Our society is one based on short attention spans and even shorter relationships. Divorce rates are higher than ever, and it may sometimes seem impossible to stay with the same man for 30 years, much less 3.
However, there are many relationships that last for 30 years or more. Studies have found that these relationships aren’t perfect. Both partners have their own problems, but there are certain things that help determine the success of a long-term relationship that you should pay attention to.
Divorce seems like a great option when you are fighting with your husband a lot. Every marriage has its issues, and divorce is becoming a common fix that really isn’t fixing anything. Long-term marriages are often more successful when both people enter it honestly saying that this is till death do us part.
If both people are averse to divorce, then this often leads both people to find better ways of resolving issues that would otherwise lead to a divorce. This doesn’t mean that you should avoid divorce if there are major issues like abuse, cheating or drug use, but it shouldn’t be over common arguments and annoyances.
Some people fear marriage because they think that it’s the beginning of the end for their sex life, but research has found that it’s actually the opposite.
Married couples often have sex more than singles, and this is one of the secrets to having a marriage last for more than 30 years.
Sex is easy at first for women, but you will likely experience vaginal dryness and looseness after many years.
Don’t distress! There are many things that can fix this issue so that both of you can continue having good sex even 30 years from now.
The two most common fixes are Kegel exercises and personal lubrications. If these don’t work, then there are certain operations, and many couples find that a regular visit to a sex therapist can also be very beneficial.
Don’t Expect Perfection
Everyone thinks marriage is great. You’ll find your soul mate, things will be great forever and the honeymoon period will never end. The fact is that every marriage is going to have problems.
There are certain things your husband will do that will get on your nerves. He’ll snore, take the game too seriously, sing badly in the shower and he’ll have one weird interest that you’ll never understand.
These are just some of the common problems that you’ll have to expect, but there’s nothing wrong with that. A perfect marriage is a dull one. It’s one where both people give up their individuality so that they act just like each other. If you want a happy marriage for 30 years of more, then give each other some acceptance here and there.
Sure, you may never understand why your husband does something, but understand that it’s who he is. If you get the same in return, then you really do have the perfect marriage.
Marriage doesn’t mean the end of dating. In fact, it just means that you have to try harder to keep the romance burning. You should keep going to movies, renting hotel rooms if you have kids and going out to clubs and parties to have fun.
If you keep dating and keep trying to impress each other, then your marriage is going to last a long time. Only marriages that get stagnant and boring tend to become dissatisfying because you’re seeing the same person day in and day out.
Marriage is great, but it can be a fragile thing. If you want it to last for 30 years of more, then you need to learn these secrets.
Sex is important to any relationship, and both of you need to be ready to be different people and to not accept divorce as a way out. Also, never stop dating to keep the relationship fun and exciting. If you do these things, then your marriage should last a good long while.
