Wives in Islam are considered mates to their "other half." The prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) taught his followers to get married and fulfill and complete the "other half" of their religion or way of life. Marriage is considered a complimenting of two halves to each other in Islam. These teachings seemed strange to the revealing attitude toward women at that time.
A woman wants her husband to be strong in Deen, to be her best friend, someone she can share secrets and jokes with. She wants to feel special, loved and understood. Brothers, if you want to be a good husband please realize that a woman’s needs are different to a man’s. Your wife’s main need is ‘emotional’. Prophet SAWS said “The best of you are those who are best to their wives,” [Bukhari]. When your wife’s emotional needs are fulfilled, you will have a more fulfilling marriage!
