Marriage Survival Guide
By Hafiz Qaasim Paruk
1 Do not demand your rights but rather discharge your obligations.
2 Keep smiling – it is an act of charity! (Smile with your partner, not someone else’s! )
3 Express praise and gratitude – all humans share the same basic needs – to feel appreciated, respected and loved.
4 Never compare your spouse with others – the grass always looks greener on the other side!
5 Never bring up past issues that were resolved – they only cloud the future.
6 Never insult your spouse in front of other people. It is a confession of your own weakness.
7 Never insult each another’s relatives -it is demeaning and leads to a lack of self confidence.
8 Never adopt a tit for tat mentality – it causes equal pain to you.
9 Be the better person! Admit your mistakes & say: “I am sorry.”
10 Never go to bed without settling an argument – You may never see the next day
11 Do not blame your spouse for always arguing – it takes two to quarrel.
