    It is really important to maintain trust in the relationship. This is the main point. Without this purpose there is no relation. The next most important thing is to be able to build this point. That is, what we can conclude is that between two people there may be passion, but what will prevail is love. Love means that after the enchantment, there was friendship and complicity.

    There’s all sorts of antiquated marriage advice out there, but it turns out that there’s one relationship trope that actually holds true: “Happy wife, happy life.”

    A recent study published in the Journal of Marriage and Family found that men who are unhappily married may still be happy with their lives overall — as long as their wives are satisfied with their marriages.

    “A wife’s happiness in the marriage has the power to overtake a husband’s marital unhappiness to make his overall life quite pleasant,” Deborah Carr, professor of sociology at Rutgers University and co-author of the study, told The Huffington Post. “That was the finding that makes people say, ‘Happy wife, happy life.’ But it cuts the other way, ‘Miserable wife, miserable life.’”

    Husbands and wives are socialized to handle the ups and downs of marriage differently.

    Carr and her co-author Vicki A. Freedman, a professor at the University of Michigan, analyzed daily diary entries from the 2009 Disability and Use of Time supplement to the Panel Study of Income Dynamics, a longitudinal household survey of 18,000 individuals conducted by the University of Michigan. Both spouses surveyed were at least 50 years old and at least one spouse was 60 years old or older. Marital satisfaction was rated in each entry on a scale of one to four.

    Husbands who rated the quality of their marriage a one but whose wives rated the marriage a four were happy with their lives overall, while husbands who rated their marriages a one whose wives also rated the marriage a one reported low overall well-being. The inverse wasn’t true for wives: Women’s happiness didn’t seem to be affected by husbands’ satisfaction with their marriages.

    One reason for this discrepancy in happiness, Carr explained, is that if a man is unhappy in the relationship but the wife is happy, she’s more likely to provide him benefits that enhance his overall life — she’ll engage in sexual relations, provide emotional support and take on household chores.

    As for why women’s happiness doesn’t seem to be affected by their husbands’ marital satisfaction, Carr conjectured that wives generally have no idea if husbands are happy with marriages or not because men aren’t socialized to discuss feelings, good or bad.

    “If a wife is unhappy with her marriage, she’s going to do something about it,” Carr said. “She might complain; she might be less forthcoming with love and support. Men are not the ones to say, ‘We need to talk about the relationship.’ If they’re unhappy, they’re going to sit in their chair and stew over it.”

    Gender differences could explain why wives tend to be less satisfied with marriages overall.

    Like many researchers before her, Carr found that men tended to rate their marriages higher than women did. (She also found this in a previous study she co-authored.) This could be because women are socialized to think about their relationships and scrutinize them more than men, Carr said. But she also had another guess as to why men seem to be happier with marriage.

    “If a marriage is good, it often is due to the stuff the the wife is doing, the love and support that she’s giving,” Carr said. “Consequently, that means the husband gets more.”

    Wives in the generation surveyed tended to take on more housework, like food preparation and household chores, with 59 percent of their activities taking place in the home. Plus, Carr found that a spouse’s illness only affected women’s happiness and had no effect on the life satisfaction of men. This is because women tend to take on caregiving responsibilities for husbands while husbands generally let friends or children tend to wives who were ill.

    Clearly, the scales are often tipped in the husband’s favor when it comes to partner support, which could explain all of the research claiming that marriage is good for men’s health (but not necessarily women’s).

    The best fix? Open communication.

    The problem with this imbalance and discrepancy in marital satisfaction is that it’s not the best recipe for a sustainable relationship, Carr said. She recommended that husbands and wives take the time to talk about what’s bad and good in their marriage regularly so that they’re on the same page.

    “Maybe they won’t use the most elegant language, but just let them be heard and hear them on their own terms” she said. “A clunky conversation is better than no conversation.”

    It's true that happy wife .happy life. In, marriage if wife is happy she will support her husband in emotional aspect and trough action. If the wife is not happy or miserable it will affect the husband and their relationship it takes them into misunderstanding and worst break up.

    When it comes to married people, there’s always been a saying that those who have happy wives actually lead happier lives. Even more so, married people tend to follow this advice to keep their domestic life happy.

    But for those of you who are still in doubt – it has been proven by scientific studies now!

    Yes, the phrase “Happy wife, Happy life” may actually make sense scientifically.

    Trust and love are the two pillars of marriage – if even one shakes, then the entire foundation of marriage crumbles. Scientists have looked further into the reasons responsible for a happy married life.

    Happiness is a choice. Marriage is a long term adjustment of the behavior of a couple. Once you accept your husband's personality and failures; you will begin to understand him and be a his back to support him.
    I am "happily" married for 22 years now. I quoted "happily", because life is not a monotonous happy moment all the time. There are ups and downs, winning and losing, sweetness and fights, and tears and joys. But in all these, the wife can choose to be happy. In testing times, when we look at the positive side of it. It will make us a strong positive person. When the same situation arises; you know better then because you overcome that before.
    We choose to be happy so that our children will grow up with values. Armed with the knowledge that life is not perfect but good things are about to come.

    a married man or woman or lets say happy wife is the one the husband on how she treat her wife in a peaceful life and how you give respect love special treatment to a wife and on how you raised your siblings to bring up with them the christian life so that the faith love and respect of a wife will surely give it in return

    When talking of happy wife and happy life, the subject are relative......having a happy is a mother and driver to better live, generally happy life is a tools that lead to bringing happy wife to the entire family. Is a simple word to have a better life, and it will definitely take impart on house wife and even house hold and business activities as well. If there is happy life you will definitely have happy wife, but having a happy wife without having happy life is like having cap without Heald.

    I just got married three months ago and I can say that I am a happy wife.
    My husband is so loving and caring. I thought that he would never change but he did,not for the worse but for the better. Every single day that passes by, I can feel that he is loving me more and more. In turn, I am loving him too like never before.
  13. For me having wife which will be your partner in life will be one of the best thing that will happen on a man's life, A man will be motivated to work hard for his wife and his family, I have many friends that are not very nice to others when were young and always get into troubles but changed to become nice after they got married, maybe because they have the mindset of being mature and leaving they old doings so that he can provide their family a decent way of living.

    My wife is the hostess in our beautiful home. She smiles. I mirror her smile. Aroma from the kitchen drifts into sitting room, hunger bites harder. I long for her. I long to eat her meals. She is a shade against all the troubles in the world. Last year she was very moody perhaps due to weight of our first born inside her. Things were very gloomy in the house then. Now she is happier and I am too

    THAT is a GREAT title of a post. I sometimes joke around saying "Unhappy wife, equals Unhappy Life" :) We men certainly have to think about what to do to make our wives happy even if it does not come to us naturally. It is not an easy task, but if we take some time out of our day to actually think about what our wives would appreciate us doing for them, then we can usually come up with some ideas and manage to do it before they start nagging about how they want us to do it :)
