Have patience, that's one of the things I value about my spouse, he doesn't get impatient when I'm slow getting ready, takes the pressure off and makes me want to please him by getting ready efficiently. However, the NUMBER ONE tip is: don't be concerned with who's wrong and who's right, be concerned with understanding the other person's point of view and why they are upset. Why would I want to attack the man I love and make him feel badly for making a mistake, I don't want him to do that to me, so I don't do it to him. This really promotes excellent communication, which like CJ said, is extremely important in a marriage. Always make the bed in the morning, it starts the day right and ends the evening on a peaceful note. Oh, and when you go to bed, tell each other your favorite thing about your day.

Don't sweat the small stuff! Every single day, think of something that he/she does that makes you happy. Even when you're mad. If you are grateful for what you have that's good, more good will come to you.

I married my Best Friend. We know everything about one another, wrongs and rights and we do not have to pretend who we are. We enjoy each other's company. No lies, no jealousy, Who better to have in your life as a partner. Marriage is to work together as 1. You have to have a tough team mate. Loyalty, Respect...ETC.
The love just does not go away after the euphoric effect wears off. You have a foundation and that is Your friendship / partnership. I can say I have unconditional love for my husband and he for me.
It's a beautiful thing.. You just have to be yourself and start it the right way.. Agree not to always agree because that is ok.. We are all different.. Are some things REALLY worth arguing over?
If You have a problem, I promise it is something you CAN work out. We are all human..

COMMUNICATE WITH EACH OTHER, EVEN IF IT MEANS ARGUING OCCASIONALLY. Bottling up your emotions only leads to resentment which is toxic to your marriage.

Don't get married at all !!!! I waited till i was 27 did all the right things .Gave my wife the choice to be a stay at home mom for seventeen years which most mothers would kill to do.She went back to college. Had 3 kids one has special needs. She got involved with some younger people , came home asked me what a MILF was stole all my savings 72 grand .Ruined my Credit .The Topper !!!!!!! She left me with the Kids ,I lost my job .to stay with the special needs child who is now 20 years old ! and i'm losing everything i worked for.My Kids went from all honor roll to failing .She comes around once or twice a year ! But does not see the children.You do not have to be married to have a relationship ! I even wrote DR.PHIL three times and he wouldn't help me. GOOD LUCK !!!!!!!

i'm glad the kids are with you. sounds like they need you. hang in there...don't think the institution of marriage is the problem though. the right woman (or even a normal woman) would NOT do that.

I agree, only a cold, selfish woman would leave her kids! You may have lost your job and your good credit, but don't lose heart you haven't lost your pride, you should be very proud of yourself doing what so many others would have cowered away from!

Marry your best friend. Someone you can enjoy life with long after the initial excitement is over and that will end. I married my best friend 20yrs ago and it justs get better everyday! And I only knew him for 6 months before we got married!

My father did that, marrying a woman he only knew for 6 months, and she ended up being a gold digger. She gets his dough and blows, after putting on a poor helpless old lady act to a dummy local judge so my father has to keep supporting her as she travels to Muslim countries supporting the ENEMIES!

Be CAREFUL if you do that marrying soon after meeting your future mate! Kauble07 got lucky!

Married your best friend, one that known u inside out and likewise, that way u know they likes and dislike, u can talk school days about and always treat your spouse like if u now getting to know him/her u remember that time when u wanted to ask for a date but did not know how to, and the glow u always show when they near. Don't ever forget to Love, Respect, Communicate, be Honesty at all times then comes TRUST.

If you are a man You have to prove and show the Wife that you can run everything, (LIKE) the washer, dryer Mop Broom, Shop-vac, and also wash dishes. It helps if you clean the home and keep a neat yard and don't throw everything around, and also have good manners and are not a drunk or mess around with other women and to top everything else You must not whisper from both ends in other company. When the Children come along You will have to Learn the to care for them, in every way, It would be great if you did not smoke. and then be sure after doing all of this you don't forget to give that sweet little thing your paycheck (each one) to manage your house and pleasure's (That she may allow you to have, if while your doing this, you do not every mouth off to her at any time, about any thing. That my friend is what it takes for the man to please his wife, and is the only way to do that . FOR THE WOMAN > She must not worry about this, and she will keep you forever during your LEARNING PERIOD

More important, it would be nice to throw a little humor into your lives! OLE GENO

Who taught YOU, or are you just a GENIUS?

well isn't that the way to go????
Report as
To answer May'scomment: While my intent respective to my answer to this question may have seemed to some as a joking type answer ( IN PART) IF you would care to weigh in all the facts, You don't have to be a GENIUS to be HONEST and CARE for another person You have to have COMMON SENSE. First WE as a people are only here on earth for a season. Our purpose to seek the companionship and TRUST that we have made the correct choice. Then once committed, WHILE IT IS THE GOAL TO BE TOGETHER FOREVER. THE ONLY THING MORE IMPORTANT IS: (Our children) There is no other reason for us, because we will be gone, It will be our children whom we should try to raise in every way we can to acchive a life better than our own.
Surely we may faulter at times but we should learn from these errors. So that our Children will be greater than we (MAY THINK) (WE) are. Marriage is a process of learning. Some do very well! and others dont.!!!! You should not use the word ( I ) too much and know that the word ( WE ) is what keeps the marriage together. 47 years of Marriage and the fact We are together doesn't make me right or wrong, But it surely made us both , How to make consession's from time to time.
A good test for problem solving is to set two chairs facing each other Spouse's set together Knee to Knee and nose to nose and stay that way and discuss the problem. and remain there like that until is it resolved. Speaking in a low voice. Not a Genius , Just 47 years of being nice and understanding .

#1 Both in a love relationship w/Jesus; #2 True love=personal sacrifice & hard work; #3 Commitment is a choice not a feeling (commitment=bailing is NON OPTIONAL; and YOU should always working toward being emotionally/mentally/spiritually healthy, so this can work); #4 Don't keep things hidden from the other; #5 Have close relationships outside the marriage, but guys w/guys and women w/women. You'll avoid a TON of potential heartbreak. PROTECT EACH OTHER and PROTECT THE RELATIONSHIP. And my Mom's best advice after 53 years of marriage: Be each other's biggest fan. There's enough people dogging your mate. You should always be on their side!

*Marry your best friend. Anything else and you will live to regret it.
*Take care of yourself 1st. Children and spouse second. It is IMPOSSIBLE to predict the future. At least you will be ready even if your spouse / kids become losers.
*If you start screaming and shouting then you already lost the argument.
*Some people were raised in a home where screaming and hitting are normal but that doesn't mean that you should be treated that way.
*Money is power. By giving your spouse free access to your money, that gives them power as well. Remember, you can always take it back if abused.
*With un-married couples the power is often balanced which prevents fights. Married with kids can cause a power shift, specially with only one income the fighting inevitably starts. If you have absolute control of the money, I guarantee you will have problems.
*Is it really that important to you that the county clerk sign that piece of paper? If you are truly happy together, will the signature of a government employee change anything?

Communication, patience and the liberal use of tongue-biting. Also, a rich imagination is a great tool for those times you mentally plan the murder of your spouse (and don't kid yourself - there will be days when you'll go there!). Finally, the ability to remember what about that person attracted you in the first place.
