The Leo husband is either easy or difficult to please

It has already been stated that the Leo husband has his standards. He can make his selective personality known. He likes to keep things straight to the point. He may be easy to please in terms of compliments and physical acts of love but he can be quite critical of things if they are not their best.

He is difficult to please because he is fixed. He is not the type to consider compromises. Sometimes he may only focus on his own needs and doesn’t see how the other person is feeling. He can feel like the only thing that matters is himself. The Leo husband can also be controlling about his expectations of you. As his wife, you may either find him easy to live with or the latter.

The Leo husband may extend himself to others outside of his family

He is proud and likes to show off when it comes to his public image. The Leo husband likes to see his wife and his friends succeed in life. He wants to be able to brag about the people he loves, the only time he will feel jealous of their success is if he feels threatened.

The Leo husband won’t think twice to help someone he cares about. Though he is tough and fearless, he wears his heart on his sleeve. It won’t always be about money, sometimes it’s just about the time he gives and the effort he puts out.

He will always be relied on and he tells himself he can manage. This might be an issue if it will affect family finances but the Leo husband usually knows how to prioritize and make things work. Though another thing to add is that in his career, he will be very hardworking and his dedication will surely attract promotions and opportunities.

If there isn’t enough emphasis already, the Leo husband needs admiration and respect the most. He is like a vampire that gets weak when he fails to drink blood except the blood is compliments and praised. The Leo husband has a deep need for validation and whatever will affirm his ego keeps him self-assured.

The Leo husband always asks for more. If kids suddenly appear, he can even get jealous of his own children because that means you will pay more attention to them at some point. He would want his wife to stand by him even if he doesn’t realize how wrong he could be.

You may need to find techniques or subtle ways on how you can communicate feedback to him. Though he appreciates honesty, it’s different when it’s about criticism. If you want to be able to make your Leo husband do anything, you have to make him believe he wanted it.

The Leo husband is an Alpha male

For those looking for a relationship that leans on equality, this is not going to be with a Leo husband. He wants to be the best. He wants to be number one. He wants to be the king of the castle, adored by his patrons and served by those he relies on.

He would give you the world if he could. The Leo husband is happiest when he is in command, which means he could order the people at home a lot.

As his wife, it may be expected that you will do more of the domestic chores at home. Either that or he hires one so he can keep his wife spoiled.

The same merit happens when it is about confrontation. Sometimes he doesn’t think first before charging into conflict. He has difficulty admitting he is wrong.
