If there is one thing sure to keep a marriage together for the long haul it’s commitment. Sometimes that’s all that holds a marriage together. Two people can be totally miserable but totally committed, so they stick it out. But did you know it’s also the number one secret to a happy marriage. Let’s face it marriage is a heck of a lot of work. If you’re not committed it’s very easy to give up. But why would you want to just commit to staying together, why not commit to staying together happily. Yes it is more work but it’s worth the effort.
How committed are you to having a happy marriage? The only person that can guarantee you’re in a happy marriage is you. Here’s a good test to see how committed you are. If you had to bet your life that in 2 years you’d be happily married would you take the bet? Would you be willing to bet your life on your happiness?
If your life depended on it, you’d do anything and everything to make sure you had a happy marriage. That’s true commitment. Are you willing to do anything and everything to be happily married? How much effort are you willing to put in? Will you just do it till you feel it’s unfair and your spouse should also be trying? I think that’s one of the main reasons people give up the commitment. They think it’s not fair. Well guess what, life isn’t fair but who cares? If you knew you had to do all the work all the time but you’d be happy would you still do it, or would you give up because it’s not fair?
Make the commitment to be happy! Even if you are the one doing all the work all the time, it’s so worth it! I also guarantee you that once you make the commitment to have a happy marriage and commit to doing it all even if it’s unfair, you won’t have to do all the work. Eventually your spouse will see that you are committed and trying and they’ll try harder also. So are you willing to commit today to having a happy marriage? Are you willing to do all the work? Please comment and let me know what you think.
