Happily Ever AfterDo you know what all happy and healthy marriages have in common? In every one of them you will find two people committed to making each other happy. You will find a man who cherishes his wife and puts her needs above his own, and you will find a wife who respects and trusts her man. We live in very selfish times. Pop-psychology messages are everywhere in the media encouraging us to love ourselves, do right by ourselves, and generally please ourselves first. If you really want a happy marriage, don’t buy into that type of self-centered thinking. Instead, try these 10 time-tested techniques and experience the happiness, peace, and tranquility of a healthy marriage.

1. Make time for each other. It’s so easy in our hyper-busy modern lifestyles to forget to set aside a little time to enjoy each other’s company. Start a weekly tradition of setting a date for the two of you to be together doing something you both enjoy. Keep it simple. Take a nice walk together. Sip coffee together in a cozy coffeehouse. Talk to each other, reminisce, and get to know each other again.

Improve your MarriageHave you ever heard the phrase “You are what you eat”? This catchy slogan from the fitness industry reminds us that how we “spend” our calories determines our health. Want to be fat? Then eat lots of fat. Want to be healthy? Well, you get the idea.

When it comes to your marriage,”YOU ARE WHAT YOU DO.” In other words, how you and your spouse SPEND YOUR TIME determines the strength of your marriage. Spend it together and you’ll feel connected. Do your own thing too often and you might sleep in the same bed, but you’ll feel worlds apart.

At the beginning of your relationship, you probably had no trouble spending lots of time together doing just about anything. And, in fact, SHARING TIME was exactly what CREATED CLOSENESS between you. But as the years went by, you probably took up separate interests, and began to spend more and more time apart.

Successful MarriageShailesh had no idea if every man who got married had a wife who was as attached to her mother as his wife was. For the first few months after their marriage, his wife Shweta would listen to a tape of her mother singing old Hindi film songs and cry her eyes out. Every chance she got, she was on the phone to her mother. Meanwhile, whenever his parents, who lived in the same town, even came over for a few hours, they would get indifferent treatment.

“Initially, I hardly knew how to tackle her abnormal attachment to her parents,” says Shailesh. “I thought all women were like this, and that she had given up her family to be with me, that’s why she was entitled to some sadness. But when her family clearly continued to be the utmost priority for her, and she refused to even behave with normal courtesy to our neighbours, my friends and my parents, I had to take a stand.”

The stand he took, unfortunately came after four years of marriage and resulted in their divorce.
Not every couple faces a similar situation, and not all brides are as excessively attached to their mothers as Shweta was. But any Indian marriage comes with a substantial amount of baggage in the form of the parents of one’s partner. Since families are much closer knit among us than in some other parts of the world, and parents do not feel they have to ‘let go’ of their children soon after they have become majors, mothers and fathers tend to loom much larger in an Indian marriage than in many others in the modern world.
