Relationship Article Written By Aakriti Bhargava Kulkarni
“You cannot sit back and hope for a happy marriage, you have to create one.”A happy marriage is about memories of togetherness, forgiveness for the mistakes and a promise to never give up on each other.
What makes a marriage a ‘happy one’ or a ‘contended one’? Everyone has their own ideas and suggestions to give.
I feel, to have your happily ever after, you need to fall in love with the same person over and over again or even in different ways. We humans are so unique and each individual is so diverse that there is so much to love in everyone.
People generally say that the honeymoon period has a shelf life or as u can say it comes with something like an expiry date, but does that mean that we cannot bring back those beautiful, fluttery butterfly moments back into the marriage? A marriage or any relationship will have its own rough patches and phases but does that mean it cannot last or it’s unhappy for the rest of your life?
I decided to write about few different ways in which you can keep your marriage fresh and happy always .These are the ways I feel one can have a happy and beautiful relationship with their partner.
#1. The most important rule I would say is “DO NOT BE ANGRY AT THE SAME TIME” I feel ,anger can spoil everything in that moment, and it really derails the wagon of your journey.
#2. Appreciation for who you are and being loved for the same is what we all really long for, so it’s always good to appreciate each other in the marriage.
#3. Saying Thank You and being Thankful towards your partner for the little things they do for us is a beautiful gesture and make the person feel valued and important.
#4. NEVER, absolutely never bring up the issues, problems and fights of the past in the present or current situation. That’s certainly not a good thing one can do in their marriage.It can really make the present situation ugly.
#5. I always believe that respecting each other in a marriage can do wonders, every human deserves respect and that’s what we all must do.
#6. Always focus on the positive and try to have a positive outlook towards marriage and your partner, that really helps.
#7.Goals, Find or create common couple goals, it would make the marriage fun filled and exciting. Decide and do things together. It helps to strengthen the bond and gets you close in your marriage.
Also one last point I would like to write about is ,Understand each other’s needs,ambitions,wants because who will if not you ? Remember you and your spouse are a family and no one gets to be the superior one, It’s a union and a beautiful friendship of two equal, different, unique individuals and you know what ?that’s the best part .Sharing your life and love with someone is one the of best feelings you’ll ever experience.
So always remember that “No Relationship is all sunshine, but two people can share an umbrella and survive the storm together.”It’s a selfless journey in which happiness of the other person is also essential to your own.
