Simple Tips For Keeping Relationships Going Strong

Have you ever dreamed of waving a magic wand to make your love last longer or bring back some of the magic that was once there between you and your partner? If there is magic, love will be all around. Never a sorrow.

Or, is it better to learn, as some people do, the secrets of success from grandparents and other relatives or friends. Since the latter is probably more accurate, here are some tried and true tips from people who have enjoyed long, happy relationships.

Continued Dating

Keep dating each other. Even if life seems too busy, meet at the end of the evening for something light and easy, like viewing your favorite sitcom (record it if necessary) together or playing a game of Euchre or Ludo.

Give Space

Give each other some space. Either you trust or you don’t. Get on with life, though. People need time alone and time with their mates and other friends. Be sure to give and take your fair share of space.

Try To Forget

No need to “always” remember the bad things that happened during an argument. Actively “forget” sometimes. Be the first to apologize and make up. Go for it! What have you really got to lose?

Keep The Fun Alive

Couples tend to have fun on dates, then get married and become too serious. Lighten up. Head to Games{silverbird} and join in any number of games, for example. Or head to a local rental shop{at Shoprite} and rent an Xbox or other game system and share joy in playing some games.

It’s Okay To Disagree

Agree that it’s okay to disagree on some issues, and leave it at that. No need to create a new religion or political movement just to appease both of you. You don’t have to agree on everything. You simply won’t, and that’s perfectly okay.


Take time to look back, refresh your memories, and share what brought you together. Especially when times are difficult, lean back and rely on these old memories as your foundation, and glue yourselves back together with them (not literally, of course!)

Don’t Forget To Make New Memories

Make some memories together. Enjoy special moments, special anniversary dates and events. No need to be elaborate. For example, maybe you enjoyed watching a movie at the cinema. You might schedule more time to go again. Make it a regular event. Collect postcards with balloons on them, playing cards, throw pillows…over time it becomes a theme.

Start now with these simple ideas to keep your relationship with your special person and make your love last longer. Most important of all, couples can happily stay together when they understand and complete one another.
