Don’t Take Your Relationship For Granted And Find Out How To Improve Marriage And Make It Last
Marriage A Union Of Two Individuals
Marriage is an ever evolving relationship. You begin by finding a soulmate and starting on the long journrney of life, hand in hand. Apart from being a union of two individuals it’s also the union of two different personalities, attitudes, mindsets and perceptions. The home and the heart expand to add a whole new dimension to existence.
In the whirlwind and mechanical world of today, marriage sometimes tends to lose focus and go astray. Differences arise between the husband and wife and all the marriage vows lie somewhere with the forgotten albums and pictures. A couple needs to accept the fact that the journey they set on would face speedbumps, pace would slacken, support and motivation would be required, climates would change…but with courage, love, positivity and selflessness destination will always be within reach. Highlighted here are ways to improve marriage and quality of life.
COMMUNICATION : Remember the times when you just tied the knot? Hours of talking, sometimes sensible, other times just like that, but both times heart to heart! Don’t let this dialogue fade for it enables couples to always stay close. After a couple of years, marriage begins to be taken for granted and communication between couples takes a backseat. Stop that. Talk to each other about your day, vacation ideas, kids’ school and soccer practice, finances ans also feel free to air your hopes, feelings, needs and dreams. Silence between couples breeds negativity. Take brainstorming sessions with each other and discover the wonders of companionship. Tell each other where you are at different points of time during the day. A talking couple is a happy couple. Let the dialogue flow.
RESPECT EACH OTHERS SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES AND BE WILLING TO GIVE SPACE : A couple is two different people, interests and priorities may vary. This fact should be understood and reacted to accordingly. If she wants to paint, he should let her be and if he wants to watch a game she should be cool and get him popcorn. There’s a difference between being there for each other and actually being with eah other physically. A couple who has learnt to give space when required ensures a long lasting marriage.
LOVE UNCONDITIONALLY : They say that love conquers all and with reason. Listening to each other, giving complements, acknowledging achievements and contributions and taking arguments as part of every normal marriage are all ways to show love for each other. Love needs expression, don’t keep it bottled up. Be attentive to ones physical needs and desires too, for sex not only brings you close but establishes a mature and lasting bond. This aspect improves marriage and keeps it going strong.
BE TRUSTING AND TRUSTWORTHY : Marriage is founded on trust. If one falters he or she should know that the other would rush with help. Such committment makes marriage the most beautiful relationship ever and every day together is a treat.
