8 Latinos Reveal Their Secrets To A Happy Marriage

8 Latinos Reveal Their Secrets To A Happy Marriage

#1: “Be your spouse’s ride or die.”

This doesn’t mean taking a page out of Bonnie and Clyde’s book and committing an actual crime!.“It’s about being there for the good and the bad,” Jesse, 37, said. “If your man is having a crappy time at work or isn’t where he wants to be, you should be there to lift him up instead of kicking him when he’s down.”

Jesse — who has been married for 11 years — also believes couples should support each other’s dreams and aspirations, and focus on each other despite the responsibilities of parenthood. “Priorities change after kids, but we make sure to keep our relationship strong and give ourselves much-needed “us” time,” she continued. “With kids, it’s easy to fall back and make it all about the kids.”

#2: “Have a sense of humor.”

A wife for nine years and counting, Lourdes believes laughter is the best medicine for a happy relationship. “So you want to stay married,” she began. “Then have a sense of humor!” For Lourdes and her husband, Ray, keeping a positive mindset is important. “It’s not a business agreement,” Ray told us. “It’s a relationship, and some parts of it are not that serious.”

So laugh lots with your spouse, chicas!

#3: “Play to each other’s strengths.

Janice, 35, and her husband, Jayone, from Rochester, NY, married young. After 11 years of matrimony, these high school sweetheart have learned how important it is to play to each other’s strengths.

“For example, I’m bad at laundry and groceries,” Janice admitted, “So he handles that. I do the cooking, because he makes a mess and I hate cleaning!” But it’s not just about household chores and parental duties. “It’s about appreciating what makes you different and making it work for your marriage and family,” Janice added

#4: “Schedule Date nights.”

A 16-year marriage is quite impressive and Hipatia, 39, from NJ swears by date nights. And they don’t even have to be crazy expensive!  “We try to do one every two months,” she explained. “A movie or dinner or dancing!” The parents of two also try to sneak in a couples getaway twice a year. “Vacations without kids rejuvenate a marriage. Having kids is great, however, a break from routine is a must!” And in their case, it works.
