Tips to Stay Happily Married Forever
Learn how to compromise
Listen, all couples fight. But half the battle of marriage is knowing which fights to pick and which ones you should meet your spouse on halfway. When you love each other, you commit to make the bumpy road of life smoother together. When you do that each day, you put the love and each other first, instead of yourself. That keeps things peaceful.
Get over your jealousy
Trust your spouse to not break your heart, trust them to make the right choices, and trust them to be open with you about any situation that may arise. You married them, so the just have been worthy of all that trust. Also, make sure you are making the right choices and being open with your spouse.
Be physically affectionate with one another.
Making your spouse feel loved sometimes means more than just listening to their wants and needs, physical affection is important too. A hug and a kiss go a long way.
Enjoy one another’s company.
With work, social commitments, and other family members competing for your time, it may be difficult to allocate one-on-one time with your spouse. But making a point to do so and enjoying it can make your relationship stronger in the long run. One of the very most important things is enjoying doing things together.
Never blame your partner
Don’t blame your partner for the things that go wrong. And, don’t turn your arguments into a competition. IF they said something mean and you said something mean back. They are responsible for what they said. But you are responsible for what you said. You control your emotions, reactions, and behavior. Focus on recognizing your part and taking responsibility for it and finally, apologizing for it.
Maintain the friendship in your relationship.
As your relationship progresses, don’t forget to maintain your friendship along with the romantic side of your relationship. Best friends are there for each other, support each other, and like to have fun together.
Have a sense of humor about yourself and your relationship.
Sometimes, things don’t work out the way you’d planned. Instead of picking a fight with your spouse or getting down, try having a good laugh about things. Laugh at yourself and at each other. Laugh with each other. Humor is the way to enjoy a marriage and to raise children.
Be the first to apologize
It doesn’t matter who started it or who is wrong and who is right. In the heat of the argument, you probably said some things you shouldn’t have, things you didn’t mean. It takes two to fight and it takes two to make up. Don’t sit around waiting for the apology you feel you are owed. Instead, be the one to say I’m sorry first. Once you have apologized you are more likely to get an apology in return and more likely to have your partner really hear your side.
Reminisce about why you first fell in love.
Your passion for one another may wax and wane over the years, but remembering why you first fell in love can help pull you back in when you feel like you’re drifting away from each other.
Don’t do anything to break the trust
This isn’t just about cheating. This is about not hiding things, important things from your partner. Don’t lie and say you are working late but really you went to the bar with some coworkers. They fell in love with you, they placed their trust in you. So do your partner the favor of being honest with them about the things that matter.
