Your wife is the most influential and important person in your life. She has walked every phase of your life holding your hand and always treated you with love, care, and respect. It is high time you did the same and made some extra effort to show her the respect she deserves.
Here Are Tips On How To Respect Your Wife
Talk more to her– Talk more to her about her problems, her insecurities, and her aspirations in life. The first step towards showing your partner respect is to get to know them better, and you can’t know them if you don’t talk.
Be polite-No matter how furious you are or how tense she is, never let a bad word out of your mouth, and always be polite to her whenever you talk. It is very important to talk to her in the right way if you want her to feel respected.
Address her as your better half– Make her feel like an equal, which she rightly is and whenever introducing her to relatives or colleagues, make sure to address her as your significant other or your better half.
Comfort her– Comfort her when she needs it the most or when she is having an extremely bad day. Be the warmth that she needs when the sun seems to be beyond the horizon, and she would know how much you respect her.
Introduce her to your colleagues– Keep her engaged in both your personal and work life. Do not shy away from introducing her to your office staff and make her feel valued in all aspects of your life, be it home or work.
Keep the house tidy– Always keep the house looking and feeling neat and tidy even when she does not have the energy to do it herself. It will show how much you respect her efforts towards keeping your life healthy.
Do not criticize her more often– Instead of criticizing her or countering everything that she says, try and be more accepting of her. Understand her perspective and be accepting of it; only then will you be able to truly respect her as a person.
Be the man she deserves– Be the life partner that she thought you would turn out to be, be the man that she fell in love with and never fail any of her expectations, and even more so, do not do anything that would even slight her.
Be a good listener– Develop good listening skills. Instead of just waiting for your turn to speak, listen to what she has to say, understand it, and then tell her what you truly feel. Listening is a key part of any relationship, and if you don’t listen to her, you don’t respect her.
Work harder– Work just a little bit harder every day, put in that extra bit of effort every single time, knowing that someone is waiting for you at home and she expects you to be better at everything you do. Show her the respect she deserves and work harder.
Always make time for her-Even you are too busy with all that is going on. Even if you can hardly find time to catch your breath, remember that all she needs from you is a text saying that you are alright and that you love her. You can do that much, can’t you?
Be her biggest believer– Be the person that constantly tells her that you believe in her to do great things in life and that no matter how big the failure or how impossible the goal seems, there is nothing that she can’t achieve if she puts her heart in it.
Tell her she is the one– Keep reminding her that she is the woman of your life, that she is the only person that makes you happy, and also that she is the only one and you would not even be able to imagine your life without her in it.
Make her feel important– Make her feel like the most important person in your life, which she rightly is. Bring her gifts, chocolates and make all the efforts that you can to make her feel like the queen of your life.
Take mutual decisions– Before deciding on an outcome, make sure you guys are on the same page and are completely accepting of it. Have her have an equal say in whatever important call you take in your life, and she would feel the respect that she deserves.
Share your knowledge with her– Let her into your head and share with her all your past experiences, incidents, and all the necessary information that has led to you being the person that you are today.
Avoid conflicts– Try and avoid any unnecessary confrontations unless needed absolutely. Conflicts occur from a difference in mindset and perception, and instead of fighting over it, try and understand what the other person is trying to say.
Find out what is absent– Ask yourself what is that one thing or maybe the things that are missing in this relationship which could set up the mutual respect that she needs from you. Ask yourself what you could do to make it better.

Build better communication– Try and work towards building better communication so that there are lesser conflicts, misunderstandings, and lesser chances for you to ever disrespect her. Keep it in your head, and you’ll be good to go.
No cribbing or nagging– Cribbing and crying are amongst a few activities that only the kids are privileged enough to exercise, and you are no more a kid, so you better treat her with respect and keep all the childish acts away.
Do not get offended easily– In today’s time, there is nothing left in the world that at least one person does not find to be offensive. Anything and everything is perceived as offensive these days, and a time like this dissociates you from being offended on small matters and being respectful.
Help her realize her potential– Help her reach the place that she has the capability of reaching. Motivate her, encourage her to keep pushing her to strive for greatness, and materialize the potential that she holds inside her.
Do not be contradictory– Do not be contradictory in your actions and words. Do not say one thing and do something else. Also, as a couple, do not try to contradict her and try to be complementary to the kind of person that she is.

Do not compare her– Do not compare her with any of your past partners or even a person that you know right now. Respect her individuality and respect her as a person. Do not expect her to go east on you should you mistake comparing her with anyone else.
Don’t look for approval– Do not turn to her when you need approval or validation. She loves you the way you are, and she loves you for the kind of person that you are. You will only disrespect her if you over-push her and act like a kid.

Do not take her for granted– No matter how many years you spend with her or how close you guys get, never make the mistake of taking her for granted and making her feel unwanted. It would be the most disrespectful thing that you can do.
Remember all the promises– Remember all the vows and promises that you made to her before you guys got together, and make sure to fulfill all and keep up all of them over time and respect her in the same way through it all.
Be her protector– Be the shield that would protect her from any harm, negativity, and any other bad things in the world from happening. The right way to respect her is to protect her and make her feel warm and secure in your presence.
Be very calm– Be very calm and composed in your approach whenever you are around her. Even if she has the entire world on top of her head and wants to lash out, you have the responsibility to calm her down, and you can’t do that if your head is on fire.
