It’s a pretty amazing fact that Doug Kramer and Chesca Garcia Kramer have been together for 16 long years. But what’s their secret to a lasting union?
In a recent Instagram post, Doug called marriage a “beautiful thing if you just take care of it.”
For a relationship to work, Doug said that both partners must work through their troubles and misunderstandings. Never let a day pass when you argue and fight. He also said to “take down your pride” and to “say sorry first.”
And the most important thing is to “admit your own faults rather than pointing fingers. Work on what you need to do rather than trying to change your partner’s attitude.”
He also reminded husbands to “date your wife.”
While all relationships aren’t perfect, Doug’s useful marriage advice should be summed up as having equality in relationships. And for a union to work, both parties must make an effort.
