Different article writers, authors or even bloggers will have diverse definitions, views or opinions on the qualities of a good husband. It may seem like an easy topic to discuss or talk about, but the depth of the subject matter is too profound. Typically, a married woman would define a good husband long before they are even married. This thought is for women who want a happy-ever-after love story. For it is every woman’s dream to find the perfect man to be her husband.
For one, a good husband is a reflection of his wife. Some may agree while others may not, but this is insanely true. The way a woman treats her man and vice versa, is by far the biggest expression of their love and affection to each other. A good husband is only a by-product of a good wife.
However, there are certain qualities a woman is looking for in a man. This is the same scenario with a wife, who only wants a good husband to take care of her and their children. But, how do you even define a good husband? It is like interpreting a line from a song that says: “how do you catch a cloud and pin it down?”
There is no such thing as a perfect wife or husband, only individuality and differences. There is no such thing as a perfect relationship, only fleeting ones. But, there is such thing as uniqueness, distinctiveness and respect.
A good husband is an excellent provider. He provides for the needs of his family be it in financial, moral spiritual or emotional aspects of life. He knows how to support his family especially in times of distress and problems. He is there to bring happiness to a family he is nurturing. Also, a good husband is a better listener than a talker. He listens without questioning and understands that every moment in their family’s life is precious and worth the two ears he has. But it does not mean that he cannot communicate. He also has the authority to speak without being tyrannical, for he knows he is the master of the house, and being a master means being a gentle follower as well.
A good husband is honest, loyal and faithful. He should be a one-woman-man that falls in love with the same woman over and over again. He needs to be steadfast and dedicated to his wife and children. An admirable husband avoids arguments. But if arguments happen (this can never be avoided in a lifetime), he knows how to apologize and humbles himself for the mistakes he has committed. He should be sensitive enough in the sense that he knows how to respect the feelings of the people that surround him.
Moreover, a good husband is patient and can adapt to changes positively. People change physically and so does the world. Changes are necessary for people to grow in a relationship. A good husband should not be tempted to give up and find an easy way out of a relationship. He should know how to adapt to changes and accept things the way they are. People do change for the better.
Lastly, a commendable husband is a person who has loving heart and a God-fearing person. He loves and honors his family as well as the creator of heaven and earth. He must be a good example to his children. He must be a reflection of reliability and capability. He must be the source of strength of his family. He must be an image of a perfect father. He must be the husband his wife imagined him to be.
