Christmas showed me how much my marriage needed RPW

December 25, 2019

My husband and I exchanged our Christmas gifts this morning. It’s been a strange few months for me trying to take on a more traditional role in our marriage since we both grew up in very feminist households and I wasn’t sure how my husband would respond to changes.

Then this morning he absolutely spoiled me, as usual! In my stocking were aprons (I started wearing them recently and didn’t realize that he LOVES them), baking supplies, a Sephora gift card (so I can “doll myself up” the way he likes) and so many feminine things! He told me how much he loved buying my gifts this year and how our life together is more than he imagined.

I can truly see how much he values my gentleness, how well I take care of our home and that I present myself femininely! It’s so worth it ladies, keep it up even when the world is fighting against you! Our men need women :)

You are absolutely right! Traditional values are wonderful and work very well for a marriage. After Christmas with the family this morning my husband just said, "I'm tired, I could fall asleep right now." In the past I would have discouraged him from this for selfish reasons, but after motivation from this sub I said to him, "go take a nap babe, you deserve it, I'll take care of the baby." He was like, "really?" I want to continue this behavior to encourage him to be at ease, to help him be the best version of himself that he can be.

Aww that’s so sweet! I’ve been learning to do this as well! I always think that if I wanted to have a rest, he would support me and never make me feel guilty about it so I like to do the same :)

Yes 100%

I freaking love aprons! They make cooking seem like less of a chore and more of a fun thing. Plus it makes any woman look more cute regardless of what they're wearing underneath. I feel like most men like seeing their woman in an apron, but dont even know it since it's considered such an "outdated" thing. Personally I enjoy not getting stains and flour on my clothing anyway

Completely agree! I’ve ruined so many nice clothes with oil or other stains. So practical but also adorable :)

Im just curious, has that improved your own life enough to make it worth it?

It has made my marriage so much stronger. Before I would try to be everything I thought I should be but really I was just so worn out and stretched that I wasn’t being anything to anyone. Now we have our roles (not always traditional gender defined as I am a professional and work full time) but we are both focused on caring for each other. It’s not just me changing myself, it’s about us making a team effort to build a strong and happy family!

How sweet and thoughtful! I am amazed how much fun men seem to have picking out gifts they’d like to see their significant other use. It’s so pleasantly surprising ☺️

I bought two old fashioned aprons on Etsy and my husband absolutely loves them on me.
