My husband and I have had thirty-one happy anniversaries and expect it to be a lot more. How you wonder did we manager to stay together for so many years? It’s not easy in today’s world of divorces, but a happy marriage takes work, but it‘s well-worth the effort. Here are ways Howard and I have found to keep our marriage happy and healthy. It will work for you both too. [Read more…]
Ever have those days you wish you weren’t married? Of course! We all do. On those days, you find it hard to believe that you allowed yourself to stoop this low. Or you might think you made the wrong decision all those years (or months ago). Perhaps it’s time to take a day for you. Find some “you” time.
If you’ve ever been in a relationship, then you know the key to success is compromise. A relationship involves two people and for it to be successful, both
people have to be happy. Sounds easy enough, right? Then why is it that so many relationships fall apart just because one person isn’t willing to give a little? In this modern day, have people become so groomed to be independent that it’s too hard to meet someone half way?
When you have two people who are stubborn, strong-willed, or overly independent, the idea of compromise is as alien as little green men. The term “my way or the highway” must be completely forgotten to have anything resembling a relationship, or at least, to have one that works. I know it’s a lot easier to just walk away from a relationship when the other person makes you mad, than to actually try and work things out, but when you know you have something good, it’d be stupid to just throw it away. This can be especially difficult if you keep giving in while your partner keeps on getting his or her way. If you keep that up, you’ll just keep bending until you break. You both have to agree to reach a compromise that you both can live with.
The easiest way to reach a compromise is to look at the big picture. What do you really want and what does the other person really want? Sit down and talk to
your partner about what you both want and how you can find a middle ground that will make you both happy. I know that sounds pretty simple, but the hardest part about this is actually doing it. Relationships can be a headache and you may find yourself ready to throw in the towel more than a few times, but if you stick with it, you may just find that it’s worth it in the end.
It can be very difficult to be separated from your loved one by a long distance. Maintaining romance in a long distance relationship is never easy, but it can be done. There are a few things you can do to make sure that the romance and passion in your relationship does not die and that your relationship continues to grow stronger, even with the distance between you.
