Marriage is also a spiritual and emotional union.

Most people get married believing a myth that marriage is a beautiful thing they have longed for. It can be friendship, companionship, intimacy, or a close emotional bond. But does it really happen? Or is it always really true?

The truth is that marriage at the beginning is an empty box. And it's as similar as if you want to pull out a note from your wallet to spend, then you need to fill it out first. Similarly, if you want to take out anything from your relationship, then you need to fill that empty box. Beautiful words like love and romance are not inbuilt in marriage. It is we who need to infuse it. A couple must learn the art and form and the habit of giving, loving, serving, praising, etc. At the beginning of every relationship, there remain expectations. And when any of the expectations are not fulfilled then begins the tug of war. Relationships are harder now. No one is ready to compromise or sacrifice.

Reasons behind the Difficult Relationships are:

  • Conversations have become texting.
  • Arguments are not done face to face but over phone calls.
  • Feelings have become subliminal messages.
  • Habit of becoming insecure or jealous.
  • Trust is hard to come by.
  • Feeling as if always hurt.

As a result of these reasons, leaving becomes the only option.

Divorce has become common these days. By divorce not only do husband and wife get separated but children also feel unwanted.

Marriages can be saved and beautified. Only certain steps need to be taken. If you find your partner is silent then you need to find the reason for the silence. You should remind your partner that you are always there. You should appreciate every single deed of your partner. See the best in each other. There is no challenge strong enough to destroy your bond as long as you both are willing to stop fighting against each other and start fighting for each other. Many factors contribute to a satisfying relationship. They are:

  • Love
  • Commitment
  • Trust
  • Time
  • Attention
  • Good communication

Now good communication includes:

  • Listening
  • Tolerance
  • Patience
  • Openness
  • Honesty
  • Respect
  • Sharing
  • Consideration
  • Generosity
  • Empathy
  • Humor

Protect your marriage by regularly practicing the above things. Try new things and share new experiences with your spouse. Having conversations with your partner about your future together is very important in a long-term relationship. Companionship, passion, and purpose are the 3 gifts of marriage that can keep the spark always sparkling.
