“Success in marriage does not come merely through finding the right mate, but through being the right mate.” – Barnett R. Brickner
Being a successful couple and having a successful married life is a god gift. Partners have to really work hard to be successful in their life. They need to understand each other’s feelings and respect these feelings.
1. Successful Couples Try to See Things From each Other’s Point of View
They don’t become defensive, but they practice empathy. Couples spend hours sitting together and gently discussing the situations and their respective feelings in order to come to a place of empathy. They actively show one another they care by trying to see things from the other’s point of view.
2. Give Time
Relationships won’t work if partners don’t give quality time to each other. Discussing about their future planning and giving more time to each other is one of the keys to a successful and happy married life. Therefore it is required that you and your partner give more time to each other than any other relationship.
3. Take Responsibility
As a husband and wife you each have your own responsibilities in your married life . Each one has to take their share and be a responsible person. Responsibility means carrying out your duties towards your children and family.
Whether it is an arranged marriage or a love marriage, partners need their privacy time and quality time to spend together. Getting married and getting pregnant in a short span of time and consequently entering into another big world of responsibility can affect a couple’s privacy time. After all, partners will be too busy caring about their baby who is being introduced into this world.
A successful marriage is far more valuable than most of the temporary things we chase after in our lives. And it will always last longer.
