Husbands will show their love in many ways. Some may be obvious and some subtle. Sometimes gifts are given and other times an appreciative look may be noticed. All these are signs of love from a husband.

8. He does the little things

These can sometimes mean the most. Maybe the towel you use is on the floor, he’ll put it where it belongs for you.

If you’ve dropped something, he’s there to pick it up. Maybe he simply opens the door for you or makes sure you’re dry in the rain.

These little things a husband should do for a wife and they all mean something. They mean he’s a good man and he cares about you.

He realizes you’re a partnership and you work together. He works on the details to make everything right for both of you.

6 obvious signs he loves you

When he does these things, it’s a definite sign of love. There’s no thinking about his true intentions, he’s being up front.

These are very obvious and leave you in no doubt your husband is showing his love. People in romantic relationships always do this.

1. He says he loves you

These are the words that separate a normal relationship from one that’s special. A husband and wife should hear this from each other all the time.

Sometimes he has to express what he feels and these words come out. They’re nice to hear in any situation.

If he says this without any prompt from you, that really means something. We can always say it in response but out of the blue is different.

Sometimes these words are easy to say and become automatic but we all know when it’s really meant and from a husband it really counts.

2. He buys you gifts

He may buy you gifts for your birthday, but coming home from work with a bunch of flowers for no reason is a sure sign of love.

If perhaps it’s a gift you weren’t expecting. That he’s clearly taken time to choose or maybe it’s one that means a lot, it shows how well he knows you.

A loving husband enjoys seeing their wife’s face light up when opening a gift and is an obvious sign he cares.

3. You get intimate with each other

If you’re getting physical in and out of the bedroom and the lust is there. Then love follows it too.

If he cares about your enjoyment and satisfaction when you’re getting intimate. Then you have someone you should keep.

Cuddling while watching a movie at home. Close physical contact and touching is something obvious a husband in love does.

If he says romantic things for your ears only while in a group of people. It’s him expressing his love and he wants you to know it.

4. He talks about the future

A sure sign he loves you is he talks about the future and you’re in it. If he makes plans and they involve you then things are good for him.

This is especially true if they’re big plans. Does he plan on moving soon or having children? Only a happy husband would talk about these things.

Security is important to men as well and he’ll want to know how you feel about the future. He’ll want to know you feel the same way.

5. You’re his priority

His wife will be the number one priority in a loving husband’s life. Nothing is more important than her health and happiness.

You’ll feel it because if you need anything from him at all, he’ll be there. He’ll move Heaven and Earth to make sure you have what you need.

If you want him to do something, he’ll do it. If it’s important to you, then it will be important to him.

6. He compliments you

A husband has no problem in saying when his wife looks good or when she’s done or said something he likes.

He wants you to know that he still loves you and loves the way you are and the things you do.

We all need validation occasionally. A husband who does this for his wife does it because he knows how it makes her feel.

Final thoughts

If your husband does some of the things above, then you have a good man who clearly thinks the world of you. Perhaps you should realize it a bit more often.

As you can see, there are many ways a husband shows his love. But if you’re not noticing it or he’s no good at showing it, then you need to ask him.

It’s no good if you and your husband stick to the same routine every day. If you don’t show any appreciation for each other every so often.

Sometimes it’s a two way street and telling him you love him may make him express his love for you a bit more.

All we need to do is make an effort and talk a bit more about how we feel. Then you’ll both feel the benefit.
