9. Cultivate common interests. Don't minimize the importance of activities you can do together that you both enjoy.
10. Walk hand in hand or side by side. Rather than one partner lagging or dragging behind the other, happy couples walk comfortably hand in hand or side by side.
11. Make trust and forgiveness your default mode.
12. Focus more on what your partner does right than what he or she does wrong.
13. Say nice things to each other often.
14. Call your partner at home or at work to see how his or her day is going. This is a great way to adjust expectations so that you're more in sync when you connect after work. For instance, if your partner is having an awful day, it might be unreasonable to expect him or her to be enthusiastic about something good that happened to you.
15. Be proud to be seen with your partner. Happy couples are pleased to be seen together and are often in some kind of affectionate contact -- hand on hand or hand on shoulder or knee or back of neck. They are not showing off but rather just saying that they belong with each other.
Happy couple is not a status that a couple is born with; it is a status that is acquired and earned over time. It comes with patience and perseverance. You have to want to be a in a relationship with your partner. You have to want to be married. You have to want to be happy with that special one. When you want it you get it. So want to be a happy couple and you will be one.
Marriage is a sacred union and it should not be given up on too quick. Give it time, and put in effort and even a bad relationship will be flourishing again.
