I’m sure most would agree that marriage takes a bit of work. But, what “thing” worth having doesn’t? We all have our good days and just okay days. Sometimes it takes a while to get out the valley of “bad” days as a married couple. Do you know a couple that seems to be really happy? Have you ever asked a couple that you admire, just how they do it? I have. I do it all the time to acquire nuggets and little secrets of success in marriage. I have asked my grandparents, who have been married for 60 years and other young happily married friends of ours. I’ve compiled a list of their secrets. Here are 5 things super happy couples do everyday.

1. Make time to connect.

I blogged about the same thing a while ago. This is sooo important. My husband is actually away A LOT, and absence truly does make the heart grow fonder. I miss him like crazy, everyday! When we're together (and, yes before now) we make sure we have "screen-free" time. We have to talk to each other without holding or sitting in front of anything with a screen (i.e. laptop, cell phone, TV, iPad). My husband eats, sleeps, and breathes his job so, 30 minutes of this is enough to square away minor details, catch up on highs/lows, and grab a quick kiss before one of us is pulled away by something or a little person.

    Secret to a happy marriage: Share yourself completely; no secrets. It is divine to be loved for who you REALLY are. Not an idealized version of yourself. Keeping secrets will mean you’d never know this gift of unconditional love.

      I absolutely love your comment. Agree, 110%…

    I would add touch. I mean hugs, holding hands, rubbing the back, etc. The power of touch is amazing! So be sure you hold each others hands while you connect during the screen free conversation or while you’re reminding each other that you’re sexy. It’s amazing how a simple touch enhances words. After a while if you’re just talking without some simple touching there still could be disconnect. My husband and I always try and have a hand on one another while we indulge in our nightly indulgence tv show, or discussing a serious matter, and we hug a lot!!! Hugs are very strong and it’s impossible to stay/be mad while hugging:).

      I agree. A simple touch, makes a huge difference while spending quality time with your spouse. I’m touchy feely, my husband isn’t. But, simply placing a hand upon him. Provides a level of intimacy, that words can’t describe..

    Sincere couples enjoy and love each other. They talk together and do things together. These couples spend a lot of time together. When they are in conflict they try their best to be fair and kind to each other. Everybody is unique. When couples live together, inevitably they are bound to have differences of opinion and disagreements. Happy couples fight skillfully for a stronger relationship using plural pronouns which help couples align themselves on the same team, as opposed to being adversaries. Loving couples seek and offer forgiveness when they have done something wrong or hurtful. Loving couples always give the benefit of the doubt to the other spouse. Happy couples are positive about each other. Loving couples have relationships characterized by respect, affection and empathy, and they pay close attention to what’s happening in each other’s lives.
