There are no laid-down rules to make any marriage successful but a lot of things can be avoided to make it last longer. The differences between the couple make the relationship interesting but the similarities between them make it enjoyable.
The following tips, if avoided can make your marriage last longer and ultimately be successful.
1. DO NOT DARE YOUR HUSBAND TO BEAT YOU.
A lot of women go as far as blocking the door way, thereby daring their husband to beat them up. Quarrel must come but please avoid blocking his way, it proves him more and you can regret the end.
2. DO NOT DARE YOUR HUSBAND TO SLEEP WITH ANOTHER WOMAN
This should be avoided like a plague. Men are created and shouldn’t be tested with a woman. Don’t even bring it up as a topic of discussion because you may not like the result at the end.
3. DO NOT IGNORE YOUR BODY AND LOOKS BECAUSE YOU ARE MARRIED
You may say “I am married, let me relax, after all who’s looking at me”? Yes, he may have married you slim, sexy, does that mean you should become shapeless and dirty after marriage? There’s no guarantee that he won’t go after the same slim and sexy clean lady outside if you continue with that feeling of “am married now”. Be clean and sexy for him.
4. DO NOT DENY YOUR HUSBAND SEX ALWAYS
“I am a career woman or an overly religious woman”. Do you feel sex in marriage is secondary? If you deny him sex, he gets starved but do you think his secretary, colleagues or any of his female friends can’t give it to him anyhow he likes? Do not starve him
5. DO NOT LEAVE YOUR HUSBAND FOR YOUR FEMALE FRIEND TO LOOK AFTER
Some women are guilty of this. “Please help me look after my husband and kids for this one week I’ll be away”. Surely, if your friend finds your husband so attractive, she’ll indeed take care of him, even in bed and you’ll hear the rest later”. Please avoid it.
6. DO NOT LEAVE YOUR HUSBAND IN THE HANDS OF YOUR MAID
You may be very busy, but not when it comes to what your husband eats. The maid cooks, cleans the house, washes his clothes and you’ve suddenly become lazy since her arrival. Hmm… Very dangerous
7. DO NOT TELL YOUR FRIENDS ABOUT YOUR SEX LIFE
You are busy telling your friends what turns your husband on, how he rocks you and how he whispers sweet words to you, I pity you. They will surely want to have a feel of him my dear. Please avoid it, a lot have lost their husbands this way.
8. DO NOT REPORT YOUR HUSBAND TO HIS MUM
You feel you’re very close to his mum and you feel comfortable reporting him to her? Remember, blood will always be thicker than water. When the chips are down, she will flow with the son and you’ll be the odd one. Handle and resolve your issues together and be happy
9. ALWAYS COMMIT YOUR WAYS INTO GOD’S HANDS
A prayerful wife makes a good home. By strength shall no man prevail. If you marry the wrong person, you have a prayer point, but if you marry the right person, you become prayer partner!
God bless you.
