5 Tips On How To Make Your Relationship Last Forever

1. Talk, Don’t Exchange Remarks
You live under the same roof and know everything about each other but it doesn’t mean your communication should be limited to short dialogs in the evenings. After years of marriage, our conversations come to several topics – chores, bills, and children. So, if you want to develop your relationship, you need to learn to maintain a genuine and meaningful dialog. Your partner knows you very well but they can’t read your thoughts, so you should communicate your worries or concerns directly. The important thing here is to find the right moment for your conversation. There is no use in starting your speech when your partner is cross or in a hurry. You should agree to reserve an hour every evening for a nice talk over a cup of tea during which you’ll discuss your day, emotions, plans, or share some stories.

2. Have Time For Only The Two Of You
When you have children, you act more like parents than partners. Being afraid of becoming bad parents, many couples almost give up on their intimate or spiritual connection and give their full attention to their kids. It’s a dangerous path since gradually they start viewing their family as routine or a burden they have to carry. In order to avoid this shift in your relationship, try to spend more time together as a couple. Engage in a certain activity (tennis, bike riding, dining at a restaurant) that will let you feel that you’re not only parents of your kids but also loving partners.

3. Keep Passion Alive
It’s extremely important to stay attractive and seductive in the eyes of your partner. Of course, wearing sweatpants and old T-shirts at home is OK but if a woman shaves her legs in front of her husband and a man walks around the house in his underwear, they can show their negligence towards their spouses. While love can forgive that carelessness, sex appeal can’t. Keeping passion and excitement alive is a very important task for those partners who have become very close with each other. They need to kindle sexual and emotional interest and look at each other with a fresh eye periodically. It could be a new manner of behavior, a new haircut or stylish clothes. Think how you can impress or surprise your partner. Let him or her observe you while you’re doing something you’re very good at – cooking, driving, dancing, playing the piano, etc.

4. Respect Your Partnership
Partners need to realize the uniqueness of their relationship – it will boost their confidence in each other. It’s necessary to demonstrate openly that you belong to each other and avoid ambiguous situations such as meetings with exes or being close friends with the opposite sex. A monogamous relationship is always a compromise: I don’t do some things that might hurt you and you spare my feelings, as well.

5. Support Each Other
A healthy relationship is important when one partner needs the other one’s help and comfort. It’s the readiness to postpone all your affairs and come to your loved one immediately to share their happy or sad moments. Respect your individualities and don’t try to change each other. Accept your spouse with all his or her merits and insecurities.
