Trying to Keep Your Husband Happy? Look No Further!

It comes natural to most females to have that mother instinct, that certain feeling that when something is wrong with your children you know it. Well you must use this same instinct with your mate.

You can read his body language, listen to his words and read between the lines when needed. Look into his eyes, watch his facial expressions. Just make sure you always notice if his habits are changing. Keep in tune with his needs and wants.

Be aware if he is not talking as much? Is he coming home later than usual? Is he drinking or smoking more? Is he avoiding answering his cell phone when he sees your number?

Well, maybe it's time to put a little fire back into the romance and keep it there, to keep your husband happy, before someone else does.

This article touches on the following 12 ways you can help your husband feel good:

  1. Give him a good morning kiss or hug
  2. Listen to his same old stories and jokes
  3. Give him a shoulder massage when he comes home
  4. Buy him 2 tickets to his favorite sports game
  5. Put his favorite candy on his pillow
  6. Bake him a birthday cake
  7. Help him watch his diet
  8. Don't disrespect him in front of his friends
  9. Don't borrow his car and bring it back with an empty tank
  10. Don't talk while he's watching his favorite show
  11. Tell him you love him
  12. Let him be the man he was meant to be

1. Give Him a Good Morning Kiss of Hug

If you wake up beside him in the bed, snuggle next to him and put your head on his chest, and put his arm around you. He'll love that feeling of protecting you with his strong arm holding you close.

2. Listen to His Same Old Stories and Jokes

Sure you've heard them a million times, and sometimes you roll your eyes to the top of your head or mimic every word waiting for the end of an outcome you know too well. But just think back to when you first started dating or just got married and he told these funny or interesting little anecdotes.

Think about your smiles and your laughter you gave him then, come on you remember, come on, now bring those feelings to the present moment when he's on stage again. Enjoy the moment, and be the positive audience he wants and needs you to be. This will keep your husband happy.

3. Give Him a Shoulder Massage When He Comes Home

If you are there when he arrives, take his briefcase or bag and set it down. Immediately start massaging his shoulders while he is standing. Lead him over to a chair and sit him down, while you continue to relax him. You don't have to be an expert masseuse.

This will help to ease the tension of a hard day's work. As you are massaging him ask him how was his day. And really listen as he tells you. If you feel your massaging skills are a little rusty, no problem, just Google "massage techniques" for some ideas.

4. Buy Him 2 Tickets to His Favorite Sports Game.

What's his favorite sport? Every man seems to be interested in one sport or another. Does he like golf, baseball, basketball, football, hockey, soccer, rugby, drag racing... Whatever sport turns him on, treat him and his best buddy to tickets to an upcoming event. His buddy can be you or one of your children, or grand-dad or whomever he chooses.

If buying 2 tickets to his favorite sport is not in the budget, never fear, here is what you can do. Order a sports event on cable. This will be less expensive than the actual tickets, and your cable company will bill you later on your monthly bill.

No cable. No problem. Schedule some alone time for him to watch his favorite event on TV. Have some beer in the fridge or whatever his drink is. Have his favorite snacks on the table, and his favorite dinner ready for him, on a plate in the fridge as well. Tell him about the food, so he can pop it in the oven during halftime.

Leave the house, take the kids and any other relatives and pets. Monitor the game from your car radio so you will know when to arrive back home. Go shopping, visiting, to a park, etc., enjoy your time away as well.

Give him at least 45 mins to an hour after the game is over before you return. This will give him time to savor the good feelings he has about enjoying his favorite sport. Plus it will give him a little time to himself, and a chance to start missing you as well. Doing this for him once in a while will definitely keep your husband happy.

5. Put His Favorite Candy on His Pillow.

Once you or he have made the bed (just like they do at the hotels), leave him a treat. If you don't know what his favorite candy is that's ok for now. But he is your husband and this is something you must find out and add to your memory bank. Just notice what gum he always chews or what mint he likes and put one or two of these on or under his pillow now and then.

6. Bake Him a Birthday Cake

Hey, it's his birthday. Don't order a cake from the bakery. Simply find an easy cake recipe on Google, and bake the cake yourself. If you feel you don't have the time to do this or just don't want do. It's still easy.

Go to any grocery store: Buy 1 box of Betty Crocker, Pillsbury or another cake mix. Follow the easy baking instructions on the package, add icing to the finished cake and put your special message on the icing using a different color icing or a tube of icing (which is easy to write with). The tube of icing is easily found in the cake mix aisle at almost any grocery store. He'll love that you took the time out to bake it yourself.

7. Help Him Watch His Diet

Don't have too many sweets and fattening foods around the house. Always fix his favorite foods using low salt, low fat, low cholesterol, low calorie and low sugar whenever possible. Become an expert nutritionist for yourself, your husband and your other family members and friends.

8. Don't Ever Disrespect Him in Front of His Friends

This is a definite NO-NO. No matter what the disagreement or situation, wait until you both get alone to iron out the problem. This cannot be stressed enough. A man's male ego is a super powerful source of strength. If you knock his ego down in front of his friends or relatives.

You may crush him so bad that it will be very hard for him to forgive you. He may want to forget about the incident but his friends may remind him, or just being around them can be a constant reminder of how you dissed him in their eyesight.

9. Don't Borrow His Car and Bring it Back With an Empty Tank

If you use his car or the two of you share the car don't always let him be the one to fill up the gas tank. When possible get a fill-up once in a while. If your money will not allow a fill-up, at the very least put back the gas in the tank on the same gallon mark it was on when you started your errands .example: 1/4 tank, 1/2 tank, 3/4 tank etc. You may not be able to do this every time, but when you do he will appreciate it very much.

10. Don't Talk While He's Watching His Favorite TV Show

If he initiates the conversation, be brief with your comments or answers to his questions. Don't add conversation about the kids and school problems, leaky faucet troubles, bill problems, etc. Treat his TV time just like you would if you were at the movie theatre, and quietly respect the relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere.

11. Tell Him You Love Him

It doesn't hurt to hear the words once in a while. When was the last time you told him? Just don't think that he is supposed to know you love him since you're still with him after all these years. Actually say the words "I Love You" to him daily or a few times a week. Watch the difference it makes in his love expressions to you.

12. Let Him Be the Man He Was Meant to Be

Let him take care of you physically, financially, and gallantly. This will keep your husband happy. Chivalry is alive and well.

I dated Carolina for 8years until i found out she was cheating on me i was so mad at her that i could not even look at her anymore. As time went on i and Carolina was trying to fix things but my best friend wanted us to be apart from each other, in other to have her to herself which he later achieved.

Way easier that this, ALL you have to do is keep the place clean, get into cooking, baking, keep him satisfied in bed and don't fuss or nag, you don't need to do anything else, he'll be happy as pie.

My advice, a couple should keep a black book. Things that you want should be kept in the black book, so when holidays or birthdays come, one spouse just has to look in the black book and knows what things the other wants. There will be a lot less disappointments on gifts received!

my life story

I had already tried three different internet spell caster's services, but all the spell caster I meet were jerks and scams. Then my friend told me about Spells. I wasn't sure anything would come of it, but I thought, why not take a chance? I cast a Love Spell, and the very next week a gorgeous guy came up to me at a club and asked me to dance. He is caring, kind, romantic - everything I always wanted. We've been together for six months now, and we're talking about getting married. I'm a believer!" If you need help you can contact him for assistance,

vennis on April 04, 2013:

I was heartbroken that my husband moved in with another woman so I had a spell to bring him back home and stop the affair he had with her. In just 1 week he left her and went to live at the motel. He called to say so and get news of the kids. The discussion was pleasant, as if he was changing to become the man I knew when we got married. It was exactly as you said…. Now he’s back home and is absolutely crazy about me. I am so thrilled by this spell that I cant find the right words to say how I feel right now. All I can decently say is that you changed my life Dr Asika Kuma and saved the most important thing in my life. my family thanks to you sir for bring back my husband home, if you passing true the same problems in your home contact Dr Asika Kuma for help on his Email: or call him on his cell phone +2347051705853

Joy222 on April 02, 2013:

My boyfriend and I were happy as far as I could tell and I never thought that we would break up. When his cousin died in a tragic car accident he went back to Philippine for a week to be with his family. I could not go because I was in the middle of entertaining out of town clients for work. He did not seem to be upset that I could not go so I let him be. The next thing that I know, he reconnected with an old friend from high school that he had a crush on years ago and they started to have an affair! I had no clue what was going on until a month after he came back from Philippine.He proceeded to see both her and I until I saw him sending her love text message one night. I confronted him and he told me the truth about what happened. We broke up and went our separate ways. Neither of us fought for our relationship. I was angry and decided not to be upset about it and just keep it moving. Then after about a month of not speaking to him I became sad. I wanted him to tell me that he wanted to be with me and not her. I contacted Dr. Kim for a love spell and he totally helped me! he was able to get him back to me, He had a lot of regrets and felt bad for not fighting to keep me and for cheating in general. He values our relationship so much more now and we are together now! You can also get your lover back with the help of Dr, Kim contact him through this email:

VICKY on March 31, 2013:

I have contact 15 spell casters and 10 of them has rip me off my money without any result. I have Emailed so many sites online looking for a good spell caster till i was directed by a 16 years old girl to with website: At first i never believed him because he was requesting for some amount of money to buy items, it took him three weeks to convince me and something occur to mind and i said let me give him a trial. I was very shocked when Robben called four days after i sent Dr, shiva the items money. He apologies for all he has done wrong and i am very happy that we are together today because he proposed to me last night. I will advise you contact because he has done wonders in my life and i believe he can help you out in any problem Vicky

laura234 on March 28, 2013:

Life can be very displeasing especially when we loose the ones we love and cherish so much. in this kind of situation where one loses his/her soul mate there are several dangers engage in it. one may no longer be able to do the things he was doing before then success will be very scarce and happiness will be rare. that person was created to be with you for without him things may fall apart.

That was my experience late last year. but thank god today i am happy with him again. all thanks to DR AKPAKPA, i was nearly loosing hope until i saw an article on how DR AKPAKPA could cast a love spell to make lovers come back. There is no harm in trying, i said to my self. i contacted him via email: words will not be enough to appreciate what he has done for me. i have promised to share the good news as long as i live.


natasha on March 26, 2013:

I can’t thank you enough for all that you have done for me. About 2 year ago I my partner had misunderstanding, we had both made BIG mistakes in our relationship. He ended up moving away from me to pursue a new life. I knew in my heart that he would be the only one to make me happy. I was relieved when I found your on a site about what you have done. I requested 1 to 2 day casting of the reunite us love spell and within 3days frank company had relocated him back to our hometown where I still lived. We immediately reconnected and move in with each other I can’t really thank you enough Dr Okoja.

sabrina on March 24, 2013:

Thanks to Esango Priest, after reading the post of Debby,Dave and Constance,about how Esango Priest help them get back their jobs and Lovers, I quickly wrote him and explained how Scott abandoned me on May 14th for another lady and wanted him back, Esango Priest said I should not worry anymore and he assure me he's gonna be back to me in 48hrs if he could get some items in the market to cast the spell, I wait patiently and he got back to me after he got the items and went to the mountain, the Next day at 7pm Scott came to my door step and knelt down, I open the door and I was shocked so I let him in and he said he will never ignore me again, we had sex that night, I was so happy and tried telling Esango Priest about this success but he said all he wanted was for me to share the testimony and let people know how real this is, People all over the world Esango Priest is someone I can recommend and testify am a living witness of this. You can contact him via email for any kind of spell.

Catgaze, I agree it is a wonderful thing if your partner is your best friend. But I personally disagree that one would be doomed or lost if he is not.

Catgaze on April 08, 2012:

My love is infact my best friend. I am sure that you all have thousands of things to say and claim.. In the end if your partner is not your best friend then you are forever doomed and lost?...

Hi swetha, Thanks for sharing such a personal matter.The only advice I can give you is to talk to a marriage counselor, or your church pastor for the best advice and help with your problems. Stay strong and stay positive. Each day always do a few things that make you happy so you can stay strong and happy with yourself. So much good luck and happiness I wish you!

BIGCSSHOP (author) on September 19, 2011:

Thank You From France for taking the time to let us know how you treat your husband. I certainly agree a woman should be independent, her being so can strengthen the relationship with her husband. Yes the air of your independence does make most husbands wild and even want you more. Just as I suggest things for her to do for him these same rules apply for him to do things to keep her happy too! Thanks again for stopping by!

BIGCSSHOP (author) on September 19, 2011:

Thanks carefulone for sharing. I'm not a marriage counselor but I do believe they give great professinal advice. Try to contact one in your area to help resolve your issues. Best of Luck!

From France on September 11, 2011:

Voilà, just checked French websites in relation to this subject. Almost all of them says: be independent and care less about your husband ! Make him go crazy about you.

From France on September 11, 2011:

Well, i don't know in which country these suggestiona may work but definitely not in France! I am an independent woman even though married. My husband gets a nice word if he deserves it and when I want to say it. I don't agree with an artificial nice word every morning in either side. Cooking. It is my husband who cooks. I just help around if not too tired after work and busy with our child. If one day my husband wants to leave, nothing will stop him and definitely I'll do nothing. That's why it is so important for woman to stay independent.

carefulone on August 03, 2011:

I'm in a bind with my marriage...its not so much him but issues with myself! I love my husband so much...but I'm having trouble keeping the past in the past. He did something dumb but I stayed with him...I just have moments when I have flashbacks of what I walked in on...I want my marriage to work, we have been together for 7 yrs. now and i need advice on what to do to keep him happy and how to get myself to put this all in the past where it belongs1 It's killing me inside and I'm doing it to myself I think but I really need to get this resolved. I don't want something thats haunting ME from the past to kill our marriage!

BIGCSSHOP (author) on April 08, 2011:

Thanks Sona, I'm glad you were able to see some positive results from adding just a couple of caring expressions to your love life. Great success, prosperity, joy and happiness to you and your husband.

my boyfriend actually seems to enjoy cooking for me more, I don't like cooking much because I don't like touching hot things! It's actually more suited to the toughness of a man isn't it?

I am in a live in relation for more than two years and everyday i learn a lot of how not to piss him off.....

i read your article and many points are true in my case....

eg...he wants me to say a sweet good mornin with a smile everyday or he gets mood out...

he wants me to listen to every stupid joke of his eventhough it is boring.....but when i listen as if there is nothing in the world i want to do but hear him talk, the results are amazing....i get showered with lots of affection....

and he does not like it when his self esteem gets damaged by some small word in my conversation with him....

and one thing i learnt the hard way is that sit with him and watch his fave TV show and enjoi it (or pretend).....the closeness that comes later feels good.....

but i had to endure a great deal of fights to reach this small understanding

but in all i found that reading articles and books about men and how to lead a happy loving and peaceful life with them, helps a lot lot lot.......

this article is one such pearl i got in the net

thank u!!!

toughwoman, you've got the right name. Hang on in there. Many great blessings of health, wealth, happiness and long life to you and yours.

hope, marriage is hard, i have been married for 14, but just recently i have been taking care of him like men want to be taken care of.. do not give up, talk to him, don't pressure him. love him and little by little reel him back to your family.. once again marriage is tough. it is worth it fo all of you. read books. that helps me too.

BIGCSSHOP (author) on November 03, 2010:

Thanks his angel, for your advice. Your're certainly right let him be his own self and don't try to change him.


Thanks hope, so much hope for sharing. I wish you luck with your situation. Sometimes when things get very complicated as you express maybe you need to seek professional counseling. I dare not make a decision for you for there are always two sides to every story.Good Luck!

Hi I am married with my husband for over 12 yeaes and have kids. sometime ago, he left me and my kids for other girl he said he loves. We already had kids that time and tried to fight our marriage and my kids but no use. We parted ways for almost a year and he came back coz he missed our kids and for that he wanted us to be together. I love him though and wanted to fix our marriage and whatever was my shortcoming was, I wanted to make them up to him and also give them a second chance. during those times, he still have communication to the girl coz they had a child. I accepted it. Now, I am not sure if he is starting to do the same again. What I know that he's been lying to me several times. In my mind, I just want to end our marriage but what about our kids?

his angel on October 31, 2010:

one thing for sure is not to try and change your man, ive tried it and he just got worse. i made peace with who he is and left him to do his own things his own ways, and i promise he got better, now im in love all over again, wow the man i met just came back

BIGCSSHOP (author) on October 21, 2010:

Im, thank you for your advice. I know many readers will find it truly helpful. "I love you" are such powerful words.

Saying "I love you" before leaving for work or after your phone conversation can be a habit. Try it. It works. I love my husband so much. I know his happy with me,we can sense it.

Good ways fer sure. I would add making love. I have been divorced 2x and both times that played a major role in the divorce.

BIGCSSHOP (author) on April 30, 2010:

Thanks so much Bigo for your comment. You are truly right!

Bigo on April 29, 2010:

I can say that cooking is also a way to make your hubby to fell that you really care about him. But there are few wives who didn't know to cook initially, but still they are leading a happy life with the husband. Few man likes you to be the way you are and few want you to change according to their taste, YOu need to understand how your person adn act accordingly.

BIGCSSHOP (author) on January 16, 2010:

gogo, i appreciate your words...there are a lot of suggestions i can share with you... but only you and he know all the small and large details that causes your relationship troubles...if 10 or 20 minutes is all you have, then i would suggest you make the most of that time doing what he and you like best, remembering a little compromise is o.k....and soon you should see that 10 or 20 minutes become even longer... here a site one of my readers suggested Lots of luck

gogo on January 14, 2010:

BIGCSSHOP (author) on October 20, 2009:

Thanks for all your comments.

It's nice to get a man's point of view on the subject. Thanks Melaman.

Melaman on October 19, 2009:

It's not true that food is the way to a man's heart!

Sorry, but it's a fact.

My wife cooks really great meals, but I couldn't care less!

What I want from her is affection, intimacy, friendship and communication. We're not close at all, and I'm thinking to leave this marriage after tolerating her ways for 8 years! I've begged, pleaded and asked her many many times to be the person she was when we met. Her response is simply: I'm making too much fuss. But I don't think sleeping in my own bed in my own room is a fuss...I think it's absurd!!
