Steps to Becoming a Submissive Wife
Allow Him to Be Your Hero.
Men are born with a desire to feel heroic. It's why they come to our aid when we're in trouble. So let him guard you, provide for you, and comfort you when you're sad. You'll appreciate him even more as a result.
A subservient wife cheerfully accepts her husband's heroism. Your husband adores you and wishes to do everything in his power to make you happy. Allow him to sweep you off your feet and help you get back on your feet when you're down.
Pay attention to your husband's words, but don't always respond.
Your husband will frequently bemoan his job, politics, and the status of the world. Men have a preconceived notion of how the world should be run in the end. You'll frequently disagree with him inwardly, believing, for example, that he handled a workplace conflict incorrectly.
Recognize your husband's feelings while stating only the bare minimum. This allows him to express his frustrations while also allowing him to rest, knowing that he won't have to deal with another stressful dispute. Trying to change him or his attitude may exacerbate the problem. Instead, concentrate on assisting him and being available to him.
Always make an effort to appear your best for him, especially when you're at home.
Your husband wants to come home to you because you are a beautiful woman. Maintain your fitness, wear a feminine hairdo (medium to long length), and wear form-fitting clothing—even tight sweatpants would suffice.
You don't have to put on any makeup. Simply preserve a youthful appearance on your face (maintaining your eyebrows, for example). Your husband will notice if you make the effort to embrace your feminine side and look attractive, and he will be quite glad that you are taking the time to look well.
If you can afford it, consider being a housewife
Of course, you must enjoy the prospect of choosing this path, and it must be feasible in terms of your financial condition. Recognize that your focus on establishing a warm refuge at home will create a unique universe of love that nothing in the outer world can break. It's a joy in and of itself to be a traditional housewife.
You will not be subjected to the same 40-hour weekly deadlines as so many other women. You won't have to juggle commuting, work, and stress with the cleaning, cooking, decorating, and lovemaking that go into making a house a home.
