All relationships require nurture and care, and ensuring a happy marriage is no exception.
Here are 10 top tips to ensure a happy marriage;
Take time to have some fun together
With the busy lives we lead, it’s easy to find your marriage at the bottom of the priority list. Go for a walk together and hold hands , cook together, exercise together or just tell each other stories from your day. Laugh together as often as possible.
Learn how to agree to disagree.
It is inevitable that you and your partner will not agree on everything. Loving and respecting difference
will strengthen your relationship
Never lose the fine art of dating.
Setting aside a romantic evening on a regular basis can rekindle the magic of a long-term relationship. It doesn’t have to be fancy, just special time for the two of you to remember how and why you first fell in love.
Love your marriage by first taking care of yourself.
Marriage is not about focusing all your attention upon your partner. Caring for yourself helps ensure you remain able to make your contribution to the relationship.
Respect each other
One of the most important factors in a good marriage is respect. Treat each other decently and fairly and avoid unkind words.
Make couple time
A healthy marriage is one that has a mix of individual, family, and couple time.
Trust your partner
A strong marriage is a partnership in trust. Trust your partner in everything, including purchases and financial decisions, and to bring up things with you that need a joint decision.
When times are tough, our tendency is to protect ourselves, to retreat, to “lean out.”. Sharing your vulnerability in difficult moments strengthens intimacy and trust.
Support each other
A strong marriage is one in which both people understand that the other person needs to have outside interests and activities which help them to feel happy and fulfilled.
Remember that life is long
Things that seem important today usually fade in importance as time goes by. Before you react to something in a negative way, remember “all things pass”.
