As a married couple, they should both be responsible in doing everything for their marriage to last. If they found out that they are not compatible with each other or they often have misunderstanding, they find some ways to go about solving these issues. They canít just file for a divorce immediately just because it is legal. They should discover the simple secrets which will make them happy and will make their marriage last for a long, long time. Although they are known to be secrets, they can easily be discovered and done because they are among the very simple things that most people just take for granted.
Making more compliments to each other rather than criticism is the first one. This is not something that is impossible to do; in fact it is very easy. A couple should give more emphasis on the right and good things that they have rather than looking at what was wrongly done. When one of them is with his/ her friends, he/ she should talk about the positive things about his/ her spouse instead of the negative ones. Each of them should learn to appreciate the effort that the other exerted to make the other one happy. This is really an effective and helpful thing that married couples should take into consideration for their marriage to last.
Another secret that a couple should know is making enough time for both of them. Most married couples do not spend time together like what they used to do when they were still dating especially of they already have kids. This should not be the case. Even if a couple is very busy with their jobs and taking care of their kids, they should somehow make time for the two of them. This will make things easier for them knowing that marriage is not always a bed of roses; it can sometimes be a bed of thorns that can really hurt badly. Along the way, a couple will experience a lot of problems.
Respecting each otherís privacy is also important. Privacy is always there even if a couple is already married. There are times wherein his/ her spouse needs to be alone and spend some quite time with himself/ herself. Saying sweet and nice word to each other is another secret that is often taken for granted. No matter how long a couple has been married, they should still have do this and even surprise each other with simple but wonderful gifts. And most importantly, they should never keep any secrets from each other.
If a couple really wants to make their marriage last, they should never think of divorce or even mention such word out of anger and sadness. Talk about things accordingly and constantly communicate. Never start an argument if itís not worth it and they should never compare their marriage to other marriages. These things are just some the very simple and little things that can help in preventing a marriage to fall apart and end up in filing for a divorce.
