If you ask some of the older generation to reflect on a time in their lives when they were at their happiest, many of them will turn around and tell you, that it was their wedding day. It was a day that they got to say their vows and announce to the whole world, their love for another person. For the bride, she got to wear an amazing wedding dress that turned everyone’s head when she walked down the aisle. There was never a day before this or a day after this, when she looked so beautiful, and the groom looked pretty good too.
Expect The Unexpected.
There is still some scepticism towards the institution of marriage, but there are many success stories of people being together 40 to 50 years after the event, and the relationship is still going strong. There are many couples out there who have yet to experience their wedding day, and for many they have the wedding day jitters and they are not quite sure what to expect. They worry about the future and whether or not they will still be together in 10 years from that point. Thankfully, there are many Byron Bay weddings that have gone on to be complete success stories. Many people wonder what the secrets are to a successful marriage, and we will explore some of those here today.
- It’s okay to argue once in a while – All married couples argue and anyone else that tells you otherwise, is lying. It is important to get your frustrations out into the open air and to let your partner know what is upsetting you. Only then, can you both talk about the reasons for this frustration and how to fix it. Couples that have been together for many, many years have attested to the need to blow off some steam once in a while to clear the air.
- Focus on the strengths – Many couples only look for the weaknesses in the relationship, when it is the strengths that really matter. Sometimes, as couples, we set our expectations too high and many of us want to have a relationship like the ones that we see in the movies. These are not real and the sooner you realise that, the better. Playing off each other’s strengths and trying to get around the weaknesses, is the secret to any long-term successful relationship, especially in marriage.
- Do things together – Whenever possible, you should always try to set aside some time to do something together that you both enjoy. However, there are times when your partner needs some space and a little time to themselves. This is why you should always have your friends with you throughout your whole life. When you need a little break, you can spend some time with your friends and nobody is going to get upset.
Everyone is different, and while some suggestions will work for some, other suggestions will work for others. It’s all about trying to find what works for both of you and then sticking to that. Nobody said marriage was easy, and it is something that you have to work at, and put in a lot of time and effort.
