4 marriage tips for the young couple

29 March 2016, 16:35 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Are you getting married? Here are 4 tips for a young couple looking to do so.

You will get comfortable…really, you will stop waking up and thinking someone looks that amazing when they wake up

It causes panic whenever someone mentions this but it is not such a bad thing as long as the both of you as a couple don’t let it get out of hand. You will not be able to stay sexy 24/7. Someone will not even bother with make up or perfume. That is just what it is. You just need to remember to balance it because if you do not make that effort once in a while to look sexy for a spouse, they will eventually forget that you are actually that. Don’t let it get out of hand but there is nothing wrong with being comfortable. Doing the basics is okay just don’t forget to put on roll on and stay healthy.

Just because you are now a wife or a husband does not mean that you lose who you are

If you find a spouse that does this then put the brakes on that before it gets out of hand especially if they now think you can’t go and do your own things and have fun without them. They are wrong; marriage makes you better not obsolete. Maintain your independence that is how you keep spontaneity in your relationship. But if you are always on someone’s behind and at their beck and call, you are both setting yourself up. It will reach a point you will crave it and at this point is when you see old married people acting crazy and doing things that don’t make sense.

Arguments and disagreement don’t mean the end

Two people, living and breathing the same air… it is going to get out of hand. How you approach it is normally the issue. Don’t sweep it under the rag just so you can maintain the honey moon period. Avoidance has never helped because it builds up and giving in to someone never wins you any points eventually. Sit down and solve your issues from the go. Speak your mind so that someone understands you; there will not be any confusion or blurred lines. But it never means the end or you do not have to run around calling intervention groups. Keep your marriage tight and you will never have bigger problems later-more people always means more problems.

Space is allowed

Refer to the second paragraph. When a spouse asks for time out, that is not a bad thing. You don’t lose you because you now have someone else in your life. Couples need to understand that, so that when a partner wants to take a step back, you don’t see it as a problem. But now, you don’t do it every time there is an argument you say you need space. That is not nice.
