3 Ways to Keep your Marriage Happy

3 Ways to Keep your Marriage Happy

I am married to the ONLY boyfriend I ever had. A lot of our friends and family say they want the perfect marriage like we have…NEWS FLASH — we do not have a perfect marriage. Marriage takes work, it takes trying, it takes communication.

Sometimes I feel like the world’s worst wife. I don’t always keep a clean house, I don’t always cook, I sometimes “forget” to hug or kiss him goodbye.. I really try not to. Sometimes after I get home from work I put on the ugliest pj’s I can find and crawl into bed with Netflix. Sometimes I get angry. Sometimes we don’t even go to bed at the same time, this one bothers me the most because I feel like we need that quiet time together each night. That time to simply talk without kids interrupting or social media, the time for just us.

3 Ways to Keep your Marriage Happy

It is OK to not do any of the above at times but remember your husband is happiest when his wife is happy and joyful. Who honestly wants to live with a crabby person who makes you feel like you can never do anything right?

1.Encourage Him

You need to uplift and encourage him. Say nice things about him to your friends and family more often, I am not saying to lie if this isn’t true!

2.Give Him what he needs

He has needs that should be met.. this means to not always say NO to his sexual needs.

3. Date Nights

Try to plan date nights, we do regular date nights once a week and sometimes more. Communicate with him, send a text or an email during the day just to say I love you. If you are home before him plan a nice dinner, freshen up and give him your undivided attention.

I am a firm believer of a weekly date night. Date nights do not always have to cost money either! You could go for a walk downtown to window shop or even curl up at home with a movie. Even making dinner together is an option. There are so many things you can do together, be creative!

The happier you keep your spouse, the better wife you will feel like you are.

Being married is the best thing I have ever done, I love being married to my best friend and love of my life! ❤
