The Chart
I found this chart on a friend's blog and it has really opened my eyes! Hope it helps you.

Here is a chart that my husband and I got when we attended a couples conference 19 years ago. It is used by permission and is copyrighted so please honor that copyright. It is best to have 2 copies, one to be be filled out first by you, the wife, who answers what you THINK your husband has as priorities for you. Then your husband fills it out with what his priorities really are. You then get together and discuss. It is a great way to open communication on how to better minister to your husband's desires. It is always best to know what they really are first!

Determine your husband's priorities for you.
Rank the following in order of importance:
___A clean house
___Well prepared meals
___Time spent with your children
___Time spent with others
___An attractive wife
Other: ________________________
