Secrets to a Happy Marriage

Ah, may be this is going to disappoint you but there are no secrets of a happy marriage!

It’s because the happiness in a marriage is simply a product of your individual happiness levels and the extent of togetherness.

You marry someone because you love the person, and obviously you want to be a happily married couple.

However, even if you’re happy you cannot make your partner truly happy if that happiness doesn’t come from within him or her.

You can share your happiness with your partner, but you can’t impose that happiness, nor try to direct his or her happiness.

Since marriage implies a union, there has to be togetherness among the spouses. If the couple lacks togetherness, they would not be happy.

Now that you know the secrets of a happy marriage, which never was a secret, what do you do to live a happy married life?
