20 Ways to Make Him Feel Respected

20 ways to show him respect

My husband and I have been married for 3 1/2 years and together for a total of 8 1/2. Throughout those years we have done a lot of talking on the topic of marriage. We want to have a successful and strong marriage and in order to do that we need to be open to talk about what is best for our marriage. During one of our talks, my husband said it is crucial to him emotionally that he feels respected. He may know that I respected but he needs to actually see and feel that respect. If your husband is anything like mine, here are some ways to help make him feel respected.

  1. Seek his advice
  2. Talk positively about him in front of his friends
  3. Compliment him
  4. Admit when you were wrong
  5. Don’t argue in public
  6. Listen when he wants to talk
  7. Let him know he is important to you
  8. Ask for his help (even if you don’t need it)
  9. Thank him for his help
  10. Tell him you love and respect him
  11. Be happy and positive when he comes home
  12. Give him time to unwind when he gets home
  13. Give him your attention when he wants it
