You meet two people and it is so obvious they are in love.
In your mind you are thinking , ” this is so cute, most likely they are planning their wedding.”
A few minutes later you start chatting with them, only to find out they have been married for almost 10 years and even have children.
So what comes to mind next?
Maybe a question such as: ” How do you build lasting love relationships?” or ” How do you nurture marriage relationships”?
I remember as a young girl I used to wonder how love can last forever. I had questions on what it takes to build a strong relationship.
Long before I got married, I started paying attention to people with admirable marriage relationship just to learn what they do differently that make their marriage beautiful. I also started feeding off materials on the subject. One thing I have realized is that since we are all different, there is no “one size fit all” approach to relationships. However, there are general principles that cuts across the board and form the bedrock of strong relationships.
One key principle that I have learnt is TRUST.
Trust is the foundation of all successful relationships. Nothing could be more disheartening than to find out that your partner is completely different from who you thought he/she was.
You are not perfect.
Guess what? No one is.
Love who you are, don’t try to be someone else.
Instead, work at becoming the best “you” you can possibly be. Just as you are not perfect, your partner is not perfect either. Accept him/her the way he/she is and grow together.
