1. Have dinner ready. Plan ahead, even the nigth before , to have a delicious meal ready, on time for his return. This is a way of letting him know that you have been thinking about him and concerned about his needs.
2. Prepare yourself. Take 15 minutes to rest so you’;ll be refreshed when he arrives. Touch-up your make-up, put a ribbon in your hair and be fresh-looking.
3. Over the cooler months of the year you should prepare and light a fire for him to unwind by. Your husband will feel he has reached his haven of rest and order, and it will give you a lift too. After all, catering for his comfort will provide you with immense personal satisfaction.
4. Be happy to see him.
5. Greet him with a warm smile and show sincerity in your desire to please him.
6. Listen to him. You may have a dozen important things to tell him, but the moment of his arrival is not the time. Let him talk first – remember his topics of conversation are more important then yours.
7. Make the evening his. Never complain if he comes home late or goes out to dinner, or other places of entertainment without you. Instead, try to understand his world of strain and pressure and his very real need to be at home and relax.
8. Don’t complain if he’s home late for dinner or even if he stays out all night. Count this as minor compaired to what he might have gone through during the day.
9. Arrange his pillow and offer to take off his shoes. Speak in low, sootheing and pleasant voice.
10. Don’t ask him questions about his actions or question his judgement or integrity. Remember he is the master of the house and as such will always exercise his will with fairness and truthfulness. You have no right to question him.
11. A good wife always knows her place.
