Recently, over at the Peacefulwife Blog, my wife ran a guest post entitled “101 Ways to Show Respect for Your Husband.”  This was an awesome list, so the Peacefulwife asked if he could come up with 101 Ways to Love your Wife.  After working on it a couple of weeks he came back with a great list.  I can say for certain that after the Peacefulwife read it she thought each way was spot on.  I decided that the whole 101 was a bit much to swallow at one time so I am going to post it in a series by the categories.

101 Ways to Love your Wife: Character

Character could be defined as who you are when no one else is looking. How you behave toward your wife when people aren’t looking are just as important as when they are.

  1. Always tell the truth– in love.

  2. Talk about her to others in such a way that you want what you say to get back to her.

  3. Be accountable to her.

  4. Let her know when you get to where you’re going (if it’s not routine).

  5. If you’re going to be late, let her know– at least when you do.

  6. Always talk about her positively in front of the kids.

  7. Make sure to compliment her on her cooking/cleaning/etc.

  8. Keep your word– if you’re going to be somewhere or do something, then be there or do it.

  9. Keep your space organized.

  10. If you don’t know, say so.

  11. Make sure to speak kindly.

  12. Find the appropriate time to talk about difficult subjects.

  13. Be the same man in her presence as out of it.

  14. No female friends.

  15. Never go out to eat with just a female.
