First of all, all you need is to LOVE and BELOVED. You have to talk, to be heard, to comprehend, and to be your husband best friend. There is no secure formula, but some of these work for me. Congratulations and have a good wedding.

Congratulations and Best wishes! There are several factors to consider to have a happy marriage aside from truly loving each other. In marriage and in any other relationships, there should be respect and trust. Those are the main ingredients of happy marriage since you will soon be leaving together and sharing each others lives, you should still know each others limitations. Avoid being too possesive and extreme jealousy since this denotes lack of trust and faith to your partner. Give each other space to breathe and let him or her still live her individual life. You will see that when you can still enjoy living life even when you spend some time apart it could spice up the relationship more. Learn also to understand each others needs, don't focus only on your own needs and wants, consider also your partner's feelings. You see, marriage is a two way relationship, so learn to give as well as take. Another thing, communication is vital so make sure you are really able to communicate with each other not just chat about things. And ofcourse be sensitive to all the little kind things your partner does for you. Learn to appreciate each other, this will continue to fuel the love and desire you feel for each other. And most of all, entrust your marriage to God, made Him the center of your relationship. This way you will not only have a happy marriage also a successful one.

Congratulations. I hope you have a long and happy marriage. I'm not married but I think there are a few key things to a happy marriage. I would say the most important are communication and compromise.

Congratulations and Best wishes! Though it is true that love is the main ingredient for a happy marriage, it also entails respect for each other, honesty, compatibility and trust. The only way to make any relationship work is to deal with it with a open heart and mind. As long as ou respect and trusted each other, aside from honestly loving, things will work out. And don't just make it work, enjoy it! Enjoy all the moments you have together, cherish even the simplest gesture and be kind to one another. i have been married for two years and we're still going stronger despite of everything, that's because we know the main ingredients for a happy marriage.
