Trust each other
If we ask married couples for more than 50 years, what is the secret of a long-lasting and happy relationship, most of them will surely respond with confidence. And not only the trust you have in your partner and he in you, but the trust that you both have in relation to the two that you have.
When two people trust each other, they close the way for a series of disagreements within the marriage, such as jealousy, lies, secrets, and fights. Trust minimizes the chances of the relationship failing, as a feeling of peace and refuge is established in the home.
Discuss your problems clearly
You certainly have already asked yourself, “Is he (or she) upset with me because of that?”
In a marriage, especially in the longest, this and other questions are more common than you might think. But have you ever stopped to think how unnecessary they are most of the time?
If couples discussed their problems more frankly, there would be no room for the partner’s imagination. In order to achieve a lasting and happy relationship, couples need to replace the unspoken rules (the presumed ones) with clear and frank rules, which can be understood and fulfilled by both.
Dialogue is always the best way to resolve this and other issues so important in the relationship. Speaking clearly about your feelings can prevent a number of problems.
