The Daily Routine of a Happy Couple
When all the clouds have popped out and it doesn’t feel like you’re walking on sunshine as it used to be, what do you do to at least lighten up the mood?
Just about every girl who gets married feels this sort of lull time at some point in time. Whether it’s the day after the wedding or on the 25th year of marriage, there’s no way of avoiding it. How exactly did Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith make it after more than a decade of marriage? There’s no secret to it. And the best part is, any man can try them as much as the Prince of Wales can (in private of course!).
Don't you love waking up to the sweetest words of I love you’s from your partner? Writing it out adds more meaning to it. Happy couples leave stick-on notes on places their partners frequent to. Irish posts, “Good morning handsome”, on her husband’s coffee at least once a week. Marlon admits it gets predictable but it never fails to make his day. Try putting it in places your partner least expects it like the toilet seat cover, his socks or at his laptop monitor.
Do more than just communicate; talk about your day. Most couples skip the part of asking the other how his day was. The sad thing is, we’re usually more excited to do some catching up with friends than tell those stories with our partners. Make your partner your best buddy. Commit to be both a tattle tale and a good listener everyday and you’re off to a good and lasting marriage.
Hot and cold
When the water boils, we turn off the stove. When we want the bonfire put off, we don’t add woods, else the fire gets stronger. Instead, we throw water on it. Couples live in harmony when the other knows how to keep it low while his partner is burning with anger. There’s one story I’ve read about an angry husband shouting at the top of his voice over a door not opening up. His wife came up to him, patted his back and calmly said, “What a fine voice”.
Any relationship founded on humor and fun is bound to last. Jean and Ruel farts as loud as they can to get a hold of the much coveted remote control for the whole night. As gross as it is, it’s what makes their relationship click. Create your own silly moments with your partner and watch the years go by like days. Before you know it, you’ll both be counting gray hairs on your heads.
