One of them is the married life.  Below are few of the Feng shui you may apply for a blissful married life and to bring back the love and passion.

Happy Married LifeRead to find out tips for a happy married life.

Color: Color is an important entity in Feng Shui. The pink, yellow or brown color attracts and improves love and relations. Increase passion in your relationship with fire elements like red curtains in your room. You may also experiment by splashing some pink or light red on the walls.

Direction: The Southwest corner of your home is known to govern the luck of love, romance and relationships. Natural crystals are effective for energizing the Southwest corner of your home. Place a crystal on the Southwest corner of your living room or bedroom. It will activate and enhance your romance luck in your love life. A cream colored ceramic vase with artificial yellow flowers is also ideal.

Bed: In Feng shui if your bed is placed in line with any doors of the room, it is considered as a bad omen. Also do not place your bed under a sloped ceiling.  Beds with built-in storage drawers underneath are not good either. Make sure to have a good supporting wall behind your bed along with a good headboard. It is also advisable not to sleep under the window. You may however place nightstands on both sides of the bed provided it does not have pointed edges. A chandelier above your bed also not a good sign. Also make sure to keep all doors in the bedroom closed at night.

Mattress: Never buy or use used mattresses in your bed as negative energies for the previous owners may have an impact on your relationship. Always use single mattresses in the bed.

Mirrors: Do not keep your bed facing the mirror or the ceiling in Feng Shui. Keep it always covered when not in use.

Electronics: Do not have the Television hung up on your bed room. It is a bed room and not a living room. But, if you are pro TV, keep it covered when not in use. And do not let it face the bed directly.

Mend Relationships: If you are trying to get out of a serious breakup, throw away all the clutter of the old relationships like photographs, mementos or anything reminding of the previous relationship. Also throw away the love letters or the old sheets if it is still with you. If you want to make way of a new romantic partner in your heart, make sure to make space for the new person in your home too.

Use Pairs: If you have photos or paintings in your house, make sure that there is pair in it, like love birds, mandarin ducks, pair of geese etc. Instead of one side table, get two.

Maintain Balance: Maintain perfect balance on both sides of the bed. For example use same end tables, lamps, equal candles on both the sides.

Things to Avoid: Water symbols in the room like aquariums or pictures of rivers, waterfalls etc is a big no no. Avoid decorating the bedroom with potted plants or artificial or fresh flowers. They never bring good luck.

Marriage is entering into a complete topsy-turvy land. It is mostly the first year of marriage that determines the future of the couple, whether they will be able to adjust with each other and lead a successful married life. Unfortunately it is seen that several newly married couples end up having divorce within a year of tying the knot because of the lack of compromise between the two.

Researchers opine that most of these divorces happen because the newly married couple is not prepared to face the difficult challenges ahead of them. When they sit on the alter all they think of is the good times they are going to have post marriage completely ignoring that fact the marriage is a rollercoaster ride and you can not expect to be always dancing in the rain. They know that the honeymoon period will end soon but fail to think beyond that.

Be it in love marriage or arranged, the first year marriage problems are pretty serious to test the relationship for the first time. Dating and marriage are two completely different entities. You need to lay a strong foundation when your marriage is still fresh. Confront your first year marriage problems and work on it as a couple for a blissful life ahead.

Volunteer for doing his laundry

Not this comes with a benefit. This way you can check his pockets for incriminating evidences and also sniff his clothes for a whiff of feminine perfume.

Every one of us has a past which is a total mixture of both sweet and sour memories. Hold on to the sweet one and let go off the bitter ones. Try and avoid bringing up past issue and argue over it in the present.

Understand your partner well

Do not let your partner suffocate in your marriage. If you both are going through a rough phase, give some time and space to your partner. Understand them, share their problems, and help them sort out things. This will make them feel better and will sort out things faster.

Try to Forgive

Who does not make mistakes? Since your spouse is your soul mate, there can not be any harm on forgiving them. A little bit of generosity on your part will be of great help to save your relationship.

No third person involvement

Never make way for any third person to come in between both of you unless for a valid reason. Do not let their involvement ruin their relationship. However, it is always advisable to deal with things only with your partner instead of bringing in a third person into the scenario.

Get involved in activities from time to time

If you are having this feeling that you are drifting away from your partner, try every possible way to get closer to them. Go for a vacation, spend some time together by going for activities. Togetherness leads to happiness and bliss.

Try to Speak out

Marriage is sharing the most personal relationship with your partner. Therefore, make sure you do not keep anything inside of you, talk it out and nip it in the bud. Never drag any issue for too long.

There is not harm in saying Sorry

Sorry is the most healing word and work miracles in any relationship. When you know it’s your fault be bold enough to accept and apologize.

Avoid silly issues

Most marriages go wrong because both the partners tend to fight over silly and petty issues. Try to let go off any of such fights to survive your marriage. Switch to love instead of arguments and fights.

Plan Outings

Plan our outings from time to time. Have a discussion about the time and location with your love and stick on to that strictly. A day away from tension of work place will prove to be fruitful for your relationship.

Try to be patient

You can not expect your workaholic partner to be in a romantic mood 24X7. Therefore, be patient. Hold on to him and try to make him understand how being too much workaholic is ruining your relationship.

Make Ground Rules

Go for an open discussion with your workaholic guy about maintaining a proper balance between love and work and stick to it. Include time for date nights, partying and picnic etc.

Understand the Situation

Before going for the battle, make sure if he has a valid reason about spending much time with his work. It may be due to job competence, pressure from seniors or trials to get promotions or rewards. Give him the feeling that you very well understand his situation.

Communication is Important

Try to have a discussion with your partner about the present situation without any hesitation. Listen to him, give your suggestion and get to a solution. If he is facing any kind of crisis, your support will make him confident.

The art of Compromise

Let your man follow his dreams. Give him enough time to spend with his work if that will make him achieve so. You can even support him by helping him with his work.
