When Two Hearts Beat As One: What A Good Marriage Is Supposed To Be Like

When Two Hearts Beat as One is a degree of closeness with our other half  that we would all like to aspire to (I assume here!).  What A Good Marriage Is Supposed To Be Like is just another depiction of that level of intimacy not just on a physical level but also on an emotional level.

It takes more than just love to make a marriage last, it takes communication, respect, and compromise. If you want your marriage to last, you need to be willing to work at it. Hopefully blog post will give you some tips on what you can do to make your marriage strong and lasting and make you aware of some of the signs of a healthy marriage.

  • Be kind and courteous to each other.
  •  Be a kind husband and a kind wife. When you are kind and courteous to each other, it will be easier for you to resolve any issue that may arise in your marriage. It will also help you bond together as a couple.
  •  Be nice to your spouse and be respectful of his/her needs.
  •  Commitment to One Another
  •  The first thing that you both need to do for your marriage to survive and thrive is to make a commitment to one another. There is a reason why people say that marriage is a commitment that lasts a lifetime. You have to decide to put this person before all of your other interests, everything. It is not easy, but it is what it is.
  •  Ephesians 4:32 – “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ, God forgave you.”
  •  The first and best tip I can give you is to be kind and compassionate to your spouse. Treat her with the same respect and love that you want to be treated with.

Why does a marriage matter?

 In order for a society to thrive, families must be stable. Our country was built from marriage.

 The Bible teaches that God designed marriage to be between a man and a woman. That is why He created man and woman in the first place (Genesis 2:18-25).

 Marriage is a commitment to live with another person and to share life. It is a sacred trust.

 I’ve seen women who have been married for years, saying that their marriage is falling apart. And when I was talking to them, I noticed that they never do anything to strengthen their relationship. They just wait for their husband to come home, hoping everything would be alright.

 This kind of mentality doesn’t work in a marriage. The husband doesn’t live in his partner’s head, so he can’t know what she wants.

 A good marriage is supposed to be built on love, trust, and communication. It takes two people who are committed to each other and willing to work together to make things work. A good marriage is a partnership, where both people are equally invested in making it successful. Communication is key in any relationship, but it’s especially important in a marriage. You need to be able to talk openly and honestly with your partner about everything , from the big stuff like finances and family planning ,to the little things that can make or break a relationship .

It takes more than just love to make a marriage last, it takes communication, respect, and compromise.

 If it takes more than just love to make a marriage last then what are the characteristics of a good marriage. It takes communication, respect, and compromise from both partners to make a good marriage work. Without these essential things, marriages can quickly fall apart. So what is a good marriage supposed to be like? One where both partners are committed to making it work and are willing to put in the effort required. They communicate openly and honestly with each other, respecting each other's opinions even if they differ.

If you want your marriage to last, you need to be willing to work at it.

 A good marriage is one in which both partners are committed to making things work, no matter what. That means being willing to communicate and compromise when necessary, and putting the relationship above all else. It also takes a lot of effort and patience; you can't just expect things to happen on their own. You need to be willing to put in the time and energy required to make your marriage strong.

"" You don't ever fight." contrary to what you might think, this in fact might be a warning sign that one of you does not care and not that the relationship is in a good place.

  •  If you never argue, never disagree, and never engage in an honest conversation with your spouse, then it's safe to say your marriage is weak. Healthy relationships, like healthy marriages, include discussions, disagreements and even arguments; it's a normal part of life.
  •  If you already know that you aren't putting in the work that a strong marriage requires, then you need to ask yourself if you are willing to change.
  •  If not, then you need to decide if you are willing to work on your marriage if your spouse is willing to do the same. If you both decide that you are willing to work on your marriage, then you should both agree to start doing the things that will contribute to making your marriage strong.
  •  If you are in a marriage where every single discussion ends up in an argument, then you need to ask yourself why.
  •  I know from experience that investing time and energy in a marriage is like paying a mortgage. It just keeps getting more expensive and more work.
  •  If you are like most couples, it takes at least a year to fully adjust to living together after you say “I do”.
  •  It starts with the honeymoon stage, which is the first few months where you are in love with each other.
  •  After this, the closeness and romance dies down. It's normal for couples to feel bored and want something more exciting.

 A husband and his trophy wife commit to their vows and work hard to build a strong relationship. But as time passes, the couples begin to lose that initial spark and excitement. The "in love" feeling starts to fade.

 If you want your marriage to last and grow, you must work hard to keep it alive.

Hopefully this blog post will make you reflect a little on what is your idea of a perfect marriage and what you can do to make it strong and lasting.

 A strong and lasting marriage is built on a foundation of love, trust, and mutual respect. While every relationship is unique, there are certain things that all healthy marriages have in common. Here are a few tips to help you create a strong and lasting marriage:
  1. Communicate openly and honestly with each other. This means being able to share your thoughts, feelings, needs, and wants with your partner without fear of judgement or criticism. It’s also important to be able to listen to your partner openly and without judgement or criticism.

“Many of us grew up in homes where we were afraid to share our true thoughts, feelings and wants in fear of hurting our parents or siblings. We learned not to be ‘selfish’ and to suppress our feelings. This can ultimately lead to us feeling ‘stuck’ in our relationships.

This takes practice. And it takes a heck of a lot of work to come to the point where you’re both dealing with your issues, rather than only sweeping them under the rug.

 You should also be able to bridge the gap between you and your partner and resolve issues. You’re not going to agree all the time and you’re not going to work out every issue. But that doesn’t mean you each shouldn’t try.

 Mutual trust is something that is built over time, and is the cornerstone of any good relationship.

 Acceptance: This is the ability to be yourself around your partner, without fear of judgement. When you know that you are accepted for who you are, it encourages you to grow and be the best person you can possibly be. It also means that there is no need for you to hide your true self.

 Listening is not the same as hearing. Hearing is the physical act of listening, whereas listening is truly engaging with the other person. This means showing your counterpart that you understand what they are saying, and not just taking in their words for the sake of hearing them.

 Honesty is key to good communication. This means being honest with your partner about the way you are feeling, and being honest about your wants and needs.

 When it comes to intimate relationships, it’s important to be able to be open with one another and be able to express both positive and negative emotions, as well as be able to share your hidden thoughts and feelings with one another.

 This brings me to the next communication skill: how to communicate your needs without being controlling or manipulative, we will explore this in another blog post as I think it would be very worthwhile and who knows where that rabbit whole might lead us.

 If all this talk about marriage, coupling for life, communication and feelings has made you feel reflective on your relationship, you can always check out our range of necklaces we have on offer as a possible physical token of appreciation for your better half. Enjoy and till next time.
