10 Keys to a Successful Marriage
1. Happiness and Support are the Key Ingredients
When I was young I often thought how come two people can live together without any expectations from each other. Today, I realized that happiness and support are the two main ingredients to a successful marriage. One simple smile can make you forget thousands of pain. And when there are happiness and support in a marriage, it’s quite beautiful.
2. Value the Love, Not Money
When there is love, happiness, and support…money does not matter. And in all cases, money should never come between you two! If you want something to compare…compare your love with your passion, career, goals, and everything which makes you successful.

3. Do Things in a Different Way
After some time things begin to look normal and from this point, the marriage begins to fade. Do not let your marriage fade and try things differently.
For example, if every weekend you go somewhere to spend time, do it in a unique way every time. Like, visiting cafes and restaurants looks normal to me, so we try to plan a small trip every month or twice a month.
4. Change Your Attitude and Get in Sync
Marriage is a mutual thing and changing behavior or attitude is really essential for a successful marriage. Bad behavior, actions, or attitude can lead to consequences that you might don’t want to face.
5. Keep Watering The Greenery and Removing the Dirt
A farmer is only successful when keeps watering the greenery and removing the dirt. Similarly, know when to water and when to filter.

7. Love is Blind, But Your Efforts are Not!
They say love is blind but I say efforts are not. As I said above, marriage is full of ups and downs, do not stop giving efforts to your marriage. Efforts are always seen at the right time and the right place (just wait for your time).
8. Dissolve the Grudges And Move On
Holding on to grudges is the most negative thing you can do to your partner. Marriage is all about forgiving each other and loving each other unconditionally. Therefore, let go of the grudges, move on, and build a successful life together.
