Before getting a driver's license, you need to learn how to drive a car and master the rules of the road. This is very important because a driver without these skills would be a huge danger to himself and others on the road. It's the same in marriage. Before you get married, you need to acquire certain skills, including emotional self-control, communication, conflict resolution, and positivism.
Young children often get angry, cry, or even beat their brothers and sisters. Adults are usually calm and level-headed. Those who cannot control their emotions should learn to do this as soon as possible. Do you know if you can control yourself? If you raise your voice or get angry more than once a week, you need to work on yourself.
In marriage, the ability to express your thoughts and feelings is important, in particular the ability to talk about things that bother you and the ability to actively listen. Constant complaints, criticism, or verbal attacks will quickly bring you into trouble in your marriage. Ignoring your partner's words, denying his opinion, constantly using the word "but", ignoring what he says can bring your relationship to a close end.
All married couples argue from time to time and have different opinions on a particular topic. However, a successful marriage can see the problem through the eyes of the partner and compromise. This applies to both minor problems, for example, choosing a movie in the cinema, and more serious ones, for example, how to manage your home budget.
Every time you smile at your partner, laugh at his jokes, agree with what he said, show appreciation, thank you for something, or show your love, you are bringing another dose of optimism into your marriage. The more of this positive attitude, the happier you both will be.
