Believing that marriage is only about the happiest moments is truly unfair. When you are recently married, you are so ardently in love with your partner that you start to assume that this euphoric love will remain forever. You envisage that there will be no fights, arguments, misunderstandings in your married life but as soon as few months passed after you tie nuptial knots, you feel disappointed and taken aback when the idealistic expectations that you have in your mind fail to meet. It’s the moment you think that your marriage can’t survive for forever. Hold on! Before you make any perception about the social institution of marriage.
Therefore, here is some useful advice for all the newlywed couples that they must follow to understand the concept of marriage in a better way.
• Honeymoon phase has a time period
Many couples complain that their partners don’t reciprocate the way they used to, in the initial days of the marriage. Make it clear in your head that honeymoon days cannot last forever. When you live with someone for 24×7, excitement disappears with time. Remember, it doesn’t symbolize they don’t love you now.
• Take responsibility
Leading a carefree life after marriage is truly impossible for an individual. You have a family now and you are bound to fulfill the responsibilities that come with the package of marriage. Don’t consider them as a burden, instead, take charge and let them be the reason for the matured and happy version of you.
• Tolerance power
For a successful marriage, one of the essential qualities that you must possess is to have a tolerance power to avoid the silly mistakes of your spouse. Having a tolerance attitude when your partner doesn’t do the things you expect will help you to enjoy the marriage.
• Have faith in your marriage
Nowadays, the percentage of divorce cases has increased because couples fail to do mutual efforts to make their relationship last forever. To blossom, your relationship, combine efforts with a pinch of love, care, compassion, tolerance, patience, understanding, and trust is a necessity.
• Appreciate individuality
Expecting your partner to be a photostat of you can wither your marriage. Appreciate that your partner has different opinions, outlook, habit, interests, perceptions, beliefs, ways of doing and handling things as this difference contributes to ignite a spark in your married life.
• Fights are an inevitable part
Don’t let fights become the sole reason of growing distance between you and your partner at any phase of life whether it’s been 5 years or 15 of togetherness. I say, never! It’s natural to have conflicts but the trick is to forget your partner’s mistake immediately. To be in love, you must walk down the past quarrels.
• Don’t stop communication
Many people tend to believe that lack of communication for a few days can rejuvenate their relationship but it’s a myth. Stopping communication with the person you love leads to add more distance. Remember, when you choose to stay quiet for a long period, it becomes your habit that only melts bitterness between both of you.
We are hopeful that implementing these few couples of advice in their love life will surely help couples to make their relationship stronger and lovable.
