Getting married is a choice so also is staying committed in a marriage. Aside having a companion, there are so many other reasons people get married. While knowing for a fact that you really cannot tell what married life would turn out to be, humans both male and female still take a bold risk tying the knot to one partner for the rest of their lives.
Irrespective of so many home wreck stories we hear today, what are those things a modern day couple can do to stay committed to their spouse?
How to Stay Committed to your Spouse
Determine in your heart:
When you really think about it, is it easy living with just one person for the rest of your life? Is it easy waking up to see the same face daily? The truth is that it is quite easy to get bored of someone. It takes a strong commitment to each other to remain steady in marriage. This is why marriage isn’t for the un serious ones but for people who have a strong will and are ready to make things work. It only takes a matured person to stay committed in marriage.
Love no matter what:
When you took your wedding vow and said “for better for worse…” what did you think you were in for? It simply means that no matter the situation you find yourself in when married, you just have to love your spouse. You have to love when times are good and also love when times are bad. It could be hard but when faced with a difficult situation, always remember why you love your spouse. I am very sure those memories will keep your relationship stronger. Love is also a choice and since you have made up your mind to marry that person, you need to stay committed to him or her in love.
Ignore the seemingly annoying things:
There are lots of times your spouse will annoy you and you will definitely annoy him or her too. In all these times, what do you do? Pack your bags and leave the house? Absolutely not! Even if he or she apologises, he or she will still do it again. To stay committed to your spouse in marriage, you have to get to a stage whereby nothing he or she does should annoy you. It seems hard to do, right? But trust me, it is possible at least for you to have a sound state of mind and also for peace to reign. Simply ignore those things that upset you constantly.
It is God that gives grace to people and so even in your marriage, you need grace to stay committed. Fear God, ask for his grace and watch wonders happen in your home.
Do away with distractions:
I tell you that even when married, the law of attraction still holds. The fact that you are married does not mean you still won’t get advances from the opposite sex. But the question is what do you do when they come? To stay committed in marriage, do away with all forms of distractions so that you can focus on your one true spouse.
Don’t believe hearsays:
Rumour mongers can be found everywhere but don’t let them get to you. If you keep listening to the things people say about you or your spouse, it may affect your home. If you doubt the credibility of whatever you hear, talk to your spouse about it to clear the air rather than making assumptions.
If you are therefore determined to stay committed to your spouse in marriage, I strongly believe that the tips in this write up should be of help to you and ginger you to enjoy your marriage for as long as you want.
