  • PLEASE do a video with specific examples of how to VERBALLY comfort and support your wifemore than “I love you”, and “you’re beautiful”. My husband is a man of VERY few words and I’m dying to hear…”I know I will never fully understand 100% what you’re going through, but I know it isn’t easy for you and you have my support 100%.” “You are gonna be a fabulous mom!” “I love your pregnant belly!” “ I’m sorry you feel so lousy today, is there anything you need?” Etc. My husband does do different things for me to show his love, and actions speak louder than words, but that doesn’t mean we don’t need reassurance through words. Actually, for me, constant reassurance is perfectly fine and WELCOMED!
