9 Tips for a Happy Marriage
Marriage is a moment of great emotions and represents, in many ways, the culmination of a journey and, at the same time, the beginning of a completely new and equally beautiful journey. Making sure that it is also a happy and lasting marriage should be the daily commitment of every couple.
However, over time, life that is increasingly chaotic can lead us to take the person next to us for granted, not by our will but simply because we are busy with numerous daily commitments that at that moment, we often have priority over our actions and our titime.
1.Always be nice
It is the simple things that can make a difference. Even if busy with daily commitments and problems, never forget to say “thank you”, “please” or those simple gestures that help coexistence. Also, leave your belongings in order, inform your partner if you will delay at work, help with housework etc. It doesn’t take much but it makes a huge difference!
2. Take care of yourself
Over time it is natural to “let yourself go a little bit”, but the advice is to always try to stay within certain limits while continuing to take care of yourself. Do not let the flame go out, continue to to look good and feed your complicity. Even if for once you will not wear the comfortable pajamas, wear something great and look good for yourself and your partner.
3. Respect the living spaces
Life together means walking in the same direction. Do not impose your way of life or your constant presence at all costs, but rather find a point of agreement. Try to respect its living spaces and its freedom and autonomy without “suffocating”. Trust and respect is the basis of everything.
4. Be yourself
The richness and beauty of the couple lies precisely in the diversity of the people who make it up. Don’t try at all costs to think the same way, just as you don’t necessarily always have to agree. Respect each other’s needs, wishes and expectations and don’t be afraid to compromise too. You will both benefit.
5. Take time for yourself
Everyday is a rush, from work with its stress and problems, from children, to daily tasks. Don’t be afraid to take some time for yourself, on the contrary, put it on the calendar if you struggle to find it. Taking some time for the two of you is essential to unplug, distract yourself from worries and finally pay attention to your partner’s attention and well-being.
6. Decide together
Do not take anything for granted and, especially in important matters, talk about the various possibilities, dialogue and try to make the decision a common fruit in order to be, if possible, both satisfied. The opinion of each of you is important.
7. Be open
Communication as a couple is the basis of harmony in a relationship. Expressing opinions and wishes will avoid misunderstandings. Knowing how to listen is another way to take care of yourself and is a great starting point for having a happy and lasting marriage.
8. Don’t forget the other
Small attentions are actually big gestures. If you can, take a little surprise, a romantic dinner or a breakfast in bed, a bouquet of flowers or that dish she liked so much. Don’t be afraid and make time for your partner. There are countless simple and free gestures that will show that the person next to you is important!
9. Arguing moderately
Loving each other does not mean that you have to agree on everything or that you won’t argue some. You will but do not blow it out of proportion or keep things within you. Talk about things especially things that bother you. Never raise your hands on your partner and always avoid verbal violence. Moreover, it is a good idea to avoid arguing in public or in front of your children.
