A stronger and happier marriage doesn’t just happen overnight. It takes a lot of work, like spending more time with your spouse and remembering to always give small gifts that show you care. 


The focus of this article is to identify ten things that you can do to improve your marriage and make it stronger. If you are single, you may want to print this out and put it under your pillow. I hope that this helps some of the people who might be reading this.


Marriage is an adventure, and as with all adventures, there are ups and downs.


The problem is that we expect the downs to go away once we get married. They don't. It's just that instead of working through our problems with no goal in mind, now we have a larger purpose: our marriage.


With these ten keys you’ll be well on your way towards building a lasting, loving relationship with the one you love.


  1. Marry the right person.

 It sounds obvious, but it's worth saying: make sure you marry someone who's right for you. Don't allow pressure from friends or family to rush you into a relationship before you're ready, and try not to let the excitement of falling in love prevent you from asking hard questions about your partner's suitability as a long-term life companion.


  1. Don't expect too much from marriage.

 It can be easy to fall prey to the fairy tale mindset – that marriage will solve all of your problems and make you happy forever after. But as we all know, life is never quite like that! Marriage is an important part of our lives, but it doesn't define us completely. If we put too much pressure on our marriages to solve all of our problems and give us perfect happiness, we're setting ourselves up for disappointment.


  1. Be committed to your marriage.

People change over time, but commitment means staying with your partner even when their views or behavior change in ways you find difficult or unpleasant to deal with. 


  1. Don't ever stop trying to improve your communication skills with each other 

Because communication is the key that unlocks the door between two hearts and two minds, and one day you will realize that no matter how great a marriage may have been in the past, or how much love there may have been in the past, it will never be enough if the communication is not great today and forevermore into the future days ahead of you.


  1. Don't expect perfection from yourself or your spouse.

No one is perfect, so learn how to accept each other's flaws and forgive each other when either of you makes a mistake — both big and small ones are bound to happen over the course of a lifetime!


  1. Spend quality time together


Some of the best moments you have with your partner are the ones when you're just being yourselves and enjoying each other's company. It doesn't have to be doing something big, just something that the both of you enjoy and can make memories out of.


  1. Be physically intimate with your partner


This one is pretty obvious, but it's still something that needs to be said. Being intimate with your partner physically is a huge part of maintaining a healthy relationship.


  1. Always make an effort to look good for each other


If you want to keep your partner satisfied, then making an effort to look good for them always is a great way to go about it! It shows that you care about how they see you as well as how they feel, and that's very important in all aspects of a relationship.


  1. Be honest with each other in everything


Being honest with your partner is vital in keeping your relationship strong and healthy! It's especially important in situations where there might be a bit of conflict or disagreement, because if there are things that need to be said then it's better for them to be said sooner rather than later so that you can move past them and not let them cause any unnecessary tension between the two.


  1. Stay connected


Staying connected will help you maintain your connection in the midst of the craziness that is life. When you stay connected with your spouse, it will help you to understand and appreciate them on a deeper level. The more connected you are, the less likely you are to have problems in your marriage.


  1. Don't Lose Yourself in Your Relationship


It's easy to lose yourself in a relationship, especially when you're really into someone. There are many ways this can happen. It could be that you go along with whatever your significant other wants because you don't want to disappoint them, or you get so comfortable in the relationship that you let yourself go physically. Before you know it, the things that made up your identity are gone.


Going into a relationship with an understanding of what makes you who you are and what's important to you will help prevent this from happening. It's also important to keep open communication with your spouse and be willing to compromise when necessary.

  1. Talk about goals and dreams for the future


Being on the same page with goals and dreams can be one of the most powerful ways to strengthen your relationship. Take time to talk about them together, and figure out how you can work together towards them as a couple.


  1. Listen, really listen, to each other


We all know how important communication is in our relationships, but many people aren’t very good at it. Many times we say something and then move on without really listening to what our partners have to say back — because we’re too busy planning what we want to say next! Take some time to really listen to each other


I hope you find these tips helpful. If you are dedicating your entire life to something like staying strong in your marriage then you should be rewarded for all you've done. Being a family man is one of the greatest things in this world, and I recommend it to everyone!
