How does a woman want to be loved?
I found a quote that answers the question: “(Women want to be) loved by someone special who would be willing to lay down their life for the purpose of true love. ” Floyd Samons
How true is that?
Women love deeply. And they want to be loved back in equal measure.
So let’s talk about how women want to be loved because loving her right is not always complicated.

10 ways wives your wife wants to be loved (Tips for a husband who wants to love his wife well)
1. Love her heart
With it’s quirks, fierceness and humanity.
“Love me when I least deserve it because that is when I really need it.” Swedish Proverb
2. Love her physical beauty
A lot of times, wives see their beauty through the eyes of their husbands. Like when your gaze lingers when she walks into a room.
Tell her often what you love, be specific. Not just with words, but by how you look at her, how you treat her.
3. Love her mind
Ask her opinion. Engage her in conversation. Seek feedback. Encourage her to think and dream bigger.
4. Love her home
Share the burdens, the chores and responsibilities of your home.
She wants to know that you care about the daily goings on. She appreciates the hard work outside the home but your work inside your home is also a practical love language.
5. Love what she loves
You might struggle through the chick flick. But she loves that you try..dozing off with your fingers curled around hers is very romantic.
6. When you don’t agree with her, do so in love
“Husbands, love your wives [be affectionate and sympathetic with them] and do not be harsh or bitter or resentful toward them.” Colossians 3:19 (AMP)
7. Love her children
Someone said one of the best ways to love your wife is to love your children. Father them well.
You will be surprised by her “other children” too. Big dreams, ideas, passions. They are precious to her and a good word, a listening ear, a strong man presence blesses her to no end.
8. Love her community
She’s a creature of community. Encourage her, release her to meet her friends. Participate in your community.
9. Love her burdens
Sometimes she needs to release. Listen without trying to fix her or her problem. A hug, a text message “I am proud of you” goes a long way.
10. Nurture your relationship with God
For the Christian wife, nothing makes her more secure in marriage than knowing her husband is fully submitted to Christ’s Authority.
