This year, I will be married ten years! TEN YEARS. This is a huge milestone for most. I often ask myself, what I would tell my younger self before getting married? There are many things I would ask myself, knowing what I now know. After all this thinking, I narrowed it down to three very important words because marriage is complicated so why make it more confusing?
Let’s ponder children, home life, pets, education, money, all elements that may come into a long term marriage. Yet all those things however important, do not keep the spark alive in all marriages (or partnerships). Marriage is so much more than just material aspects. A happy marriage is an investment and like a plant, it needs water to survive, a happy marriage sustains itself on things like love, communication and FUN. Yes, I also think fun is very important in a happy marriage. If you are in for the long haul, after children grow up, who is going to be by your side? A happy, loving, communicative and joyous partner.
LOVE is very important. I don’t mean just love in the traditional way, what I mean is love in the intimacy and physical aspect. Love is what keeps us connected, happy and alive. This Valentine’s I am trying out FIERA, a “Before-Play.” gadget that is used for a few minutes prior to sex and then removed once the woman is warmed up. I love that it is something new and exciting to try. FIERA has an offer for $50 off the purchase price plus free shipping! Moreover, you can sign up for the Relationship Refresh newsletter which includes 10 daily tips with ideas to respark your relationship intimacy. Who doesn’t need some tips in the intimacy department?
COMMUNICATION is a golden rule in every committed adult relationship. Without proper communication, marriages fail and things get misunderstood between partners. This is one aspect I’ve learned over the ten years I’ve been married. Both my husband and I constantly work on our communication because we realized how crucial it is to keep us happy and connected.
FUN in our lives is integral for a happy marriage. I am happy to report that since day one, I love having fun with my beloved. We have dates alone, enjoy travel and cooking together. Fun also means having that spark in our intimate moments and being able to laugh, try new things and the journey.
