to walk on eggshells or to suppress his emotions, because he values and respects his wife enough not to hide anything from her.
2. He fights for his wife
A man who loves his wife knows it’s important to always remember that they are on the same team. Life isn’t easy and a loving husband knows the importance of being supportive and rooting for his wife through all of life’s challenges.
He’ll defend you and believe in you because he loves you and only wants the best for you.
3. He fights with his wife
Yes, you read that right. A husband who truly loves his wife is not afraid to argue with her or tell her when she’s being unreasonable. He’s willing to confront his wife, in a firm but loving way, at a proper place and time. Though it’s important that he’s not constantly upset or picking fights. A loving husband is motivated by the need to work things out and to build a stronger bond with his wife.
4. He truly listens
We can’t stress this enough: good husbands are good listeners. They hear their wives out without interruption or judgment.
Listening also involves responding with deep understanding with patience. They are attentive, truly present, and deeply invested in their wives’ happiness. Keeping quiet can often be more romantic than any words of love could ever be.
When a man loves his wife, his ego takes the backseat. He is not too prideful to admit when he’s wrong. He’s open to loving feedback and is always open to improving himself and his relationship.
