When you see couples that are truly happy with each other, you can tell that they are really happy.
I am not talking of couples who have decided to live their lives not caring what happens to their spouses. Those ones have decided to be happy without their spouses.
I am also not talking about couples who derive their happiness by other means.
I am talking of genuinely happy couples, who have found their happiness in each others company, who celebrate each other’s differences and are proud to be who they are.
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
There is no fear in their relationship. They do not put each other on a pedestrian, comparing their spouse with some one else.
They have fully accepted each other. Each one is free to be who they are without any inhibitions.
The truth is that everybody owes himself or herself the privilege of being happy.
There are a lot of things in this world that aims at stealing our happiness.
One just has to try to keep his/her joy in tact.
Here are few ways to keep yourselves happy as a couple.
1. Accept your spouse and never attempt to change him/her.
Every spouse comes with their weaknesses, short comings and excesses. Yes, you wish your spouse can change for the better but they will do that at their own pace.
It is selfishness to want your spouse to be what you want them to be. They can only be what God wants them to be.
No one’s temperament is better than the other, but it is true we may be at different levels of being a better version of ourselves.
So work on yourself without putting pressure on your spouse to change at your own pace. At best pray for them.
We change as the Holy Spirit opens the eyes of our understanding and by God’s word.
I will continue from here tomorrow by God’s Grace.
God bless our marriages.
