Every marriage has problems but how well you navigate through these problems is the difference between having a happy marriage and a terrible marriage.
No one is saying applying these tips are easy but these tips if properly applied will do your marriage a lot of good.
Make your marriage healthy with the tips below
1. APPLY THE POWER OF TOUCH
How often do you touch your partner? I don’t mean the touch that leads to sex. Touch aids the release of feel-good endorphins. Next time you say good morning to your partner, do it with a kiss. Brush your hands through her hair and hold his hands while you take a walk.
2. BE THE ONE TO ATTRACT THE ONE
This advice doesn’t just work for singles seeking a relationship, it also works in marriage. You can’t expect to have a happy marriage if you are not a happy person. So ensure you do things that make you happy because the happier you feel, the happier your marriage will be.
3. PICK THE RIGHT TIME TO RESOLVE CONFLICTS
You shouldn’t try to resolve a conflict if your partner is hungry or tired. It will definitely not end well. When you want to have a serious conversation with your partner, you should ensure the mood is right.
4. TALK LESS AND LISTEN MORE
Most marriage problems will be solved if couples learn to talk less and listen more. You can’t have a happy marriage if you talk more and listen less. Sometimes all our partner needs is our undivided attention.
5. LITTLE THINGS CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE
Doing little things like saying thank you when your partner helps with a chore can make a lot of difference in your marriage. Give your partner a kiss before leaving for work and when you get back home from work. Little acts of love like this make a huge difference.
6. DON’T EXPECT YOUR PARTNER TO BE PERFECT
No one is perfect. You will create lots of problems in your marriage when you expect your partner to be perfect. Avoid concentrating on your partner’s flaws. You need to understand you can’t change your partner. The only person who can change your partner is your partner. Try addressing your own flaws while seeing the best in your partner and you will be amazed at the result. Your partner will feel appreciated and will be eager to be a better version of himself/herself.
7. AVOID CRITICISM
As couples, we get tempted to be on the offensive during conflicts with our partner and this solves nothing. Being too critical of your partner will only worsen the problem.
