Tying The Knot? Michael Webb's 5 Tips To

 Stay Together!



Did you know that love does NOT conquer 

all?



You see, often people get married with the idea

that their “chemistry” or undying love for each

other will keep them together forever.


However, with almost 50% of marriages ending in

divorce these days, it’s obvious that this isn’t

the case. Therefore, it pays to know a few little

secrets before getting married.


Here are 5 tips that help keep couples together

long after tying the knot:



TIP#1 -- CONTINUE DATING


Over the years, people often drift apart or

relationships and marriages become stale because

couples fail to do new and special things together.


That's why going on new and refreshing dates is so

important. In fact, there is something about

“dating” that creates a sense of magic in a

relationship and can even bring relationships out

of a rut.



While on a date, you also put more effort into you

appearance, have more uninterrupted time to

communicate on a deeper level and are naturally

drawn closer together.


Stuck for ideas? Spend the day at the aquarium,

zoo, museum, carnival, bookstore, beach or park.



TIP#2 -- DELAY IS OFTEN BETTER


It’s a well-documented statistic that couples who

have dated for a year or longer before marriage

have a significantly lower rate of divorce than

those who married after a short dating period.


A year of dating gives time for many emotions to

surface and many character traits to be discovered.

You may adore someone in the spring, but despise

him or her in the winter.


Asking someone for his or her hand in marriage on

the third date isn't romantic. It's gambling.



TIP#3 -- ALWAYS EXPRESS YOUR LOVE


Oftentimes, as a relationship matures, partners

tend to stop praising each other because they

'assume' their partner already knows what they're

thinking.


When in reality, a day should never go by without

you praising your partner. Compliment them on their

cooking, reaffirm that they're the greatest person

in the world or tell them they’re a wonderful role

model. 


If you want to be loved and romanced by your sweetheart,

love and romance them first. When they're feeling loved, it 

is much easier to love in return.


Are you a super supporter of what your mate does

and says? So do you cheer them on and praise them

constantly? Or do they constantly hear boos or

silence?




TIP#4 -- TAKE TIME TO UNDERSTAND YOUR

 PARTNER


Couples with the most problems are often the ones

that say, "I just don't understand him/her."

So let me ask you: How knowledgeable are you about

your mate's profession or the degree they are

pursuing? Do you know anything about his or her

family heritage? Are you able to have a meaningful

conversation about her cross-stitch hobby or his

interest in rugby? If you are a man, do you fully

understand what women experience during PMS or

menopause?


You don't need to be identical, but make an effort

to learn about the things that interest your

partner in life and you'll grow closer as a result.



TIP#5 -- ANSWER THE *BIG* QUESTIONS


Does your partner want kids? Do you both want

careers? Do they have a history of spending their

way into debt? Do they go to church?


In my opinion, the biggest reason almost half of

marriages end in divorce is because couples fail to

ask each other the right questions BEFORE they get

married.


I guess people think they'll be able to change

their spouses after marriage and everything will be

better. Wrong. If you fail to sit down and discuss

finances, religion, sex, housing, your future, and

other topics in great detail, you could end up with

nothing but argument after argument for the rest of

your days.

In the end, if you both have completely different

views, desires and goals in life, there’s no

guarantee that chemistry or "I love you’s" will

help you stay together.



Make it your utmost priority to understand 

each other 'inside-out' BEFORE you take 

that walk down the aisle.

Book Review ­ 1000 Questions For Couples

One of the biggest reason marriages end in divorce is because couples fail to ask the big questions before they walk down the aisle. 

If couples simply spent some time asking each other the questions that really matter, they'd greatly increase their chances of staying together.

The great thing about a "question book" is that it makes it easier to ask those difficult questions and encourages an environment to address them.

But is Michael Webb's "1000 Questions For Couples" the right book for this?

In short, yes. Most question books 'beat around the bush,' never really providing the important questions, and others simply don't have enough questions. 

On the other hand, Webb has put together the most comprehensive collection of questions, covering every single topic you'd ever want to know about before tying the knot.

It includes tough subjects like money, children & child rearing, career, past and present relationships, religion, morals, convictions & beliefs, personality, and even sex.

But don't get me wrong ­ while there are many serious and tough topics to discuss, there are also many "lighter" yet just as important topics, including the car and driving, vacations, food and well being, pets, and your favorite things.

That's one thing we really loved about this book. It covered every conceivable topic from the super serious to the light-hearted and fun, making it easy for couples to start with easy questions and build their way up to important ones.

Also, a great bonus is having the ability to deliver 3 - 5 of the questions to my email each day, making everything automatic. I just go about my day and get new questions to ask my loved one, without having to really think about it.

In all, there's nothing really negative we can say about this book. It delivers exactly what it says and covers every question you would ever want to ask your loved one.

We highly recommend this book for everyone. NOT just couples who are thinking of getting married but also couples who just want to feel closer together, or people dating, who just want more things to talk about.
