How to Make Your Marriage Stronger Than Ever
— How to Make Your Marriage Stronger Than Ever
1.) Marriage Tip #1 – Talk about the days when you first met. And I don’t mean that in a negative way… like, for example, don’t say things like… “Remember when we used to hold hands? Why don’t we do THAT anymore.”
Instead, express it in a way that evokes positive memories inside your spouse’s mind. Talk about the amazing first date that you had, where it was, what you ate, and how they looked. Talk about the road trip you took up island where you camped under the stars by the lake. Make an effort to remember something SPECIFIC about your spouse… for example, mention what they were wearing, the smile on their face, or how incredibly excited you were to be with them.
2.) Marriage Tip #2 – Give your partner some much needed self-love time. This is especially important if you’re the overbearing type. Letting your spouse hang with their friends, pursue passions and hobbies that they love, and spending time with their family alone will only fuel their desire to spend time with you. It’s been proven that maintaining separate social lives and being supportive of that can help boost the quality of your marriage significantly. And in turn, they’ll allow you that much needed alone time that YOU may need as well.
3.) Marriage Tip #3 – Bond with their friends. Your spouse should be the most important person in your life… and because of that, you should try your best to have in interest in the people they love. While you don’t have to be best mates with your spouse’s friends, it does help that you get along with them as much as possible. Once your partner sees you putting in the effort, they’re going to put in the effort to get along with your friends and family as well. It’s a win-win!
4.) Marriage Tip #4 – Use the power of TOUCH. Even if you cringe at the idea of showing public displays of affection, do your best to suck it up and show your partner that you enjoy feeling their touch. Put in an effort to kiss each other randomly, hold their hand, give them massages, and cuddle with them. Physical contact will not only bring both of you closer together, but it also aids in the production of ‘feel good’ hormones as well. So don’t be surprised that your spouse is happier and “more in love” after a solid cuddle session!
5.) Marriage Tip #5 – Ask your spouse what they need. If they need more affection from you, work on that. If they need to spend more time on work, let them do that. If they want to spend time with you, make sure you work them in no matter what. Sometimes just asking your spouse what they need is all that’s needed to tackle the underlying problems that might be plaguing your marriage… so don’t be afraid to directly ask your spouse for EXACTLY what they need.

6.) Marriage Tip #6 – Accept your partner’s flaws. Nobody is perfect… and you know, more than ANYONE, that your partner isn’t perfect either. And that’s okay. You have to learn to tolerate your spouse’s shortcomings because if you don’t, you will grow resentful of them.
To combat this, acknowledge that you aren’t perfect either and that your spouse is also accepting of your flaws. And that’s what’s beautiful about marriage – loving each other despite your may flaws!
If the flaw is so big that you simply can’t ignore it, then make sure you politely and openly address this with them and see if anything can be worked again. Again, don’t be afraid to directly communicate to your spouse how you feel.
