Amid the news of many marriages crashing these days, viewing one’s marriage through the lens of satisfaction may be hard.
You may wonder if you are doing enough to sustain yours or merely living on fantasies that might one day give way to misery.
You may find yourself dealing with issues such as wife guilt.
You wonder if you are a good wife to your husband and if he feels happy and satisfied in the marriage.
No wife is perfect in her ways, but even in your imperfections, you may be the perfect one for your husband.
Come along as we discuss some signs to look out for in your husband to know whether he is happy and satisfied being married to you.
10 Signs your husband is happy and satisfied in your marriage.
He enjoys talking to you.
Men are usually more analytical than women.
Whereas the female gender loves to talk to express herself, the male gender largely loves to think.
This means that most men love their own space.
However, a satisfied husband has found a friend and confidant in his wife.
She is not just his wife but his gist buddy and bestie.
They will share with each other without reservation.
The first person I like to share any news with, good or bad, is my husband.
So, if you observe that your husband thoroughly enjoys talking to you, unrestrained, this is a sign that he is happy and satisfied.
He wants to hear your opinions on even the most mundane things.
He gives you a load down of how his day goes.
He shares his wins and losses with you.
If he talks and listens to what you say, then he is most likely content with what you share as a married couple.
On the day he doesn’t do any of these, it is easy for you to detect that something is off and needs to be fixed.
He speaks highly of you.
We all desire at least one person who is our cheerleader and motivator in private and public.
For many married persons, this role is played by their supportive partners.
If your husband proudly speaks about your person and abilities in public, it is a sign that he is happy being married to you.
He wants to tell everyone who cares to listen that you are his wife, which means he is proud to be associated with you.
Your win is his win, and your achievements do not threaten him.
He includes you in his plans always.
If your husband considers your interests before making plans or decisions, it indicates that he is happy having you by his side.
He does not impose his plans on you or shut you out of his plans because he knows that your happiness gives him happiness.
Also, on his part, he does not feel left out of your plans because you carry him along.
He commends your efforts.
If your husband recognises and commends your efforts towards the home or any other way, it is a sign that he is happy being married to you.
An unsatisfied husband will likely find faults in you, always complain and trivialise your efforts.
Appreciation is a sign of satisfaction.
He knows your worth and thoughtfully demonstrates gratitude for the weight you pull.
He does not intentionally hurt you.
If being married to you gives him happiness and satisfaction, your husband is most likely going to treat you with kindness and thoughtfulness.
He will not deliberately do anything that will bring you sadness or pain.
So, if you see your husband dealing with you with kindness, it could be that he is merely paying back what he gets from you and his marriage to you.
An unsatisfied husband is unlikely to be conscious of your feelings.
He is probably too buried in his unhappy feelings to be mindful of yours.
He cannot give what he does not have.
He trusts you and your choices.
There’s so much bliss that comes with being with a spouse that one trusts absolutely.
If your husband trusts you and your choices, this is a sign that he is content with you.
Your decisions have repeatedly brought him joy, so he has no cause for worry.
If he has his reservations, he does not hesitate to express them because he knows you value him.
He can’t get his hands off you.
Physical touch is also one of the signs that indicate whether your husband is pleased or not.
He likes to be around you always and keeps you close to him.
He gives you random hugs and kisses around the house.
He derives immense satisfaction from your body, and his attraction for you keeps waxing stronger daily.
He gives you a helping hand.
If your man is helpful around the house, it is a sign that he is happy being married to you.
He cannot bear having you overstretched, so he does all he can to ease your burden.
He sees you as his teammate.
Therefore, he actively complements your efforts as the need arises.
He pulls you up when you are down and stands in when you are too weak to.
If this is your man, he is most definitely pleased to be doing life with you.
He happily gives you his time and money.
A happy and satisfied husband will most likely spend his time and money on his trusts.
He wants to ensure that you have his attention and you do not lack anything as long as he can afford it.
Even if you are a financially independent woman, spending on women boosts men’s ego, so he happily does so.
You do not have to struggle to have his attention and time as and when needed.
This is a sign that your man is not only married to you but, more importantly, happily married to you.
He is kind to your family.
The way your husband treats your family is often a reflection of how you treat him or how he feels about you.
If your husband is cold and unreceptive towards your family members, there could be unresolved issues between you two.
But on the other hand, if your husband is warm and receptive towards your people, it is a sign that he is pleased to have married into your family.
Happy marriages abound, contrary to what social media seems to portray in recent times.
Negativity simply seems to attract more attention in this age and time.
If we avoid unnecessary comparisons, focus more on our homes and take the sad news of broken homes that we see online with a grain of salt, we will realise that there are several ways to keep ourselves and our spouses satisfied in our marriages.
Many marriages thrive beautifully with the appropriate efforts from both parties in the union.
