Communication is the key to a happy married life. Both you and your better half should talk to each other at the end of the day, telling each other how the day went, sharing interesting stories and experiences, etc. Remember that you two are a team and therefore need to keep each other posted about your lives. If there is something that either you or your spouse are not happy with, go on and say it. Instead of being bitter about it, put it on the table when you two sit down for dinner. There is no better time to hold a discussion than dinner time. If the discussion begins to move into the direction of a heated argument, stop right there and return to it when you two are in a better mood.
Now that you two are married, there is no way you can keep each other’s family from visiting over. Dealing with the in-laws can be quite an ordeal, especially if they do not seem to like you very much for some reason or if you are paranoid. In order to prevent these visits from taking a toll on your married life, take each other in confidence before the families come to visit.
Just because you are married does not mean you stop having fun. In fact, you can have much more fun than before. Go out with your spouse on a date at least once a week. Go to the movies, spend time in the park, dine out, etc. The experience is bound to be more pleasurable since you do will not have to worry about going out of the way to impress your date or wondering what they think of you. You can feel much more relaxed and actually enjoy the date.
Keep the intimacy alive. A lot of married couples do not focus enough on remaining physically involved. This may be because of work stress, hectic routine, etc. Remember to rekindle the passion at least once a week, if not more often.
