How to Show Your Husband You Love Him
I attended MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) yesterday for the first time. I loved it and the discussion held really hit home for me. The key speaker was talking about husbands and how we can show our love to them. As mothers, we are constantly on the run – whether it’s changing diapers, preparing meals, disciplining kids, doing laundry…well you know what I mean if you are a mom yourself!
Men and women are very different, as you probably have learned. Men and women have different ways in which they feel loved. For women, we feel loved when our man listens to us share our feelings and emotions. We feel love through verbal communication – some of us also feel love with hugs and kisses (others may feel love with gifts given).
However, men are fairly simple. They feel loved in one way – sex! Yep, you got it. Sometimes as mothers, we may present it more as a chore or duty when our spouse wants to be intimate. Perhaps it’s because you’re exhausted, hadn’t showered that day, have an upset stomach, who knows? But men feel loved with sex. I really didn’t have any idea of this before I attended the discussion. Don’t get me wrong. I know that most men like it, but I had no idea this would be how to show my husband I love him (other than keeping the house clean and food coming – not to mention the occasional, ahem, sex toys for a bit of added excitement! lol).
