April 16 is an occasion to tell a partner about your love, and express gratitude for their help and support; this touching, gentle, moderately restrained holiday in a man’s style is called Husband Appreciation Day and wives should know it.
This holiday is celebrated on the third Saturday of April. Heads of the family are in the spotlight. They give support and reliable protection against adversity. They make important decisions, distribute financial resources and responsibilities. Wives listen, following husband’s decisions: the patriarchal order of the traditional family professing fundamental values does not lose relevance. The family is the foundation of society. Husbands are a significant part of the family, allowing development and success. Gender roles are changing, but the basis remains unchanged. It is wonderful when the balance is maintained, and the husband acts in agreement on household management issues, not refusing activities. The presence of balance is a guarantee of family harmony, and half of the merit belongs to the husband.
The word husband has roots in old Scandinavian languages, meaning owner of the house.
- A husband’s role as defender has been the key one throughout every era. In ancient times, it was believed the husband protects the wife, children, servants, pets, and property, and is responsible for everything.
- Polygamy (where a husband is allowed to marry several times without terminating the previous marriage, surrounding himself with numerous wives) is allowed in 400 societies.
- The practice of allowing a wife to marry numerous times is observed in 50 societies.
Celebrate this holiday thinking about what your man likes. Pay attention to him (or leave him alone), cook a delicious dish, thank him and tell him you love him: he is unique, caring, and responsible.
