how do I become a better wife?

I need to learn how to brush off my husbands lies ... I need to learn how to accept the fact that when I ask him about something, he is going to lie about it. 

All I ever wanted was to be a good wife. He is a good man in so many ways and we have a nice, comfortable life together. I love him very much and I know that he loves me very much. Unfortunately, in my marriage love doesn't come with respect ... 

I need to learn how to accept the fact that my husband is extremely immature when it comes to handling issues that come up in our  life. 

To be a good wife to my 40 yr old husband I have to accept that he has his own little secrets and wishes to not include me. 

I have to keep reminding myself that my husband truly is a good man with a good heart. I must always remember that he loves me and he is a good provider. I will have to accept the fact that my husband has no respect for me or for our marriage. 

Only two years into marriage, I have a lot of learning to do. I don't fail so I will figure this out

What does he lie about? Fucking other women or what he ate for lunch?

If he does not respect you and lies to you, then no he is not a good husband. A good husband respects his wife and does not lie to her

I think he needs to learn how to be a better husband, not the other way around.

Why should you have to tolerate lies? In order to be a good wife you have to have a good husband. I think that's what you're lacking here.

Your husband isn't a good man if he lies, has no respect for you and hides things.  If you are staying for his income you do have to learn to live with that. But if you have respect for yourself you can leave and don't have to put up with less than what you deserve which is honesty, respect and love.

 Sorry I wouldn't be with someone who always lies to me and didn't respect me.
