What Makes Marriages Work?

Posted by admin on April 27th, 2006

Marriages can be as much fun as they can be difficult. There will always be a problem here and there and new things to deal with. What matters is how you deal with them. Communication is the key to making it work. You should be open to your wife or husband and they should be open with you. Everyone is different and everyone thinks differently. Everyone has different ideas and ways of thinking. Realize that and except it. Try to make a time during each other’s day to just sit together and talk. No TV, no phone, nothing at all but the two of you talking.

If there ever is a problem you have with your spouse, you should tell them as soon as you feel the time is right. Never let something bother you for a long time because it will keep coming back and resentments will grow.

Spend time with each other. Spending time with your spouse gives you the chance to bond with each other. Do something that you both agree would be fun and entertaining to you both. Go on walks together or watch a sunset in one another’s arms.

If there is a problem between the two of you sit down and talk about it right away. Never argue or fight with each other. If the situation is heated then you should both go to different rooms. Wait until both of you are calmed down to try to talk.

Talk about each other’s ideas and interests. Always respect each other’s opinions.

Have fun together and joke around together. Laughing is a good way to relieve stress in your life.

Commitment is a big key to a happy marriage. When you were at the alter with your husband or wife, you said that you would stick with him or her forever. No matter what! That is a big idea to think about but it is possible. You must learn to stick by their side no matter what you both go through. And to do that you have a lot of patience and love for that person. Nobody said that marriages are an easy thing.

Most of all you should love that person for who they are. Love is one of the most powerful feelings you can have for one another. You will make it together in life if you truly love the person you marry. Remember to have fun with each other and to be honest.

Treat your spouse as you would like to be treated, surprise them a wild flower, breakfast in bed or sit down and watch their favorite TV show with them. They must know that you are interested in what they are doing whether it is your favorite thing or not. Give a little and comprise.
