    Please share some healthy marriage tips and articles.
    81 Views
    Keep doing the little things that you did at the beginning of a relationship to show them that you were thinking about them, like a text message or note on the fridge. Listen - really listen - when they talk. Too often we switch off and think of other things. Be open to your partners suggestions and ideas, even if you don't think they will work. You might be surprised. Share a bath - it'll make you feel like kids again. Have a date night, even if you can't afford to eat out. You could just set the table nicely, with candles, etc. and sit and enjoy each other's company.

    86 Views
    I would ask friends and family for references. Alternatively, your church, community centre or doctor could also give you the names of some they are familiar with. You could look online if you want more privacy, but you never know how reliable the websites are. But of course if you findthe therapist doesnt help you, you dont have to keep returning either.

    How to get help with marriage problems and solve them?
    131 Views
    It is true - many couples struggle needlessly because they are too embarrassed to ask for help. They feel that it is a sign of weakness and failure. But you can't get help unless you reach out. It could be to a trustworthy relative or friend, a minister or priest in your church, or a professional therapist. The longer you leave things, the worse they will get. Act quickly, sort out the problem and enjoy your married life again.

    How much is couples counseling reliable?
    78 Views
    You need to find a counsellor you can relate to and trust. Try to go to one who has been personally recommended to you by a friend. Make sure you feel comfortable with them and the environment. The rest is up to you and your spouse. If you work with the counsellor and your spouse to find solutions, it will be effective. If one partner is argumentative and defensive, it will be less productive.

    78 Views
    Going to marriage counselling shows that you are both prepared to work on the relationship. It helps to have a neutral third party to keep the peace if tempers get frayed. They will also ask questions which might give you a different perspective on the problem. And you may hear your spouse talking about things and realise that you had no idea he felt that way about them.

    Can you tell me how to propose?
    172 Views
    The more complicated it is, the more that can go wrong. So sometimes the simplest is best. You could consider taking part in an outing together, like a cycle ride in the country with a picnic lunch in a pretty spot. One-day horse riding trails can be suitable for all levels of skill, and they often stop along the way somewhere for lunch at a cosy restaurant. Take her to the zoo and propose in front of her favourite animals. The fact that you tried to make it special will mean a lot to her.

    How should I understand what a relationship means?
    112 Views
    Being in a relationship means balancing freedom with commitment to another person. You still need enough freedom to remain yourself and be individual. In relationships you have to keep focusing on the right things to make it work. Understand that women usually want men to listen to them while men may want woman to spend time doing something with them, like watching a football game. Be patient with one another. Don’t expect your partner to be perfect. Share your feelings and thoughts with them. Also share your secret hopes and dreams. It builds closeness.

    Are single people more happy than married couples?
    A study carried out in Canada says that married couples felt supported against stress from work pressure as well as enjoying help with looking after children or aging parents. It helps if the couples saw their partner as their 'best friend'. There's a lot of stress in middle age. Having someone to talk to about it and having support in difficult times can help explain why it's easier for people with a partner. But there are people who are ``single at heart´´ and for them it is better to be alone.

    116 Views
    Trust is the single most important ingredient in a relationship. You need to know that your partner’s intentions are honourable. Some practical ides when you want to have a trust-building session: sit facing each other; hold hands; be totally honest, but do it gently; don’t withhold information; don’t be judgemental: do not attack; apologise sincerely when needed; ask what you can do to restore your partner’s trust; tell your partner that you love them; seek help for issues that you can’t resolve together on your own.

    What are the signs after separation that reveals my marriage is worth saving?
    396 Views
    Separation can give both parties time to think and to decide whether their relationship is worth saving. It can help a couple to realise that they miss each other and would rather be together even if it means trying to sort out their differences. They may also realise that it is not so great to be single again, and in fact can be quite lonely. It may just give them space to restore and rebuild themselves, to get the strength and perseverance they need to tackle problems again.

    My wife had an affair in past and I can't overcome that truth. Need tips that can help me to start afresh.
    Broken trust is the hardest thing in the world to overcome. How can you have a good relationship with anyone if you don’t know if they are telling you the truth? The first thing to decide is whether or not you want to continue with your marriage. If you do, then you must be prepared that it will take time to rebuild it. Insist that she has nothing more to do with that person. Don’t try to act like nothing has happened. No matter how much it hurts, talk about the affair. Don’t take the blame for the cheating. Your partner may try to shift some of the guilt onto you. Don’t expect to get over this easily. Don’t let your spouse tell you that you are being obsessive or harping on about it – take as long as you need.

    Please tell me how to plan for a honeymoon?
    Although it might sound romantic to plan a surprise honeymoon, it is probably better to discuss it with your future spouse. Avoid school holidays and expensive times of the year like Christmas. The accommodation will also be over-crowded and over-priced. Discuss how far you are prepared to go and how long you are prepared to travel after the wedding ceremony. You may find out-of-the-way places close to home. It is probably better to use a travel agent to ensure that all goes well.

    Some of the most common problems in Christian marriages include broken trust, frequent arguing, adultery, jealousy, forgiveness, mothers-in-law, money, different beliefs, and unrealistic expectations. Christians often expect their marriage to be trouble-free and are shocked to realise that they are also just two imperfect people who also need to work on themselves and their relationship.

    255 Views
    If you fell pregnant unexpectedly, it could cause problems in your relationship. Either one of you may not be thrilled to be pregnant at this time. If the husband suspects that the wife fell pregnant deliberately without discussing it with him it can lead to serious problems. Even if you both wanted the baby, it can lead to stress. The responsibility can seem overwhelming. Fears of financial commitment can be scary. Difficult childhood may make an adult feel that they are unfit to be a parent. There may be fears of passing on a genetic condition. A husband can feel left-out if the wife is pre-occupied with the pregnancy.

    How to save a relationship from break up?
    Make a list of all the issues which you disagree about, including the issues that avoid out of fear that talking might lead to arguing. Focus on yourself. Trying to get your partner to change provokes defensiveness. No more criticism, complaints, blame, accusations, etc. Stay calm. Learn how to discuss concerns constructively and make good decisions.

    What are the signs that shows that you are pregnant?
    92 Views
    One of the first signs seems to be swollen and sore breasts. Morning sickness is another common sign, though some women experience nausea throughout the day, for the entire period of their pregnancy. Ginger tea may help with this. I don´t want to repeat what has already been said, so I will add some other symptoms. Women suddenly go off foods, like coffee. Things smell different to them. They may get cravings for certain foods. Because of hormonal swings, there could be an increase in headaches or migraines. Mood swings are common.

    What is love? Is it the strongest emotion in the world?
    I agree with Ceuvas definition of love. I would say that it is the strongest positive motion in the world, followed by faith and hope. The Bible has one of the best definitions of real love that I know, in 1 Corinthians 13. It says love is patient, kind, patient, wants what is best for the other person, doesn’t hold grudges and never ends. Unfortunately there are also very strong negative emotions which are extremely destructive, like jealousy and anger.

    What is mature dating? Can you give some tips?
    92 Views
    Dating again when you are older is scary. More mature people are more secure in who they are but also aware that they are older and perhaps don't feel as attractive as they once did. At this age people are looking for genuine people, no pretenders or time-wasters. They will only become committed to someone if they feel that their life will be enriched by the relationship, otherwise they would prefer to be alone.

    What is fertility treatment and how is it done?
    72 Views
    You have a number of choices. Your doctor will offer a variety of treatment plans. Fertility drugs: If you lack sufficient hormones or they are out of balance these drugs can get your reproductive system working properly again. They are for men or women. Intrauterine insemination: This involves placing a concentrated sample of sperm directly in your uterus at the proper time to improve your odds of getting pregnant. It can be done with or without fertility drugs. Surgery: If you have a physical problem, a type of minor surgery can help clear the way for you to conceive. Assisted reproductive technology (ART): eggs and sperm are handled outside the body. Occasionally your age or ovary function may require you to use an egg donor. You might think about using a surrogate.

    What do the traditional vows of marriage say?
    Traditional vows vary in the exact wording, but basically you are promising to forsake all others to remain true to your partner, to love and cherish them in good times and in bad times and that you will stay together until one of you dies. The Lutheran vows include forgiving one another as god has forgiven us, and trying to understand your partner as well as yourself, the world and God. Jewish vows are similar. Muslim vows promise to be a faithful and helpful/obedient spouse. Hindus do not take vows but have 7 steps they follow.

    What are the best wedding gifts for the groom?
    Personalise a watch, money clip, cuff links or leather wallet. An engraved commitment band is also a nice idea. Choose something that has to do with a hobby he loves, such as an elegant corkscrew or really nice fishing equipment. Choose something from where you first met or from your first date.

    What are the best marriage gifts for the bride?
    107 Views
    Do you mean gifts from the groom or from friends? I wasn't sure so I chose gifts in general that I thought the bride would like. A scrapbook of photos and personal items is priceless as it shows you have put love and thought into it. Or a collage of photographs in a decorative frame, ready to be hung up in their new home, is also a lovely idea. If you want something a little more traditional, a really pretty flowery tea set is perfect. Other ideas include jewellery using her birthstone, a gift basket of pamper items, or a voucher for a day at a spa.

    How do you express anger? How do you show love? Are you affectionate or do you hate shows of affection in public? How should children be raised? How involved should the in-laws be in our lives? What would you do in life if money wasn’t an issue? What are the things on your ``bucket list´´? What makes you angry? What makes you sad? What makes you happy?

    Tell me some innovative ideas to say 'Will you marry me'?
    You will want it to be memorable and perfect as well as suited to your girlfriend. Here are some ideas: go to the place you first met or where you had your first date; hang the ring in a present on the tree at Christmas-time; hold a scavenger hunt, with the ring at the end-point: hang a banner a window at work or from her apartment: pay a street busker to sing ``your song´´ as you walk past and then drop onto one knee in the street: write in the snow or beach sand.
