Knowing what makes marriage work is simple to understand. You have to
just do the simple things required to make marriage work. Successful
marriage is an accumulation of doing the simple things day in and day

When it comes to marriage, the measure of success or failure by what the couple does has little to do with the final outcome.  You may however determine the success of marriage by the way a couple overcomes hardship or change within a marriage as a factor.  There is not a recipe for a good marriage, things change, people make decisions to react to those changes & sometimes it does not work out.  Sometimes, however the married couple finds a way to grow together and face their challenges together & then there is a good chance that the marriage will survive.

Relationships are never meant to be broken. One should understand this and should do his/her best to make it beautiful and evergreen. But, now a days people are taking relationships for granted, which end up with breaking. Till we have it, we do not value it. But the day it breaks, you cash its value and wish to make it all over again.

To me, its seems that a few key ingredients are needed to make a marriage work.

A mutual respect for one another, AKA: understanding that its YOUR life, THEIR life, and then your lives TOGETHER. This means not trying to stiffle the others life by doing things like controlling who they still choose to be friends with, hobbies they have, and the like. If these things are issues the person is not willing to change or alter in anywayeven though youve made it clear that these things make you uncomfortable or effect your life together in a negitive way, then marriage should be out of the question until that time. You had a life before they came along just as they did before you, and you will have a life after them, should breaking up ever happen and no one should try to make it seem like "now that you came into my life, i exist only for you" thats a red flag right there.


Growing together as a couple: people change through the years, this is something that is pretty much unavoidable. The best thing you both can do to stay together is to change WITH the person, and make sure to still make sure that no matter HOW your lives change that in your mind, they are still number one. This is a two way street though, so if their not doing this for you in return then theres an problem.


Getting married "too young" isnt nessasarily a guage to weather or not the marriage can work if you are comfortable with who you are and have been since before they came along. a strong sense of self really helps here because your partner will know ahead of time what they can and cannot ask of you relationship wise, and will know that "youd say hell no we're not doing this or that" before even asking you. So knowing each others boundries is an important one to know even BEFORE marriage.


temperments: If one or both of you have built in impatience, then this can be a major issue. Your willingness to just STOP and listen to your partner and take the time to try to understand what they are going through/where they are coming from/and weather its from a place of love or its a bad place is important. No one should to be a doormat for their partner, marriage is a team effort between two people that claimed at the alter to want to make it work FOREVER.  So personailitys and WANTING to make the other person happy in a healthy way/productive way, is important.

It goes with the saying "It takes TWO to tango". In marriage, it's all about commitment and for that to work and lasts, both party (husband and wife) should work it out together. For richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health, till death do you part weren't just created to be uttered but to be acted upon.
