Millennial brides and grooms are all about placing their ambitions over everything. And why shouldn’t they? Girls and boys, these days do not like to be held back and even travel miles if they have to make life better for themselves. This often leads to couples being placed far away from each other physically and that sometimes causes trouble in the romantic paradise. If you too are a bride or groom dealing with the issues of a long-distance marriage, here are our top 9 tips to help you make things buttery smooth. Have a look!

1 Create a world of trust & safety

The number one reason that makes most people scared of long-distance relationships is the lack of trust. Before either of you heads out, ensure that you have created for each other a space of trust, safety, and respect. Speaking out of your heart, sharing your fears, and addressing each other’s insecurities would help build an everlasting bond of trust between the two of you. Tarot card reader Munisha Khatwani’s recent marriage, for instance, is a long-distance marriage for almost a year. Read about her wedding here. 

2 Work as a team

Life wouldn’t always be perfect. There will be days when either of you is going to be busy with other commitments and won’t be able to adhere to the pre-decided calling schedules. Here, both partners are required to compromise a little to ensure seamless communication. After all, isn’t marriage all about making things work through it all?

3 Sharing is caring

From little details of how your day went to meaningless pictures of the things around you, share everything that’s on your mind with your partner. The more you share will bring you closer and the miles between you would start hurting less. Sharing little details also helps build trust between two individuals and makes them feel secure about the relationship.

4 Zoom dates

Schedule weekly zoom call dates with your better half to catch up on each other’s lives. Make it feel like a real date with a little mood lighting, some music, and of course, wine! Who knows, the mood might just get you into having some naughty time (wink!)

5 Don’t give up on efforts

Efforts are everything. Sometimes, when nothing works in your favor, the fact that you have been putting in a lot of effort is enough to make your partner hold on to the relationship. Try as hard as you can to sustain your bond and make it grow. After all better days are coming, right?

6 Try to meet

Yes. Please make the most out of the first opportunity you have to go see your partner. No matter how big technology gets, nothing will ever beat the satisfaction of meeting in person, holding hands, and cozy cuddles. So, catch the first flight you get and surprise your bae! Trust us, nothing will make them happier.

7 Send Gifts!

Who doesn’t like receiving random cute stationery, food, and flowers as surprises? When times get tough and it becomes impossible for you to fly down to hug bae, use Amazon, The Wedding Brigade, Zomato and Swiggy to send them some love. Because gifting is a legit language of love. We approve.

8 Try to understand each other

Understand each other a lot. Sometimes, from PMS to work pressure to hunger-induced anger, there are a thousand things that can upset a person. Distance makes it difficult to communicate and arguments arise. Understanding each other will help reduce these arguments and bring you closer to each other’s hearts.

9 Stay committed

Yes. Before anything else, make sure that you are 100% committed to your relationship and your partner. Let nothing stimulate you to stray away from your relationship. Because commitment is all that matters in the end.
