Why It’s Big

Traditions are shining moments in a marriage—they give you celebrations to look forward to. Start them now, early on, so that you can carry them out throughout your happily ever after. Teach your kids about traditions and someday you'll watch them create their own with their spouse, all because of you!

How to Deal

Honor established rituals that were passed down from both of your families (especially holiday-related ones), and create new traditions of your own. Choose two or three traditions to maintain that you'll both stay enthusiastic about. Your tradition doesn’t have to be something big, like renewing your wedding vows every six months. It could be something small, like choosing a holiday ornament that represents your biggest adventure or goal of the year. For example, my husband I swam with turtles during our honeymoon, so our first ornament was a glass turtle. We've added to our collection with dolphins (a trip to Sea World) and a tomato (putting in our dream garden). Or you could make a sparkling Prosecco toast on half-anniversaries; anything that you'll look forward to that represents the two of you.

I think that the most important advice is ‘love and passion’ to each other!) Besides I say not only about the ‘physical attraction’, but also about the ‘spiritual unity’!) For example, I found my inner harmony when I met my ‘present husband’ in this cool site https://kovla.com/datings/us/waterloo/ and since that moment I feel the total balance of ‘my body and my soul’!) Our family is created on the mutual understanding and respect! We like speaking about the purpose of life and we have our ‘crazy love’!) I wish to everybody good luck in the ‘search’ of incredible happiness and ‘real love’!) I’m sure that ‘love will come’ to you very unexpectedly!) Wait for it!)
