The Secret to a Happy Marriage

Let no man put a sunder until death do you part. That is the promise that you made to your spouse if you are planning to make it in the near future. Marriage in itself is an institution and it deserves every little bit of respect. It is a union of two people, an ultimate trophy of affection between two parties and a true definition of what true love can accomplish. As a union of two lovebirds, one of the purposes that a marriage should be able to fulfill is to grant each of the parties with lasting happiness. However, there is nothing like happily ever after as you are bound to experience challenges along the way and some of the challenges will even threaten to break up the marriage.

A happy marriage however can be described as one that offer most of what the parties in it had hoped for. It is a union, and in any union there is always a reason as to why you formed it and for that union to succeed in the long run, you must not lose sight of what brought you together in the first place, love.


If you have a feeling that your marriage is no longer fun and you would like to make it more fun, here are some tips on how you can be able to have a happy marriage.

Focus on doing as opposed to taking.  Marriage just like any other type is full of challenges and for you to navigate through; you have to be willing to compromise. In this case, focus on what your spouse is hoping to get out of the marriage and try your best to make them happen. Sometimes all I takes is just the effort and your spouse will be able to appreciate it. In the long run, the thought of how hard you are trying to make things work between you will put a smile on their faces which will also reflect on yours.

Make a point of solving conflicts as soon as they arise. Conflict resolution is another ways of achieving a happy marriage. It is never advisable to let problems, however small they may seem, to pile up as they may at one point be too much to handle. However, try to find solutions to these problems when both of you have calmed down, it is only then that you will be able to think rationally and offer suggestions on how to best solve the conflicts.

Keep the lines of communication between the two of you open. Communication is a very important aspect of any relationship and for a happy marriage, channels of communication need to be open between the spouses. It is only with communication that one will be able to air his or her opinion as well as their emotions. Also remember that for there to be an effective communication, you must be willing to listen and also be respectful of the other partner’s point of view.
