A classic saying goes, "Victory favors preparation." Simply said, you can only succeed if you're willing to put in the effort. And you can't win or do well at something if you aren't willing to put forth the necessary effort. You need all the information and knowledge you can gather to navigate through an institution as complex as marriage. It won't be easy (never is), but having a good understanding of what you're up against will aid you in getting through it. You must comprehend and know the following in order to have a successful and happy marriage...
Love is, at its essence, a decision to devote one's life to another. It is much more than a transitory emotion as depicted on TV, the big screen, and in romance novels. Feelings pass, but a genuine commitment to each other lasts a lifetime and that is what constitutes a strong marriage. Marriage is a commitment to each other through good and terrible times. It's easy to commit when things are going well. True love, on the other hand, is demonstrated by staying faithful through life's challenges.
2. There is more to marriage than physical attraction
You may have been pulled to them because of their beautiful eyes, witty sense of humor, athletic physique, or height, but keep in mind that no one knows what tomorrow will bring. Those things might alter at some point, and they won't be as ‘fine' as they once were. You must look beyond what is visible to the naked eye. Cling to them because they'll give you a reason to stay even if you don't want to
Patience and forgiveness will always be needed in a married partnership because no one is flawless .Successful marriage partners learn to show their partner unwavering patience and forgiveness. They are humble enough to admit their own flaws and don't expect their partner to be faultless. They don't bring up previous mistakes to entrap their partner. When mistakes happen, they don't seek retribution or make amends. Forgive your partner if you have a grudge against him or her from the past. Your heart and relationship will be set free as a result of this.
4. No one is perfect
To be honest, everyone has a defect. Expect a spouse who can do no wrong, but don't set your expectations too high. You'll be let down on numerous occasions. Understand that they will make mistakes because they are human, but at the end of the day, you love each other and that is all that matters.
Selfishness breaks up more marriages than any other factor, despite the fact that it will never appear in a study. Finances, a lack of commitment, infidelity, or incompatibility are all blamed in surveys, yet selfishness is at the basis of the majority of these issues. A selfish person is only interested in themselves, has no tolerance, and never learns how to be a good spouse. Provide your spouse with your hopes, dreams, and life. And you start sharing your lives with one other.
6. Kindness is a virtue that should be practiced by both of you
"It's crucial to treat your spouse with respect and understanding. It usually ends in defensiveness and hostility when you are critical and judgmental.” So, if you want to keep your marriage pleasant, don't criticize your spouse's character when you're angry. Don't say anything like "you're such a jerk. You don't tidy up after yourself.” Instead, say something like, "I'd appreciate it if you could do the dishes today because I cooked dinner." Take a listen to how much more pleasant that sounds.
