How to show respect to your husband
Respect is highly important to a man, and in fact, men perceives love as being respected. Men needs respect as much as women need love. Men tend to move towards where they feel honoured and respected. No wonder scripture commands that the wife respects her husband. 

However, each man among you [without exception] is to love his wife as his very own self [with behavior worthy of respect and esteem, always seeking the best for her with an attitude of lovingkindness], and the wife [must see to it] that she respects and delights in her husband [that she notices him and prefers him and treats him with loving concern, treasuring him, honoring him, and holding him dear].

How do you show respect to your husband?

Start to treat your husband like a VIP (very important person). 

Rather than complain about what he does, compliment him. Compliment him every single day, whether or not he compliments you. Don't give up, he's noticing, and I can tell you, tides will change.

Compliment his physical appearance, his dressing, his help around the house (even if he does not seem to do as much as you want, compliment the little effort he puts), compliment his relationship with the children, compliment his ability to provide for you and the kids, compliment his walk with God, his ability to fix things around the house, for instance, repairing spoilt equipment. Be conscious  and intentional in complimenting your husband. Let it flow. You are doing yourself good by doing that. It will eventually backfire on you, in a good way, of course...lol. Start to look for opportunities to honour and compliment him with your words.

Respect him by your actions. You can communicate disrespect by the way you act. Avoid rolling eyes, slamming doors, hissing and all that. When you communicate with him, be mindful of your tone of voice and your expressions especially in conflicting or arguing discussions. In discussing with your husband, think about what you say, when you say it and how you say it.

Encourage him in his career. Support him professionally, support his goals. Men are work oriented. When he has issues in terms of his work, be a strong pillar of support to him by encouraging him with your words. Don't criticize him.

Highly regard his opinions and decisions. Accept his words as wisdom. Don't brush aside his ideas, value them and thank him for them. Seek him for his counsel on matters. Involve him in your decision making. At times of different ideas and opinions, communicate your idea with him in honour. When he makes a wrong decision, avoid saying I told you so, rather support him through it and trust God to make good out of the situation.

A man will become his full and healthy self in an atmosphere of honour and respect.

Respect your husband from the heart and genuinely and consistently. Believe the best of your husband. When you believe the best of him, you will view his actions in a positive way.

Respect him in front of the children. Let the children know that he's the most important person in that house (of course the head is the most important part of our body. Once it's gone, that person no longer exists...lol). Encourage your children to thank him for being a good father. Always prepare your kids to welcome dad from work. Let them in fact see how highly you place your husband. Don't tolerate any form of ill attitude from them towards their dad.

Respect him before friends and families. Never criticize him or talk down on him before other people. Don't shout on him. Let other people see how you value his opinions and ideas. Appreciate him in front of others. Don't give any one the opportunity to speak anyhow of your husband. Support and defend him in front of others. Never embarrass him.

Never nag, never take your husband for granted. Listen to him. 
Respect and appreciate his parents.

Respect him physically by touching, hugging and kissing him as a way of affirmation.

Respect his desire for physical intimacy, by responding to his sexual needs and not withholding your body from him.

Respect your husband even when you think he does not deserve it. He does not have to earn it and you don't have to feel it. Respect is an unearned gift to your husband.
