Have A Happy Marriage With These Quick Tips
Follow Your Bliss and His.......
"Take interest in what your partner is involved in, and continue to do things you like, so you'll stay interesting to each other," says Barbara Prescott, Ph.D., coauthor ofMy Heart Got Married and I Didn't Know It.-
Accept That He Will Not Be Perfect and Never Will Be
"Many marital problems simply have no solution," says Susan Page, author of Why Talking Is Not Enough: 8 Loving Actions That Will Transform Your Marriage. "Give up harping about the small issues and look for ways you can adapt, accept, and learn to live with what annoys you."
Don't Diss His Family
"Treat your in-laws with respect," says W. Bradford Wilcox, director of the National Marriage Project. "Building supportive relationships with family is crucial to a successful marriage."
Ditch The Bad Influences
It's great to have girls' nights and boys' nights out, but spend time with friends who have the best interests of your marriage at heart, Wilcox says (i.e., not your former roommate who pushes you to sext your ex).
Keep Things Hot
"Be affectionate and have sex to keep the passion alive," says Michele Weiner-Davis, author of The Sex-Starved Marriage. You'll get along a lot better if you're getting it on regularly.
