The key is to learn from your mistakes. Make some changes man. If you do the same things in your second marriage as you did in your first, your second marriage is likely to end in divorce too. There’s a few things you need to avoid. Some of them are common sense. Some of them are less obvious.
This should be obvious but you’d be surprised how many guys just don’t get it. Other than telling her that you haven’t bought her birthday gift yet when you have, there is no excuse for lying. This is your wife! There is nothing that you should not feel comfortable discussing with her. Let it out. For better or worse. Tell the truth.
Be Loving and Attentive
Your wife needs you to show her that you love her. Telling her isn’t enough. You need to tell her AND show her. Hold her hand. Open doors (including the car door) for her. Pull out her chair for her before she sits down. Tell her you love her and show her that you love her and be consistent.
Keep The Passion Going
Don’t slack off and get lazy when it comes to passion. You married her for what’s inside of her. The way she is as a person. That has nothing to do with her weight. Let her know that you desire her and that you are attracted to her regardless of her weight, how she wears her hair or anything else. She’s your wife.
Help Her Out Around The House
Cook for her once in a while. Do a load of laundry a few times a month. Don’t just pick up after yourself but help her clean the house. Do the dishes or load the dishwasher. There’s one hundred and one things that she does every day in the home. She could use some help with a lot of them.
Divorces are pretty common these days. You’re not alone in your second marriage. The last thing you want is another divorce under your belt. Make some changes this time around. We learn so much more from our mistakes than we do from the things that we do right. You can’t expect your second marriage to be a success if you do things the same way that you did during your first marriage. Remember what you learned from the demise of your first marriage and make your second marriage a marriage for life.
