Why does marriage terrify many young people in India these days? Why in India is the rate of divorce rising? Love or arranged, marriage is one of the biggest phases of change a couple goes through. Often, in love marriages, people enter the relationship with high hopes but, with added responsibilities and struggles the charm starts fading. In arranged marriages, people are often full of inhibition making them reluctant to accept the change with open arms. But whatever the type of marriage you are in there are some golden rules that work for all.
Knowing the man, I married for about 22 years I would love to share you some tips for a successful marriage as advice for newly wedded couples well as ageless couples!
Good to expect but not to expect
Relations is about expectations but don’t have over expectations with your man or woman. Give both of you time and space to adjust to the new phase.
Trust, respect, and friendship
This is one golden rule that all books on a happy marriage talk about. Trust each other and never do things to break that trust, respect the person you married as well as their family. You might deal with difficult new family members be frank, firm if needed and polite when you are in an argument but, not disrespect. Share things openly with your spouse like a true friend. Have a democratic relationship where you both have freedom of speech and expression.
Do things together and find time for each other
I know life is busy but, find time to do simple things together like cooking, cleaning while one-person cooks, playing a card game, having a shared hobby etc. Have some rules like no TV when you eat, or no mobile surfing while you are dining out. Having a conversation even for 10 minutes by getting early in the morning before leaving for work.
Appreciate your man who goes out and does a heroic job to tend for the family and appreciate your woman who is a multitasking goddess. Show your appreciation openly in words not make it for granted.
Surprise your spouse with their favourite perfume, or a ‘thank-you ‘or ‘I love you card’ a rose it anything simple once a while. It helps to keep the fun and spark alive.
You are two unique people together for life. Don’t let your relationship overshadowed comparing it with failed relationships around you or others whom you think as perfect couples.
Never hesitate to make up after a fight
Don’t let ego come over a relationship. It’s not bad to be the first one to apologize or start a talk after an argument. Follow the golden rule of not going to bed with an unsettled fight.
Making your life happy as a couple is in the hands of you and your spouse.
You share your life with someone, live under the same roof and call them partners for life. What’s the point in not being happy and still living together? Hoping for bloom of happiness and fun in your marriage. May you have a happily ever after!
