Steps to Happily Ever After
Do you know what all happy and healthy
marriages have in common? In every one of them you will find two people committed
to making each other happy. You will find a man who cherishes his wife and
puts her needs above his own, and you will find a wife who respects and trusts
her man. We live in very selfish times. Pop-psychology messages are everywhere
in the media encouraging us to love ourselves, do right by ourselves, and
generally please ourselves first. If you really want a happy marriage,
dont buy into that type of self-centered thinking. Instead, try these
10 time-tested techniques and experience the happiness, peace, and tranquility
of a healthy marriage.
you ever thought about writing your partner a love letter only to sit down
with pen in hand wondering what you should say?
1. Make time for each other. Its
so easy in our hyper-busy modern lifestyles to forget to set aside a little
time to enjoy each others company. Start a weekly tradition of setting
a date for the two of you to be together doing something you both enjoy.
Keep it simple. Take a nice walk together. Sip coffee together in a cozy
coffeehouse. Talk to each other, reminisce, and get to know each other
2. Take time off from each other. Give
each other space and time to work on hobbies and personal interests. When
you have an interesting project to work on, you will feel more fulfilled
and you will be a more interesting person.
3. Make little romantic gestures. Remember
to compliment your spouse. Leave a little love note for them to find once
in awhile. Celebrate the day you first met. Send flowers for no particular
reason. You should continuously make little deposits in your spouses
emotional bank account. The return on your investment will be
4. Fight fair. Dont argue in front
of other people. Dont insult each other or each others families.
Never threaten divorce, and never go to bed angry. Let the little things
go, and dont make a big deal out of every disagreement. Before arguing,
think; is this really going to matter in the long run?
5. Take interest in what interests your
spouse. Watch their favorite shows with them. Read their favorite book, so
you can talk about it with them. Encourage them to develop their
women do not know when a man is not being true to them. They are shocked
when they find out that their mate, who professes to love them dearly, has
been having an affair.
6. Listen to your spouse. Husbands, remember
that women need to express their feelings. Be a good sport and just listen.
Dont interrupt, or get distracted. Empathize with her. Let her know
that you can relate to what shes feeling. Ladies, please remember that
the kind of talk you might like to have with your husband does not come naturally
to most men. Just be patient. Its not a good idea to unload
on him right when he comes home from work.
7. Accept your spouse for who they are.
Practice total acceptance. Dont hold your spouse to your expectations;
you will only succeed at building resentment.
8. Express your commitment. In little
ways, you can, and should, renew your vows to each other over and over. Your
spouse will feel comfortable and secure knowing that you are truly committed
to the marriage. True closeness will only happen when all doubt and insecurity
is replaced by confidence in the relationship. Let your spouse know that
you really are in it till death do us part.
9. Trust in each other. Dont be
suspicious. Dont snoop through each others belongings. To help
ensure the trust, be honest with your spouse in all things. Never keep secrets
from each other, not even little ones.
10. Make it your aim to be your
spouses best friend. Appreciate your spouse for who they are. Loosen
up and have fun with each other. If you are practicing the steps above, you
are on your way to being your spouses best friend the ultimate
relationship in marriage.
