Don’t Even Expect a “Thank You” from Your Wife

thank youSome of you might’ve already concluded that I’m crazy after you read that headline. Don’t worry. I’m not crazy — I’m just being real.

Let me clear the air.

Why in the world would any husband in his right mind NOT expect a “thank you” from his wife? If he displays an act of love or kindness towards her, shouldn’t he rightfully expect a “thank you” at the very least?

The blunt answer is: No. He shouldn’t.

And here’s why.

You’re supposed to have unconditional love for your wife — otherwise known as agape love. One way to explain unconditional love is this:

Everything I do for you and give to you is done without expectation. I do these things simply because I love you — not because I expect anything in return from you.

Not even a “thank you.”

Now ladies, does this mean that you shouldn’t say “thank you”? Of course not! You absolutely should. It shows your appreciation for your husband’s love.

This might sound contradicting, but it’s not.

The whole point is that the husband should be in the frame of mind to love and give to his wife without expecting anything whatsoever in return. This is the deepest kind of love.

So, fellas. Although your wife will continue to thank you — just remember to throw every expectation of yours out the window.

And if one day, she does forget to say “thank you,” she has the confidence that you’ll still love her and give her your all.

Makes sense?
