Keys to a Successful Relationship/Marriage

EP 1I’ve been with my husband for 10 years and we’ve been married for almost 2 years. Many people say that 10 years is a long time to be with someone but I feel like the time has flown by. During that time, I have learned a thing or 2 on how to make our relationship a successful one.

  • Don’t keep secrets from each other.

* Anything that you think you’d want your partner to tell you, you should tell them.

  • Don’t go to bed angry at each other.

 * Talk it out until there’s a resolution and move on.

  • Leave the past in the past.

* It’s there for a reason. It’s over and done with. There’s no reason to keep on bringing it up.

  • If they do something that bothers you, speak up.

* How is your partner supposed to know they’re doing something wrong if you don’t say something?

  • Trust your partner.

* If you don’t have trust, the relationship will never work out.

  • Communicate with your partner.

* Talk about how your day was or how work went. You’d be surprised how much more you can learn about them by talking.

  • Have a date night every now and then.

* You can never be too busy to go out and spend some quality time with your partner.

Now, I’m far from a relationship expert but I can tell you that these tips have worked for us. There’s so much more that I can post but I’ll leave that for a later time. I hope you can find some inspiration in these tips and they can help you in whatever you’re going through.

Please welcome Mr. & Mrs. Genao

    1. We tried not to let the friendships change. We made time at least once a month to do things with our friends because they’re really important to us. We would do theme parks like Halloween Horror nights at Universal Studios. It was a yearly tradition for us to catch up with each other. Unfortunately, my husband’s job moved us to California from Florida so we don’t see everyone as much. We do make a point of communicating just about every day whether it’s through social media or text.

  1. I agree with your pointers 🙂 My wife and I still has been married for 7 years and we still have a long way to go. Our marriage has suffered before and almost gave up, but God is really faithful and loving that He managed to keep our relationship. I just wanted to share the stories about how God moved into our lives 🙂

    God bless you and your husband.

    1. Thank you so much! I’m glad to hear that you marriage has managed to survive throughout the years. That’s what a marriage is about- faith, love, and believing in one another enough to work it out.


  2. Absolutely true. My husband and I have been married for almost 8 years. The “don’t go to bed angry” piece is what is often hardest. It’s an amazingly smart tip, though. We have a painting thing on our wall that we can see as we lie in bed. It says: Always kiss me goodnight. VERY important. 🙂

  3. Great post. We all need this reminder! Just finished re-reading The 5 Love Languages and discussing with my husband. Never hurts to freshen things up!


  4. We also follow the sames ”rules” as a couple. It’s so easy to let things go bad between two persons if you don’t talk.


  5. Great advice! 🙂 I’m not married, but I believe trust and communication are the most important in a relationship. If you don’t have that when you’re dating… how’s it going to work out when you’re married? Also, I swear by “don’t go to bed angry.” Even if you can’t fully resolve the problem, it’s good to at least talk about it…then sleep on it.

  6. We’ve been married 15 years. I have to say there have been a few times where we’ve gone to bed angry, but mostly because neither of us functions well on lack of sleep and we decided to get some rest before resolving something in the morning. You do have to keep communication lines open in order for a relationship to work!
