Little Things That Negatively Change Marriage Relationships

1. Watching a lot of Television

  • Entertainment is meant to help us have fun together.
  • When we watch TV excessively, we communicate a lack of ambition and purpose to our partners.
  • No one wants to be stuck with a loser.
  • We need to reduce watching TV to under an hour per day and get busy reading, writing, learning, creating, etc.

2. Eating fast food too much and not exercising

  • Fast foods are cheap and quick to get.
  • They are also rather quick to deteriorate our looks and health.
  • A sickly and an unattractive partner is not pretty.
  • Exercising is known to make people feel happier, boost energy levels, improve memory, etc.

3. Neglecting our appearance

  • Not showering or brushing one’s teeth often, for example, means one doesn’t even place great value on oneself.
  • It is not uncommon for people to treat us the way we treat ourselves, it is psychological.
  • Let endeavor to iron our clothes, dress well, look smart, smell great.
  • Our spouses should not feel embarrassed to introduce us to others.

4. Leaving the marriage to take care of itself

  • This is not a good place to be.
  • Nothing good comes easy.
  • The only thing that grows without proper care is a weed.
  • It is very important for us to go out on dates at least once in a fortnight.
  • It is also very important to spend quality time together daily just having a nice conversation and laughing out loud together.

5. Arguing over petty issues often

The only way to get the best of an argument is to avoid it – Dale Carnegie.

  • It is funny how we think shouting and scolding will make the other person change his/her mind.
  • What to do when the other person is bent on arguing is to dish out genuine words of praise, followed by deep and sincere admiration.
  • This raises the standard and he/she will want to reach it.
  • I have to admit this is very difficult to do but with practice, we will master it.
