  1. Ask about his job. Listen to his joys and struggles at work. Thank him for working so hard for your family.
  2. Invite some of his co-workers over for lunch. Get to know some of the people with whom your husband spends his day.
  3. Attend company gatherings with him.
  4. Ask your spouse about his dreams. What would he like to do? Where would he like to travel?
  5. Offer to run an errand for your husband.
  6. Send him encouraging texts throughout the day
  7. Talk positively about him to others.
  8. Don’t interrupt him.
  9. Give him time to think. Don’t expect an instant answer.
  10. Talk over your family schedule with him.
  11. Work as a team to guide and discipline your kids. Keep a “team front” in front of your kids, and talk to your husband in private if you disagree.
  12. Pray for him.
  13. Give him time to wind down after work.

I’m excited about my marriage. I love what God is doing with us. I love giving my husband the respect he deserves. Every day I pray and ask God to show me more ways to show my husband respect. Maybe by this time next year I’ll have a list! I hope so!
