More often than not, it’s coming from a good place. Listening to advice from people who have a successful marriage is a great way of making yours work.
- Don’t listen to everyone – In the aforementioned point, it says to listen to marriage advice. This point isn’t meant to contradict it. Rather, some advice might work well for other people but may not be applicable or may not work well for your marriage. Listen to your heart if it says that this advice isn’t for you.
- Dates aren’t off the table – With marriage, a whole new set of challenges come in. Jobs, children and so on can all get in the way of putting your spouse first. Make time for dates so that your spouse and you can get some alone time. Marriage doesn’t mean that you stop dating.
- Learn to let things go – No one is perfect. There will be times when your partner will do something that will drive you up the wall in frustration. When this happens, ask yourself if this will be a problem in an hour, a week, a month and so on. Take a bit of time to calm down and really think it over before you confront your spouse about it.
