7. Feedback is important
Good communication will save any marriage from sinking. This is why, one of the positive changes to make after your married, and even before, is receiving and giving feedback. Whenever you find yourself with your partner in a calm situation, like a long drive, or about to fall asleep in bed, simply say to your partner, “I’m going to give you my feedback about how I feel and what I think you could do better, and then, I want to hear your feedback.” By allowing yourself and your partner one of these “sessions” now and then, you’re also allowing yourself to change and understand their point of view. Sometimes people only say what they truly feel in the heat of an argument, which ends up hurting the other person way more than it should. The best way to start these types of conversations is always to state the positive aspects first, followed by the negative ones. And remember to accept what the other person is saying as constructive criticism instead of a personal attack.
8. Routine is key
Most of you might think routine is boring, but if you want to know how to make your marriage last for a long time, the secret for it is keeping a routine. A routine doesn’t have to be a planned version of what your day is going to be like. A routine is always grabbing breakfast together, going to the beach every Saturday, or simply cooking a meal together. These little actions, when kept as a routine end up bringing two people closer to each other. Think of it like this, even if you’re having a bad week, you know the sunset at the beach is waiting for you, and so is your partner.
9. Always have fun!
It doesn’t matter if you’re in your 30’s or 60’s, the fun element can never lack in any marriage relationship. For some, fun times can be related to their kids; for others, it is a fancy dinner. It doesn’t matter what your definition of fun is, what matters is that you do whatever makes you happy alongside your partner. Laughing and having fun together is the best remedy for any bad day, and it strengthens your relationship with your partner, not only your love relationship but also the relationship you have as friends. With work, bills, and kids, life can get pretty boring and stressful, so don’t prevent yourself from going to a movie night now and then or challenging your partner for a karaoke night. Life is supposed to be lived, remember that! In the end, you should always keep in mind that you married this person for a reason. Even if the relationship feels doomed, it can still be turned around if you truly wish for it. However, wishing is not enough; both of you have to be on the same page and fight for your love. Love is easy, a marriage not so much, but at the end of the day, love always wins.
