I have been married for almost 7 years. I think communicating is top. You have to be able to talk to each other about anything and everything.
Trust, you need to trust each other 110%.
Seperate lives.. Yes, you are married. But, you should be able to go out and enjoy a night out with the girls, or your hubby say go golf with the guys if he want, or get a beer and catch the game at the bar. It is okay to do some things seperate as a couple, it is healthy..
SEX LIFE…. ALWAYS keep it going and exciting!!!! One thing I know, we have an amazing sex life and I will never let that go. It is important in a relationship. We just really enjoy that time together and always make it fun.
Learning when to let it go… Every couple argues at times, yes. But, sometimes it makes it worse when people just won’t let things go and move on. Sometimes you need to just know when to say sorry and let the issue go. Sorry is such a powerful word.
PRAISE AND APPRECIATE.. Always, always, praise your man. Tell him how much you appreciate him, how handsome he is and just how much you love him. I tell my husband everyday what a great hubby and daddy he is. I tell him I love him and all.. And, he does the same with me. Just this little effort each day keeps us smiling and happy. It makes you feel important and wanted. Make it a point to give each other a compliment at least once a day. Believe me, it is a wonderful thing.
AND ALWAYS BE MADLY IN LOVE… I know someone else on here says you won’t always be madly in love. Yes, people fight and you may be annoyed with your hubby. But, coming from someone who was married once before, once I stopped being in love it was over. It was sad, and sucked.. In this marriage, everyday I feel madly in love with my husband. When I look at him I am just so in love. He does one thing to help, or says something, and I just fall in love all over. I remember everyday why I fell in love in he first place, and I think that is a great thing. I truly believe you can be madly in love with your husband everyday! And, we all should be. It is such a wonderful feeling. 7 years later he still gives me butterflies when he kisses me. 🙂
