Couples who are about to get married always ask themselves or their friends and family: what’s the secret to a good marriage? The usual answers include love, mutual respect, passion, and patience. But, recent studies have actually revealed a few other interesting factors that make a good marriage.
What are these factors exactly and why are they so interesting? For one, the factors included in this list are things that you wouldn’t have thought of in a million years.
1. A Heavier Husband
Everybody knows that a couple packs on a few pounds after marriage. Usually, it’s the female that gains weight first. Instead of exercising day and night to lose weight or stay thin, all that a female needs to make sure of is that she is thinner than her husband. This dynamic makes a good marriage. It’s unbelievable but Daily Mail wrote about it in an article.
2. Focusing on the Positive
Focusing on the positive is a given in a good marriage. The saying, “there’s always a silver lining on every dark cloud” can be applied to this situation. Instead of focusing on negative things, like forgotten anniversaries or not putting the toilet seat down after a hundred and one reminders, focus on what’s good about bad situations.
3. The Husband helps out with Chores
Let’s face it; even if we’re already in the 21st century, females still do most of the housework. Let’s give credit to the husbands who don’t mind washing the dishes and taking out the trash every now and then. But, females seem to have the instinctual urge to clean and tidy up.
Things have to change if a couple wants to have a good marriage. Studies show that wives find their husbands more attractive if they help around the house. The more attractive the husband, the more exciting it will be in the bedroom, the more exciting it is in the bedroom, the happier the husband is. The cycle then repeats.
It Doesn’t Take a Lot for a Good Marriage
Surprisingly, it doesn’t take a lot to have a good marriage. There are a lot more factors to make a marriage last, but the majority of the factors listed here are very doable. All that’s needed is a little bit of effort from both sides. Share this post if you find it interesting! For more posts like this, visit the blog.
