It is easy to fall in love. But it is a lot harder to stay in love. Maintaining a happy marriage/relationship is the number one problem in the society and in the world today.
Today most relationships are troubled with conflict and have become a source of pain instead of love and happiness. We are seeing more breakups and divorces than marriages. More singles than couples. More short-term relationships than long-term commitments.
The problem is no one has taught us how to have an emotionally and physically fulfilling and meaningful relationship!
A happy marriage/relationship remains not only what most of us want, but what is actually best for us. Research shows us a lot of positive data associated with happy marriages/relationships. Happily married people have longer lives, fewer illnesses, and higher self-esteem, less stress, more economic stability, and happier children.
The best marriage/relationship for you is probably the one you are in right now! But, just like your body/job/home, your marriage also won’t stay healthy if you neglect it. The need is to devise a ‘wellness program’ to rejuvenate your marriage/relationship and to maintain it as the strong, loving relationship we all want it to be.
Few small tips:
- Listen more than you speak: We often are too keen to speak and forget to listen to the other person. Listening and not just hearing while preparing our answers. Listen to the words as well as feelings and emotions behind them. Then you will understand even that which is left unsaid.
- Ask more than you assume: We all have a tendency to assume the worst in any situation and about any person, which is usually not the case. So ask questions and get the truth rather than assuming and creating destructive illusions in your mind.
- Give more than you receive: We usually get into a relationship in the hope of getting…it maybe love, support, caring, financial stability anything. The other person also comes expecting the same, so no one receives anything as no one is thinking of giving. So both feel cheated. Rather concentrate on giving so both will receive.
