Here are the highlights…..

  • Always ask your spouse how his/her day went.
  • Quarrels are bound to happen but they should never affect your relationship with your spouse. You can be madly in love with a person and can also be mad at him/her. Quarrels do not necessarily mean that the marriage should come to an end. Staying together means you have chosen friendship and peace over conflicts. Pete buttresses his point with this proverb, ‘a bad peace is better than a good quarrel.’ And he claims this is the reason why they rarely engage in fights.
  • A relationship comes with obligations. This means that sometime you will have to compromise by doing something you don’t like or want. But you will have to do these things because your presence makes him or her happy.
  • Gifts are very important. Never forget that little gifts are remembered for a long time. As they say, pleasant trifles play a big role in life, especially the signs of You don’t need to haveat you have the same friends. You don’t have to insist on parties with other married couples with whom one of you does not have a friendly relationship.
  • Kiss each other often. If one of you has to go to work early, you can kiss your spouse tenderly and try not to wake him/her up.
  • Sometimes, you may have to refuse invitations to stay with your spouse. Life can make either of you very busy and you don’t have to fill the calendar of the week with unnecessary meetings and invitations.
  • Treat your in-laws as you would treat your own family. Your in-laws will be pleased when you consider them as your family.
  • You should say “I Love You” often. These three words can never become obsolete. They are always nice to hear. Tell them more often, do not skimp on words.
  • Show sympathy when your loved one is sick. Perhaps, because of this, cancel some meetings that are not too special, instead of going to the restaurant you can cook at home.
  • You can assist your husband (wife) with household chores especially when there is a lot of work to be done.
  • Never joke or mock each other, especially in front of other people. Mocking your partner should never be done either in public or in private. Show respect to each other and pay attention to what you say about your partner, especially in public.
