Make your marriage last with these pearls of wisdom

It doesn’t matter if you’ve been married two years or two decades. If you’re married, you would know that making it last takes effort, time and most of all — perseverance.

But that doesn’t mean it can’t be done! Here, we’ve compiled five quotable quotes by famous people on love and marriage. These pearls of wisdom shed light on how to make your partnership a happy one.

It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages – Friedrich Nietzche

Isn’t this so true? A marriage is very much a level-upped friendship, but sometimes we lose sight of that. Don’t forget that your spouse is your best friend, who loves you and always wants the best for you. And we all know that good friends sometimes hurt us or let us down, but their love for us never changes.

Work on building a strong friendship with your spouse! Head to the cinema, share jokes on Whatsapp, talk about your day. These are ways you can make your marriage last.

“Who, being loved, is poor?” – Oscar Wilde

This famous poet got it spot on when talking about love. Some of us are so loved that we take it for granted and forget that we are so rich because we are loved!

Take some time to appreciate your partner by buying their favourite foods, treating them to an experience they’ve always wanted (theme park, a long hike, cooking class) or just telling them you love them. It’s a great way to build a strong foundation that will make your marriage last.

When you realise that being in a marriage makes you rich, you’ll appreciate it so much more!

“A great marriage is not when the ‘perfect couple’ comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.” – Dave Meurer

This is a nugget of gold, and serves as a good reminder to all of us idealists out there. Love isn’t about perfection, and neither is marriage. Instead, it is about working together to make each other better.

If your marriage is rocky, take a step back and look at the gaps. You may need to change your attitude, or work something out in yourself. At the same time, it may be your partner who also has to do some self-improvement. Be open to correction, and keep your eyes on the goal.
