One important thing to know about having  a happy marriage is that it is not a man only or woman only affair, both of you must be involved and committed in making it happen.
So what exactly is  it that makes a marriage strong​ you may ask? It is no rocket science, but just love, understanding and learning.
Have a positive mind about your marriage



Always have a positive mind about your marriage. From the very beginning of your marriage, make up your mind how committed you want to be in your marriage. This will make you to always be in the repairing end instead of destroying end. You already knew that you want the marriage to be a happy and long lasting one, so what ever your spouse does, you simply call it a mistake, and immediately look for a way to fix it, because you know you are committed to this marriage. Just keep your mind in your main goal which is to have a happy and strong marriage.



Increase in emotional intimacy



Emotional intimacy is imperative in making your marriage successful. It is simply a sense of closeness with your spouse. When there is an emotional intimacy in marriage, there is closeness, there is more cuddling, more kissing, more communication between you and your spouse. Couple are found sharing more moments alone, may be discussing about their love for each other. If there is no time for both you and your spouse to talk, then try and create that time, it will help to bring back the good times.



See your spouse as your friend



It is better when you see your spouse as your friend instead of a husband or a wife. This will give you the ability to share more with him or her. Seeing yourselves as husband and wife make it look as if one person is above the other.



Communication is very vital – Communication between you and your spouse is very important. This simply means the ability to share feelings together. Always have time you discuss with your spouse about how to move your marriage forward. Looking at the things you have done so far, think about the mistakes you have made so far and plan how to correct it and move forward.
Increase your emotional bank account-



I decided to add this because it is almost the worst enemy to having a happy and strong marriage. Most at times, the things that brings discord in marriage are those little promises we made to our spouse that we did not fulfill or may be we forgot to execute them. In my own marriage, I realized that I made promises that I did not fulfill, so when I made a new promise, my wife will not believe me. Until I learn how to fulfill my promises, my wife refused to trust in me.
Learn how to forgive



Another way to have a happy and strong marriage is to learn how to forgive your spouse when he or she offends you. Many people fine it hard to say you did something bad to me but I have forgiven you. Since marriage is the coming together of different people from different backgrounds there is bound to be squabbles, but the ability to forgive and forget will make you to keep moving as one.



I am sure these points will help you so much to get your marriage back and happy again.




Things you must know about having a happy marriage

In that ceremony, the master of the ceremony asked one wonderful question that made me to change my views concerning marriage. He asked “ If by one reason or the other all the marriages are dissolved for one week, and people were asked to start the marriage again; how many people will want to go back to their first spouse” I was so surprised that 80% did not raise there hand. But that was not the reason why they got into the marriage at first. There initial plans were to have a very successful and happy family, but here they are at the wrong side of marriage, believing that one day it will end may be in divorce or whatever way,

IS it possible to have a happy marriage? You may ask! My answer is yes. It is very possible when you know the recipes of and how to apply it to your own marriage. If you are already experiencing happiness in your marriage, then you are simply enjoying your own heaven on this earth. However you can still make it to happen in your own marriage if you are not experiencing it already.
