Marriage Advice for Lasting Relationships

If you were to ask a married couple who have been together for many years what the best marriage advice they received was, what do you think they’d say? Whatever it is, you should listen to them. Anyone with a proven track record of staying married in these times certainly knows what they are talking about. Fortunately, many people have asked married couples these questions and because of this we can learn from their wisdom. Unfortunately, putting into practice some of this marriage advice is not always easy but at least you will have a sound starting place.

Marriage advice tip number one. Make sure you marry the right person. OK that sounds like it is common sense and there is no need to even mention something so asinine, right? Survey divorced couples, though, and see how many people “just knew” it was wrong but went through with it anyway or who had doubts but attributed it to cold feet. Hindsight is twenty-twenty but if couples can take a step back and really analyze their relationship before taking it to the next step, it will save a lot of heartache down the road. Have doubts? Wait until you don’t. Already know there are significant problems? Just say no.

Here’s another obvious tip for you. Communicate. Yes, you already know that but are you actually doing it? If you are, is it being done productively and effectively? Communication can mean screaming at each other and calling each other names. You are definitely communicating but it is definitely not in a positive manner. Instead are you discussing your day, having conversations about mutual goals, discussing issues and rationally resolving them together? Now that is what effective communication is all about.

Keep the romance alive. Even if you are knee deep in taking one child to soccer practice, changing another’s diaper, having a phone in your ear talking with a difficult client, trying to budget bills for the month and deciding what to make for dinner, you still need time for romance. Make an effort with each other and set aside quality time where it is just the two of you outside the pressures of work and family. Do not take each other for granted and make sure you always realize you are both adults and sexual beings who need some one on one time to act like it. Regularly book the babysitter, leave the cell phone for emergencies only and go out on a romantic date. You will feel rejuvenated and ready to face the daily grind again.
