Advice for a good marriage can in some cases seem a little obvious, but in a lot of cases it can seem like just the advice you need. When you are involved in a long term relationship, sometimes it’s hard to see the wood for the trees, and it takes only the most basic advice for us to see what is wrong.

Advice for a good marriage #1

The best piece of marriage advice is to be honest with yourself when your marriage is and isn’t working. If you kid yourself that everything is fine when it isn’t, things aren’t likely to get any better – in fact you will usually notice things getting steadily worse. The sooner you spot and admit to problems, the sooner you can move past them. Half the work is done as soon as you admit something is wrong, so don’t be afraid.

Advice for a good marriage #2

Learn to communicate effectively. Too often relationships degenerate into accusations and fighting as the default method of interaction. Can you honestly hope for things to last if that’s how you both behave? If you have something under your skin, sit down and talk it out. Talking about things sensibly rarely makes things worse-unlike accusations and arguing!

Advice for a good marriage #3

Understand that you can’t fix the problems in your marriage solely fixing your partner’s behaviour. A marriage is exactly that-the joining of two people-so it’s not healthy to make one person do all the changing and adapting. This will not lead to a healthy relationship. It’s much better to sit and talk it out and then work out how you can both make things better for each other. It’s also a lot easier this way, as each of you will usually only need to make small adjustments to keep the other happy.

Advice for a good marriage #4

Learn the difference between being in love and falling in love. When you fall in love, the person can do no wrong and people are able to behave in ways that their partner may not necessarily agree with in a normal state of mind. That’s why it can take work to stay in love-the love is still there, but you can’t expect to act however you please and for it to still be there. Love is like a fire, it sometimes needs to be tended to make sure it still burns.

Advice for a good marriage #5

Understand the principles of marriage karma-you get what you give, so if you go the extra yard for your partner and prove yourself to be kind, caring and considerate, the chances are they will act a lot more like that toward you too. Think about when you see couples that are really in love-it’s rarely just one of them doing the kind things is it?

As always the above marriage advises are just to get your creative juices flowing. In the end you have to make the decision. To act is key. You can spent hours on end searching for the one quick-fix step that will magically save your relationship, but nothing in life is that simple.

Let me ask you this. Can you visualize yourself not having to work? Unless of course your are a natural born millionaire or have acquired vast amount of inheritance, for most folks the answer would be NO. Even if there are days when you just wished to be home and not go to work, you’ll be quick to kick that thought off to the curb – ‘cause you wont get paid if you aren’t working.

 Apply the same principle to everything in your life and you’ll be amazed at the results.
