There are 5 SIMPLE STEPS that I am going to share with you today that will provide a healthy and well balanced marriage for you and your love. BUT, keep in mind, it requires an ongoing team effort. If participation is not put in by BOTH parties, your marriage/relationship WILL suffer! Without further ado, let’s begin…
Step One: Be strong where they are weak.
If you have the ability to step to the plate and take over in areas where your partner is weak (and them do the same for you-NO ONE is perfect after all!) then your relationship AND home life will benefit from it.
Step Two: Become partners in crime.
Always work together and make important decisions as a team. You know the old saying that two heads are better than one? Well, it’s true. When you make decisions together it opens the floor for different perspectives and suggestions. When you agree to discuss the pros and cons of each situation prior to making a final decision, your life together will ultimately run A LOT smoother. Who wouldn’t want to simplify their everyday life, right?!
Step Three: Constant Communication is VITAL to the success of any relationship!
The more you talk and involve your partner in matters of the heart, the healthier your union will remain. Share your thoughts, your feelings, and your experiences with them. Discuss your ideas and plans. Keep the air ways open and available during all hours of the night and day. If the ability to communicate is lost, your relationship will be doomed.
Step Four: Total and complete honesty is key here, regardless of whether or not it hurts.
If you have to concoct stories (and then keep track of them), then you are doing yourself and your spouse/partner a huge injustice. Do them a favor and cut your ties now. If you are incapable of being honest with them, then you aren’t ready for a serious relationship. Don’t waste their time; allow them the chance to meet who they were destined to be with. Life is too short after all! Any relationship that caters to this fresh approach can withstand any long-term situation…Trust me!
Step Five: Sharing intimate moments together is extremely important for a marriage!
While sex is fantastic, it is NOT what I’m talking about here. Intimacy is kissing, caressing, joining together as one. The connection that forms during these moments are fuel for that unquenchable flame in your heart. Feed that flame every chance that you get and keep it vivacious; give it all the nourishment that it needs.
“We may not have it all together, but together we have it all!”
So, that’s my take on it, and so far these steps have allowed me a rewarding and happy marriage. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
