As I inched closer to my wedding day, I started asking myself some much-needed questions about partnership. After all, marriage is one of the strongest forms of partnership you can embark on in this lifetime.

So what does it look like to have a solid partnership?

So I have compiled a list of things I have learned along the way. Some of these were established a lot earlier over the years through couples I have known, and others were reinforced during pre-marital counselling sessions.

Teamwork

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much. Helen Keller

In a marriage, good teamwork manifests itself when each person works towards their strengths to make the household run smoothly. It’s beautiful to be able to rely on someone and say, ‘they have it all sorted — they are really good at doing that.’ Then, on the other hand, there will be things you are responsible for that you also do exceptionally well. So when you have your areas of strength and focus on that, it makes doing life together an easy task.
