It's good to be busy, but not too busy. As with so many things in life, it's all a matter of balance. Be diligent but don't work too hard. Excessive idleness is not good in any aspect of life and that includes your marriage or relationship. The key is to maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Work hard but learn to relax too. Enjoy feeling good but do so in moderation.
Balance your time together with time to yourself, time with your children, time with your friends etc. Look after your own needs and interests while considering the same importance of the needs and interests of your partner.
It is also important to remember the core aspects of your partner. Those aspects are hardwired into their personality. No matter how hard you try, you wont ever be able to change them. Every personality trait has positive and beneficial qualities, as well as the potential to produce negative results. Don't try to change your partner. Receive them with acceptance, join them enthusiastically and help bring out the best in your partner.
Remember to always respect each other. Sometimes, married couples need to be reminded that it's important to continue showing each other the same consideration they did when they were dating. One of the reasons why courtship is so romantic is that starry-eyed lovers are always on their best behavior, treating each other with decency and respect. Their every word and action indicates that they value and appreciate each other. Practicing politeness towards each other requires effort. Human nature sometimes causes us to indulge in selish, immature, disrespectful behavior which only leads to hurt feelings and resentment. Nobody likes to be treated rudely or taken for granted. Validate the dignity and worth of your partner.
Have the ability to see each other's point of view. Your spouse's viewpoint is important. You need to accurately perceive the world you live in. Ask for their input. With the insight your partner can provide, you will better understand not only your mate but yourself.
Always remember that neither of you are perfect but there is a reason that the two of you fell in love and stayed together.
They are the best images that I can find to say what I really feel about marriage :-)
