Love and respect are indeed equally crucial for a happy married life. There are lots of things that would feel quite disrespectful to your husband. Four such ways are discussed here.
Manipulation with emotion
Usually, women use moods to control their husband’s response. Sometimes, a wife makes her husband feel guilty in order to induce him to do something. They use the silent treatment, passive aggression, doling out demands, crying for exaggerating failure or pity to manipulate him emotionally.
Questioning the husband’s decision
They hamper their husband’s privacy and start asking how, when and why about every aspect of their life. Sometimes they also ask a question in order to insert their opinion or influence his decision and this is also considered as an act of disrespecting the husband. If a woman treats her husband in a way to show him that he doesn’t have a right sense of judgment then too she is disrespecting him.
Criticizing the husband
If a wife continually criticizes her husband for the petty matters of life, then she doesn’t have respect for him. She doesn’t acknowledge the good that he has done in life, and this gradually makes the husband lose his self-esteem. The wrong use of words can destroy a relationship and the right use can build it. It is up to you how you want to use the words.
Comparing husband to others
A wife must not treat her husband with other perfect guys, saying that he is not smart or knowledgeable. This is because no one is perfect and a wife must understand that her husband loves her. He shouldn’t have to prove himself to her time and again. But if a wife deliberately tells him to be like others because his own persona is not enough, then that is a disrespectful act.
These are the four ways that a wife disrespects a husband and if you think you do them too, try to make amends before it is too late.
