One of the keys to having a happy life is having a happy marriage. Most people get married at some point in their life, however, not all marriages turn out to be happy ones.

This can cause a lot of stress and emotional turmoil, which can lead to great unhappiness for both parties. So, in this article, we will be covering a few simple tips that will help you to have a significantly happier marriage and ensure that you have an amazing life.

Never Stop Courting

The first tip is that you should never stop courting your wife. Unfortunately, many guys think that once they get married, they no longer need to court their wife. This is a huge mistake which often leads to a wife that feels unloved and unappreciated. Love and laziness do not work well together, so make sure to keep the romance alive. Continue doing all the things you did before she became your wife.

Constantly Protect Your Heart

Another tip is that you have to constantly protect your own heart. Unfortunately, cheating is very common and usually occurs when you don’t protect your own heart.

It is essential that you have a space in your heart that is only reserved for your spouse and you must not allow any other person to enter that space. This will insure that you remain faithful to your spouse which will definitely make both of you very happy.


Be Flexible with Each Other As You Change in Time

It is important to know that as the years pass, both you and your wife will change. You won’t be the same person as you age and it is important that you take the time to get to know each other over and over. While doing so, you can fall in love over and over which will keep your marriage fresh and unbreakable.


Keep Focusing on the Positives in One Another

Next, as the years pass and you get to see both the good and bad in your spouse, it is essential that you focus on her or his good aspects. Whatever you focus on expands, so instead of focusing on the faults, focus on the many good traits. This will insure that you treat your spouse with love and respect that only grows with time.

Regularly Allow One Another Space

Another tip is that you need to also learn to give your spouse space. It is essential that you don’t smother one another or constantly request his or her presence and attention. Most people need time alone to nurture and discover themselves, so make sure that you allow your spouse to do just that.


Be Present and Communicate Clearly and Kindly

In addition to focusing on your spouse, you also need to be present in your relationship with him or her and properly communicate. This can be difficult for many people, however, good communication skills can be learned.


Always Be Truthful and Transparent

You also must commit to be truthful and transparent which is a great way to build love and trust in your marriage. The more that your spouse trusts you, the happier you both will become.

In closing, we have just looked at a few tips to help you have a happy marriage. It does take effort, but the benefits and rewards will last a lifetime.

    In my personal life, I have had a long successful marriage and have remarried following my husband's death.  I have had three sons and helped raise a niece for three years and have seven grandchildren.  I have loved spending time with them as they were growing up.

    I also enjoy getting together with family and friends, ATVing in the mountains, photography, hiking, and traveling. I also enjoy reading, creating art, decorating, and serving others by volunteering. 

    Assisting couples in rebuilding their marriages has been so rewarding as I've had the privilege of seeing hundreds of couples reunite and get back to being positively connected to one another. 

    I also work with personal development and those who want to move forward by making positive improvements such as goal setting, self-care, boundaries, behavioral improvements, overcoming procrastination, conflict management, etc.
