A few weeks ago, I posted a case study of my personal story on how I enjoyed and my ways of maintaining a marriage and it amazed me how many questions I have received from my fans as regards that post.
If you are among those that asked the question, then stay glued to the end of this post, because I will not only answer all the questions you asked; but I will show you how you are going to replicate the same steps I took to maintain your marriage too.
This article is helpful not only to those that have asked the questions but to all of you who have one time or the other asked a question concerning taking his or her marriage to another level.
One of the things you have to bear in mind is that nothing good comes easy. It may not be very easy for you to start having results, but definitely, you will see changes when you make up your mind about it.
From my article, you should know that marriage requires nurturing, building, and praying to make it work the way you want it.
What are the differences between having a happy marriage and maintaining a marriage?
Firstly let’s look at the definition of a happy marriage.
QUESTION ONE ON MAINTAINING A MARRIAGE
What is a happy marriage?
When marriage is said to be a happy one, it simply means that the couples involved are vehemently happy with how their marriage or relationship is moving.
At that point which is usually the early stage of the marriage; there is a strong presence of love, good communication, joy and commitment between the two partners. Probably, there is no other thing that is coming between the love the two couples shared together. Couples have much time to enjoy themselves.
However, a time will come in the life of couples, when there will be an increase in responsibility. Maybe the children start coming and there is also needs to make ends meet.
What do you think will happen at that moment? Of course, there will be divided attention. The times spent together will be divided among so many other things and couples are left with limited time to relax and enjoy themselves.
Here are the issues
That is where the issue of maintaining a marriage comes in. There is every need that couples should take care of those extra responsibilities and still take care of their homes without compromising anyone of them.
The difference between the two is while having a happy marriage may come without the couples working so much about it, the couple needs to do some extra works to make sure that the happiness in their marriage is maintained and not allowed to depreciate.
QUESTION TWO ON MAINTAINING A MARRIAGE
What are the steps couples must take to maintain a Marriage?
There are many steps a couple could use if they determined to make their love strong.
Learning what to do to improve a marriage, nurturing, and having fun are the things that you need to help you strengthen your marriage.
Every happily married couple makes “explicit agreements” on how they will move forward every day because they are aware that it is their responsibility to make their marriage a happy one.
