I was just visiting with one of my favorite married couples today. Now you need to know that when it comes to influence and persuasion, I take at least 10% credit for their marrying. Because the husband was a confirmed, “I’m never marrying again!” post divorced guy. (very handsome by the way, and yes, remember he is taken).
What are some of the lessons to learn from them and other happily married couples for long term relationship and marriage success?
Keep It Real
Get Out of Dodge
Keeping It Real:
One of the differences in marriage versus early dating is that a husband and wife will see each other when they look their worst. When you have the flu. Runny red nose. Worshiping the porcelain god…. And they still love you. Now this is in contrast to those ensembles we were in our early dates. And yes, I agree with Custom Formal wear designer, Vicki Hanson, “that life is fun, dress for it.” And yet there are days and times when a ball gown, full make up, dress pumps, or a gentleman’s evening jacket are not called for. We want a spouse to love us completely, even when we are our most vulnerable looking.
Additionally, we need to remember to
Get Out of Dodge:
At the end of the weekend, the end of the work week, the end of a tough or busy day, for whatever reason, couples need to continue to expand their lives and get out of the house, go out for a drink and practice their body language flirting, wear a broad shoulders accentuating jacket, gentlemen, and where the ladies can dress up a bit, feel special like on an early romantic date. And simply get out of the house.
Indeed, the wooing behavior of early courtship couples is a great long-term success Relationship Success tip for married couples. To nurture their continued cherishing of each other.
So when flu season hits, you still feeling loving, tender, and intimate together.
