Top 10 Marriage Mistakes

We’ve noticed that there is a pattern to the marital problems and issues that people share. Here’s our list of the top ten things that you need to try and avoid in your own marriage.

1. Lack of Respect
Don’t badmouth your spouse to your friends or associates. Spouses need to be thanked. They need to know they are appreciated. One of the most important ingredients for a successful marriage is mutual respect.

2. Not Listening to Your Spouse
This includes allowing your mind to wander, paying more attention to the computer or television set, ignoring body language, and interrupting. Expecting your spouse to be a mind reader is another big communication mistake. Lack of communication is a primary reason marriages fail. Couples have to learn to communicate and listen to one another effectively.

3. Lack of Sexual Intimacy
This is a death knell for a marriage. Seek medical counsel and therapeutic counseling if necessary. Don’t leave your spouse wondering why you aren’t interested in sex.

Why You Should Hold Hands
Nonsexual touch and other signs of affection strengthens your marriage relationship, creates a comforting and calming atmosphere in your home, builds trust between the two of you, and deepens your intimacy with one another.

Make an Appointment to Have Sex
If your busy schedules or different body clocks are interfering with your sexual intimacy, make an appointment to have sex with one another.

Top Three Ways to Spice Up Your Sex Life
With one in five men in the U.S. and approximately 40% of women in the U.S. having sexual problems, people are looking for solutions. Here are three ways to improve your sex life.

Kick the Television Out of Your Bedroom!
According to Italian sexologist, Serenella Salomoni, you aren’t getting as much sex as you could if you have a television set in your bedroom.

Marriage Sexuality
One of the skills that can make marital sex great is communication.

How to Please Your Husband in Bed

How to Please Your Wife in Bed
Here’s what it takes to please your wife in bed and to delight her even if her needs may be more complicated than yours.

4. Always Having to Be Right
This includes lecturing your mate, or having to have the last word. Very few people can love a know-it-all forever. Admit when you make a mistake or that you don’t have all the answers. Don’t answer every simple question with a long-winded dissertation on the topic.

5. Not Walking the Talk
Actions do speak louder than words. When you say you’ll do something, do it. When you say you won’t do something, follow through.

6. Hurtful Teasing
If your spouse says the teasing is hurtful, considers it a put down, or thinks that it is inappropriate, then stop it. Claiming that your spouse doesn’t have a sense of humor or is too sensitive is being inconsiderate and unkind.

7. Dishonesty
Having lies and secrets in your relationship can create distance and lack of trust between the two of you.

8. Being Annoying
This includes continuing to have gross personal hygiene habits, or always being late, or nitpicking everything your spouse does, etc. It is when you know you are annoying and you continue to annoy.

9. Being Selfish or Greedy
This is when you spend money on yourself, but make a big deal if your spouse spends a dime. This is not wanting to open your home to friends and family because you prefer to be alone and don’t want the hassle of entertaining. This is hogging the remote, only going to cheap restaurants when you could afford better, or not watching movies your spouse wants to see.

10. Having Temper Tantrums
Every couple needs to be able to handle conflict in a constructive way. Having an angry outburst so that you can win an argument will make you the loser in the end.
