4 Ways How women can build a long-lasting marriage


By Nsiiro Jacob

Some couples have bad marriages while others have it really good. But what makes one better than the other? What are the secrets of those who are blissfully happy in their marriage? According to Madam Felicia, here are 4 simple secrets of a successful marriage that every wife should take note of:

1. There needs to be re-communication about expectations:This is the first thing that couples should do before they get married. Once the knot has been tied, expectations should be re-communicated. If you would like him to be extra affectionate, make him aware of your needs. If you expect an open and honest communication about everything, tell him. You can only get what you expect out of the marriage if the other person knows what that is. If not, you could end up in a very frustrating situation with neither of you getting what you want.

2. Give him the love and respect that he deserves: Men love it when their wives thank them for doing something, even something as small as washing the dishes. Give him a compliment every now and then about his dressing or about how great of a job he did painting the living room. Little things like that mean a lot to a man and it will show him that you love and appreciate him.

3. Focus on the great things about your relationship and about your partner: Don’t focus on the little things that bug you. Instead, think about all of the things that you love about him, the little things that he does for you, and how he makes you feel. It will keep the feelings alive. This will cause your husband to cherish and love you more, thus causing you both to live happily ever after.

4. Set aside just a few minutes a day to reconnect: Date night is a great way to reconnect, but if you spend at least ten minutes daily, and use those minutes to talk about anything that you want to, you will learn new things about your partner and be able to connect with them. It may only be a few minutes per day but they will be the most important minutes out of those 24 hours. Every relationship requires commitment and hard work. But it’s absolutely worth it! So, never stop courting your spouse and you’ll be among the lucky couples who actually live “happily ever after”.
