Books On How To Be A Better Husband

Does you husband make you read books or watch videos on how to be a good wife.

I know every now and then my husband will bring home a book he saw at the store he wants me to read. At first it offended me b/c I thought I knew all about being a good wife but actually its become interesting and I do learn new stuff. I just wanted to see how common this was.

Buy him a few books on “what women like” and “how to become a better lover.” LOL

Best book for how to cope with a husband with bipolar disorder.

My husband has bipolar disorder and I’d really like a book or two on how to deal in my marriage with this new found issue. I can’t seem to find any that directly relate to marriage and bipolar and more importantly STAYING in a marriage with someone who has bipolar.

She was an accomplished fiction writer as well as the author of this book.She had an interesting life and tells a lot of it in the book.I recommend it highly.

How to be a better conversationalist.

Ok so I was just wondering…it seems every time I have a conversation with a girl I like I tend to occasionally have awkward pauses, and although I know they’re normal, I enjoy carrying a conversation for the most part. I listen to and respond to the things she says and bring up my own subjects, but I…

A good conversationalist doesn’t monopolize the conversation. People usually like it when a person is a good listener and talks about things the other person thinks are important.A hard working girl with Godly character (the type of girl that I suggest you eventually look for in order to avoid a broken heart) is attracted to a hard working man with Godly character – she’s not too concerned about how good of a conversationalist he is. Unfortunately this type of woman is difficult to find – but don’t settle for less.You may not want to hear this, but my second suggestion is that you put in the effort required to become the type of person that God wants you to date (a keeper) before dating anyone else.”You’ve probably heard the expression “He’s a keeper” or “She’s a keeper”, which means that a person has valuable qualities that a person would want in a boyfriend or girlfriend, husband or wife.From a Christian perspective, may I suggest that a keeper is a strong Christian, someone who keeps:- their Christian faith strong through daily prayer, and regular Bible study/churchattendance- trusting in Christ alone for their salvation and for their daily needs- trusting God when the storms of life hit (problems, tragedies, etc.)- God in mind when making any important decision – In other words, they seek God’s will for their lives.- trying to obey the two greatest commandments, “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength” and “love your neighbor as yourself.” (Mark, chapter 12, verses 28-31)- trying to grow throughout their life (spiritually, emotionally, relationally, and intellectually)- trying to display the fruits of the Holy Spirit – love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control- a group of Christian friends- trying to control their tongue- a positive attitude (cheerful, enthusiastic, looks on the bright side of things)- themselves sexually pure from this day forward- forgiving others- in mind how much God loves them regardless of what they have doneIf a keeper decides to get married, they are someone who keeps:- trying to meet the needs of their spouse- trying to communicate their needs to their spouse in a constructive positivemanner- trying to treat their spouse with a high level of concern and respect in both words and actions – regardless of what they receive in return from their spouse- their lifetime commitment to their spouseIn order to become a keeper, first of all, if you’re not already, you need to become a Christian. Please read the short book “More than a Carpenter” by Josh McDowell to find out if Christianity is the truth or if it’s baloney.If you decide to become a Christian, here are some suggestions of how to go about developing your relationship with God: 1. Get yourself a good Bible that is written for your age group. 2. Read it every other day at the least – start out in John and move to other books that talk about daily living and love – such as Proverbs, 1 Corinthians, etc. 3. Spend time in prayer daily including praising God; thanking God for all of your blessings; confessing your sins of thought, word, and deed; asking God to forgive your sins; asking God for help forgiving other people; asking God for wisdom to make good decisions that are pleasing to Him; asking God for strength to live your life each day the way he wants you to; sharing things with Him that are bothering or worrying you; and praying for other people.So the first step toward finding the type of person that God wants you to date and possibly marry is for you to take the time to become the type of person that God wants you to date.The second step is to prepare yourself for dating and marriage by reading some good books from a Christian perspective about dating and marriage. The appendixes of Straight Talk About Dating and Straight Talk About Teen Dating contain a list of highly recommended books.After the second step has been accomplished, the next step is to participate in as many activities as possible with other people who are strong Christians. Sunday School class, church youth group or young adult group meetings and activities, church events, activities of a Christian organization, service projects, mission trips, Bible studies, etc., can all be great opportunities to get to know the type of people that God wants you to date without actually dating. (But be careful, some of the people that you will meet are simply masquerading as strong Christians.)It’s not going to be easy, but patience, perseverance, prayer, and participation in activities with other strong Christians will make it more likely that you will eventually find a person with whom you can have a lifelong loving Christian marriage.”(Please remember that you want a 40, 50, or 60 year marriage – not a 5 or 10 year marriage.)

How can I be a better wife to my husband.

Hi, I would just like some advice on how to be a good wife. I grew up in a household where my parents weren’t very respectful to one another even though they’re still married. They called each other names and fought a lot. I never really learned how to be a good wife other than cooking, cleaning, doing…

Don’t belittle him in front of friends or family. If he is annoying the crap out of you or making a fool out of himself to the point that you have to confront him, do it in private.And if you find yourself getting frustrated that he isn’t picking up on hints about whatever is on your mind, realize that hints usually don’t work on guys and you need to tell him what you want (girls will say that guys are too dense, I personally say that girls’ hints just suck lol). This will help keep you from getting frustrated with him, and thus frustrating him back.And above all, enjoy yourself. If you are happy, he will be happier. You’ll get more smiles out of him if you are yourself smiling. If you’re always pouting and frowning, he’ll reciprocate.

How to be a better husband to a Filipina spouse.

Looking for a response from a Filipina or Flipina and caucasin couple regarding some of these issue or a reference book to better understand dealing with issues with a filipina wife.I love my wife and I have been honest with her regarding some changes when we left Germany to return to the US. I was very…

i don’t see any problem with you but i can definitely see that there’s something wrong with your wife and her kid. talking to your wife with the whole “hon, we need to talk” approach and spreading and showing all the bills in front of her would never work. actually, i think this would never work not only to filipinas but to all women as well because this will only gravitate to the idea that there is a problem and this will cause more strain for both of you. another would be being frank with your wife because most women are not receptive in facing hard facts.most women are not receptive to change so that’s why they are often times stubborn. if they feel comfortable the way things are, then its almost impossible for them to listen. that’s why its so hard for them to foresee things.talking about foreseeing and planning, most of them make their decisions by their intuition so that’s why it’s so hard for them to make long term structured plans. yes they have plans but they’re so unstructured that they all seem just based on impulse.how about this approach for a change. like one night, before you sleep, talk to her about how its so hard for you seeing her carrying all the burden of her family and her son. like helping her to realize that there is something wrong and not simply telling her that there’s something wrong. and for her family in the philippines, now that she already helped them a lot, help her see that maybe its about time for them help themselves . help her see that its not fair for her that she’s doing all the work and THEY are just sitting there waiting something from her. help her see that you have a new life now and things have already changed. help her see that helping her family TOO MUCH to alleviate homesickness isn’t healthy for everyone.and about her son, this seems to be a very delicate issue. NEVER let her feel that you are upset about her son for whatever reason you may have. NEVER let her feel that that you feel like “ok, i think this is enough and i have done my part”. instead, let her feel that you are concerned about her son too especially about his future. help her see that the way his son is acting now, his son won’t be able to survive the world on his own. NEVER let her feel that its her fault that her son turned out to be like that. she probably knows that already but is still on denial. i think the best way to handle spoiled brats is to set rules and limits and BE FIRM. these rules and limits should come from her and you should only be there to help her out decide. never let her feel that your dictating out thesse rules.and about doing yourself a favor, help her see that your human too and YOU are her husband and everything should be fair. its not right that you’re paying all the bills for everyone.and this is very important: whenever you talk to her, always make it sound like you are concerned about everybody. there’s no single way of doing it. maybe like comforting her or something like that.

How can I be a BETTER husband to my wife.

I have been married to my gorgeous wife for a little over a month now (April 7th) and i want to be as good a man and husband and father as I can be, I want her to know she married a man with integrity and determination and compassion. I’m reading books on life, marriage, buisness, and actively making changes…

You are on the right track already. I would look into things you can do as a couple that you are interested in.Don’t forget to tell her exactly what you told us. She will probably cry because it is so deep.Not many men can say those thoughts out loud.I’ve been married 14 years and my husband and I frequently have talks that last 3 hours or more. These are the subjects we talk about.Tell your wife your hopes and dreams.Ask her about hersTell her about your wishes for the child and ask about hers. (it’s back and forth effort)Tell her she looks great and that you love her no matter what (pregnancy changes things for a woman, it just does. We need reminding that our bodies are still beautiful despite its flaws)Tell her your dreams for your marriage. Tell her about your commitment to Christ and that with Him you two will never lose.Give her the time she needs during passionate moments. An average woman needs at least 20 minutes of direct contact to orgasm. A man needs 5…Enough said…keep sex fun, creative, and at her pace. Listen to her, but make sure you have a voice too. You are just as important as she is in this…It Takes Two.

Is there a list on how to Be a Good Husband.

http://www.snopes.com/language/document/…http://iws.ccccd.edu/grooms/goodwife.htmif there was a good wife list then is there good husband list?http://search.barnesandnoble.com/booksea…

If you look at the review of the third item you have linked, you will see that there is a ‘Good Husband’ book as well as a ‘Good Wife’ one.As for the first two, those extracts are not from a home economics textbook(as both incorrectly state), they are from ‘Fascinating Womanhood’ by Helen Andelin, which was published in 1965, and is still in print. it is a book about how to get your husband to fall madly in love with you.

books on how to be a great husband and father.

I am looking for a self help book which will help me to be a better husband (primarily) and father. I am really terrible at these things. Any suggestions?

“How to Win Friends and Influence People”

How to summarize a book.

I am reading a book on Rick Husband the commander who died on space shuttle Columbia. I am wondering how to summarize the 1st 2 chapters in the book? My former english instructor wants me to summarize each chapter in the book to become a better reader.

To make a summary, you need to identify the salient information which will give you a ‘stand alone’ version of the story without all the minor details.For example (and I haven’t read the book, so am only making things up for examples sake) if those chapters are about his early life, you need only use the information important to the book overall (eg: how he became a space commander). So you could say, “Rick Husband wanted to be an astronaut from the time he was twelve. He studied aeronautics and physics at university and graduated with a PhD. He applied to NASA at age 24 and began training for his first mission at 26…” etc.I hope this has helped you write your own summary. Good luck.

  1. well, i am divorced, if your husband have an extra girl robot and want to get rit off i am will to buy from him. I am willing to give it a try. if it work out well i will marred it after you two can be a broom and pride maid. lol

  2. Kind of like how some women want their husbands to call them from work or bring them flowers for no reason. They really enjoy it, but if they have to ask you for it or remind you of it directly, it is not the same. I think you should read the book, but you decide which parts of it you want to follow (if any). Also since he opened the door, you should definately take advantage and give him a book about being a better husband or lover or whatever you want him to do more of around the house.

  3. Good luckI don’t know what your weak and strong points are, plus I don’t know what exactly she’s like, so I can’t give very specific advice, but basically, communicate with her (that includes a LOT of listening to her, trying to understand her) and respect her.www.marriagebuilders.com is a pretty good website.xo

  4. Show her respect at all times, and make her feel like a woman. be trustworthy, and understanding. also be trusting of her.

  5. The Nazis published a handbook for newly married couples in the mid 1930s, outlining how to be a good husband/wife/couple (at least,in National Socialist,German terms).It was, unsurprisingly, a bestseller.Although not specifically aimed at just husbands, it’s the closest I’m aware of,as it does contain specific information on how to be a ‘good’ husband.

  6. If your only been married for only a just over a month, what makes you think that you need improving?I love reading. I would be grad if I were you. Buying him self-development like others suggested is a good idea too!

  7. Sometimes, letting go seems like the easiest thing to do. But think about this: you’ve invested so much of your time and energy into another person; you’ve made a solemn promise; and you still know there’s love, even if it’s hiding underneath the surface. This website will show you how to save a marriage and avoid divorce, even if you’re the only one trying https://tr.im/Hh72O

  8. I had a cousin and a friend whose marriage ended due to bipolor but ONLY because the spouse stopped taking the medicine and became abusive. So you have to figure out a way to ensure he takes his meds. If he tries to stop, grind them up and put them in his food? If that holds true, then you can get thru the rest because we all have spouses with big issues.

  9. One of the most important tools that professional therapists, counselors, and psychiatrists use to cope with all of the difficult things they deal with in their jobs is…therapy and counselling. Some of the stuff they hear and see is horrific, and they need an outlet to vent, and to deal with the emotions that it brings up for them. You are going to be a professional care-giver if you choose to stick this marriage out. You will need tips and tricks, a place to safely be angry, diappointed, and a whole host of other negative emotions, and simple mental support. Bi-polars are notoriously difficult to treat because when they are feeling good they refuse their meds…and then they crash. And the cycle starts again. Make sure that you are in a good mental place so that the cycles have less power to disrupt your lives. Seek a place that will be your refuge during the bad times, and you can get through it.

  10. Just the fact you are trying to make it better is probably a great start. Most dont even think about stuff like that.

  11. I found that it helped a lot to understand what is expected of Filipino husbands and fathers. As foreigners, we sometimes get a reputation for being pushovers- and it’s human nature to take advantage of this. If they try something they could not get over on a Filipino man, don’t let it get over on you.EDIT: It’s also important that he take responsibility for this himself. One exception is that if he isn’t good with the meds, you have to make sure he takes them. If I don’t watch my husband take them, he doesn’t. That adversely affects me, so I choose to do the meds.

  12. i don’t know much but every good woman will be a good wife and a good mother.So don’t change THAT person. If you do…that that’s where you will go wrong.

  13. She married you for who you are right?

  14. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE ABLE TO DEAL WITH THIS ILLNESS BECAUSE IT’S NOT SOMETHING THAT CAN BE CURED BUT MANAGED. IT’S A CHEMICAL IMBALANCE IN THE BRAIN.Don’t let her pull this, tell her you have to share expenses, and that is that. Do not go into debt buying a car for a kid who won’t know how to handle it, will cost you in legal fees, insurance. Forget culture for a second. I smell someone that is using you. Big time. Son, you are getting played like a Stradivarius. Money issues must be dealt with.,sorry chicka but this is marriage. Don’t be used or fool, the gal is using you for a bank.

  15. Mike B

  16. Yes, well I think Mr. Perfect needs a tip or two about how to be the perfect husband. Buy him a few books and highlight the areas that you want him to be better about. The road goes both ways. I think he is a wimp. Most husbands actually have conversations with their wife about things they would like in their marriage and wives do the same thing.

  17. Pace yourself, marriage is a marathon not a sprint!

  18. My husband has never MADE me do anything – and I’ve never made him do anything. IF there is something either of us wants the other to change or do differently we would sit down and actually talk – communicate face to face – about our issues or concerns. If he has a problem, he can some to me & we will talk it out together – and most likely reach a compromise. But, if you’re ok with this, the whatever – to each his own, I guess!

  19. So….I don’t see a problem…Do you?

  20. Be yourself ..she married you not the person you are trying to be.

  21. I also maintain very good relations with my wife’s family ($100 a month, plus $20 or so for good report cards for kids back in the provinces is fine). Any nonsense, it’s easy enough to get her mother or father on the phone and sort it out- remember they lose face if their daughter is not a good wife and fails to show delicadeza.

  22. In order to manage with a variable despair the patient NEEDS to uncover anything comfort they may be able to while they’re down. When the patient is up, they’re going to wish to make the pleasant use in their time. If you will have a courting limitation, which it feels like, then I could propose you ask your medical professional for a referal to a marraige steerage councillor akin to Relate. Medicating manic despair is elaborate, the medicines prescribed for the downs like vallium and librium are addictive and will make the crisis worse. The mania isn’t more often than not considered as hazardous so isn’t dealt with. Diet can be utilized to minimize mania fairly. Avoiding caffiene and alcohol is mainly encouraged for all depressions. I could additionally endorse a low G.I. nutrition. Camomile, chook and white fish, will broaden tiredness. If you ask a herbalist I’m definite they’re going to produce other strategies for calming. You in general have to negotiate extra time clear of each and every different, is my pleasant notion.

  23. MAKE SURE THE DRUGS ARE NECESSARY, DO THE RESEARCH. I WAS MORE AGITATED AND SUICIDAL ON THE DRUGS, THAN WITH OUT THEM. I STARTED RECOGNIZING MY STRESSORS AND STARTING COUNTING AND PRAYING WHEN I FELT LIKE MY ANGER WAS GETTING THE BEST OF ME. I DON’T TAKE ANY MEDS AT THE MOMENT BUT DO THERAPY. SOMETIMES IT JUST HELPS TO HAVE SOMEONE TO TALK TO. YOU JUST HAVE TO FIND OUT WHAT WORKS FOR YOUR FAMILY. THE LOVE AND SUPPORT OF MY FAMILY ALONG WITH MY STRONG FAITH HAS HELPED ME LIVE A VERY GOOD AND PRODUCTIVE AND HAPPY LIFE..

  24. I just read today about some coaching techniques. It said to tell people how to do if that person is willing to listen and follow your guidance. But let them read by themselves if they are kind of people who believe themselves. Your husband might just use that technique with you.

  25. Not sure of a book, but I would suggest this: make medication compliance non- negotiable. Require that HE go to therapy, and you go too if it helps. My husband and I both have mental illnesses.what pierce said. don’t change too much. improve but maintain those things that she fell inlove with… ie ur sense of humor, ur consideration for others, ur skillz in the ….Thank you

  26. They could say I’m first rate. I will speak approximately some thing, however I’m now not well at gabbing and small speak. I can fake to be, although… I feel there is a change. I can channel Seinfeld episodes if there may be want. This location offers a fake affect of the quantity of crap I spew on any given day, that’s a brief order in truly lifestyles. I’m an great listener and mediator, which makes it tempting for me to get worried within the little spats that pass on right here… then I consider that this location is stuffed with petty arguments, become bored and retain on with my possess targeted manufacturer of bullsh*t.

  27. Hair colour and all that balongne…is material…remember that. IT’s whats on the inside that counts…and she has already that! She married you already!

  28. I HOPED THAT HELPED. IF YOU NEED ANY MORE HELP. FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME. I’VE BEEN LIVING WITH BIPOLAR FOR OVER 10YRS NOW, SO I’M A WEALTH OF KNOWLEDGE.

  29. IT WILL TAKE PATIENCE AND LOVE TO GET THROUGH THE TOUGH TIMES. I WASN’T DIAGNOSED UNTIL AFTER I WAS MARRIED. MY HUSBAND HAS HAD TO RESTRAIN ME, 302 ME, YOU NAME IT BUT WE’VE BEEN MARRIED ALMOST 10 YRS. HE REALLY BECAME INVOLVED IN LEARNING AND UNDERSTANDING WHAT I HAD TO LIVE AND DEAL WITH. HE CAME TO DOCTOR’S VISITS, THERAPY SESSIONS. IT TAKES A LOT OF COMMITMENT TO STAY IN A MARRIAGE WITH SOMEONE WHO HAS A MENTAL ILLNESS BUT IT CAN BE DONE WITH EFFORT. SO IF YOU LOVE HIM THEN YOU BOTH CAN AND WILL MAKE IT THROUGH.lol.. but seriously, be who u are.

  30. Sorry,love, but personally I think he’s an arrogant S.O.B. If you buy books like that, that’s one thing, but it’s not for him to do so. Why don’t you go out and buy a book on how to be a good husband? That might cure him!oh.. and sometimes, you’ll have to assess our moods before u say a seemingly innocent insult.while it may not be the most appropriate way to communicate, I think FrenchCan007 G is probably right. There may something in the book that he wants to tell you, but doesn’t want to have to tell you.

  31. It sounds like your wife is a lucky woman, I’m sure she couldn’t want anymore from you.

  32. Don’t take things too seriously though… nobody’s perfect, it sounds like you care a lot, so you’ll probably be a great husband. 🙂

  33. If a man think he need to have his wife to read a book how to be a good wife. I think he think he just inventing a robot so now he have to programing it to work.Well girl ……..just kick back and laugh a little, you have a good day

  34. Always tell her that you love her, make her feel like the most beautiful woman in the room and communicate. Another thing that keeps the marriage going is just having fun. Laugh with each other and always make time for just the two of you. The fact that you are reading about the subject is great. Good luck to the both of you.

  35. Compliment her every day, give her back and foot rubs often and do lots of things together and enjoy life before kids.

  36. SPEAKING AS THE SPOUSE WHO IS BIPOLAR. THERE’S REALLY NO BOOKS OUT THERE. WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO IS REALLY EDUCATE YOURSELF WITH THE DISORDER ON A PERSONAL LEVEL BY READING THE ACTUAL BOOKS ON DIAGNOSIS. ATTENDING SOME SESSIONS OF THERAPY AND ASK THE DOCTORS QUESTIONS YOU SEE NEEDING TO BE ASKED. YOU HAVE TO START PAYING CLOSER ATTENTION TYO SIGNS OF MOOD SWINGS OR POTENTIAL HOSPITALIZATION SITUATIONS. PAY ATTENTION TO THE REACTIONS TO THE MEDS.EDIT: I just wanted to add that it’s a rare case of bipolar that is better without the drugs. The most used medication for it is Lithium, it has been in use for at least 50 years, and it’s a $4 prescription. No one is making any big profit on it. I’m all about holistic medicine, but this is a chemical imbalance, and it takes a chemical to fix it. Because bipolar is cyclical, someone can do well off of the meds until it cycles back around. Then you have a long period of hell trying to build the drugs back up to a proper level. It’s not realistic for me, my daughter, my sister or my husband to go without medication. We’re all bipolar.

  37. I AGREE WITH WHAT MOST HAVE SAID BUT AS A PERSON WHOSE BEEN ON THE MEDS FOR YEARS, I CAN TELL YOU THAT SOMETIMES IT’S WHAT MAKES THINGS WORSE. YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE IT’S THE RIGHT COMBO. I HAVEN’T BEEN HOSPITALIZED IN OVER 5YRS. I’M LIVING PROOF THAT IT’S POSSIBLE BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS BOTH PEOPLE KNOW WHAT’S BEST FOR THE FAMILY AND WHAT THEY ARE CAPABLE OF. SINCE I’VE IDENTIFIED MY SIGNS, IT’S EASY FOR TO KNOW WHEN AND IF THE DRUGS ARE NECESSARY. WE HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT THE DURG COMPANIES WANT US DEPENED ON THEIR PRODUCT AND THE DOCTORS WANT TO GET PAID AS WELL SO PLEASE DO THE RESEARCH ON YOUR OWN. I DON’T WANT TO SOUND LIKE I’M JUST IN A HAPPY SOPT BUT WITH SUPPORT I’VE BEEN MED FREE FOR 3YRS. BUT I ALSO USE HERBAL SUPPLEMENTS TO HELP WITH SOMEOF THE ISSUES. THE MEDS JUST DIDN’T WORK FOR ME PRSONALLY.

  38. I think it is beautiful that you want to be a better man………..Indulge yourself reading Self Help articles about Parenting & Marriage. You can click the links below.

  39. I buy my husband books and when he brings some home we have fun. He just wants to have things in common. Makes good dinner conversation.

  40. one day she may laugh… and on the next she can blow up, make a huge fight… take her wedding ring off and smash it with a hammer…then be upset because it wasn’t as gratifying as she thought it would be… and then cry.
