This is, a priori, the objective of all real couples: to last as long as possible! But how exactly do you make your relationship last? It will take time, energy, and real teamwork. Because as a couple, there are two of you! Follow our few tips to find out how to do it properly over time:
Several rules to keep in mind on a daily basis
Of course, a couple must above all be a two-way journey that brings each other to one another. Your relationship should neither be unhealthy nor unbalanced. Otherwise, it is important that you resolve these problems before embarking on techniques to make your couple last! It’s okay, do you love your spouse and he/she loves you in return? Are you on an equal footing? Let’s go for effective advice!
First of all, know how to compromise. Yes, I hope you are the type to accept doing it, otherwise, we have bad news for you… Your partner cannot always comply with all your requirements, and vice versa! You will regularly have to find common ground, a happy medium between your opposing opinions. Because over time, be sure that you will not always agree. And you would as much like to avoid turning your disagreement into a conflict between the two parties!
So it goes hand in hand with the acceptance of the other. Acceptance of the other as he is, and not as you would like him/her to be, the acceptance of not wanting to change him/her to conform to your wishes. In a lasting couple, you have to know how to adapt without upsetting your habits or your rhythm of life. This requires great and beautiful mutual trust.
This confidence, you will manage among other things to maintain by supporting each other whatever happens. Do not close your eyes to your partner’s problems, or to yours! It is therefore essential that you communicate regularly, and that you confide your problems, and listen to those of your partner. Be there for each other, even more in difficult times.
Start and end the day together! If you live together obviously, maintain the complicity of your couple by taking advantage of your privileged moments in the morning and in the evening. Of course, fatigue can be an obstacle to your development, but try not to focus on it, but rather on your lovely partner!
Be happy, and attentive to all these little daily pleasures. It is far too simple, and harmful, to focus daily on what is wrong. So change your look and smile! Rediscover the world, its beauty, and that of your darling! And also, encourage each other in daily trials. You will have enough people in your life who will try to put you in the way, so do not tackle each other
Maintain the game of seduction! Over time, the routine becomes a pernicious enemy of the couple. So say goodbye to him with a few frankly uncomplicated ideas. Give yourself small original gifts for no reason, take turns organizing small surprise weekends, make yourself romantic surprises, regularly receive sincere compliments, stick cute sticky notes everywhere in your house/apartment in the address of your other half, have romantic dinners (no need to go to a restaurant, candles, a good meal, a nice outfit, and you’re there!)
Learn to speak the language of your partner, it is essential to have good and useful communication! Discover our article on the five languages in couple, you can even take the test to know yours and that of your partner!
Finally, try new experiences together, sporting, cultural, artistic, tourist, etc … Anyway, never judge your partner. Above all, respect yourself 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Respect comes through your thoughts, your actions, your words. So be careful not to belittle your partner, consciously or not. You will come outgrowing and stronger every day!
