Two interesting stories on the same topic came across my way backed up with my personal observations.
A fried of mine has told me about one interesting phenomenon he has noticed: the better is the present to his wife for the Christmas, the better is their family life in both material and non-material aspects! He understood that giving a nice present to his wife (nice means something what she really likes) means paying respect to the family principle, as a wife is the soul of a family.
“I friend of mine, Professor John Gottman, of Seattle, one of the first psychologists to study the behavior of longterm happy couples, noticed that the men in such relationships, are thinking of their wives throughout the day. That makes sense, for if one’s attention is there, there is no room for it to be anywhere else.
One time I stayed with John in his home, a lawn sprinkler system was being installed in his front garden and as we walked up the path, the foreman of the men working there, came up to him and said that he was getting married soon, and he asked John if he had any advice for him. John, a modest, lovely man, scratched his head and thought for a minute. “Advice?” he mused…….”OK, honor your wife’s dreams.”
I remember reading somewhere that the wives of successful businessmen are mostly very demanding, and this is often the reason why such men become successful. Of course there are millions of women who are after their poor husband – willing this, wanting that… One should be really wise and see what is possible in every situation. Naturally, women are wise creatures however the brainwash of the modern times can easily make a “desire-machine” out of them. But that is not the point I want to make here.
I just want to remind all the husband who will read my post:
Your wife is your power, she nourishes you with her love and attention every day, she is the sustenance of your emotional side and your heart…Try to please her as much as you can, and give her the most beautiful present she desires!..
