Some Ideas On How To Have A Happy Marriage

Aug 17, 2007
Having a happy marriage isn't automatic and it doesn't necessarily come easily just because you love each other. While being in love is very important in a marriage sometimes it just isn't enough and you have to work at your marriage just like any other relationship. Open communication and careful consideration of each others feelings are two of the emotional aspects that are keys to a happy marriage. Even more ordinary details such a household responsibilities and financial understanding can factor into the state of the marriage. It is crucial to understand that a marriage is a multi-faceted relationship that needs to be nurtured in all of its capacities in order to be successful and lasting as it was meant to be.

Both parties being willing to make sacrifices is one secret to a happier marriage. Both partners in the marriage must be prepared to put their partner's happiness ahead of their own from time to time for the marriage to truly work. If either partner is completely self centered and unwilling to make sacrifices it will create resentment in the marriage. At times the sacrifices may be big but most often it's the smaller things that matter most. Even preparing a dish that you don't like but that you know your spouse likes lets your partner know that you care and are willing to put their happiness first at times. The bottom line is that is both partners are looking out for the other then things will work perfectly.

While making sacrifices is important in a marriage,it is also important to sometimes do things that are just for you, and that isn't being selfish. It's great to have a lot of common interests but it's also essential to have some things that you enjoy doing on your own. Having some separate activities gives you a little time away from your partner once in awhile and gives you a chance realize how much you miss them when you are apart. It also gives you an opportunity to explore things on your own and prevents boredom in the relationship. This is another thing that is crucial to the survival of a marriage; you have to have your own life as well.

Another secret to a having a better marriage is to maintain an intimate and affectionate relationship. Sharing physical closeness will keep your marriage happy. Even small gestures such as hugs or holding hands give you the opportunity to reconnect with your spouse on a daily basis. On a more intimate note, if you are a woman go buy a sexy lingerie item to show your man that you want him. If you are a man, buy a nice lingerie item for your wife to show her that she is desirable to you.
