10 things happily married couples do:
Respect is one of the pivotal aspects of any relationship. It means that you and your partner are and will be equals. No one stands above the other. Respect and mutual understanding are crucial to a marriage’s success, as it often ranks higher than love to some.
This is obvious, after all, love can’t sustain it all. But it can be hard to quantify, especially as parents when roles change and so does the responsibility. So, what really matters when it comes to a happy marriage? Its definitely not just one thing and so here are 10 things happily married couples do:
1. Communication Is The Key
Communicating is a form of a bond. Having a real conversation, at least once a day is not only enough but eye-opening. Even if is to wipe away any form of misunderstanding. If somethings are bothering you, or have an objection to something your partner is doing, please talk.
Strike up a conversation. Nagging or complaining or only seeing the faults in them wouldn’t help. Appreciate them for the positives. Keeping your partner in the loop, about your life and daily activities. Leave nothing unsaid.
2. Find common interest
Sharing some common interests, with your partner is a sign of compatibility. Happier couples tend to enjoy each other’s company even if they aren’t doing anything specific.
You may not be fond of his choices (FIFA), or he may not enjoy tv Gossip Girl with you, but there are certain things that you two can find to do together.
Let’s take horror movies as an example. You guys can watch movies together that you always found challenging in other genres. Or, start cooking. Take small steps, and you two can cook a beautiful meal together.
3. Spend time together
Life is fast-paced, it is hard to find spare time for self. Why don’t you take at least half an hour from your schedule, and just chill together? You can meet up for lunch, or go for a small walk.
On the weekends try to do something different. For instance, go and garden. Even if you are not interested in it, you can always sit back, and enjoy each other’s company under the sky.
4. They cuddle
Going to bed at the same time doesn’t always have to mean that you’re going to have sex. You can just lie down with your partner under the blanket and cuddle. A sense of security in you comes from the body odor of your partner. Therefore, cuddling is a special place in a healthy relationship.
5. Touch: Hug and Peck
For some, this may sound like a not so important thing to do every day but as a matter of fact, is actually a powerful medicine to keep you two happy.
Before leaving for work, and after coming back home, commit to bear hugs and kisses. Make this a habit. Happy couples usually plant kisses and hang on their partners whenever they feel like.
6. They Express Everyday
Expressing “I Love You” all the time may seem weird to you. Uttering these magical words twice a day is sufficient, especially before hitting the sack. You and your partner know how much you care and love each other, that’s great yet reconfirming is necessary.
7. A Sense Of Humor
Most common reason to fall in love is if they make you laugh. He cracks the silliest of jokes at unexpected times and you can’t control laughing. And for hours! laughing, in general, has a positive impact on a relationship.
Imagine life surrounded by serious people. And laughing even at the lamest jokes can increase the level of love and intimacy between the two of you.
8. Switch Off Their Phones
Most of your time is spent out of the home. The other time is spent doing random work, including eating and sleeping. So whatever leftover time you have, utilize it for each other. Stop browsing in all respects, and hit the power button. Be connected with your partner face to face. It’s going to be amazing!
9. They Believe In PDA
Happy couples like PDA i.e Public Display of Affection. Holding hands or just a random hugs while waiting on the signals, kisses on the cheeks. Just a simple touch is enough to display your affectionate and comfortable with one another.
10. See Futures Together
You have deep and meaningful conversations on future plans for your lives together. Have customs of planning everything together.
You two are a team, so work like one. Whether it is related to the children, your sex life, your career, or your plans for buying a house. Planning enriches your journey together.
Happy couples never share the same character. They recognize their differences and understand them.
