Dance like no one is watching, Blog like no one is reading



I don’t think I’m the best one to discuss this matter, since I haven’t experienced it yet, but after seeing some “Angry” people, and others “lost” , I decided to go ahead and write about it and god help me to do this right.

The issues that bloggers had been talking about lately really got me thinking, “what really makes a marriage happy?” … I spend the whole afternoon trying to put this post together, I tried so hard to set this list, so guys your input is more than welcome to this list, is will be constantly updated.

1. Saying “I Love You” works. Say it as often as you want.

2. Remember, the more you give is the more you get.

3. Do not ignore yourself. Looking good for each other makes you want to be closer emotionally and physically.

4. Never yell at each other unless the house is on fire. Learn to explain your angry feelings decently.

5. Exchange gifts for no reason once in a while.

6. Go out alone at least once a month. If you have small kids, leave them with a friend, family or a sitter.

7. Create fun evenings, play silly games or read comics together.

8. Surprise your spouse by doing something special and unexpected.

9. Show affection and be liberal with your hugs and kisses. These small actions demonstrate the love inside you.

10. Neglect the whole world rather than each other.

11. Give each other a massage. Use massage oils, candlelight and soft music.

12. Never bring up issues from the past. Discuss one subject at a time.

13. Forget your ego. Don’t wait for your partner to initiate something.

14. When you make a mistake, be ready to admit it and ask for forgiveness.

15. Try to be each other’s soul mate.

16. If you have to criticize, do it lovingly.

17. Don’t take each other for granted. Be generous with compliments like “You are great!”, “good food”, “Hi Handsome” etc.

18. Go to the park for long walks, hand in hand.

19. Say it! Don’t imagine your partner knows how you feel. He/she is not a god

20. Remembering how to communicate with each other. Share your dreams of the future, your day-to-day thoughts; let your partner share in your business successes and your failures.

21. Keep your relationship a number one priority. If you don’t take care of it, it can’t take care of you. Make time for each other.

22. Don’t sweat the small stuff. Don’t hold a grudge. If you have an issue, talk about it after you have had some time to cool down. If you feel that you have been insulted or your feelings have been hurt, let your partner know.

    Maioush!!! mish ma32oul!! like mala2e6 said, all of this and you have NO experience?? you will make a great wife!! Yalla shabab….move into the right direction.
    i would add to number one, “1. Saying “I Love You” works. Say it as often as you want.” i would say saying I love you is not enough if you do not mean it from the heart!
    wonderful post…is this an answer to Kinzi’s marriage tag?

  3. She used to say all of that, and more.

  4. kinziblogs says:

    Maioushka habbeebit ‘albi, inti zakiya! Ma azkaki, what delights await your husband to have a wife so committed to his best! Summer said it best “yella, ya shabaab!”

    Thanks for this investment of time and energy. I knew the marriage posts would benefit the nearly-marrieds, but to think it caused some singles to think further is a greater joy for me.

    #16 I would use a different word than criticise, or maybe ‘constructive criticism’, very fine line there.

  5. nice post and points Maioush…dunno if u read Sam’s post about the same subject, that was so touching too 🙂
