Here is a list of 7 things that will keep the spark in your relationship and keep your married life much more interesting.

Try new hobbies together :

It is common for a person to have hobbies of his own. Doing your own thing is not as exciting as doing something you both enjoy doing together. Pick out something that both of you enjoy and try it out! If it works well, you can make it a weekend pass time. You get a chance to spend more time together. That means more time to talk, laugh, and have fun- all together

Go on a trip :

Maybe it’s been long since you took a holiday because you are buying with your tight work schedule. That won’t help keep your at-home life interesting. It needs a change. Pack your bags and get away from all the stress for a day or two or maybe even a week! This helps you catch up on all the stuff you missed coming together because of the hectic schedule you had.

It’s ok to fool around :

Just because you are, a married couple does not mean that you have to be responsible and working all day long. You can be that version of you, which existed in high school! Play games, dance, click random pictures, and have loads of fun! It’s surprising how being a little kid, can make time fly by and make everything seem so interesting again. Occasionally, this is absolutely fun and fine.

No ‘chore wars’ please :

One thing you should avoid doing for a happy marriage is not to fight over little things like ‘who should do the dishes’ or ‘who should take the trash out’. Learning to do everything together can help make even odd jobs interesting and fun.

Create a shared viewpoint :

This is where most couples make everything go wrong. They stop seeing eye-to-eye on things and often have different viewpoints. Take time to sit down, relax and then talk things out. Then it is easy to find a point in the discussion that both of you agree about. Jointly plan out major decisions in life and put in the effort that requires. This can make your married life happy and in turn more interesting.

Verbalize your feelings :

When it comes to being happy and being in a happy relationship or happy married life, you need to be expressive about your feelings. Show you, partner, that you love him/her. Also, show that you have been hurt by something that previously happened between the two of you instead of leaving them to wonder what happened. This makes life with you much more interesting for your partner.

Be full of surprises :

Plan a romantic evening together as a surprise for your partner. Host a surprise party. Do anything that will surprise him/her and make him live the moment!

Try to implement one of these and you’ll see how happy you can be. Keep doing it and keeping being happy! It is as simple as pie to make your married life much more interesting. Even little things can add a lot to your relationship.

6 Tips To Follow To Stay Safe While Using Matrimonial Websites

6 Tips To Follow To Stay Safe While Using Matrimonial Websites

6 Tips To Follow To Stay Safe While Using Matrimonial Websites

Anyone ready to get hitched and you would certainly see his profile on some of the matrimonial websites. Yes, it’s not just a trend, but also a dire need in the present world where it’s not possible to look for girls only with the help of relatives. The social set up has changed and with it, the needs have also taken a turn.

However, it’s quite important to take care of all the safety precautions while using matrimonial websites. In the past few years, the number of cases related to cybercrime has seen a steep rise.  So, keeping this in view, here are a few safety tips which you must ensure to follow while using matrimonial websites:

  1. Avoid Giving Your Real Name
    Anyone can see your profile and get all the details about your profession and family background even if you don’t share your real name. And, what’s the need? Let the other person first show interest and then when you are sure to move forward with the relation, it gives you the right time to share your real name. Even the other person will certainly understand this.
  2. Don’t share your Contact Details
    Email is always the right channel to share further details if anyone shows interest on a matrimonial site. There have been so many instances where girls and in some cases even boys are stalked by the fraudsters once the relationship doesn’t take the next step or the other person feels annoyed with the rejection. So, you should never share phone number or home address. For a phone number, it’s safer to give any senior family member’s number rather than sharing your own.
  3. Don’t Give Your Financial Details
    Sometimes the friendship on a matrimonial site gets so deep that people even start helping each other on financial terms as well. But, this can become a very risky affair and a person may cheat the other in any manner after getting the bank details. So, one must avoid indulging in forming financial relations before the relation gets finalized.
  4. Always Keep Your Family in Loop
    Everything you share or the other person shares should always be known to your family. It always keeps you in a safe zone and the other person also thinks hundred times before taking any harmful step.
  5. Don’t Meet in Private
    Many a time, people start meeting the other person after just a few conversations online. Obviously, that is the next step, but the meeting should never be held in private. Such meeting should always be a family affair as it’s not only safe, but also develops confidence in the couple.
  6. Don’t Share Private Pictures
    Sharing of private pictures should never be done on any such matrimonial sites. A passport size photo is enough to let the person have an idea or just for the sake of completing the formalities of the matrimonial sites. However, anything apart from that shouldn’t be shared till the relationship is finalized.

With these safety measures, you can certainly take full benefit of matrimonial websites without being afraid of any fraudster trying to take undue advantage of your profile.

Saral Swayamvar – Creating Relationships Which Last For A Lifetime

Marriage is one of the important steps in our life where a lovely bond is created between two people and they begin a wonderful life together. But, long lasting bonds are only created after special care is taken to identify if the two individuals are compatible with each other.  There are many matrimonial websites and applications apps that help in match-making, but everything allows you to search for profiles but cannot connect you with any prospective alliances in person. You only get to know the compatibility between two individuals only after meeting them in person. The meeting enables the individuals in understand each other’s character, ambitions and aspirations, which help them decide on their compatibility.

3 Things You Should Ask Your Partner Before Marriage

3 Things You Should Ask Your Partner Before Marriage

Marriage is a commitment for future.  Choosing whom you are going to marry largely depends upon whether you both are compatible or not. One of the biggest decisions is to get married to a person whom you don’t know.

A most popular saying is “marriages are made in Heaven”. It is something that we all do believe. We all wish to wait for the right person to come to our life. Many of us choose our own partner. Some of us choose through the online matrimonial portals.

The little surprises are stuffed with joy but there are few things that should not be left till marriage.

Top 3 things to get clarified or keep a note of

What are his/her hobbies and interests?

You may find it’s too early to ask such question but always do it first. According to the research majority of the couples have a liking issue. It is important to look for like-minded match to make a good future together.

If you are a calm and quite person then you may not like a partner who is a party person. Being very conversant with every topic and related discussion is required. You must ask him/ her about the likes and dislikes and see whether you like it or not.  Whether you desire for somebody with similar liking or completely opposite, you must clear it to the person.

Does he/she want to shift to a different city or country after marriage?

If you both are very ambitious then you must be clear about moving out of the state or country. Often it happens that the girl wishes to stay in the country and the boy tends to go out, this leads to long distance relationship which fades away with time.  If you both desire to go out and work then it is necessary to make the other aware of your future plans. One more important thing to talk on is that whether you both will deal with finances or not.

What are his/her career goals and life plans?

It is your normal conversation so you can really ask the person about his/her career goals.  Everyone wishes to get married to someone who aims high in life, and if you similarly do the same then you must be clear with these facts. You should clearly ask about his/her future plans as it makes a big difference in married life.

Getting married is a blissful new experience, and it can make your new life more memorable. Take the effort to build up the marriage in a more positive way. Be very clear about each other’s views and life plans.

7 Points To Discuss Between Families Of The Bride & Groom

7 Points To Discuss Between Families Of The Bride & Groom

7 Points To Discuss Between Families Of The Bride & Groom

Love is between two hearts and souls, but when it comes to marriage, there are two families that are involved in this process. Hey! Getting married?  Whether you are going for a love marriage or an arranged one; understanding each other’s family is exceedingly essential. Because in these days we are observing many situations where the guy and the girl might be compatible with each other, but still the marriage relation broken because of major differences between family members.

So, if we have to consider this as a very significant step, then there are majorly 7 points that need to be discussed between bride and groom’s families before bonding a relation. They are:

1.Belief, traditions and values:
If the bride and groom are from different communities; well this becomes indispensable. Mostly in today’s world, people are not that much considering this as important, but few cases are there where one of the families belongs to very traditional and orthodox methods and other might be less lenient in those areas. It is important that both has respect for each other’s religion, culture and values.

2.Financial standing:
Better to be transparent at the beginning rather than repenting. Most relations these days are greatly influenced by money. May be in very few cases where both parties are well off this might not be an issue but most of the cases the difference of opinions starts from here itself. Convey expectations and limitations clearly at the preliminary stage to avoid unpleasing surprises in future.

3. Family’s way of living:
Most of today’s families have become nuclear and no one is very keen in having a joint family setup but cases may differ. So, it is better to have a clear discussion about each other’s opinion on this so that can take it further without hurting anyone’s emotions.

4. Crisis handling:
Life is always a mystery so we never know how it is going to be tomorrow. Hence it is always good to be ready and plan for crisis situations like may be relocation of the city, planning for children and any health-related issues coming up to have a better clarity for both families.

5. Understanding the past life:
There might be a difficult or greyed out periods in life so it is always advised to speak about them up front. Better than giving chance for someone else to speak about this and ruin the relationships between families.

6. Sharing of responsibilities:
Let it be about marriage related or post marriage, it is good to discuss about the sharing of responsibilities upfront based on their status, availability and other factors. So, tomorrow not giving room for other family members to talk about these things and taking situations for granted.

7. Budget discussions:
Might sound very simple but capable of becoming a major disaster at times to it is always required to speak about marriage budget and expectations clearly to avoid last moment tensions and difference of opinions.The marriage is a strong community if understood properly. Committing ourselves by overcoming minor challenges can make life great!

5 Things To keep in mind while searching for a life Partner for your son or daughter

Marriage builds up a lovely bond between two people and is a way to start a new life Together Forever. In order to have a beautiful married life it is a must to look for a compatible match. You must physically meet the person with due knowledge of your family or friends or relatives, talk about your future plans and then make your final decision in discussion with your well-wishers and your family.

1. Honesty
Honesty is extremely crucial for any relation and marriage is no exception. When you meet a person, it is necessary to share things honestly, because everyone expects the same. Look for people who talk honestly as this builds up trust.

2. Practical
Be practical with your approach while choosing a match. Practically, every person has some flaws so just accept them. Look for reliability in people as this is a basic quality.

3. Character
Don’t make your decision based only on qualification or family background. Always try to understand the person and his family along with their thought process which are much more important attributes than qualification and background.

4. Values
Values and traditions should be respected by both. Knowing someone in the first sight is extremely tough. It is always suggested to look for someone who values thoughts. It is imperative to value others feelings, thus avoid people who are demanding and rude.

5. Behaviour

Marriage is a life time commitment and you should decide wisely as it is for your son or daughter’s life. If your choice is intelligent one, then your son or daughter will gain happiness for lifetime. But, you need to meet the prospective bride or groom in person to understand them better.
