Six Secrets To Make Your Marriage A Happy Marriage

Newlywed Groom Kisses a Bride Holding a Bouquet on Her Cheek

Marriage isn’t easy.  That being said, it’s also totally worth it if you and your partner are both willing to put the work in.  Recently, there was a study done of 10,000 couples in 110 different countries that found the secrets that are true across almost EVERY happy and successful marriage.

Whenever I hear of a couple that has been married longer than I have, I always ask them what their secret is.  Normally the man will say something like, “you have to learn to smile and nod a lot” or “learn to give up.” But there are 6 things that were common in every happy and successful married person that took this study.  They are:

1.  Mutual respect – I think this is common in ANY relationship from work to friendship, respect has to be the foundation.



2.  Deciding divorce is NOT an option – This was something my wife and I both agreed to before we were married.  We would never use this word as a threat.  If you said it, you meant it so we vowed to just never say it.  It wasn’t an option.



3.  Daily rituals – Whether it’s having coffee together every morning or watching the news at night, having something you do together every day is key.



4.  Spirituality.  Virtually all the couples believed in a higher power.



5.  Not worrying about sex – Worry about communication.  The rest will take care of itself.



6.  Putting your marriage before your kids.  If you make your marriage the priority . . . and don’t just focus 100% on your kids . . . it keeps your marriage strong.  Which is important for your kids AND you . . . kids do what they see.  So by loving your spouse, you’re also showing them how to love theirs.
