50 practical tips that will ensure you a happy and long married life

Although we enjoy laughing about the subject from time to time, married life and relationships can be quite difficult for men and women alike. Living together over time, raising children, dealing with crises and the need for support over the years are just some of the challenges each couple faces. Although many think that the formula for a perfect relationship is an unrealistic myth, or a matter so complex that no one has the ability to understand it, the reality is slightly different. There really is no formula for a perfect married life, and every relationship has disagreements, but if you follow the following 50 golden tips, your life together with your loved ones will be much better.

  3. Make time each week for a date or a shared pastime that will focus on a beloved and relaxing activity.
  4. Do not deprive your spouse of intimate recreation as punishment, it will only cause more serious damage to the relationship.
  5. Your priorities should be the children, the relationship and then the rest of the extended family.

  7. Do not let anyone interfere in your married life without your request, especially not parents and breads.

  9. Every day give each other a hug or a kiss.
  1. Do not hide secrets from each other.
  2. Set clear boundaries for your marriage and relationship life. It is important that you know what you can and cannot do together.
  3. Set aside your pride and ego during arguments. In any situation where there is a “winner” in an argument the relationship is harmed.
  4. Prepare or buy the favorite foods of your spouse.
  5. When your spouse is doing something they love do not criticize them for it, no matter how badly they do it.

  9. If you do exercise, do it together.

  4. Try to spend at least five minutes every day laughing together from a movie, TV show or some good jokes.
  5. Twice a year treat yourself to a special vacation or outing that will strengthen your marriage and relationship. Good times for such activities are your birthdays or wedding anniversaries.
  6. Be willing to make concessions for each other, this is an integral part of the relationship.
  7. Always listen to the advice you receive from your spouse.
  8. Do not be cynical and sarcastic, you never know when you will cross the border and hit the other side badly.
  9. Two of the most important actions in any relationship are forgiveness and giving up.

  2. There is nothing more important to a husband or wife than support from their spouses.

  4. Always consult with each other before making big decisions and steps.
  5. No matter how small or silly they are, be sure to support each other’s dreams.
  6. Do not compare your marriage to other people’s relationships – you are who you are and who they are.
  7. Never fight in front of other people and not in front of the children – manage your relationship privately.
  8. Do not raise arguments and behaviors from the past to leverage the present in your favor. You may “win” the current debate but it will be an empty victory.
