Husbands Need Respect

All husbands have needs, but not all husbands are good at expressing those needs to their wives.

No two men are alike. Some of us are quiet and introspective; others are loud and outgoing; still others fall somewhere in-between. But regardless of these personality differences, there are some things we all have in common. We all need wives who make us feel special. And who love and respect us, no matter what.

Even those of us with a healthy self-image crave a little praise and admiration from our spouses from time to time. We need to know that our wives support us in all we do—and that they’ll stand by us through thick and thin. At times our dreams may prove a bit too lofty, and our waists a bit too flabby; still, it’s nice to know that someone loves us just for who we are.
