Secret of a Happy Married Life

Once I asked Friend, "What is the secret behind your happy married life?"

Friend said, "You should share responsibilities with due love and respect to each other. Then absolutely there will be no problems."

I asked, "Can you explain?"

Friend said, "In my house, I take decisions on bigger issues where as my wife decides on smaller issues. We do not interfere in each other's decisions."

Still not convinced, I asked Friend "Give me some examples"

Friend said," Smaller issues like which car we should buy, how much amount to save, when to visit home town, which Sofa, air conditioner, refrigerator to buy, monthly expenses, whether to keep a maid or not etc are decided by my wife. I just agree to it"

I asked, "Then what is your role?"

Friend said," My decisions are only for very big issues. Like whether America should attack Iran, whether Britain should lift sanction over Zimbabwe , whether to widen African economy, whether Sachin Tendulkar should retire, whether IPL should be played in India or S.A/UK etc etc.

P.S.: Borrowed from a email forward by a friend.

Now that is a topic we do not think of quite often.

Good food for thought... what makes for a Happy Married Life?

I feel that the secret varies from couple to couple and individual to individual as different things make different people happy.

Having said that, the premise of any marriage would be based on trust, honesty, respect and compromise for each other. At the end of the day, if you are married to the love of your life, there are no secrets, together you make it work - work towards making each other happy! :)

Vinita, your personal comments from experience of a Happy married life?
