  • I usually bribe my DH too, it works. He knows that if he does things for me that I will return the favor.

  • I just ask him, he's pretty accommodating. If it's money related I won't ask unless I know we can afford it, he's very generous as well.

  • I usually have only to ask. Sometimes, he may forget and I will have to ask him the second time. He knows he sometimes forgets, so usually when I ask him to do something, he will ask me to remind him if he forgets. So I do.

  • I just ask him.

    Answer by Dr.Donna at 4:33 PM on Feb. 9, 2011

  • Me personally.

    I just ask him to do whatever it is that I want/need done. That's it. No tricks, no butting heads, no playing games.. I simply tell him what I want/need, why I want/need it, and ask him to do it for me. Does he forget every now and then, or get busy with something else, or have something else unexpected pop up. Yeah he does, he's human and those things happen to him just like that do me (when he ask me to do something important to him) so I am understanding and not really bothered when something like that happens.

    I know that I do not always get done what my husband ask me to do for him: the moment he ask, as soon as he would like sometimes, and sometimes other things pop up that I need to do first , sometimes I do not do it the exact same way he would and sometimes I simply forget. So, how can I not be understanding/accepting when those things happen on his part.
