Seven Simple Secrets To Make Your Marriage Totally Divorce-Proof
Nothing in life is forever smooth. And unlike perfect romantic stories in movies or books, real-life love stories are often marred with issues and misunderstandings, more so when it comes to marriage — a troubled phase amidst marital bliss is quite disturbing and upsetting for a couple. The honeymoon period does not last for a long time, and it is bound to end. And beyond that, you realize that you have to have some special skills to make your marriage everlasting. It’s never easy to share a life with another person, and that’s where your ability to adjust comes into play. Mostly, the emotional distance between couples start taking a toll on the marriage, and things start falling apart. Our society and our culture don’t provide a Bible that teaches us the nuances of perfect conjugal life. But here are seven simple secrets to strengthen the foundations of your marriage:
Try To Seek Help Before It’s Too Late
A normal couple would keep trying and wait for at least five years before they seek help for any kind of problems in their marital relationship. As a matter of fact, most marriages that collapse hit rock bottom within the first seven years. This implies that a normal married couple tries to compromise and deals with unhappiness for a long period of time. If you sense a trouble or feel that there can arise one, seek help early before time runs out.
Change Your Behavioral Pattern
Avoid criticizing your partner. Many a time, couples tend to discuss sensitive topics and express their concerns and necessities in a negative way. It’s imperative to convey your thoughts respectfully without putting the blame on your partner. Criticism during such touchy times can create an emotional distance, and with time, it might become a bit difficult to bridge that gap. Refrain yourself as much as you can to have a healthy and a happy married life.
Soften Your Arguments
An argument becomes heated up as one partner passes a disdainful remark on the other. This gives rise to a conflict which escalates and worsens with time. Soften your approach of bringing up problems and discuss issues without blaming each other. This will have a positive impact on your relationship and will help you and your partner maintain a calm disposition while having an argument. Remember, a calm mind finds a solution to the gravest of problems. If you discuss things in anger, you’ll end up saying things you’ll regret later on.
Accept Your Spouse’s Influence
A relationship achieves great success if both partners accept each others’ influences. If your better half is trying to persuade you into doing something, give your nod. If you have plans, cancel them since doing so on certain occasions will change things for the better. Your ability to get influenced by your spouse is pivotal to a successful marriage. As per several studies, women are already well adept at accepting their husband’s influence, and the sooner you imbibe the same, the better it will be for your partnership.
Set High Standards For Each Other
Happy and successful partners love setting high standards for each other. A survey suggests that the most successful couples have ignored any distressing and painful behavior or gesture from the other. The lower your tolerance level from any kind of bad behavior from your spouse or partner at the inception of your marital relationship, the smoother will be the road to the future, and needless to mention, such an attitude will eventually lead to happiness.
Learn To Mend Things And End The Argument
Intelligent and successful couples don’t linger on an argument much and know how to mend things before they start getting beyond control and have a negative impact on the companionship. You can repair the situation by either implementing humor, showing signs of care, or simply backing out. Appreciating your partner at certain crucial points also works in your favor. Another way out is to take a break before the argument gets heated up and discuss things when you have both calmed down.
Make The Positives The Cornerstone Of Your Relationship
A couple must always seek out positivity in their relationship. An emotional closeness is like oxygen to a marriage, and to maintain a constant supply of that, don’t forget to focus on the positives. Let go of the negative factors as much as you can.
Every couple dreams to have a meaningful conjugal relationship. Apart from having complete faith in each other, the abovesaid points will go a long way to help you achieve marital bliss.
