Communication

Marriages are made in heaven, but can be destroyed here on earth! A silly fight, where you kiss and make up in a matter of minutes, is fine. In fact, it can actually be good for a relationship; it would be boring if you didn't have little disagreements. But a serious, full-blown conflict that results in a stalemate where neither partner is ready to concede defeat, is detrimental to a marriage.

4. Compromise is the key

Every marriage has more than its fair share of conflicts. There is no point avoiding them or glossing over them. The trick lies in ensuring that the conflict is a healthy one and you learn from it. If the same issue comes up again and again, it means that the root cause has not been attacked and hence it surfaces repeatedly.

The impulse to socialize is one of the basic drives in humans – meeting and exchanging pleasantries is how people lay the groundwork for co-operation and negotiation which is what living in a society is all about. And yet not everybody feels the same way about leaving familiar environs to meet new people and situations. Also socializing is becoming expensive with rising fuel prices and recreational costs. Indeed the stress created by differing aspirations around socializing can even pose a threat to the stability of relationships.

People are increasingly the importance of preserving the environment and saving it from further degradation in the name of economic progress. If you are part of this growing tribe but your partner isn’t, then having a life together may make for some amount of friction. Here are a few tips on how you can go green and encourage your partner to see your point of view.

Start simple

When two people start falling in love, they feel that it would never be possible to run out of things to say to each other. But sooner or later, a time comes when even the most devoted of couples may begin to wonder what else to talk about. Which is a pity really, since conversations are one of the most natural ways to know more about each other. So if you are raring to discover more about the new person in your life or simply need to break the monotony of years of marriage, here are a few conversation topics to get you started.

Every marriage goes through rough patches and more often than not, issues are eventually sorted out with both partners making an attempt to find common ground. However things become that much harder when there is a mismatch of priorities too so that saving the marriage becomes the concern of only one partner. Under such circumstances, you may be tempted to give up on the relationship but take heart that things can still be turned around even if you are only one trying to save the marriage.

Make another attempt

There are many married women who find themselves unloved and neglected by their husbands. Even after investing all their time and effort into the marriage, wives sometimes discover that they are at best taken for granted and at worst rejected by their husbands. If your experience too has been dishearteningly similar, here are some tips to make your husband appreciate you and the relationship you share.

The natural tendency of humans is to trust their fellow social beings. When someone says to you, “I have read that book” or “I like your haircut”, you tend to take the statements at their face value. In fact, the natural trustworthiness of humans is crucial towards maintaining a harmonious and civil society.
