Some really good advice for a successful marriage given by a teacher at a wedding. He said these are the T’s of a successful marriage.
T Is for Taqwa – the foundation of a successful marriage. Fearing Allah allow both parties to live in harmony.
T is for Trust – don’t allow any room for your spouse to doubt you and give them some personal space
T is for Tongue – control your tongue when speaking to your spouse. Don’t speak rudely.
T is for Talk – Communicate with your spouse regularly. Let them know your feelings.
T is for Time – make time to spend with your spouse, and realise that your life timetable has to change once you’re married.
T is for Tea – make sure you eat and drink together at the same time as this creates love between 2 people
T is for Tolerance – nobody is perfect, but look at the good qualities in your spouse and tolerate the bad with patience
T is for Technology – technology can make or break a relationship. Don’t allow it to become the third person in the relationship.
T is for Trouble makers – don’t allow the rumours and comments of others spoil the harmony between you and your partner
T is for Temper – this is one of biggest reasons behind marriages breaking. Control your anger with your spouse.
T is for Tahajjud – wake up in the night for Tahajjud and even pray together, and encourage each other to do good deeds
…May Allah give us a better understanding & guide us to accept the truth
