11 Signs You and Your Husband Will Be Together Forever
Marriage is difficult and is loaded with hurdles at every phase. When divorce rates soar and marriage rates drop, one can't help but wonder whether there are any good marriages left. Fortunately, numerous marriages exist where wives and husbands take their promises sincerely. Check these 11 signs which will indicate that you will have a successful marriage.
Both husband and wife should respect and like each other. In successful marriages, spouses try to meet each other's needs because they genuinely like to see their partners smiling. They are worried when their spouse seems sad. They are bothered and ask what's wrong when something looks unusual. They offer solutions. And they show gratitude and appreciation for each other by thanking and hearing each other out.
Are you sensitive to your spouse's difficulties? Marriages are battered with small and large challenges. In successful marriages, no matter what obstacle you have, you are there for each other. Those difficulties are hard to face, however, your attentiveness will pay off in the long run.
You treat each other with kindness. Nothing is more valuable than treating the person you love with care, appreciation, empathy, and consideration. If you are giving more respect to an unknown person than to your partner, take a pause and step back. You should revisit your priorities before it is too late.
You should let go of grudges as anger will destroy a marriage. You just need to stand up and say I am upset because of so and so reason. When a spouse claims to be fine but he/she is upset, it builds an environment in which one partner has to guess the other's true emotions. The more you tell your partner what worries you, the more he/she will know how to assist you. Marriages are strong and successful when couples learn to communicate their feelings respectfully and clearly during a time of difficulty.
Are you really kind and loving to your spouse? Charity and love should come easily to you if you are in love. Little acts of charity and love are simple - a small act of service, a kiss before work, a phone call or text during the day, a little note on the bathroom mirror.
You both are having your own space. When you are in love, it doesn’t mean you have to stay together for 24 hours. When you are taking time to pursue your friendships and hobbies, it keeps your relationship strong and fresh. It provides you both the opportunity to grow as individuals, even while you are developing as a couple.
You should be trustworthy. Are you hiding your online relationships, purchases, or your feelings from your spouse? That is a big NO. In successful marriages, couples have each other's support and they do not keep anything confusing or secret from each other.
Dating is the adhesive that joins together love, understanding, and communication. If your marriage is a keeper, you treasure that special weekly time with your spouse. As we all know, we live in a busy world which is full of all sorts of things that re-order our priorities. Setting aside one evening to be alone with your spouse is imperative for a maintained, successful marriage.
When people in strong relationships fight, it's normal because they fight fairly and productively. If you aren’t fighting, there is a high possibility that you are holding back. As we all know, disagreements are natural and common. You should strive to understand your partner instead of putting them down. When it is your mistake, accept it and say sorry.
Have you ever shared your dreams and hopes with your spouse? Have you ever struggled together to achieve them? We all have dreams and hopes; we achieve some in life and some we don't. However, couples in lasting relationships share their dreams and hopes with each other and then work together toward turning those dreams into reality.
You always make joint decisions. From how many children to have to what movie to see, you take decisions mutually and listen to each other’s desires and concerns.
