“The highest prize in a world of men is the most beautiful woman available on your arm and living there in her heart loyal to you.” —Norman Mailer

Marriage is a commitment and responsibility. However, the present young generation don’t take marriage seriously and some of them don’t show keen interest in it. They are keen to explore live-in relationships and other methods of relationship that provide temporary excitement with permanent pitfalls. They believe in short-term temptations than long-term happiness. There is a dramatic shift in the mindset of the people toward the institution of marriage globally.

Tips to Make Your Marriage Meaningful and Successful

“In a happy marriage it is the wife who provides the climate, the husband the landscape.” —Gerald Brenan

Marriage is for bravehearted, not for fainthearted. To lead a happy married life is easier said than done because marriage is a long-term relationship between two unknown people coming together with a commitment to lead a life together happily. Marriage requires adjustment from both partners. It involves emotional intelligence and interpersonal skills. It requires sacrifices from partners because life is unpredictable with full of peaks and valleys. Hence, there will be highs and lows in marital life. Just because of the lows, people must not seek divorce to end their relationships forever. Presently some married couple break their relations at the drop of a hat which is not a health trend. When marriage fails, children suffer emotionally since they don’t receive love and affection from their parents. When parents want children to grow in a healthy environment they must lead by example by looking at similarities, not differences.

Minor differences between partners is a healthy sign that they enjoy their individuality and respect each other. Remember, marriage is not merely an action between the sheets. It is something beyond your bed.


“What counts in making a happy marriage is not so much how compatible you are but how you deal with incompatibility.” —Leo Tolstoy

Most young people think marriage as a physical attraction and relationship. In fact, physical attraction stays only for some time. What holds good ultimately is emotional and mental satisfaction. When wife and husband understand each other, there will be mental and spiritual unification leading to everlasting inner peace and happiness.

When you want to be successful in all spheres of life, you must have a spouse who can understand you well and stand by you through thick and thin. Hence, follow the tips to achieve better understanding and make your marriage work successfully to lead a happy life.

Life is great!
