Marriage seems to be one of the oldest bonds of the human race. After all its the union of Adam and Eve that has given birth to this world. But somehow the institution of marriage seems to be losing its sheen in today’s fast paced environment. With each of the partners, getting too busy in their professional lives a healthy and stable marriage seems to be becoming a dream. Based on my years of experience of interacting with couples and looking around the world it saddens me that so many people seem to be having problems with our marriage these days. The stress of marriage a lot of times takes a huge toll on all other aspects of life as well.
Though lots has been said and written on this topic for ages, here is just a small attempt from my side to list certain factors that can give us all a much more happy and stable marriage:
1) Respect your partner: Love fades away but respect lasts. Over a period of time in every marriage the love or the lust factor reduces and all that binds two people together is a sense of mutual respect and admiration. It is very important to be completely aware of the strengths of your partner and respect and regard him or her for those. Form a mutual admiration society among yourselves and you will find the relation rock solid always.
2) Have trust: It is said trusting a person is much more difficult than loving him or her and trust is the most important pillar of a successful marriage. Whatever your spouse does instead of doubting or getting angry the first thought that should come to your mind is that there must definitely be a good reason for the other person to do or say this. And with this thought when you start looking for a reason most of the times you find a valid one. Lack of trust absolutely shatters a marriage and then there can be no coming back, so behold it like your most valued treasure in life.
3) Let the fire on: Don’t let the lust die in the marriage ever. Whatever be the age, time, circumstance… always keep the passion for each other going. Nothing resolves a fight or a bitterness better than those beautiful moments of closeness. A wonderful sex session makes you forget all the grudges you have been holding and wants you to always start afresh with a new energy.
