There are three tips on marriage that can help keep you on the road of happiness instead of the road of destruction and destruction. These three tips are always keep open communication, always be truthful, and always try to have understanding for one another.
The lack of communication is commonly agreed upon as the number one issue to cause trouble in marriage. You must keep an open line of communication. If you do not communicate how else are you going to stay connected? That connection, that intimate, is critical in keeping a marriage happy and healthy.
Communication, to build intelligence, must be honest. So build your marriage on a foundation of truth. Marriages that are built on an unhealthy foundation of lies and deceit will do as all weak foundations do, they ever crumble. Even when it is hard to be honest with your spouse those are the times that it is most critical to stand on truth.
Honest communication breeds understanding. Sincere understanding for your spouse can go a long way. It may be awkward sometimes, at first, but try to put yourself in your spouse's shoes in every situation. Sometimes we get so shortsighted that we do not see any other sacrifice other than our own. Marriage is not a competition. It should be equal commitment from both individuals, equal sacrifice, and equal understanding.
If you are unhappy in a marriage, try implementing these three suggestions. Communication, honesty, and understanding just may change your marriage for the better and keep you from being unhappy in a marriage.
