The relationship between a husband and wife is a very sensitive affair. It has to be based on mutual trust, love and care as well understanding. Much effort goes into maintaining the relationship.

Any kind of neglect on each other’s part could lead to a termination of the relationship or end up as relationship with no sparks.
A husband needs the support of his wife to carry on with his professional life and also to meet his emotional and physical needs.

What all he needs to do to impress upon her?
