make your marriage merrier
1Don’t control your partner
Even though you are sharing a house and a family together, each one of you still has their own life and own character that should not be controlled.
If you asked your partner before to behave in a specific way, then you practiced “external control” as psychologists name it, which is a technique that someone may tend to use in order to earn what they want without considering its effects on others.
Learning how to not control your spouse may be a very long process because it is somehow hard to detect by the person who practices it. In order to maintain it, start with asking yourself if you can control your own behavior before ordering your partner to do the same, remember that you can control only yourself and no one else.
2Take care of yourself
Once you get comfortable with your spouse, taking care of your looks becomes your last priority. But being too comfortable may decrease your confidence and increase your chances of obesity and aging.
By taking care of yourself and following a healthy plan, you will always remain confident in front of your spouse which will increase the chances of your happiness.
However, by taking care of your looks, we don’t mean to always put makeup on (for women) or always trim your beard (for men), it simply means to stay healthy and not abandon your natural habits of looking good to yourself.
Also, don’t forget to take care of your mental side as well; reading a book or two will benefit your brain and your marriage unexpectedly.
