Habits of Happy Couples Pt. 2

Marriage is a big deal—it can be tough, and it can be awesome. Spouses are supposed to be “garments” to one another…and garments protect a person, give them warmth, comfort, stay close and something you always need. Happy couples work on their relationships and incorporate habits that strengthen the bond. Here are a few more tips by Karaz’s Shahrazad to start blending into your routine today.

So Fresh and So Clean, Clean

Looking good, smelling good and putting in an effort when it comes to your appearance, isn’t about being superficial. You want to be sexy and desirable to your spouse, and for that to happen, you have to clean up. Always make sure your breath smells good, you trim and prim, and care—not only for your spouse, but for yourself too.

Pet Names

Pet names are cute. Baby, honey, habibi, hayati…whatever it is. Sweet words, sweet nicknames make a person feel good. It let’s them know you’re they’re special someone—which is always a pick-me-up!

Complain Less

Is it really a big deal? Ask yourself that question the next time you have the urge to complain about something. It might be annoying, but is it really worth brining it up? If it’s not…then let it slide. No one is perfect and pointing out the bad things ALL THE TIME is just negative energy you could really use without.


Smiling is contagious. It’s a good thing. Smiling when you see your husband/wife will make them feel good, and when they feel good, it will make you feel good in return. Put out positive energy and you will get it back. Plus, the more you smile, the more you will actually be happy.

Make Lists

Sit down with your husband/wife and ask them to write down the last 10 things you did that made them happy. It might be something you didn’t even think of! Keep the list and do it again, instead of guessing. Do the same for them and work together to do things for each other that lift the both of you up and count for a happier relationship.
