My clients frequently ask me: “How do I know my marriage is a good marriage?” Of course, every marriage is different. For example, haven’t you ever told yourself, “I could never be married to my friend’s spouse?”
Yes, even being married to someone you love, respect, and cherish includes days where you would like it very much if your spouse would go away for a few days.
Put those moments aside and concentrate instead on this tested and trusted list of top signs of a good marriage.
Make a note of which attributes of a good marriage you need to improve—and discuss those issues together.
Explain what is bothering you. But keep in mind that disagreements and disappointments are handled best when you act with kindness and a mindset of focusing as quickly as possible on a shared solution rather than blame and anger.
So, if you have ever wondered ‘do I have a good marriage’? Here are ten signs of what does a good marriage look like.
You feel lucky to have found each other. You can’t imagine being with anyone else.
You have developed effective and kind ways of dealing with hot topics, such as spending, and you arrive at a course of action without blaming, accusing, or dismissing your spouse’s point of view.
If you feel disconnected or frustrated about the state of your marriage but want to avoid separation and/or divorce, the marriage.com course meant for married couples is an excellent resource to help you overcome the most challenging aspects of being married.
