Now that August is here, the countdown to my 30th birthday has begun! Starting a new decade has me thinking about ways to make EVERY part of my life happier and successful but this is a marriage blog so I thought I’d focus on ways to make your marriage happier! Obviously, these things can help ANY relationship you have whether it’s with your family, friends or spouse.
- Express gratitude
- Remember the little everyday things – like meetings
- Prioritize your partner
- Work on yourself
- Laugh more together
- Acknowledge the positive
- Thoughtful gestures
- Foster friendships outside your marriage
- Don’t criticize in public.
- Spend time thinking about happy times in your relationship
My parents’ marriage taught me that it isn’t the grand gestures but the little things—and taking these simple steps over time will yield bigger, happier results.
So tell me, what are some things YOU do that make your marriage happier?
