No two people are alike, and it is important to make friends and go through life with people you share common interests. Your personality plays a large part in what type of job you get, what activities you enjoy in your spare time, and what type of people you are comfortable around. This goes not only for making friends, but also for finding a life partner. The blending of two separate and distinct personality types can be difficult, and the old saying “opposites attract” is not always true. For most people, a successful relationship is one that is shared with a mate who shares common values and has a similar personality. But just what are those personality traits, and how can they help you with your marriage?
If you are looking to make your relationship last, research shows these two personality traits play an integral part in relationships that last:
- Kindness: everyone wants to feel important, and a person that is able to show kindness, even in small ways, is more able to make their partner feel needed and cherished.
- Generosity: generosity does not have to come in the form of lavish gifts, it can be something as simple as taking out the trash.
Kindness and generosity are closely linked, and it is also important for a couple to communicate effectively in order to make a marriage work. Therapists and counselors can help identify ways to improve on these qualities, and can also give a couple ideas on how to show their affection for their spouse in ways that don’t require a lot of planning. The smallest and most unexpected gestures are often the most remembered, and can go a long way towards making a person feel appreciated and wanted in a relationship or marriage.
