Most young couples usually find out the hard way that there is a lot more than love that keeps a marriage strong these days. You see, marriage as an institution requires so very much of us that we sometimes have difficulties keeping up. Even so, we often imprint ourselves on our loved ones just as much as they imprint their own characteristics onto us, becoming not only lovers but the greatest of friends over time.
As a matter of fact, no marriage has ever survived on physical attraction alone, which is why we must always make time for our loved ones no matter how busy or tired we may be. Now we already talked about how a good husband should act like, so maybe it was time to establish what makes a good wife.
Over the next few minutes, we will go through what it means to be a good wife and the ways a woman can ensure the sustainability of her marriage so that it will pass the test of time. Without further ado, here are ten valuable tips on how to be a good wife and why not, a good friend to the man you love.
10A friend is for life
One of the most important things to remember is that a person doesn’t always get to choose his friends. We are, of course, talking here about lifelong friends who most of us have known for most of our lives, people who have shared our joys and disappointments along the way. In this respect, try not to keep your husband away from his friends, even if you don’t really like them all that much or even if you think they have a negative effect on them. After all, there might be a reason why there’s such a strong bond between them to begin with.
