10 Things you should be saying to your wife


1. I love you. I know it’s a little obvious. But wives need to hear this little phrase over and over. I don’t know if it can be said too much.

2. You are beautiful. Every woman wants to be beautiful. Tell her how she is beautiful and what about her is pretty.

3. Thank you for all the little things you do. Women usually do quite a few little things that may seem unnoticeable day to day, but they are big things! Let her know you don’t take her and the work she does for granted.

4. You are smart. Women have sometimes been belittled and sometimes assumed inferior. Tell your wife how smart she is. Point out some ways you have learned from her.

5. I am a better man because I am with you. Express to your wife that you have become a better man because she is in your life. She challenges you and pushes you to do your best. Because of her support, you have achieved goals & dreams in your life.

6. Tell me about your day. Women like to talk. Be genuine and ask your wife how her day was. Really listen and pay attention showing her that she is important to you.

7. I need you. Let you wife know that you really need her. Without her you would not be able to do all that you do.

8. Sit down and put your feet up. Yes. Sometimes wives need a little break! Take over dinner or the laundry for a few minutes and let her get some quiet time in.

9. You are a great mom. If you are blessed with children, then your wife has a very demanding job. She is on call 24/7. Let her know that you really appreciate her role in your children’s lives. And that she is doing a fabulous job too. 

10. How can I help you? Find out what you can do to help your wife out. You might be surprised at all the little tasks she has to do each day. Just taking on one of them would be a big help to her.

Is there anything I forgot?

  • you are a great mom is something that every woman needs to hear. I love it when my hubby says this to me, it really makes my day, especially the harder ones.

  • Love these ideas! My hubs is so good, I have to say he really nails most of these! I feel super lucky 😉

  • Great list and a great reminder of where we both need to give more to more another. Being more caring and understanding is never a bad thing.

  • These are very sweet things and would be great to say to your spouse to make them feel special and loved.

  • Anytime couples try and keep the lines of communication open and honest it’s a good thing!

    • totally agree!! i’ve been sending my husband little texts – not naughty or anything, but just like hi handsome or whatever. little spontaneous somethings are nice too

  • Nice tips! Communication is so important, even after you’re married you can’t take it for granted.

  • I have to say that my husband does say these things at least once a week. He is a wonderful man, and I am happy to be his wife.

  • My hubby is very stoic and definitely doesn’t say much! But, I know he loves me and shows in his actions. 🙂

  • Love the advice! Though I’m not married yet, I think I need to show this to my boyfriend so at least he have an idea of what to say when we get married 😉

  • I am lucky to have a husband that expresses his love everyday in many ways. I like this article, thanks.

  • What woman wouldn’t want to hear all of those? I really like the one about telling her she’s a great mom – after “I love you”, hearing that he thinks I’m a good Mom is my favorite thing that comes out of my husband’s mouth.

  • No doubt about it I have hit the jackpot with the man I married. I have a winner.
    I hear 9 out of 10 regularly. I never hear number nine. Never ever. Reason why. No kids.

    We have no kids.
