Tips For A Happy Wedding Life

25 Nov
 
If you have been married for a while and have settled into life with your parents, in-laws, friends etc, you must be thinking that the job is done and now it’s a smooth road ahead. Unfortunately, the truth is exactly the opposite. But the good news is that now you are a team and all the potholes that you encounter on this bumpy road will not have to be faced by you alone – your partner is going to be there with you. If you are trying your best and making an honest attempt at retaining the charm of your marriage, following these 10 rules will help you achieve your goal. 


DON’T COCOON YOURSELF 
Sometimes love is such a whirlwind of crazy joy that you forget that there are other people, things and activities in the world besides the two of you. While this is understandable, you have to have outlets, otherwise you’ll drive each other bonkers. Before you met your partner, you were always getting together with your group of friends, hanging out with your family, putting in extra time at the office or taking a few classes to keep expanding your brain. Don’t stop. Your marriage will be a lot more interesting if you keep on being the fascinating person you were before you two met. You’ll also have a lot more to talk about over dinner. 

MARRIED LIFE ISN’T EVERYTHING 

Life becomes awfully narrow when your social life revolves exclusively around other couples. So once you’re wed, keep mixing things up: his friends and your friends, work friends and school friends, neighbours and family, old friends and brand-new acquaintances, singletons and smug marrieds, parents of twins and the child-free. 

DON’T WORRY. YOU’VE STILL GOT IT 

When you were single, you met cute guys/ girls everywhere – at the laundry, on the subway, at funerals. Once you’re hitched, it’s easy to miss the buzz of universal admiring attention. But don’t worry, you still have the power. You’ve just got to take it on faith instead flirting with every other cute person. 

RESPECT YOUR IN-LAWS 

Your in-laws may be incredible bores, gossipy and nosy, or tacky and embarrassing. Whatever type you’ve inherited, welcome them with open arms whenever you see them. No matter what you think of them, remember that they are responsible for raising your terrific partner. Even if you really believe that your partner only turned out normal due to some sort of divine intervention, give them the credit. 

DON’T COMPARE 

There will always be a couple that is funnier, more attractive, sexier, wealthier, nicer, hipper, healthier, smarter, more successful, and more glamourous than you two. But if you are constantly comparing yourself to other couples, you will miss out on enjoying how happy you are just being yourselves. 

FIGHT A CLEAN FIGHT 

When you were dating and you got into a spat you may have found that slamming doors, crying and racing back to your apartment were effective tools in winning an argument. Your partner would be so lost without you that they would come running over and say sorry. Sadly, the tactic is not going to work now that you are married and living together. You’re a lot better off staying calm and staying put to solve a tiff. 

BE A TEAM 

While you are both successful, independent people, don’t forget to cheer each other on, support each other’s crazy dreams, and encourage each other to live your best lives. If he’s up for a promotion, become best friends with his boss at the office party. If she’s always been interested in Greek history, take her there to see it all. Lousy day for your partner? Treat him/ her and their friends to an after-work gripe session at a local pizza corner. 

BE FABULOUS 

Be comfortable being unconventional, glamourous or unique. Let your hair down. You’ve found someone who loves you, warts and all, so be the marvelous off-beat person that your partner fell in love with and continue to make an attempt to better yourself for them. 

BE ROMANTIC 

Sounds crazy but sometimes it’s easy to forget what got you married in the first place. Don’t stop being romantic, sexy, creative, impulsive, spontaneous and crazy in love now. Take salsa lessons, get tickets for a live concert and go for a date. Most important, don’t ever forget the power of an unexpected drop-everything smooch. 

BE THANKFUL FOR YOUR PARTNER 

There are times when married life will make you think back to your sensational single days with longing and alarm. When the love of your life is driving you bananas, it is time to remember how sexy/ suave/ smart/ sensitive your partner was the night you first decided that they are ‘the one’. Remember how lucky you are to have someone who puts up with all of your nonsense. If through everything, you remember to be grateful for landing the most wonderful person on the planet, your marriage will reflect that, every day.

 DON’T FORGET TO COMPLIMENT YOUR PARTNER
If you have been married for long, don’t take each other for granted. Showing your love, Complimenting on a new dress or looks of your partner keeps your marriage fresh.Surprise your partner by giving him/her a gift.  Send a bouquet of roses. Make your spouse feel appreciated.

SPEND THE TIME TOGETHER,JUST THE TWO OF YOU
 Take weekend breaks to spend some quality time with each other. Switch your phone off and listen to what your partner has to say or share with you.

ALWAYS TRY TO END YOUR DAY WITH A KISS AND A SWEET HUG!!!
