Isn’t it great to be in a relationship? The butterfly feeling in the stomach when you are in love with someone is a great experience. Lifelong commitment and marriage is an obvious step when you feel like you are with ‘The person’, you always wanted to be. Ironically, the average length of a marriage is eight years. Not only this, seven-year itch is a psychological term that suggests that the happiness in a relationship declines after seven years. What goes wrong with the course of time? How can you make your marriage last forever? Let us find out together.
Don’t take your partner for granted:
The priority changes with time and this is when the relationship suffers. Your partner and family should be the top priority, regardless of the time. Marriage gives you a feeling of being at home. It gives you a feeling of owning the person completely and this is the biggest mistake. You’ll be with the person till eternity, but you just can’t take him/her for granted. Remember, the reason for getting married in the first place. Treasure your partner like you used to earlier and the love will stay forever.
Find a friend in your partner:
Arrested Development actress, Portia De Rossie was once asked by a journalist the secret of making her marriage work. She gushed on the question saying that her spouse and she were like best friends. They just love hanging out and being together all the time. After years of marriage, it is not the love that fades away, but the friendship. So, instead of looking for a wife or a husband in your partner, try to find a friend within your partner. Quarrel and fight like you would do with your friends, but remember to forget and forgive the very next day.
