Love & Marriage Love & Marriage

If you have a great marriage...Why?

Posted by   + Show Post

 We were out with another couple on Saturday night and they asked us why we seem to have such a great marriage.  When dh and I got home we were listing all the things that we think has made our relationship great.  Here's our top 5, What are yours?

1.  We talk

2.  We trust

3.  We put each other first

4.  We balance each other out

5.  We have sex almost daily.

We're open and honest about everything. We're best friends and talk through our issues more than we fight about them. We spend time together, don't call names, don't assign blame, and have cute inside jokes.

2) We compromise and don't sweat the small stuff

3) We have faith, trust and respect for each other

4) We forgive and move past anger

5) We make our marriage a priority and always try to improve it

6) We support one another

7) We try and maintain a healthy sex life

8) Make time for "us" without the kids

9) Love each other unconditionally

10) And really listen and try to understand each other's feelings

1. We are honest and respectful
2. We communicate well and forgive easily
3. We enjoy life and have similar values
4. We both are faithful and are willing to work at our relationship.
5. We are sexually compatible ( I would like it a little more, but I finally realize that sex doesn't make or break a relationship. It's a great extra)

Just about the same as yours...(except #5)...and we say "I love you" often!!  We've also started doing a lot better about taking "us" time (going for an evening walk just the two of us, etc.) and "mixing things up" a bit when it comes to intimacy.

We are really working in it. I would say that it is all in the communication. If you communicate and respect one another everything else will fall into place
