Every marriage has it’s ups and downs. Everyone want’s to have a strong marriage of course. But it is only up to you two to create a successful strong loving marriage.If you have this following characteristics in your relationship I can guarantee you that you have a strong marriage or relationship.Take a look and see if you have a strong marriage.
The most important aspect in any type of relationship is God. Have God present in your marriage.Do not neglect God make him a part of your family a part of your marriage.There is a saying that says: Those who pray together stay together.
Trust is the key to any strong relationship.
Without trust your marriage will definitely fail. Speaking from experience it’s really hard to maintain a relation ship without trust.It takes time to built trust but a second for it all to go away.When trust is broken it will be much harder to rebuild it than the first time. So secure your marriage with trust.
- No privacy.
I’m sure some people will disagree with me on this one.But really when you decide to get married all of your privacy is gone.There shouldn’t be no type of private aspects in your life.Because you are no longer two but one. One of the biggest issue people have nowadays is the phone. Let me tell you something if your partner make a big fuss about you going trough his phone is because he has something to hide.People that don’t have things to hide wouldn’t mind if from time to time you take a peek trough their phones. But just don’t make it a habit because if you go trough his phone like a millions times a day.He might feel like you don’t trust him.
You treat each other with respect.Respect their choice in life.Respect his decisions. Don’t put each other down,especially in front of others. Give them their value in life.If there is mutual respect in your marriage it will be a successful one.
- Forgive and forget
Be quick to forgive.Don’t hold on to old grudges.Forgive and forget.Move on.
It’s hard I know.It will take some time to really forgive an forget.Even though you didn’t really forget.Just avoid mentioning past events in the future.I have been there i know what i’m talking about.You decided to forgive him right?So bringing it up again will just make it worse.
Being intimate with your spouse is one of the most natural things in a marriage.
Being intimate doesn’t only apply to a great sex life… well its a plus for sure.But things like cuddling while you sleep,back hugs,surprise kisses also counts.
Lack of communication is a BIG no no.Communicate with each other.
I understand some people might be introverts.But if you are having a hard time communicating with your partner you need to fix it. Ask questions like how was your day? What are you reading? Baby do you mind explaining to me about (things that he is interested in but you don’t have a clue what the heck it is,for example, hobbies, sports, TV programs,video games etc).Whit out noticing you are having a conversation.
- Put each other first
Put each others needs first.Before anything or anyone else.Except if you have children because children always comes first.a great example of what i mean is,in my case I needed to choose between going to a soccer game with him,or a movie with my girls.If you know me you know that i wouldn’t say no to no movie.But he wanted me to go watch a soccer game with him.Something he normally does with his friends Me thinking that his friends couldn’t go,said yess called my friends ad move the movie night for the next week .On the way to the game he called one of his friends and asked them to buy one more ticket.Surprised i asked him:why did you invite me if your friends are going.His answer:because i love you and wanna be with you. From that day on I always put him first.But still don’t neglect your friends you need to find a balance and make time for them too.
- Best friend
Be your spouse’s best friend.Sure both of you can have other best friends but make sure that you are each others best friends first.
- Unconditional love
Last but not least.If there is unconditional love between you two .Everything I mentioned before will automatically be in your marriage.
