Of course, the things are obvious are like keeping up with the house, taking care of the kids, and such. But there are deeper things that you can do as a wife to help your husband.
Emotionally, physically, sexually, and all. Help him meet his needs and dreams. Be encourager, and supportive.
My husband is bipolar. So he has good and bad days (mood wise). So I’m always checking in to see how is he doing over the course of the day, all the time. Seeing if there was anything I could do for him. Prayer is always easy to do. I always ask God to help my husband out, especially on bad days and thank him for the good days. I try to help him out, whenever i can to keep his stresses low. Like cleaning up the dog poop before he’s due to cut the grass, doing the weed whacker, etc.
But it doesn’t matter if your spouse has bipolar or not, it’s always a good thing to “check in” with them. To see how they are feeling, doing, and etc. We are to be there for them in both good and bad times. All seasons of life. We are to help them, not be against them. Marriage is team work!
I also try to encourage and support him in anything that he suggests for our family, or anything along those lines. Not always easy but remember, in the bible, God sees men as leaders of the home. My husband made a chore chart list for our oldest, Logan because he’s been asking for allowance, and we decided that pictures and having the chart on the fridge would be the easiest for him to see and remind himself daily, of what he needs to do. I don’t have a green thumb outside, but my husband cares about the landscaping outside so he will do what’s needed. Like we got the sod put down last week for the backyard and for the front yard and shortened our garden a bit. He did amazing job. We did have help with my parents.
He is always trying to help me to maintain me as happy so I’m yearning to do the same for him. When we are both happy, everything else is more peachy!! 🙂 It’s always part of being a wife, is to be there for your husband and to be a welcoming home for him. You want him to be able to be open to you with everything in the marriage which is the heart of the home.
