Marriage Survival

Submitted by ub on Mon, 08/19/2019 - 07:42

My Godson has decided to get married, therefore since I've been there and seen that, I decided to publish the following advice.

Do not complain about food when your spouse is the cook.
Never start the day to scold or complain.
The lack of will to discuss something does not mean that you agree with that.
There is no end to how much you can love someone if you allow yourself.
Never decide to divorce when you have premenstrual syndrome (or flu or time lag).
If this question comes up, does this make me look fat? The answer is no.
Express gratitude often.
Generosity can be the key to all happiness.
Admit your defects. They are obvious anyway.
Most of your fights are living proof of your immaturity. The sooner you grow, the happier you will be.
When you think you have tried everything, you should know that you have not.
Clean is a relative term.
Give up all hope of being perfectly understood.
Being right will finally lose its appeal.
Many of the things you fight hard for will not prove worthwhile.
Your definition of sexy will change over time. New definition: husband going out in the rain to slam the door.
Be the first to apologize. Really. It is not as painful as it seems.
Pay more attention to what you are doing to make things go wrong and pay less attention to what your spouse is doing.
When your spouse's behavior is open to interpretation, give the highest reason.
It is an idiot to stay up late arguing about being too tired to have sex.
Forget the nonsense of not going to bed angry. Sleep a little. Things are likely to look different in the morning.
When people say marriage is difficult, believe them.
If you are going to complain about something, come to the table with a suggested alternative.
Hate is perfectly normal given the circumstances. Don't panic or take it too seriously.
Do not fool yourself thinking that you have all the time in the world.
Don't underestimate how irritating your spouse's mildly irritating behaviors will be over time.
If you want something, recognize that it is your job to ask for it.
The louder your spouse shouts, the calmer and calmer you need to be.
Disappointment is inevitable. Life becomes much easier once you accept this.
There are no guaranteed divorce-proof movements. All any of us can do is be a spouse would be silly if she left.
Sometimes you will do your unfair part. It is not worth complaining.
Always accept apologies graciously.
Being happily married is not the same as living happily ever after.
Marriage will teach you more about yourself than you expected. Consider that a gift.
Say good morning with a smile
Goodnight kiss always
Squeeze them gently
Never bite.
