The issue of respect and love in relationships has been debated: men supposedly need respect and women need love. However, many women do not find love because they have not found respect. According to experts on the subject, a man should be doing these 6 things that indicate that he respects you within the relationship between the two. If not, you are not having the basic respect you need in a relationship to build healthily.

Dr. Emerson Eggerichs is an internationally known public speaker on the subject of relationships between men and women, with more than three decades of scientific research and advice. In her latest book, “Love and Respect,” Eggerichs explains why the needs of each sex in a relationship can vary, certainly not to say that men only need respect (and not love) and women only need love (and not love). I respect).

6 ways a man should respect his wife in a relationship

There must be a balance of both. Although it is a set of behaviors between the two that are built to learn to live as a couple and must be reciprocal, If the man in the relationship does not respect the woman , then surely he cannot love her.

1. Pay attention to it

Whether she’s simply telling about a funny thought she had the other day, or saying how something has made her feel, pay attention. When we share things and express our emotions with our partner, it is because we trust her enough to do so. If a man can’t afford a few moments of his time to show a woman that he respects and can pay attention to her, then he shouldn’t be in a relationship in the first place.

2. Supports her when she needs it most

Her dreams, her ambitions, her goals, supports her in all that and more. Most women are dreamers, but they are also doers. Regardless of whether someone is in their space cheering them on, or not, they will get things done. But if a woman is in a relationship with a man who doesn’t support her, then he obviously doesn’t respect her either.

3. Communicates openly

Listen and respond. One of the best ways to show someone that you respect them is by communicating with them in an open and trustworthy way. Say what has to be said, and not keep things inside. When a man shows that he is capable of speaking from his heart, without holding back his anger or resentment, then he shows respect. Silent treatment, or ignoring someone, is simply rude because that supposedly special person is not being given their place. If something is bothering either of you in the relationship, they should make it known rather than keep it inside.

4. Make your partner a priority

We are not saying by this that a man’s life should revolve around his woman, and that he should worship her as the goddess that she is (although if you both agree to this, go ahead!), But we do let him know that she It is important. When it comes to choosing between helping her with something she needs or going personal, sometimes the decision must come first. The reason? Because she’s more than likely made her man a priority on several occasions, and it’s good to return the favor.

5. Show kindness

We all have bad days, and when it comes down to it, we really want our partner to be there to help us and bring some sunshine into our life. Some days we are unable to find the light ourselves, so a little act of kindness can go a long way. Giving her a random compliment, smiling and hugging her, making her a surprise dinner, just making an effort to try to lift her spirits means a lot and is a great sign of respect.

6. Be honest

This is obvious right? Unfortunately, some men think they can do all of the above and skip the most important part: honesty. Without honesty there can never be any level of respect in the relationship . If a man is not honest with a woman, how can he expect her to be nothing but disappointed, angry, and confused? And yes, there will be times when being honest might not be the most pleasant option, but in the long run she will appreciate you more for it than for lying to her.

Bottom line: the best way to earn the respect of anyone is to respect yourself. As Dostoevsky once said, “If you want to be respected by others, it is best to respect yourself.” Just for that, just out of self-respect will you force others to respect you.
