Did you know that traveling with your husband should be on top of your list? Vacations with your partner can be challenging because you will surely experience lots of adventures that will eventually made you closer together but can also be stressful in planning, budgeting, where to go and what to do. You may also be able to ignore your partner’s annoying bad habits at home because traveling together with those habits will become more noticeable since you will be with him/her for 24/7. Make sure to pack snacks and try getting enough sleep like 8 hours a day to avoid irritable arguments. As a traveler, I suggest you to plan your trip together ahead of time because rushing can lead to stress and can cause tension to the both of you. As we all know, traveling with a single itinerary can cause a lot of trouble that can ruin a trip or even a relationship. Our main purpose is to enjoy each other’s company without driving each other crazy so identifying your differences before planning a trip on how to handle and respect each other’s differences without nagging your partner can be a bit challenging. Make sure that both of you are involved in the decision-making process. Personally, my spouse and I already tried an unplanned vacation with a friend of ours 2 years ago. Our main purpose is to tour the city but ended up shopping together because my husband knew that I was so sad without our children but then again I still enjoyed our trip together because I learned a lot of lesson and I learn to live with our differences by accepting my spouse whole heartedly because I believe changing his bad habits can only lead to more petty fights. A happy marriage is about accepting your partner, being supportive and being nice. Make sure to balance the positive and negative side of your partner but of course, more on the positive side. You have to do nice things more often but at the same time harder especially when you are really angry or when something happened for the 20th time. Nevertheless, the balance must always be greater on the positive side to have a happy and lasting marriage.
A happy marriage only mean respecting your spouse. Most marriage conflicts involves issues around in-laws and children as we all know blaming the issue gets more critical and solving the problem doesn’t really matter. You just have to accept everything and think positive as if nothing happened. The truth is, conflicts is common on marriages and healthy one is OK but how to deal with it is what matters in a happy marriage. You have to talk calmly and try to resolve it when you’re not angry or when you are ready to face your spouse bring it up in an unthreatening way. Try to stay calm because studies show by doing this, you will be treated seriously and consider your spouse’s opinion and suggestion if you really want a truly happy marriage.
