The power behind every great husband is a smart wife
What exactly is a smart wife and what does she do to make her husband successful?

Smart wife
The true meaning behind the title is really quite simple, a smart wife understands how to make her husband happy. In the idea alone this will contribute to making him a more successful man. The old saying is not quite the same because you can have a good woman behind a man so to speak, but a smart wife is really going to make him successful.

What exactly is a smart wife and what does she do to make her husband successful?

Understanding how a man thinks.
A smart wife is a woman who understands men and how they think, which is quite different from the way a woman thinks. Husbands need their wives in different ways than a woman may need her husband. Men are typically problem solvers and want to fix what is presented to them.

This is much different than a woman. Women can listen to what a person has to say sympathize with them, give suggestions or just be there for support. When a man is presented with the same question he is not going to just sit and listen he is going to want to fix it or take action. Many times woman, who do not understand men well get upset at their husbands for not listening to them like a girlfriend would. A smart wife will know that when she presents a problem to her husband he a good person to trouble shoot those problems with her, but a girlfriend would be a better choice to just hear and sympathize with her.

An affectionate wife
A smart wife will be affectionate with her husband. Many times women forget that a husband still wants to be desired by their wife. A smart wife will show her husband that she still desires him and loves him, by surprising him with her affection. She can initiate love making and ask him to come to bed. There is nothing sexier to a husband, than when his wife shows him that she still desires him and wants him.
