Most people get into marriage for the wrong reasons, thinking that marriage will fix all the loops and holes in the whole relationship.

Most people get into marriages for the wrong reasons, thinking that marriage will fix all the loops and holes in the relationship. 1. Your spouse is an individual  You need to  understand that your spouse has different thoughts, feelings, desires, and fears that are separate from those of your own. And they are not there to rescue you or even fix you, but are there to be part of the journey and make life experiences happier.

2. Have a mission and vision agreement

This will be the foundation for the relationship, you know what you both are working towards and what you both want now and later.

3. Ignore old norm and way of doing thing

Openly discuss responsibilities. Do not think because one of your mothers did the laundry every week, it should be the same way with you. Do what works for the two of you or the family at large.

4. Discuss the impact of external influences on your marriage

Like extended family members financial support and debts. If one of you came into the relationship with debts, discuss it and do not hide it from your spouse.

5.Get some alone time

As much as time together is advised and suggested, it also great for the couple to be away from each other for a while. It gives you time to reflect, think out of the box, and most importantly it allows you to miss your better half.
