Let’s admit it. No relationship is perfect. Each has their own flaws. It all depends on whether you choose to magnify those or work on addressing those.
The same applies to marriage. Marriage is one of the most important if not the most important relationship you form by choice during your lifetime. So it is crucial to make it work.
There are more than a few marriages that are dysfunctional. And some may not even realize that theirs is dysfunctional assuming that to be usual.
So what is the secret to a happy marriage? What is that secret ingredient that forms the ideal marital bond?
What is the first thought that comes to you when you encounter some sort of a problem? Is it about who should be blamed for it? Or is it about how to fix the problem?
If you or your partner answers in the affirmative for the first option, then there’s something to be worked on. Marriage can involve having to deal with so many different issues that come at you out of nowhere. The two of you should be focused on how to get past it together. And not just assign the blame to the other.
Marriage is a bond between two people who’ve chosen to be together. But thinking of each other as separate and not as one unit, will not help. If you consider marriage to be a game where you should keep score, no one will win. But regarding the two of you as a team getting past hurdles in life together, the marriage wins.
