8 Powerful Phrases Your Husband Wishes You’d Say To Him Often

“Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate, and to humble.” -Yehuda Berg.

Words are so powerful that we can never be able to truly understand the extent of their impact.

I remember when I heard a quote about sticks and stones… “Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.”

I laughed and said the person behind that quote definitely hadn’t met my father.

For the record, my father is the most sarcastic person I know.

The point is that while some words have a negative impact, others have a positive impact.

Chances are that you may have said things to your husband that you didn’t mean, words that you regret and wish you could take back.

Don’t beat yourself up for this; it is normal for us to make mistakes occasionally.

However, I have noticed how much easier it is for most people to express negative sentiments than positive ones.

You may be wondering what phrases you could say to your husband to make him feel good about himself.

Sometimes, your words can be like a wrapped gift to your husband.

To help you with this, I have curated a list of phrases your husband wishes you’d say to him often.

Before we proceed, you should note that you don’t need to repeat the phrases exactly as they are written in this article.

You only need to express the general sentiment in your own words.

Here we go!

8 Powerful Phrases Your Husband Wishes You’d Say To Him Often

1. “You look handsome”

Powerful Phrases Your Husband Wishes You'd Say To Him Often

There is this popular misconception that men don’t care about compliments.

Many females take the need to compliment their men for granted because they believe this.

I am a man, and I can tell you firsthand that men love compliments just like women.

We want to feel appreciated and loved.

We want to feel like we are attractive.

Of course, a handsome man knows he is handsome because he has a mirror, but this doesn’t diminish how special it is when he receives compliments from the woman he loves.

Men like to know that you find them attractive, and if you don’t compliment them, you need to bear in mind that another lady will do it for you.

2. “I will take care of it”

8 powerful phrases your husband wishes you'd say to him often


Men need help, and according to the biblical account of creation, women were created to satisfy this need.

Contrary to the feeling that many females have, men are not superheroes, and even if they were, superheroes need help, too.

Think about how many superheroes had to come together to take down Thanos in “Avengers: Endgame,” and you will realize this.

That’s just a little detour…

There are times when your husband tells you about a problem he is trying to deal with or a concern that is getting the best of him, and all he needs to hear is that you are ready to support him.

By telling your husband, “I will take care of it,” or whatever close variant you come up with, you are letting him know that he has one less thing to worry about because you will always have his back.

3. “I believe in you”

There are days that you just have to be your husband’s loudest cheerleader because if you don’t cheer him on, who will?

There are times when your husband will be faced with demanding tasks.

These tasks may be from work or just something around the house.

Regardless of what it is, in times like this, you can show how you believe in him by telling him.

Seriously, there is no greater motivation than when someone you love tells you they believe in you.

It makes him feel like David confronting a giant confidently because he knows he has your support.

“I believe in you” is one crucial phrase your husband wishes you’d say to him more often.

4. “I am so proud of you”

There is one important thing that women need to know… “Every man wants to be his wife’s hero.”

He wants to be that knight in shining armor who comes swooping in to save her from distress.

He doesn’t just want to do all of these things; he also wants you to notice all he does and appreciate him duly.

He wants you to see his sacrifices for the family and celebrate him for it, too.

Letting him know you are proud of him when he does something great or even when he doesn’t do anything is a way of expressing this gratitude.

It is not stroking his ego, so don’t think of it that way.

Think of it as a way of expressing that his efforts in the family are appreciated and that they don’t go unnoticed.

I know you may have told him, “Thank you,” but telling him you are proud of him is more significant for most men.

“I am proud of you” is another major phrase husbands wish they could say often.

It feels like Santa came early for your husband whenever you say it.

5. “You are amazing”

Powerful Phrases Your Husband Wishes You'd Say To Him Often


Sometimes, your husband does something so well that you know “thank you” isn’t enough.

It’s not enough for you to thank your man for doing something; sometimes, you need to tell him that he has done a great job, and that’s a function of how amazing he is.

When you tell your husband that he is amazing, it infers that because he is amazing, he does things excellently.

He wants to hear this whenever he does something great in the gym, handles the kids with so much wisdom, or stands up for you and defends you.

He also wants to hear this after a particularly steamy session of lovemaking.

It hits differently when you say, “You are amazing,” immediately after sex.

It makes a man feel like he is flying over the moon and motivates him to greater heights, not just in the bedroom but in other aspects of family life as well.

6. “I would still choose you over and over again”

Many people usually say that only insecure people like hearing words like this often.

However, I sincerely disagree.

Most husbands know they are not perfect and may have a few flaws.

They know that, in some ways, they may not have met their wives’ expectations.

This should not be a strange idea to anyone.

We all know that we are not perfect.

Letting your husband know that despite his flaws and the periods when he didn’t meet your expectations, you’d still choose him over and over again will help reassure him of your love for him.

He doesn’t need to be insecure to wish you’d say this to him more often.

It is what every husband wants to hear.

Newsflash: husbands, this doesn’t mean you should stop attempting to improve on yourself!

7. “We will get through this”

8 powerful phrases your husband wishes you'd say to him often

More than the romantic, butterflies in the belly kinds of words, husbands appreciate and desire words that signify that you remain by their side through the stormy times.

Yeah, I know you already said something similar in your marriage vows, but that was several years ago.

Husbands still want to hear you say this to them regularly.

When men face terrible circumstances, telling them, “We will get through this,” is not just a profession of support; you are making them realize that they are not alone.

As “a friend in need is a friend indeed,” even more so, “a spouse in need is a spouse indeed.”

8. “I love you”

8 powerful phrases your husband wishes you'd say to him often


Most married couples get so comfortable with each other that they no longer tell each other, “I love you.”

They believe their partner should know how they feel about them.

The words “I love you” form a powerful phrase that can successfully communicate all that has been listed above in this article.

In it, the desire to support and cheer your husband to greater heights is expressed.

It also expresses/explains the reason why you decided to choose your husband.

Beyond this, it expresses a desire to stand with him through every storm and an admiration for all he does.

This doesn’t mean that you should decide to use only this phrase instead of the others.

While it may express the same sentiments as the others, saying the exact words when the situation requires it is what your husband desires.

I like to think of positive words as colorful building blocks.

Think of how colorful and sturdy your man will become as you season your communication with him and build him up with your words more.

I daresay that these words are very powerful because of the powerful reactions they cause in your man.

Words are powerful, and everyone has to learn to wield it wisely.
