It’s no secret that happy marriages lead to happy homes. If your spouse is happy, then there will be less conflict and more happiness in your marriage. But what exactly does it mean to be a happy spouse? The Happiness Project points out six ways to make your spouse happy:

  • Being grateful for all the positive qualities in your partner
  • Giving him or her the space they need
  • Understanding that we’re fallible and forgiving each other when we fail
  • Maintaining the excitement
  • Working as a team and
  • Respecting each others’ differences

Be Grateful

for the positive qualities in your partner.

The most important thing you can do as a husband or wife is to continually be grateful for all the positive things that happen in your relationship.

This means being grateful for good weather and not complaining about the snow (which, let’s face it, will inevitably happen). It means being thankful when you get home from work and not saying anything negative about your commute. Being grateful also includes being open to change and letting go of old ways of doing things.

Give Space

In your relationship, give space for each other. A study published in the Journal of Marriage and Family found that couples who had more space were happier. This isn’t just because being together makes you feel better, it’s because having more space means you have time to spend together!

It’s not enough to simply be with your partner. You need to give them a little extra space so they can recharge and get back into their groove. We all know how important it is to make time for ourselves: It keeps us from getting burnt out and gives us the energy to build our businesses.

When we are at work, we still want our partners to be with us. That’s why vacation time is so important: It allows both partners to get away from the stress of work for a few hours without having to sacrifice what they’re doing for each other. As much as possible, make sure you take time off in order to be there for each other during this time of year.

Understand Fallibility

When it comes to relationships, the most important thing is to understand one another. That’s because when you’re in a relationship with someone, you want to know that they are really who they say they are. You don’t want them to be hiding their true self. You also don’t want someone who is only interested in what you have, or what you can give them.

It’s important for couples to communicate about their emotions and be honest about their thoughts and feelings. They should be able to talk about anything that comes up naturally. When the topic of sexual intimacy arises, it’s important for both of them to discuss whether something is going on or not. The more open and honest communication between partners helps build trust and increases intimacy within the relationship.

Maintain Excitement

One of the best ways to maintain your attraction with your spouse is to show him or her the exciting things you’re doing. You can do this by going on a date, spending time away from home, or even just hanging out!

You don’t want to be too distant from your spouse, because then it becomes harder for him or her to connect with you. The Happiness Project refers to this as emotional intimacy. By paying attention to what’s happening in your relationship, you’ll be able to maintain excitement and eventually build a strong relationship that will last a lifetime.

Work as a Team

Attending to these six key areas is an important part of building a happy marriage. If you work well together as a team, your spouse will be more likely to be happy.

The Happiness Project is a website that helps couples track the ways in which they can contribute to their happiness, and it’s become very popular with married couples (and even singles!). Here are some great ideas for how you can work as a team to make your relationship stronger:

  • Take turns cooking dinner
  • Teach each other new skills or hobbies
  • Take long walks together
  • Have fun together
  • Practice writing letters to each other
  • Share your ideas, leave a comment

Respect Differences

Understand Differences. Answering the question, “How do you become a happy spouse?” is an important step in your marriage journey. This is because harmony and love are built on respect for each other’s differences. It’s also important to understand these differences so that you can build a relationship that fosters understanding and acceptance of your partner’s different beliefs and opinions.
