Rules for a Happy Marriage



Found this on FB and wanted to share with all the couples in the whole wide world. :D

1) Never both be angry at the same time.

2) Never yell at each other unless the house is on fire.

3) If one of you has to win an argument, let it be your mate.

4) If you have to criticize, do it lovingly.

5) Never bring up mistakes of the past.

6) Neglect the whole world rather than each other.

7) Never go to sleep with an argument unsettled.

8) At least once everyday, try to say one kind and complimentary thing to your life's partner.

9) When you have done something wrong, be ready to admit it and ask for forgiveness.

10) It takes two to make a quarrel, and the one in the wrong is the one who does the most talking.

Rule no. 1, 2 and 3 are sums up to one thing: anger management. For rule no. 4, here's my take: Me to hubby: You are so hug-gable with your big and soft-like-pillow tummy whilst encircling my arms on him and lean my head on his tummy. *insert silly grin*

I am pretty good at following rule no. 5 (or so I thought, haha) while the hubby follows no. 6 rule very strictly. I have to say number seven is the ultimate rule and it's one of our secrets in keeping the marriage healthy.

We have to work on rule no. 9 because we don't really do it every single day. Another secret of ours: following rule number 9. Rule no. 10, is that a rule or a fact? Haha!


Stay in love and keep it burning!

xoxo
