Everyone knows that marriage is hard work, not always shiny, not always perfect.
So, what you ask is the way to make a marriage or long-term relationship last?
Here is a compilation of 20 Secrets of Couples who Stay Together Forever.
I like this list. A. Lot.
Honestly, a bunch of it is common sense, you know basically don’t be a jerk but sometimes it is nice to be reminded of the little things that really can make the biggest difference.
Here are our two favourites:
Some fights are just fights. They don’t have to be deal breakers. You can be madly in love with a person and still be mad at that person. Fights don’t have to spell The End. Couples that stay together choose the relationship over the conflict.
Sometimes you have to say no to invitations so you can spend time with each other. Just because your calendar is blank one night doesn’t mean you have to agree to plans if someone asks. Life gets weirdly busy as you get older. It’s nice to use that free time to just be together.
What makes your relationship last?
