It was narrated by Abu Huraira that the Prophet said :
اِسْتَوْصُوْا بِالنِّسَاءِ خَيْرًا، فَإِنَّ الْمَرْأَةَ خُلِقَتْ مِنْ ضِلْعٍ ، وَإِنَّ أَعْوَجَ مَا فِى الضِّلْعِ أَعْلاَهُ، فَإِنْ ذَهَبْتَ تُقِيْمُهُ كَسَرْتَهُ، وَإِنْ تَرَكْتَهُ لَمْ يَزَلْ أَعْوَجَ فَاسْتَوْصُوْا بِالنِّسَاءِ
“And I advise you to take care of the women, for they are created from a rib and the most crooked portion of the rib is its upper part; if you try to straighten it, it will break, and if you leave it, it will remain crooked, so I urge you to take care of the women.” 
Based on the hadith above, a husband should be patient and gentle while advising and guiding his wife as if he is harsh then she will not change her bad behaviour.
