A famous philosopher once said that it is the 99 small things in life that make up that one flame of eternal love. After marriage, learn to observe your husband to truly understand his likes and dislikes, then see how both of you react differently to varying situations and contexts. Set aside an hour every day for you two to converse with each other and connect on a deeper level. Share your thoughts and emotions, dreams and aspirations, fears and yearnings, triumphs and losses, under the stars on the terrace. Slowly let words bring both of you closer.

4. Your first big fight

You will not be able to savor the full taste of matrimony until you have had your first big fight, no matter what the reason for the fight is. This will haul you out of the romantic honeymoon haze and allow you to see yourselves as the two individuals both of you actually are. Arguments are inevitable in any relationship, but do not fear – if your relationship is strong enough, petty disagreements would not be enough to bring it down. Be honest about your likes and dislikes, and remember that some space and respect will be all that you need to achieve harmony again.
