5 – Balance. Everyone has their way of conceiving the relationship, but, do not try to be like another couple in this regard. What works for your parents or best friends will not make you happy. Be careful to find the right balance with your partner so that you both feel valued instead.
6 – Routine. Even the most original couples experience a time of routine. Beware! Routine and boredom are a couple’s worst enemies. Escaping from your routine occasionally is what makes a couple last. The unexpected, spontaneity, and change are the perfect ingredients to keep the flame of love burning.
7 – Discussions. To discuss well is to know how to talk, to listen to each other without increasing the pressure, and without trying to have the last word or reason at all costs. It is not easy, but it is essential. The important thing is that your partner understands your arguments and that you understand theirs to settle things.
8 – Intimate life. The increase or decrease in desire is often a barometer of the excellent health of the couple. Sporadically, there are “empty periods,” and that is normal. Fatigue, stress, pregnancy, illness, children, work? Many reasons explain a decrease in intimate relationships, but this should not always last. Otherwise, it is a bad sign.
9 – Accept your partner as they are. It is one of the most essential rules to respect. You are in love with that man or woman for specific reasons that are sometimes inexplicable. In any case, their flaws, hobbies, and habits are part of the “package.” Wanting to change the other in your image is not love and will not make the couple last a lifetime.
10 – Be mindful of the trap of jealousy. Mutual trust is indispensable for the good functioning of the couple. Without it, the couple is built on foundations too fragile for the relationship to last. Without faith in the couple, distrust, and jealousy appear on the scene, and nothing is worse. Therefore, a sincere love relationship is made of commitment, where lies and doubt have no place.
