Nowadays, the term ‘long-lasting marriage’ is an oxymoron. With divorce rates rising, separation has become the easiest solution to tackle any rocky relationship! No wonder, fewer couples are giving their marriage a deserving second chance. Instead of ignoring and brushing your marital woes under the carpet, make your marriage a happy and long-lasting affair.
1. The Big C — Communication
If communication is missing in your marriage, before you even realise it, it will slowly destroy your relationship. Everyone talks about honesty in a marriage but that’s only possible if communication lines are open. So even if you’re busy with your work, children, gym, household chores or social activities, just set aside 15 minutes in the day, especially for your spouse. Use this precious time to sit and talk about things — not just about work and family but even anything random.
2. Dignity and respect
Love is overrated — it’s respecting your spouse and giving him dignity that will strengthen your bond and help your relationship in the long run. You may be married to him and he may be an integral part of your life, but that doesn’t mean you own him. It’s important you don’t dominate or boss him around, alone or in front of family and friends. Learn to respect his feelings and decisions, even if you don’t agree.
