    Treat your wife like a human being, help her, and tell her every day how much you love her.

    Don't cheat on your relationship. That's top! Respect your wife and treat her kindly, this will make her very close to you. Always tell her you love her, and now and then surprise her with a little gift or take her somewhere nice- remember small things matter, even asking her about how her day went and help a little when you can. Sweet words don't cost you anything, but spent wisely they will bring you lots of happiness.

    Clearly, any marriage of two imperfect humans is going to have its problems, but husbands and wives can improve their relationship by applying Bible principles.

    In Marriage, Commitment Involves

    Obligation "What you vow, pay. Better is it that you vow not than that you vow and do not pay."—Ecclesiastes 5:4, 5.

    Teamwork "Two are better than one . . . For if one of them should fall, the other one can raise his partner up."—Ecclesiastes 4:9, 10.

    Self-Sacrifice "There is more happiness in giving than there is in receiving."—Acts 20:35.

    A Long-Term View "Love . . . endures all things."—1 Corinthians 13:4, 7.

    Sure, lots of tips --- easy to list, sometimes difficult to remember.

    Firstly, what is marriage.... If you do not believe it is Admiration, Respect, Passion and Trust, do some adjusting. Under each of those headings, understand that there is also lots of time for each other, shared hobbies, time alone each to yourself, common political views, and religion, and tolerance. It is the ability to solve problems without rage and resentment, and the ability to just "shut the hell up" when you really don't want to. It is efforts to re-establish your bond, by time away from your children, as well as a commitment to those children, your bond and your family to remain emotionally healthy. It is the willingness to get into counseling when it gets a little rocky, to heal your wounded relationship before it bleeds to death. It is being sexually giving, and for sure, exclusive.. and should you decide to have children, to be the kind of parent to them you wish you had had

    Well, To be honest and trustworthy of course. I would say run your wife nice bubble baths, offer her massages.....take her out atleast once a week and help out around the house the best you can when you can. Sometimes cooking dinner or doing a few of the errands is good too. Good Luck and you have a lucky wife to have a husband who is willing to accept suggestion for being a better husband.

    Try doing the dishes and laundry and taking out the trash when its full. Not everyday but if it needs doing do it don't just be a stupid man and leave it for your wife to do. Oh yea all the things everybody except the dog leash guy said too. Good luck.

    good communication, allowing her to feel free to say anything without fear of u shutting her down or finding fault with her, compliment her, protect her, make her your priority, ask her opinion,be gentle and tender with her, call her when your going to be late, show respect for her, carefully choose your words when angry, as some things said can never be taken back, defend her to others,help her with work around the home,share your thoughts with her, always ask god what to do if problems come, and never cheat on her or betray her trust, or lie to her.

    Talk to your wife. Honestly, communication is the key to any good and lasting relationship.

    Let her know that what she thinks is important to you, listen to what she has to say.

    Make her feel special, give her compliments, tell her what it is that you like or love about her.

    Remember, a compliment only lasts for a day. (in a woman's mind) so say something nice every day.

    give her regularly scheduled one hour massages throughout the week. and then draw her up a bubble bath, with candles around. and some al green playing in the background.
