What You Have To Do To Save Your Marriage, According To Psychologists
When you look at the divorce rate, it can be easy to adopt a cynical view of love, but worry not! There are things every couple can do to significantly increase their odds of maintaining a long and happy marriage. Fortunately for the lovebirds out there, psychologists are now publicly revealing these secrets…
Just A Little Respect
Even at your lowest points, it is vital to maintain respect for your partner. Always remember to articulate your feelings in that moment rather than going for personal attacks.
Just like when it comes to your own self-esteem, making unnecessary comparisons can kill your pride in your relationship. No one is perfect – and that’s okay!
Keep It Tight
Staying healthy isn’t solely good for you; it’s also essential to maintaining a happy marriage! In addition to looking great, you’ll feel great (and so will your partner).
Bae Before Babies
While it is always important to keep an eye on your kids, make sure not to do so at the expense of your relationship with your significant other.
Forgive Their Flaws
Let’s face it, no one is the perfect partner. Everyone is bound to mess up, so when that happens, it’s important that you be able to roll with it.
Don’t Go Changin’
No matter how much they love you, you will never be able to change your partner. If you really love them, changing won’t be necessary anyways.
No Empty Threats
When in an argument, it’s very important that you not drop intense terms like “divorce” unless you’re actually willing to act on them.
Keep It Clean
No matter what, always try to keep your composure with your partner. Swearing at them or hitting below the belt can do nothing but harm.
Gossip With Care
Always be careful who you share negative details of your relationship with. When a well-meaning friend or family member hears it, they may be reluctant to support the relationship.
Speak Their Language
