Changing face of sexual normsThose were the days when love, romance and innocence were all part of one treasured package. Eager to explore the mystery of sex but too petrified about the outcome, you remained what you were meant to remain – a virgin till marriage happened. I’m speaking about life in the 60s through the mid 70s.

Like most girls of my age (I was 19 then), I had an ideal – to relate closely with a man emotionally first and only then physically. Given the potent attraction that the opposite sex held for us, one never forgot that sex was trouble and female sexuality, dangerous. If you were smart, you necked, you kissed and allowed his hands to probe a bit, but you held on tenaciously to the most important thing in your life as a woman – your virginity!

In the circles that I moved in, there were however, some couples who went beyond the prescribed limits of ‘decency’. But even for them, sex had to have an emotional resonance. Hardly ever did a woman relinquish her virginity with ease. And if you had indulged in premarital sex and people got to know about it, it most certainly put you beyond the pale.

Successful MarriageToday, with the hustle and bustle of busy lives, there seems to be little time for the marriage relationship. Couples need all the help they can get. Too many couples choose divorce, thinking it is easier than working at the problems. And mistakingly, couples think that if they are having problems, that something is wrong or the marriage was doomed from the get go. This is not so. The fact is that every marriage has rocks in the road. There are simple but effective ways to make your marriage stronger and perhaps even save it.

The first key is to make a commitment to one another. A couple must know that one another is COMMITTED to the marriage. Insecurity sends up steel walls as a defensive mechanism, because without knowing that your partner is totally committed to you, no matter what, you cannot fully give love or receive your spouse’s love. That is the meaning of the marriage vows.

Indian WeddingToday, one out of two marriages will end in divorce. Many people fail to ask themselves why they are getting married and end up marrying for the wrong reasons. Love, of course seems like the best reason. However, it is not. The best reason to marry someone is companionship. For a marriage to be successful, both partners must have a genuine companionship. Of course, there are several reasons why a couple should not get married even if they do have companionship.

People are born with a desire to be loved and give love. It can be the most fulfilling feeling in the world. However, marrying simply because of love is not a good idea. Yes, it may sound very romantic. In fact, it is one of the main reasons people get married. Love alone is not a good reason to get married.

Marriages succeed when there is a strong foundation of companionship built by the couple. A strong foundation for marriage includes compatibility, trust, and communication. Couples should ask themselves three questions to decide if marriage is right for them.

Peach branchesAll is fair in love and war they say. So, it might seem like a great idea to enhance your love life by using some simple methods suggested by the ancient wisdom Feng Shui.

According to Feng Shui experts the free flow of chi in the southwestern section of a person’s home ensures the flourishing of romantic relationships and hence happy marriages. This corner of your home is known as the “Relationship Gua” in Feng Shui. So, one should make sure that this corner is kept cozy and intimate.

Since the element of the southwest is the earth enhancing this section of the house with earthy materials such as plants, rocks, clay or terracotta is advisable. In case you have paintings that depict natural scenes (though it is best to avoid water) these could be used as well.
