Revealed - The Secrets to a Happy Marriage

Every couple's wish is to have a happy marriage. Unfortunately, this is not the case in most homes. As the saying goes, marriage is not a bed of roses. This does not mean that being married will result in an unhappy life. Any couple can have a great and happy marriage if they are determined to. The majority of relationship challenges start when one or both parties neglect their duties. Communication is the most important contributor to a happy marriage. But according to relationship experts, there is more. The following secrets will ensure you have a great life in marriage:

You Will Not Always Be Happy

Couples need to understand that they will not always be happy. It's okay to go through tough times together. Focus on dealing with the challenges together and bring back the happy times to your marriage. Most couples end up losing their marriages when they start facing challenges without knowing that they will come to an end sooner or later. Unfortunately, others fail to try harder in coming up with solutions to challenges. If the hard times can be avoided through planning and better financial management, it is advisable to take this step.

Keep Your Family Secrets

Many marriages fail due to incorrect advice from other people on how to run their homes. Not everyone will understand your spouse more than you do. Only you two know how to solve your differences and challenges. A crisis does not mean that your marriage is over. Professional advice can also be sought in matters beyond you. Despite this, matters involving domestic violence should be brought to light early enough and the right help should be sought.

There is No Better Person Out There

Marriages start failing when we start comparing our spouses with other people. Your partner is not perfect and neither are you. We need to accept our partners for who they are so long as they are dependable, understanding, and non-violent. If you met your partner at a dating site like Happymatches as your sugar daddy but later resolved to settle down together, it is important that you stop looking for other partners. You could also try talking to your spouse about what you are uncomfortable with. The couple should always take each other's feelings into consideration before acting and be ready to compromise for their partner's sake.

Be Independent

Find a way to make your life happy individually by engaging in hobbies and being around people that value you. Husbands and wives need to find some alone time where they can unwind and re-establish their sense of self-being. This personal space enables them to freely think and eventually contribute to the family. Being away for a while also rekindles the love because the spouses miss each other and happiness is revived when you are together.

Communication is Key

Without proper communication, marriages are doomed to fail. Use words or non-verbal cues that are best understood by your spouse. Always communicate when you are pleased or displeased by your spouse. Most people opt to keep quiet when they are not happy or attack their partner with words even without reasoning. The other person has their side of the story and would like to dialogue with you. This will help your marriage grow because you will understand each other better and how best to treat one another.

Give a Listening Ear

Everyone wants to be listened to. This is the same case for spouses. Most women are talkative compared to men, but this does not mean that women cannot be good listeners. Give your partner time to talk about their long day at work, achievements, and disappointments. Even if you do not offer a solution, a listening ear goes a long way in solving the challenge. The same applies whenever you talk on the phone or during a date. Let the other person speak so that they can feel happy. If they never get a listening ear, they could start looking elsewhere, especially when they want sympathy or a shoulder to lean on.


A happy marriage is easy to maintain if both partners are willing to contribute positively. This means that solutions come from both of you instead of just one person. It also shows that you are concerned about making the marriage a success, which is appreciated by the other person.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
