Twelve Rules For A Happy Marriage

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, there is no better time than now to think about friendships, relationships, love, and marriage.  Of course everyone wants to be loved and appreciated all the time, but Valentine’s Day is a perfect time to express it in a very special way.

I came across this article a very long time ago, saved it, and decided to post it at this special time of the year, when so much love is in the air.  I don’t know who the author is, or even where I originally got it from, but would love to share it with all my readers, especially my children, nieces, nephews, and their loved ones.

Twelve Rules For A Happy Marriage:

  1. Never both be angry at once.
  2. Never yell at each other unless the house is on fire.
  3. Yield to the wishes of the other as an exercise in self-discipline, if you can’t think of a better reason.
  4. If you have a choice between making yourself or your mate look good, choose    your mate.
  5. If you feel you must criticize, do so lovingly.
  6. Never bring up a mistake of the past.  Your silence will be greatly appreciated.
  7. Neglect the whole world rather than each other.
  8. Never let the day end without saying at least one complimentary thing to your life’s partner.
  9. Never meet without an affectionate greeting.
  10. When you’ve said or done something hurtful, acknowledge it and ask for forgiveness.
  11. Remember, it takes two to get an argument going.  Invariably the one who is wrong is the one who will be doing most of the talking.
  12. Never go to bed mad.

If you memorize these twelve rules (or print, frame, and display in your bedroom), and apply them to your everyday life, you both will always grow together, and never apart, you and your spouse will be best friends forever, and your home will be a happy place to live in.

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!!
