Nine Steps for a Successful Married Life

Updated on April 25, 2009

For a successful husband-wife relationship it is imperative that both should behave in a sensible manner. It is important to understand each other and avoid involving in trivial issues. Here are some steps to maintain a healthy and happy relationship:

1. Try to avoid confrontation

If either of the partner is in a mood of confrontation then the other partner should control himself/herself. It is important that both should not loose temper at the same time.

2. Be a good listener

Always try to listen to your partner’s views with patience. Majority of us try to impress upon our own views and when there is turn of the other partner we just try to ignore.

3. Value your partner

Everyone likes to be praised. Do not put forward the mistakes of your partner in front of others. When we praise someone then he/she is encouraged to perform better.

4. Keep your love fresh

It has been found that after some time of marriage, husband and wife start giving less importance to each other. They start taking each other in a casual way. Therefore, for a healthy husband-wife relationship it is essential to maintain warmth in your relationship.

5. Do not over-expect

A single person can not possess all the qualities. The true meaning of marriage is union of two complementary persons. Therefore, we should realize the truth and learn to live with the incapabilities of each other.

6. Have patience

If we learn to control ourselves then we can overcome many problems. We can avoid confrontation through patience. Practically, we can avoid majority of confrontations if we remain calm and cool.

7. Enjoy life

When we have decided to live together then it is necessary that we enjoy life through mutual co-operation. We should learn to laugh. We can make our life more colorful through decent teasing and affection.

8. Learn to forgive

For a successful and happy married life we will have to learn to forgive each other. The practice of forgiving should not be limited to one or two occasions rather it should become a lifelong practice. It is better not to expect any return in lieu of such forgiving

9. Remember happy moments

Have some time, sit together and try to re-live happy moments  of your life. This will recharge your present life. You will feel that it is difficult to live without each other
