The One Thing Your Husband Is Attracted to That You Shouldn't Lose as You Age

Aug 18, 2007
Vanity makes growing old tough. It gets tougher to keep that extra weight off. The skin just doesn't seem as tight. And the hair just doesn't seem as full as it once was. But everyone wants to look good, especially for their spouse.

Well, there's something every woman should hold onto as they age. It's a feature that can fade with stress and anxiety. But if you can keep it, your husband will definitely notice.

In fact, if you manage to keep it, it will endear you to your husband almost as much as anything else you can do. So what is this that's so vital for your marriage? Is it your shapely figure? Or your beautiful hair? Or your soft supple skin? No, it's none of these.

It's your smile. I know it sounds simple -- it really is -- but there's a lot of depth to showing those pearly whites (even if you had to have them whitened). Proverbs 15:13 says, "A glad heart makes a cheerful face, but by sorrow of heart the spirit is crushed."

When a woman smiles, she can change the whole complexion of her family. You know the old saying, "When Momma ain't happy, ain't no one happy." It's true. The woman is the emotional seat of the home. Her joyful spirit is contagious. And it's attractive to her husband. Very attractive!

But don't put on a fake smile. Proverbs 27:19 tells us, "As in water face reflects face, so the heart of man reflects the man." The same is true of the woman. A fake smile will last only so long. A smile that reflects a heart set on Jesus will shine no matter what your teeth look like.

How can you make your smile real and everlasting? Ecclesiastes 8:1 gives the answer: "Who is like the wise? And who knows the interpretation of a thing? A man's wisdom makes his face shine, and the hardness of his face is changed."

If you really want to romance your man; if you really want him to notice you and only you well into your old age, there's one thing you should focus on more than anything else -- gaining wisdom.

Not only will it make you someone your husband really enjoys talking too, it will also build his respect for you. And it'll soften your heart and make your face shine like the sun. He won't be able to refuse you.
