Do you want your marriage to last forever? Do these 14 things every single day

Forever marriage can be a reality when you put in the effort.
  • Getting married is a big deal, and it's scary to think about that type of commitment when we see marriages fall apart all the time. Just this year we saw the end of Brangelina, and our hearts broke when Anna Faris and Chris Pratt called it quits.

  • There's no way around it - marriage is hard. You don't always like your spouse, and problems come up that seem impossible to fix. But a happy, forever marriage is possible. It requires work and commitment, but the beautiful marriage that comes out of it is more than worth the struggle.

  • Here are 14 things you should do every day if you want your marriage to last forever:

  • 1. Kiss

  • Don't just give your love a little peck on the cheek - kiss them like you mean it every single day.

  • 2. Say "I love you"

  • You spouse knows you love them, but it doesn't hurt to say it over and over. Being reminded of how loved you are is one of the best feelings in the world.

  • 3. Thank them for the little things

  • Our spouses do so many things every day that go unappreciated, so we need to thank them for all they do. They deserve it.

  • 4. Take care of yourself

  • You can't love another person to your full potential if you don't love yourself. Take time to feel good about yourself every day - whether that's getting ready for the day or listening to your favorite songs. Loving yourself is so important.

  • 5. Let the small things go

  • It might drive you crazy that your husband opens every cabinet then leaves them open, but will it really matter in the long run? Don't freak out over the small things, because they're not worth fighting over.

  • 6. Be nice

  • We're super comfortable around our spouse, and as hard as it is to admit, it's easy to be rude and sassy to them. Make an effort to just be nice and treat them with respect.

  • 7. Hold hands

  • Make sure you're having some kind of physical connection with your spouse every day. It'll do wonders for the quality of your marriage.

  • 8. Give undivided attention

  • Put your phones away for 30 minutes and just talk with your sweetheart.

  • 9. Help each other

  • You and your partner are both so busy, but taking time to help each other out will lighten both of your loads.

  • 10. Give sincere compliments

  • Every time you think something nice about your spouse, tell them. Compliments are always welcome, and a sincere one from you will make your sweetheart feel amazing.

  • 11. Listen to each other

  • When your sweetheart is talking, you should always listen. Having good communication is the first step to a happy marriage.

  • 12. Spend quality time together

  • Spend as much time as you can with your spouse. You'll learn so much about them, and your relationship will grow deeper and deeper.

  • 13. Clean up your messes

  • Instead of leaving your clothes on the bathroom floor, put them away so your sweetheart doesn't have to. It'll take you 30 seconds, and your spouse will be so happy.

  • 14. Show your love for each other

  • Don't just say "I love you" - show your love. Actions speak louder than words, and showing your love for each other will strengthen your marriage.

  • When you do these small things with your sweetheart every single day, your marriage will develop into something even more incredible than it already is.
