You Better Half Should Be Your Best Friend
Friendship is the first step towards love. When I said ‘Your better half should be your best friend’ I have no intentions to force you to marry your best friend or class mate. What my intention was, to push you for having a strong friendly relation with your life partner.
Share Anything and Everything
Communication solves most of the problems alone. This means you have to speak up if something goes wrong. Have long honest discussions, share your likes and dislikes, talk about your future goals, or have small talk on a morning walk. We appreciate that!
Overlook the Arguments
Every couple; happy or discontented have arguments. What really matters is how they deal with the arguments. Do they end up breaking house furniture or they listen to each other’s view. Suppress your anger, try to put yourself in other person’s position and listen to them. You must have heard, ‘arguments are vital for a healthy relationship’.
Understanding is the Key to Win Hearts
Most of the people will agree with this, understanding is all that your relationship is based on. Understand your partner’s rights, desires, and feelings. Being the security, being the shoulder, being the person one can rely on. More understanding leads to fewer arguments.
Build Trust and Love
Ever thought of doing something small but meaningful for your partner that will not only cheer them up but also prove your love to them? Keep doing it, it also builds trust.
Patience is the Answer
Patience helps in many situations; not losing your temper manages many complicated conditions. It leads to hearing the minor things one would have ignored, while in anger. Patience is a step to maturity, and maturity leads to a firm long term married life.
