Marriage Advice  Top 2 Marriage Secrets

There are two top tips to having a great marriage that you can put to use in your love life to fix relationship problems starting today.

1.  Turn Conflict Into Caresses.  You will have conflict in any marriage.  That's a given.  It's gonna happen and it isn't bad.  But studies have shown that how you manage the conflict is the key to how well your relationship will endure.  Relationships where partners scream a lot, scorn each other, and/or treat each other with contempt during conflict are unhealthy, and  they are unlikely to last. 

Conflict is going to happen, spending time learning how to handle it in ways that don't damage the marriage will keep your partnership healthy.  So the first secret is to minimize conflict damage.  There are books and courses and counselors that can help you with this, but if conflict is killing your relationship, get trained on how to deal with it better.  It's not hard to learn.  The book on Having the Relationship You Want has a complete section on how to Turn Conflict Into Caresses.

1.  Play.  Here's the equation.  The more play, the less fighting.  The more fighting, the less play.  How much play you have in your relationship determines its quality, to a large degree.   There is a simple inverse relationship.  The more of one you have, the less of the other.  So tip number one is to have some play time with your mate at least weekly. 

Do you at least plan a date night?  If you've been fighting a lot, it may take a while to figure out how to play again, but you both played together when you first got into the relationship.  Spending some time figuring out how to play with your mate can pay off immediately and in the long term. 

There are entire books that can be and have been written about each of these topics, so this is obviously just an introduction, but these are a great place to start to improve your marriage today.
