10 Marriage Tips for Happy Married Life
1. Make time for your spouse every day.
You and your spouse can increase the probabilities of marital success by devoting time each day with each other.
2. Compliment your spouse regularly and often.
Both in private and in front of others.
3. Love your spouse in the way he or she wants to be loved.
For example do not buy a gift for your spouse that you would like to receive, get him or her what they would like.
4. Take care of how you look.
Look your best for your spouse. This also means taking care of your health, including eating properly and exercising regularly.
5. Remain faithful without any question or doubt in your spouse’s mind.
Accept the fact that you are no longer single and how much you value your spouse and your vows.
6. Do things together.
Whether that’s ballroom dancing, taking walks, bowling, playing cards, participate in at least one activity that you both enjoy every week. If you have kids, make sure at least half of these activities are for you and your spouse only.
7. Utilize your time apart.
You take an art class while your spouse goes to the gym; you play cards and your partner visits their parents. You don’t have to love everything your partner loves, but you do have to allow him or her the freedom to pursue the hobbies they like.
8. Be best friends with your spouse.
The key to marital happiness and success is friendship. Demonstrating affection and respect for each other on a regular daily basis, and sincerely enjoying each other’s company.
9. The terms of your relationship.
Communicate, reevaluate, or at least to clarify your values from time to time to be on the same page. Most disputes that break up marriages are over sex and money.
10. Say to your spouse “I love you” every day.
This is especially important when you’re not feeling the sensation of love; at these times, you have to actively generate it. Saying those three little words, and performing loving gestures, will warm both your and your spouse’s hearts.
