In my last post, I discussed the importance of the husband-wife relationship, and I said couples should strengthen their bond and work on their relationship first before going further next step. In this post, I will discuss the tips that may help strengthen the bond between them.
Suppose we see the recent stats of marriages and divorces. In that case, we will find out the graph of divorce is much higher than the marriage and the reason behind it is the incompatibility between spouses which arises due to different reasons. Today, I will discuss a few tips to work a relationship better and grow it more substantial.
- Respect Each other
The first and the most important thing is always to respect your spouse. The basis of every relation in this world is respect, and the relationship can’t even move a step forward if the element of care is missing. Even in your hard times or when you quarrel, never disrespect each other, it will mend the hearts, and your relationship will become stronger after that period.
- Never Make Comparison
Never compare your partners with others; it will make your partner insecure and diminish your relationship badly. Every relationship has its flaws and issues. No one is perfect. We can’t judge others chemistry just by a few Instagram pics and Facebook stories expressing their love. No one knows what is going on behind the scenes. You will never know their struggles in one pic or story, so never fantasize about others. As the saying goes, don’t judge a book by its cover. It will only ruin your relationship.
- Communication & Confession
Always communicate with your partner, share as much as you can. It will help to understand each other. If you have any complaints, share them with your partner instead of bitching around. It will help your spouse understand your issues, your likes and dislikes, and ultimately they will try to fix it, making you fall in love with them all over again. Share your routines, what did you do the whole day, whom you met, confess your love. The more you communicate, the more comfortable you will be with each other, and your bond will grow stronger.
- Ego Management
Never keep your ego first with your partner. The partnership means equality, and the husband-wife relationship is like one body with two hearts. So keeping the ego in between will fall apart the body. If there is an issue between the partners, both should come forward, talk it out and resolve it instead of giving a silent treatment and nurturing their egos. There shouldn’t be any third party between husband and wife, not even their ego. It will only damage their relationship.
- Handling Disagreement
It’s OK if both partners don’t agree on different matters, and it’s natural. Instead of quarrelling and objecting, learn to respect your spouse’s opinion. Never force your views and wishes on your spouse; instead, try to work it out with different perspectives. You live according to your personal choices and let your partner enjoy their life according to their choices. This way, both partners will explore new in life every day as both will have two ways to go collectively.
- Give Space to Each Other
It’s a saying, ‘If you want to lose something, hold it tightly.’
Marriage doesn’t mean being together all the time. It means to be there for each other whenever needed. So constantly give space to each other. Let your partner go out and enjoy with their friends and family alone, and you do the same. Take a break from each other once in a while. This break will teach the importance of each other in life. The more you both miss each other, the more you will come closer. Some healthy leaves are always good for a relationship, and it nurtures the bond stronger.
I still have a lot to say and a lot of tips, and I will write about it more some other time. For the time being, I think the length of the post is enough.
If you have some more tips, I would love to know them too. 😊
