Being married

22 Oct

Getting married was one of the best decisions of my life (touch wood). I’m truly blessed to have found a friend, guide and a true soulmate in my husband. He is exactly the kind of a man I always needed. Somebody as sober as me but with a completely wacky side as well. Together we are unstoppable. He’s always been very supportive and above all, he values my opinions. He’s more of a friend than a lover. This doesn’t mean that ours is a perfect marriage. Of course we have our fair share of disagreements but our marriage is perfect for US.

After spending a year as a married woman I’ve concluded that most of the marriages today fail not due to lack of love but due to lack of tolerance. Sometimes it is better to stay silent and let things go then to hold grudges and strain your relationship. Impatience and intolerance are two of the greatest factors that can sabotage any marriage. One must have a bigger heart and forgiving nature to have a successful marriage. Being married to somebody is a full-time job with no holidays but, trust me, it can have a lot of perks. The only condition is to stay honest and dedicated. Getting married is easy and so is staying married. What is difficult is to stay ‘happily’ married. I have discovered my secrets to a happy marriage. They are simple yet very effective. Love, mutual respect, understanding, care, trust and unbarred communication. What are your secrets? πŸ™‚
