Tips for a successful marriage

26 January 2016, 08:18

We asked the experts and got their advice on how couples can avoid these common problems:


According to Money Rates, a personal finance and investment website, couples can find financial harmony by applying the following tips:

- Arrange regular times to talk about money, and to draw up a budget that both partners agree on.
- Respect each partner's contribution. Your spouse's contribution shouldn't affect how you treat them.
- Divide financial tasks – don't let just one person carry the financial burdern, take turns to manage the money.
- Set common goals – building toward a shared goal, for example an emergency savings account, can help couples function more like a team.


In a healthy relationship, sex should be a loving and caring act that binds partners together, and regardless of how difficult the situation is, sexual dynamics and issues should be openly discussed within the relationship. Psychotherapist Dr Tanya Robinson says that communication should be the start of resolving sexual problems, but it should be balanced with attempting to remain intimate. She says that when couples talk about their sexual needs it is important for each spouse to be understanding and non-judgmental.
