Secrets of a successfull marriage

Be your spouse’s friend

Show interest in your mate’s life. Never be emotionally, mentally or physically abusive to your spouse. Show affection for your mate. Be kind, gentle and loving.

When you make a mistake, admit it. When your mate made a mistake, excuse him easily. If possible never go to sleep angry at each other.

Many of us treat our spouses in ways that we would never treat others. With others, we try to be polite, kind and patient. With our spouses, we often do not show these courtesies.

Good marriages require patience, kindness, humility, sacrifice, empathy, love, understanding, forgiveness and hard work. Following this principles should help any marriage to improve.

Always treat your spouse the way you would like to be treated. If you follow this rule, your marriage will have a much greater chance for success. If you discard this rule, failure is just around the corner.

The beauty of life does not depend on how happy you are, but on how happy others can be, because of you.

Trust is the basis and foundation of respect which ultimately forms the love. But trust is like virginity, once you lose it and that’s it.

Five simple rules to be happy: free your heart from hatred, free your mind from worries, live simply, give more, expect less
