In a society where relationships don't last for much longer time (a 2-year average) and where people call a happy kinship to be totally unnatural one, you become the one who tries to pay no attention to that society and fight to keep your own relationship stronger and healthier.
However, sometimes you may feel perplexed in figuring out the actual habits of a happy couple. But, trust me the only thing you require is 'weirdness'. Yes, you read that right. It is the weirdness that can help you in keeping the magic alive between you and your partner.
And yes, for us weirdness only means the different habits that happy couples develop to set themselves apart from other couples.
Check out the seven habits of the happiest and healthiest couples:
To keep the happiness alive between you and your partner, you should try communicating with your partner every possible time and every day. Be it through phone calls, text messages or any lifeline that keeps you guys connected.
Never compare 'self-worth' with net worth as it has nothing to do with net worth. It is mostly seen that the financial stress becomes the main cause of divorce and so if you want to maintain a healthy relationship with your partner then get on the same page with the financial plan.
Never allow your fantasies from porn or romantic novels to turn into realities as lust always worsens the case and will drive your mind away from your spouse. This one could prove difficult to follow but it is worth the effort. So, focus on your spouse only.
Even if you disagree with your partner on any of the situation, do not let your tone go off-beat. You may disagree, we are not saying that marriage requires uniformity, in fact, it needs unity. So, having a mutual respect is the important thing in a relationship.
Be frank and clear in what you say. Don't depend on your spouse to read your mind. If you are not fine just say 'I'm not okay', do not act as if you are actually ok. Complications bring distance between the couples.
As said, 'It is all about priorities.' Well, it definitely is. Never keep your spouse after your careers, hobbies or interests or even kids. Your partner should be the one who needs to be prioritized the most so that your kids after seeing their mom-dad could wish to get married someday.
Remove 'divorce word' from your dictionary. Though lifelong commitment may sound weird to you but yes, it is the perfect way to strengthen your relationship.
If so, chances are you two are pretty darn happy together.
