The way to a happy married life!

by - January 24, 2015


Last Christmas, one of my friends gave me this kraft poster (c/o Papemelroti) which talks about tips on how to have a happy marriage.



As a newlywed myself, I believe that this list is really great! In fact, I put it infront of our clothes cabinet so that we can read it once in a while.

Anyway, I just want to share a little fact about my new life. So far, for three months, I can proudly say that we have a blissful married life. Not that I am saying that we have a perfect one and everyone knows that there will never be one.  But I know this one is for forever. We might have our own share of problems as a couple but we face them together. We also fight and we know that it’s normal. But we make sure that after every quarrel we have, we say sorry to each other. Do I nag? All the time. But still, my husband has the patience to listen to all my “unlimited” sometimes “non-sense” naggings. With these, I can say that my husband is my bestfriend. In fact I believe that all the wives out there should have the same feelings also. As Father Benito told us during our wedding, “Hindi lang dapat kayo mag-asawa, dapat magbestfriend din kayo” 

Before I end this entry, I want to leave the list to you. BTW, my personal favorite is #3.

10 Sterling Tips for a Happy Marriage: 
  1. Love each other. Say “I love you” often and in different ways. Surprise each other with gifts of praise to show your love. Remember the love grows in an atmosphere of freedom and trust, not from restraint and obligation. Do things to keep your love and romance new and alive. Don’t take love for granted, ever.
  2. Listen objectively to each other as you would do to a friend. Give each other the right to disagree. You don’t want anyone to control your feelings so don’t try to own the feelings of the one you love.
  3. Never stop treating each other like sweethearts. Always do things to make the other one feel loved. Share the chores around the house. Work together in achieving your goals.
  4. Take care of each other. Put the other one first, but don’t neglect your own needs either. Do the things that show your interest in your partner’s needs, desires and problems.
  5. Look to each other for help. Don’t let your problems or concerns get out of hand and make you go opposite directions. You’re in this life together. Be thankful.
  6. Talk about things together the way you would talk to a friend. Absolutely refuse to say anything negative about your partner. Share your most important secrets and never betray the secrets of your partner. Don’t ever give up on your love.
  7. Settle the fact that you’ve made your choice and you’re no longer looking for anyone else. Don’t flirt. Think of the consequences. Don’t consider it.
  8. Be in agreement about how your money is spent. Talk about how to manage your finances.
  9. When in doubt, ask yourself how you would want to be treated and then act accordingly. If you’ve argued, never go to sleep without a resolution.
  10. Add humor into your daily life. Have fun!
     Hope everyone can catch a thing or two from this list. Also, always remember STAY IN LOVE!

  3. I agree, stay in love and be patient always. Sometimes the overwhelming daily tasks may lead us to forget about our partner but don't sleep without talking and laughing :) Great reminder sis.
