Everyone strives for it, everyone wants it, but not many people have it?what is it? A happy marriage! Having a happy marriage is up to you and your willingness to work at it. Marriage is not always going to be like the fairytales we have been programmed to expect, but if you are willing to work at it, it can be very close to that!
Many times people get married thinking that they are going to continue living in the fantasy land they had when they were dating. What they do not consider sometimes is the fact that real life can be hard. Bills will come, kids will come and things will get difficult at times. Have you ever seen your boyfriend sick, or have you ever seen all his bad habits? Once you marry you will find out all of each other?s little secrets. Some things will make you laugh and others will get on your last nerve. Generally people are already set in their ways before they get married even if they are young. This is because we are all individuals and we all do things differently.
If you keep in mind the little things that will come up and bother you and are willing to love your spouse no matter what, you will have a happy marriage. You must be willing to compromise and work on things together as a team. I would recommend if you are thinking about getting married that you have some form of premarital counseling so that you can get started off on the right foot. You will learn a lot about each other during these types of counseling sessions.
