Love is never enough for a successful union unless accompanied by a lot of dedication and compromise by both parties.
Finding and keeping a lover that ticks the right boxes is hard enough, and it gets harder after marriage.
Here are three simple secrets that ensure the longevity of a marriage:
1. Have a cheap wedding:
The easiest thing to start fighting about marriage is finances. Take time to spend only what you can conveniently afford. Otherwise, money based arguments will find their way into the bedroom.
2. Use the word "we" often:
According to a study carried out in University of California, Berkeley, couples who use the word 'we' and 'us' when they are arguing easily resolve their issues and don't suffer much stress.
3. Doing things that you both enjoy:
Some people participate in activities their partner strongly dislikes. This may lead to unhappiness in the marriage.
