Getting married is easy but, remaining married can prove to be a challenge in many cases. In general, it has been observed that most marriages reach its happiest summit during honeymoon. Following, both man and wife have to work towards keeping the marriage fresh. The top secret of that is to bring out the best in the marriage partner.
Here are five methods of making your marriage work:
- Learn to appreciate each other:
After years of marriage, both partners take each other for granted. Initially, they just could not wait to give each other a long passionate kiss. Later, the same couple has no time for each other. The kiss turns into a simple peck on the cheeks. As result, the partner does not bother looking up or at the partner. This action can be misunderstood as “do not care anymore”. Many men feel emotionally depressed and end up dating women who show they care. These men do not run away for want of sex.
- Thank each other for the smallest things:
In order to keep the marriage fresh and happy, the partners should refrain from acting tit-for-tat. Relationship cannot be measured using a scale. There is give and take for both partners. The secret of happy marriage is self-less love. This means one of the partners might have to sacrifice own indulges to make the marriage work.
- Be honest to each other:
Honesty is the best policy even though it can be challenging at times. You have to be transparent even when you spend too much money via credit cards. You have to confide in your partner sooner before he stops trusting you. Another dishonesty that is common is when one partner has an extra marital affair. Since this situation can kill happy marriage, it is condemned in all religious books. Thus, the couple should discuss their emotions with each other to understand how and why it occurred. It might be due to some silly communication gap or some complex situation. Both can be resolved in time to save the happy marriage. This process can be used by couples of all ages ensuring couples can lead happy and intimate live.
- Look good:
With advent of age, looks differ – both men and women tend to gain weight especially visceral fats. The men tend to lose their hair and start balding. There are situations that cannot be helped and no one in their 60s can dream of looking like when they were in their 16s. Yet, everyone can take care of themselves physically after workouts. Taking care of physical appearance exercising and grooming well are attractive to opposite partners. It helps when husband or wife comments on attractive youthful looks of the other.
- Enjoy the silence:
When both partners cannot resolve a situation, it is advisable to simply remain silent and walk away. Remember, you should be careful of the words you choose while speaking to your beloved partner. Under no circumstance should you hurt the partner. As a result, the marriage might become sour and it would be the end of the relationship.
