Next, to have a great marriage is to ensure that your partner is happy in the bedroom. As the years pass, many couples stop being intimate with one another and it often becomes an afterthought. However, you should take time to maintain that intimacy and it doesn’t always mean getting physical.

Last, always talk to your partner and truly communicate your own thoughts, ideas, needs, issues etc. At the same time, listen carefully to your partners as well.

Good communication will strengthen any marriage and it will make both of you, much happier. It will also help to prevent many problems and ensure that both of you feel fulfilled, important and loved.
