There are many people who ask me for advice for a successful marriage. The fact is, I do not have any one specific piece of advice to offer you. However, I can tell you that there are certain things that you can do that will hopefully help you get your marriage back on track and help it last for the rest of your life. You need to realize that your marriage has to be as good as possible.
Most people do not pay attention to their partner’s love language. This is a big mistake. When we talk to our partners using our “I” terminology, we are really only communicating with our own mind. In other words, we are communicating with our partner using terms that we think makes us feel comfortable and make us seem wise and understanding. While these terms may mean nothing to your partner, they can be very meaningful to you.
If you two are not talking to each other in an emotional way, this is a big problem. This is why so many couples end up with a failing marriage. While communication is extremely important when it comes to having a successful and happy marriage, one another should be communicating just as deeply with each other using your “I” language.
A successful marriage is made through sharing. Not everyone is comfortable sharing their problems and their feelings with their partner. Therefore, couples tend to keep their problems to themselves. If you are having trouble talking to your partner about something that is bothering you, then you are not alone. There are millions of couples out there that are experiencing the same thing.
One way that you can communicate more effectively with your spouse is to try to listen more than you speak. One of the major causes of fights in marriages is when one party is trying to speak first and the other responds with, “I already told you that”. Remember that everyone has something to say and listening to what your partner has to say is vital. When you have a long and drawn out conversation with your spouse then you should give them the floor. Listen as much as they want to talk, and then tell them when you need to get on with your day. Taking turns being the one who is leading the conversation is a great way to maintain healthy communication in a marriage.
The next of the advice for a successful marriage tips is to plan a date night with your spouse on a regular basis. This is very important. If you do not plan this with your partner then it will only become a battle of the wills. Both parties must want the date night to be successful or it will be a complete disaster. However, if you two do plan a date night together on a regular basis, then you will both know when the time is right to have that special occasion. Planning a date night is not always easy but with some patience, you can have that perfect date night which will last a lifetime.
