Lots of girls grow up reading fairy tales about princesses and hoping to find a prince of their own. But living life in the limelight can make it hard to build a successful relationship. Whether your marriage will last depends, in part, on how you prepare for the challenges. Some of the following tips may be helpful to you and the young royals:
Don't surrender your self. Carve out a space in the marriage, keeping the activities and friendships that make you who you are. Take positive action in your own life. You'll have a more positive attitude, be interesting to your partner, and your relationship will reap the benefits.
Keep your communication honest. Talk out misunderstandings before they become full-fledged arguments. Be patient and let go of issues that aren't crucial. And stay engaged. Use the same conversational etiquette that you would with anyone else you care about and respect.
Try to compromise. Be direct, yet open and flexible as you make your way through disagreements. Truly understanding the other point of view can help resolve a conflict more easily and quickly. A gentle touch or a quick hug releases oxytocin, a hormone that facilitates bonding as well as reduces stress levels.
