Is There Any Such Thing As A Happy Marriage?

June 22, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 180

With the divorce rate standing at nearly 50%, it makes you wonder whether marriage is worthwhile. Well, yes it is, but you have to work at it.

We all have feet of clay and it's at this point that you must look past these imperfections and come to the startling realization that you, too, aren't perfect. I know! What a bitter revelation.

I think three words sum up a happy marriage; give and take. But of course there's much more to it than that. You meet, you fall madly in love, he/she came straight from Heaven above and you decide to marry. A month's courtship enough, isn't it? No, it isn't. Your partner may have a fault which really doesn't bother you very much now, but later on is likely to drive you insane.

You have a row. Well, not even a row. Let's call it a spat. The worst thing you can do is to start being personal.

"You're just a great fat pig."

"Look at that beer gut on you."

Keep away from these childish insults at all costs. Act like adults. She wants to go and see her parents this weekend. You emphatically don't. Now, it's only natural that she wants to see her parents. If you can't stand them at any price, was it wise to marry in the first place? Remember, you aren't simply marrying the girl/boy. You're marrying the family.

But you have a row about it, and then, horror of horrors, you start being personal about her parents. This isn't simply a mistake. It's a monster. You know the old saying? We've used it before; 'The moving finger writes and having writ, moves on.' You can't take those word back. Once you've said that her mother looks like a brontosaurus, that's it.

So always remember that when you marry the girl/boy, that you like their family too. But you argue about whether to go and see them or not. Do you have a valid excuse for not going? If not, I suggest getting it over with or else the subject will keep coming up and you'll become angrier and angrier, and so will your wife for continually refusing.

If you decide you'd better go, capitulate with good grace. If it's caused quite a row, things being said that shouldn't, learn to apologize. This is vital. Indeed, even if it wasn't your fault, take the high ground and apologize for upsetting her.

You'd be amazed at the number of people who seem totally incapable of apologizing. They look on it as a weakness, when in fact it shows strength of character.

A very good idea is to have a chat to an elderly couple. They've been married for, say, 40 years. They must have a secret or two up their sleeves. You don't stay married for 40 years if you can't stand the sight of one another.

We'll have another look at this later.
