Happy Marriage, Happy Life

By David Geller   |   November 25, 2013

One of the keys to my personal happiness is having a good relationship with my wife, Heidi.  Over the years, I have learned three key pieces of wisdom for a happy marriage.  You might have found different ideas that work for you.

The first is to share the positive.  Every day, I make sure I notice and tell Heidi about something that I love and appreciate about her.  The second is to not let things stew.  When I am feeling frustrated with Heidi, expressing those feelings sooner rather than later helps us resolve the issue instead of letting it fester.  Third, I make a point of respecting Heidi’s individual journey. My role is not to tell Heidi how she should live her life.  Rather, I strive to listen, to offer advice only when asked and to support her journey to the best of my ability.

Happy marriage, happy life.
