By Melanie

The divorce rate is really up there and I would hate to hear that one of my fellow readers/bloggers, friends or clients is getting a divorce! I have been married for seven years. Sure, for some of you, that may not sound like a long time. I got married when I was 18 and don’t regret it one bit. You see, we’re still going strong, just like the day we met. It seems I know some pretty good trips to a great marriage! Below, I am going to give you 8 tricks to a great marriage. Whether you choose to do them or not is fully up to you, but they’re always here for you!

8 Share a Hobby Together

If you do not have a hobby to do together, then find one! Many couples choose to go fishing together, while others choose to travel together. I not only love fishing with my husband, but I also play video games with him. Those are two hobbies that we do together. In my opinion, sitting there watching movies isn’t a great way to connect, so it shouldn’t be considered a hobby.

Come on, you can’t tell me that you don’t like the idea of dressing up in bed! Well, to all of you girls, I am sure your spouse would like it! Guys love lace, especially black and red lace. So, get in touch with your sexy side and start dressing up!

6 Spend Time Together

I can’t think of a better idea to connect than to spend time together. Just as you need to feed your body to survive, you need to feed your marriage to survive. In this case, the food for your marriage is spending time together. You don’t want your marriage to become “bony” now do you?

5 Don’t Be Negative

You should leave that negative attitude at the door. Don’t let the stress from your job interfere with your marriage. You could end up saying some stuff that cannot be taken back.

4 Trust Your Partner

I always told my husband that we would not fight over money. Sure, money is needed to survive, but fighting over it is not going to get you anywhere. Instead of fighting, sit down and come up with a solution to get through the situation. It always worked for me!

Sure, some couples leave their children with a babysitter, but I can never do this when I’m going out to dinner. Take your children along with you and have fun. This is a good way to connect with each other, all together as a family!

The minute you got married is the moment you devoted your life to your partner. Make sure you stay faithful. There should be no other guy or girl in your marriage. A big part of divorces are caused by people who could not stay faithful. If you are looking at other people, then maybe it’s not meant to be.

See, there are 8 ways to go about having a great marriage. In the end, I would also like to add that no one is perfect, so you should not expect your spouse to be perfect. What about you? Do you have any tips?
