7 Secrets of Happy Couples
7 Secrets of Happy Couples
Why do some couples stay happy together for a lifetime, while others are in conflict almost from the beginning?
Published by mystery88
8th November 2009
Book

1. Trust:
Suspicion and jealousy are the death knell of any relationship. If the other is going to cheat or otherwise dishonor the relationship, suspicion and jealousy will not prevent it, and such a relationship is fatally flawed in any case. Unwarranted suspicion and jealousy create misery in a surprising number of relationships. If you want to live happily, trust your partner completely. If they dishonor your trust, deal with the situation then. In the meanwhile, your will have been happy.

2. Open Communication:
Tell the truth, tell the whole truth. If you didn't want to share your whole life with your partner, why are you together? If you make a mistake, admit it. If you have doubts, talk about them. Secrets and lies kill a relationship. With truth and openness anything is possible. Even if something is unforgivable, it is better to deal with it quickly.

3. Honoring the other's point-of-view:
People disagree, couples disagree. Understanding that the two partners in a couple remain individuals is crucial to a happy relationship. Why would you expect that you and your partner should agree on everything? Honor that one of you is a Republican and the other a Democrat. Honor that one of you is a vegetarian and the other loves a great steak.

4. Self-Confidence:
Co-dependence is another frequent cause of failed relationships. Happy couples know that they don't need each other. Each partner is a completely whole and valid individual who has entered into a voluntary partnership. Neither "owns" the other, nor "can't live without" the other. Each has their own interests and friends, as well as having mutual interests and friends.

5. Generocity:
Greed and selfishness kill relationships. True love is generous in spirit. Mostly, generosity is not about material things, although that is also important. To have a happy relationship, be generous of your time, your love, and your attention.

6. Forgiveness:
Resentments and thoughts of revenge and vengeance have no place in a happy relationship. Happy couples forgive each other completely for everything the other has ever done or failed to do - no exceptions.

7. Gratitude:
Happy couples are continuously grateful for each other. Every day there are a myriad of reasons to be grateful for your partner. Find those reasons each day, and thank your partner every day.

Re: 7 Secrets of Happy Couples

and learn to trust unless you have very good reason to suspect your partner
dont ruin the relationship with endless suspicion. Find evidence then confront your partner. but beofer that decide if it really matters first

talk to someone if not sure

Well, that would be too good if these were enough to get a long lasting relationship.
Unfortunately, it's not the case.

Re: 7 Secrets of Happy Couples

thanks mystery88 for the wonderful article.
its very true and useful.. but its hard to fulfill them..

things in life is very unpredictable.. it's much easier to be said than done, esp when it comes to matters of the heart.
