As 2-month-newly-weds, it seems there’s SO much we’ve learned! Starting from before the actual wedding – try and place most of your focus on the marriage that you will be in for decades – and less on the actual wedding which will only last a few hours.

Form your own traditions – I snuggle my husband awake every morning, he puts my hot water bottle in my bed every night after I’ve showered.

Make time for just the two of you. Week nights are usually tired-nights, weekends are often packed with social and family activities. At least once a month, make a “you” weekend- where you just spend time together – whether it’s catching up on series, going for a walk or a drive.

I’ve liked, commented and Tweeted! x

Communication is key. Always make time to talk and say I love you often. Fight fair, choose your words wisely, don’t waste your time arguing about money, at the end of it you will still be broke.

Always remember the tenderness of his eyes as they fell upon you on your wedding day – they take you a long way. When things are a little rough it helps to remember that moment. Have fun, fight and love each other – do all of them fiercely…xx

Married for just over 1 year :) Always remember why you fell in Love with each Other … Keep that Spark alive , Never go to bed Angry with each Other..My Hubby always says “Walk along Side me , Not ahead or Behind… “But beside me” ….

My top tip for a successful marriage is to keep a sense of humour as part of your communication (another key element) so that you don’t take everything so seriously and add an element of fun to your relationship. It’s certainly helped us reach our 11th anniversary.

My tip is: Keep it fresh, be kind and generous, expand your perspectives every day, be curious, embrace life with everyone in it, remain humble, considerate and grateful. Whether your in or not in a romantic relationship doesn’t matter.

My Tip: Put God First in your marriage…..EVERYTHING else will fall into place as GOD is in control:)

We’ve been married 11 amazing years.

My tip is: remain best friends, don’t go to bed angry, refine your listening skills and remain your own person. It is amazing how after 11 years I can still look at my husband and think “I’m married to my best friend”.


9 Micaela June 26, 2013 at 9:58 am

I never learned about compromise before I was married :p I may have thought I did, but not really. My husband and I are as different as two people can be, but here is a lesson that we have learned together; no matter what, who, where or why, you can always get through it TOGETHER. As long as you remind yourself of that every time there is a bump or hurdle, you will always find your way.

Its not always going to moonlight and roses. Fights are bound to happen so invest time and effort into making your marriage as strong as possible and keeping the lines of communication open and build on your friendship with each other.


11 Amanda June 28, 2013 at 2:40 pm

Never stop holding hands, never go to bed angry and tell each other “I love you” everyday <3

After celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary yesterday, my husband and I are blessed to have a happy and fulfilling marriage. He is still the one who makes my heart skip a beat when I see him, who causes me to glow when he looks at me, who is my lover and best friend with whom I want to spend time above anyone else.
We believe that a marriage relationship is like an eternal fire that you have to care for all the time. It needs tending everyday, putting on enough firewood (love, attention, compassion, patience, passion, excitement, friendship, togetherness, apart-ness) to keep it burning merrily. Neglecting it will cause it to flicker out and die. Putting in too much at a time will choke it down to smoke and ashes.
This has worked for us for 4 decades!

We’ve been married for almost 4 years now and I’ve found that letting each other have their own space for the things you love to do, be it a day alone to his thoughts, you have more respect for each other and really enjoy the time you do have together. Also sharing the kiddie duties helps a lot and knowing you can count on one another when u need the help.


15 Bianca J July 10, 2013 at 12:09 pm

We will be celebrating our 1 year anniversary next month. The advice our minister gave us has really stuck with us, and I love it.

Kiss you partner for 10 seconds every night when you are in bed and before you go to sleep.

It sounds silly, but it really works. You can’t continue to be mad at someone while you are kissing them, so it really helps to leave all that day’s baggage behind before you fall asleep.


16 Ilze July 12, 2013 at 8:02 am

In marriage, embrace each other’s talents and passions and let each other live out their talents or passions!

After 14 years of marraige, and years of fun, a lot of tears, and such precious moments – my tips is; remember the triangle, the top is God, the bottom two angles is you and your hubby, the closer you stay with your faith, the closer He draws you to each other! And the last tip, never forget to notice the small things, even the most hard headded man – will show love in small actions, you just got to notice………


18 Andrea July 17, 2013 at 9:41 am

My advice for is to appreciate the little things you do for each other as it isn’t always in the big gestures; share the kiddies duties and give him a BIG hug everytime he changes those nappies, laugh as much as you can and keep that spark alive; communication is a biggie as i felt we drew apart if we didnt talk bout our goals and focuses and what we wanted from life, and most of all remember God is most important in your relationship and through Him all things are possible

I have been married for 1/2 a year (6 months) and it’s been quite the learning experience. My marriage tip would be to find a balance when it comes to activities you did before you got married and the ones you will add when you are married – this can help you not to get overwhelmed with the LONG to-do list in which at times you end up not being able to fulfill (speaking from experience). Balance out fun time, personal time, family time, hobby/activity time and household duties time. I am still learning too and I am enjoying all these comments! They have added such value to me – I am glad I entered this competition (I feel like I have already won my prize) Thank you all!!!

Marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.


22 Karin Johns July 17, 2013 at 10:44 pm

The best tip I can give is to realise that love is not always a rosy feeling, but sometimes takes action and commitment to last past the harder days, and believe me me, the will be testing times to any marriage. Communication, diplomacy and willingness to really SEE your partner also makes any relationship deeper.
