Creating a successful marriage takes more than just love. Both parties must be and stay engaged throughout the marriage. It’s important to have honesty, a strong spiritual foundation, open and clear communication and lots of personal sacrifice.
Here are some healthy habits to help create a successful marriage:
• Be true to yourself. Honesty is so important. So, be honest with yourself, know who you are and embrace everything about yourself. Grow together as a couple.
• Stay connected to God. Be sure to always believe in a higher power. Do not underestimate the importance of this in the happiness of your marriage and in your own life
• Make time for daily checkups or meetings. Set a schedule for both of you to spend quality time together. For example, have a set date night or just spend time holding one another.
• Communicate your desires clearly and succinctly. When communicating with one another, speak calmly and then figure out together how you can get things accomplished.
• Put your partner’s needs above your own. The happiest couples in the world each place their partner’s needs and wants ahead of their own. It is the humility in this act that lets your partner know how much you love them and care for them.
• Choose happiness daily. Happiness is a choice that exists only in the present moment. There is nothing greater than coming home to a happy spouse.
• Take time out for friends, family and yourself. Make sure to feed your soul with a healthy diet and exercise, visit with family and friends, and take care of yourself.
