The constant increase in divorce rates in Malaysia is worrying. Many couples question how they will be able to stay married once they have married. It often appears that finding love is simpler than keeping it. Every couple needs tools to sustain and nourish their love once the first high of new love wears off – and it always does. Here are a few tips to consider when working towards longevity in your relationship.
- Be flexible: One of the biggest predictors of durability in a long-term relationship is how similar your beliefs, values, ambitions, and ways of thinking about key subjects are. Unless you and your partner are very flexible and adept at compromising, the more apart you are, the more likely you will have regular arguments. Of course, there will be disagreements – even the strongest couples have them. If the difference between you and the other person is tiny, though, compromising will be easier.
- Balance: This means that no one is flawless, and you will not be able to adore everything about them. Unfortunately, many individuals believe they are expected to adore everything about their spouse, so when there is something they don't like about them, they become fixated on it and even try to alter it. When it comes to love, you have to take the good with the bad because, in the end, the great should exceed the negative in the relationship.
- Source of happiness: Personal unhappiness is frequently at the foundation of marital dissatisfaction (which can be related to work, level of success, health or weight, etc.). These personal flaws are frequently blamed on the marriage. In reality, many couples who opted to stay in unpleasant marriages five years later are still pleased, despite the fact that nothing in the marriage has changed. So, if you're unhappy because of your relationship, take a step back and ask yourself if it's truly you.
These 3 tips will help you sustain your marriage and make it blossom into a healthy relationship. Healthy relationships can help you live longer and reduce stress. According to studies, the social and emotional support provided by a committed partnership or a great friendship might act as a stress buffer. Many biological benefits have also been discovered, including lower blood pressure and stronger immune systems, according to studies.
