One cup of forgiveness, 1/2 a teaspoon of humor, 2 tablespoons of forgiveness, 1 ounce of understanding, 3 cloves of forgiveness, 1 1/2 dessert spoons of thoughtfulness, 4 llbs of forgiveness.
Mix all of the above with prayer, toss in the oven of love, bake for years, leave to cool for a few more years, cut and serve, it is always enough to feed a whole happy and forgiving family.
Communication, trust, and laughter. All of these make the two people feel comfortable and able to tackle any challenge in life.
My 36th anniversary is the 20th. Figuring out your and your spouses love language is so helpful. I realized this a few years ago when my husband was very ill I tried reflexology to help relieve his pain. What I soon learned was my anger about the situation abated when I was working on his feet. His pain was relieved and he felt so loved because his love language is touch. Feeling loved helped him heal and made him nicer.
I'm coming up on our second anniversary and still trying to figure out the answer to this question. We are so DIFFERENT....le sigh.
I think the best recipe includes communication and excludes assumptions.
Lots and Lots of grace
Humor - truckloads
The ability to clench one's teeth, and not respond the way I (ahem) really want to.
Breathe deeply and remember he has the Y chromosome
He is from Mars.
I think you first have to start off with two people who truly love each other. They must also have the same goals for the marriage and AGREE on how to obtain them. When two people are on the same page it's amazing how smoothly things run. It really pays to get to know someone very well prior to getting married.

Communication is the number 1 ingredient for a wonderful, happy marriage. My husband and I are both in our 2nd marriage. We talked a lot before we got married. We knew that communication was extremely important. We have never went to bed angry with one another, and we never argue. If something is bothering either of us, we talk about it. I believe many marriages can be saved if the couple has an open line of communication.
How much forgivness do you need? All you should have to have is understanding then the forgivness will follow. Compromise will come into play at all times...it is a give and take situation all the time with any relationship you are in whether it is parent to child or husband to wife. You have more forgivness in your recipe than anything else...how about more understanding, trust, and thoughtfulness in our "recipes"?
Understanding each other,give surprise Gifts.
The most thing is Love&care for each other
understanding eachother and handling issues togather with care and by stopping blame game. baseless blames leave longterm effect on good relationship.
Women always, as per my experience, sacrifice more for their husband and childern. Thats why i never blamed for anything to my lifepartner.
its your love and his love , trust will make your marriage happier
Communication, understanding, making compromises, sharing a leisure activity, dedicating one day per week only to you and your partner where you can go eat in a fancy restaurant, go watch a movie, prepare snacks and go picnicking in a park, cook a special meal together, like an exotic dish, etc. The "to do" list is endless but without any doubt, be creative, spontaneous, surprise your partner from time to time and make him/her feel loved.
The recipe for a happy marriage is trust, respect, not being judgemental, honesty, communication, and love.
Start with a friend, don't rush love. Keep an open mind, there are times you will agree to disagree. Don't fight dirty(bring up old fights) Look for areas you can agree, Slow to anger and quick to praise. Remember to say: I love you everyday. Don't forget to say I am sorry. Hold and kiss her/him like it might be the last time.
Fidelity towards one's partner. Being faithful is very important in marriage. understanding each other, caring and loving and giving God a special place in your life are ingredients for a happy marriage.
Loyalty, dedication, sincerity, honesty, lots of humour, an amazing friendship, a touch of understanding, and a little sense of satisfaction is all that it takes for a happy marriage. At least, this is what I think.
I heard somebody say on TV once(a husband referring to his wife) that the secret of a long successful marriage is doing what you're told. I don't know how true that is and in effect I'd say it's easier said than done. So I would say by making sure you're with somebody who you truly love.
A happy marriage requires a little love and caring about what the other wants and needs. But don't neglect your own wants and needs or it will never be happy for both parties.
The main ingredients to a happy marriage life is trust and understanding your partner. Sprinkle some sacrifice to the recipe and flavor with love and forgiveness. A women always desires that her husband remains honest to her and a men wants his wife to remain committed to him. So, knowing each other will make the dish more tasty. It may take time to build a mouthwatering recipe of strong relation, but when it is built no outside force can break it up. Rumors and misunderstandings can come up everytime, but a couple who understands each other can break the shackles of the barriers and create another milestone of a successful married life. The recipe is simple yet hard to maintain and takes time to nourish, but when served really makes up for every pain and sacrifice in life. Go for it and you will never regret.
I think it has to do with forgiveness, selflessness, and choosing to commit and love.
Trust,space and friendship mix in right amount .....your marriage will be surely a happy marriage!
Try to communicate each other.Don't hide anything.Just share the things which makes the family happy.
trust and confidence in eachother because if you dont have trust in a relationship you doomed
Love and trust is the ingredients for a successful marriage life. You love your partner and trust him/her; that will make the marriage life a heavenly one!!!
Wine, vodka, gin, a little rum and whiskey, and occasionally, with care, tequila! Also, separate bathrooms, and if necessary, separate houses (my uncle and his girlfriend have kept a river - literally - between them for 25 years!)
On a more serious note, check out Harville Hendrix's "Getting the Love You Want" - it is a very down-to-Earth (no Mars / Venus stuff) about relationships and makes more sense than anything else I've ever read on the subject. In the beginning he establishes a LOT of credibility by listing things people in love say to each other, and as I read the list, I thought, "I said that . . . and that . . . and I was told that . . . and that . . ." - and then he goes on to explain why these are common expressions and feelings.
And then, there's the modern marraige, a la Rod Stewart - a guy finds a woman he just can't get along with, buys her a house, and then never talks to her again . . . ba-bump, ching!

Be the fierce guardian of the other person's private time, and personal goals and needs. Give all the things to your loved one that you want for yourself. Spend a healthy amount of time apart, and remember they are just another human being trying to make their way in the world, just like you.
love,trust,communication,respect to each other dont give him a reason to find someone new yes marriage is not easy we have manny problem and trial but thats not a reason to give up keep him/her always happy with you always remember that your spouse is a gift from god show your love the way he/she wanted
There is no rocket science of happy marriage. Couple needs to understand and respect each other feelings. Human beings do make mistake and at times quite big ones though but that does not mean you have to spoil the whole relation. Just never let your loved one to loose trust on you. Because trust once gone, never comes back for sure. So keep it simple and give other person the space he/she requires and never be demanding or impose restrictions.
Try this out it will certainly work. It has worked for many.
My opinion is that the secret recipe behind a sucessful married life is the proper understanding between the partners. Both of them should try to know about the positives and negatives of their partner and try to behave as they wish. To maintain a sucessful married life some your likes and dislikes must be sacrificed.
Harmony! Is this the person you wish to grow old with, go through the ups and downs with and do you wish to be there when they need you the most. Do you look into that mans or womans eyes and see beauty, truth and your other half. Are you commited to them no matter what they say, no matter how they act and no matter what has happened in their past. To understand that each day is a new day, each kiss is a new connection to your love, each sexual experience is growth as a couple. To keep the relationship fresh, new and ever changing. When things get old and repetitive take a chance, go on a journey together, take the leap of faith you took when you said "I do". Remember that both of you equally make the relationship what it is and in the end, you have each other and can be the friends and lovers you were seeking for when you first met!!
