What a good question! Especially in the current world that is characterised by fast technological advancement and quick fixes. Perhaps we should put it this way – what comes to your mind when you think of nurturing? Does it remind you of the loving and caring mother taking care of her loved ones? Now replace mother with husband. Nurturing is when one puts other people’s needs ahead of theirs. It is a process in which a caring individual helps another person develop and grow through a series of time-limited, confidential, one-on-one conversations and other learning activities.
“I have been a husband for 15 years, and to be nurturing is not natural, to be honest with you, I do not see any benefits of starting to do it now’’ echoed John as we were chatting about a nurturing husband in a restaurant. Perhaps you share the same sentiments as John. Research has shown that there are many benefits that Husbands gain from a nurturing relationship. As a husband, you will have the opportunity to share your wisdom and experiences, evolve your thinking, develop your relationship with your wife, and deepen your skills to nurture her.
A relationship cannot survive on its own. It needs the care and nurturing of two adults, giving to each other in a way that creates a mutually beneficial connection. Marriage relationships are the most important aspects of many people’s lives. Nurturing your wife to a healthy, fruitful and fulfilling loving relationship not only provides the husband with great joy and happiness, but also in return it also supports his career, inspires him towards the achievement of his most profound and most cherished goals, and provide a broader sense of both physical and spiritual well-being.
