I think as a couple the Golden rule that i can share is based on the Bible which is submission and love. As a wife sometimes, i do not follow it because i mean we have different opinions and views in life but submission is one of the keys to make our marriage work. The most important of it is love. Not just saying it but it speaks strongly in our actions. We must always show our love and understanding to our partners and achieve joyful moments in our daily lives. Mylotters what are your rules to have a joyful and lasting relationship?

My number one rule is SPACE. As long as you stay out of my space then we are cool. Invade my space? Well in that case we will have a problem. If I say I want to be alone then I mean it. I need my own bed, room, and resting quarters. I think it all starts with respecting a person's space. As long as that is respected then everything else will fall into place.

Hi kjones505. Thanks for sharing. Yes, indeed we all need time for ourselves. It is best to be alone for sometime with our own property and do the things that makes us relax. Respect is really important too for without it i think our relationship will get worst. Happy mylotting.

I will have to agree to all your points about married life. it's all about love and understanding, we should be open to each other's like dislike and accept the way we are. Sometimes we forget to express love but we do love, may not be saying it all the time but action speak louder than words. Love your life:)

No marriage is perfect but I do believe that love sustains marriage. Not the feeling or emotion of loving because emotions come and go, but the decision to choose to love is what sustains every relationship.

Well for me love, trust and respect. If those 3 are in the relationship there would be lesser problem to occur. There's no perfect marriage we all have our own ups and downs but things would be more miserable if there's no love, trust and respect.

my wife always tells me "i may not always agree with you but i always love you," and that is true. not because we are married, that means she or me will lose our own identity. there are a lot of ingredients to make a very successful marriage and all we need to do is to make some adjustment and arrangements. we are not perfect we all have our flaws. i dont think there are rules but there are a lot of ingredients needed to make it work. communication, honesty and trust are a few of the ingredients needed. welcome to the wonderful world of mylot money.

I think trust make any relationship strong. So always trust on your partner. And share everything with each other. I think it is a way for joyful married life. I think if both partners believe on each other and discuss always on each matter then never any misunderstanding comes between both. And they can live a happily life.
