  • I do not believe in, doing certain things makes you a good wife. Ask your DH if he is satified with you as his wife. If he is ok with you, so be it. You are a good wife to him.

  • What year is it?? If your DH is happy with you as his wife. That is all that matters. Their is know such thing as a good or bad wife.

  • Hmmm....good question. I guess I would say:
    ~ Caring more about your husband than you do about yourself.
    ~ Giving 100% even though he is only giving 50%.
    ~ Give him respect.
    ~ Encourage him.
    ~ Find out what makes him happy and do it for him.
    ~ Apologize if you messed up in any way.
    ~ Forgive him easily if he messes up.
    ~ Being willing to do things that your hubby wants to do that are out of your comfort zone (within reason i.e. camping, fishing)

  • ~ Show him affection even if you aren't totally into it
    ~ Initiate sex sometimes
    ~ Show understanding/support with job related stuff
    ~ Be thankful yourself & teach children to be thankful for all that Dad does

  • lol at your what year is it comment. that's cute made me smile. yep but I like to know what it is I'm doing so I can keep doing it lol you know. I get to the point where I don't often feel like a good wife or that I'm suppose to be doing more.

  • Well, i think there can be such thing as a "bad wife"..or maybe just a bad person who got married. I think good wife consists of friendship, understanding, respect, affection...those are the top things in my book that create a harmonius relationship. Everything else falls into place when you have those for each other.

  • To feel you are. To hear from your own DH you are. To have long time marriage that's happy..
