How to be Happy in Marriage and keep a Happy Relationship

For how to be happy in marriage does it really make a difference in the attitude of each other to keep the happy relationship? Is attitude a responsibility for a successful marriage? Will one’s poor attitude make it difficult for how to stay married forever?

Thinking back to why I titled this article the way I did, what action does the good or bad attitude of either marital partner strike in keeping a happy relationship?

For example, if the husband is an extremist about things like dinner on the table at the right time, and coffee at the right temperature in the morning, and the wife doesn’t care about coffee in the morning or dinner at night, will this be a successful marriage?

The ways and routines along with values, objectives and beliefs, and all such traits that make us part of the human race are the important part for couples in how to be happy in marriage.

What difference does the attitude of either couple make to a happy relationship?

When considering tips for happy married life I would say a happy relationship as one in which each party likes to make one another happy.

I mean truly wanting to be with each other, while enjoying and depending on the other for love and being truly happy.

Are there any tips for happy married life?

(Here’s another related article about more on good relationship advice – say from the relationship hotline of your inner core.) 

For how to be happy in marriage when a partner meets the other at dinner time after a long day both of them are anxious to see each other.  

Again, why I titled this article the way I did truly has so much to do with what I’d like to see in my own marriage, IF, I were to ever get married again.

My habits and her habits, attitudes and such, inner worth and values, objectives and goals for our life together would need to be in alignment with each other.

Wouldn’t you agree?

I’d like to have the same or similar spiritual beliefs, same or similar music interests, food likes, and so on, and I think you get my drift, here.

These are the things for how to be happy in marriage we’d have no problem with, and would guarantee a happy relationship.

I would say this would almost cover any tips for happy married life and most importantly for how to stay happily married.

How to stay happily married is something, too!

In a happy relationship when either of the individuals greets each other after a long day they both feel so glad to see each other.

So a happy relationship and one that lasts forever, has great love for one another where both have loving thoughts that builds great attitudes that are very ideal.

The Course in Miracles teaches, “If all but loving thoughts have been forgotten, what remains is eternal.”

So let’s compare how to be happy in marriage today as was the case ages ago when many did what they could to put up with each other in miserable fashion.

So what is the difference today for how to stay happily married?

Don’t we have less bondage and more freedom toward self-expression today?

Sure we do!

And this freedom of expression today makes our power of choice so much stronger and where we naturally choose a better attitude toward the happy relationship, thus creating a successful marriage.

I read where an author said that, “Wedlock in the old days was more like a prison term with harsh rules to live under.”

But can’t we say that today for how to be happy in marriage means a loving couple’s respect toward one another making the love that much stronger?

A successful marriage is wonderful to see!

I’m sure you have seen a few or perhaps many marriages that are in miserable conditions. 

The relationship seems to stay together only because of the inconveniences and the money matters of divorce or separation. And the battles continue making a nothing life for each other.

The Course in Miracles states, “See no one from the battleground, for there you look on him from nowhere. You have no reference point from where to look, where meaning can be given what you see.”

Being afraid to let go and move on, and I mean to move forward in life in a newer direction seems for many to be a difficult pill to swallow.

The good news for you is that if you are upbeat and willing to have the right attitude for how to be happy in marriage, you will then have a happy relationship that is long lasting and forever.
