Happy couples not only keep their partner’s happiness before them but they also keep in mind what they should do and what not in order to blossom their relationship. If you want to have a great bonding with your partner then you can follow these 12 essential habits of couples having a strong relationship:
1) They have Healthy communication:
Good communication is the key to a healthy and strong relationship. Happy couples communicate on a daily basis. They share their everyday hassles and even the little things that bring joy to them. They express their love by saying those three magical words – “I Love You” daily and do not sleep without saying ‘Goodnight’ even when they are mad at each other.
2) Hold each other’s back:
A relationship prospers when you understand the pain of your dear one and become each other’s support system. Embrace your partner whenever he feels low and let him pour his grief into your cup, so you can help him in overcoming it. Give more time to your partner than being imprisoned by your cell phones.
3) Have mutual respect:
One cannot go miles together if you don’t respect each other. Respecting your significant other is the greatest and purest form of love. If you want respect, give respect because you don’t own anybody in this world. This simple thing will not only develop mutual respect but will make your relationship healthier.
4) Appreciate all the nitty-gritty things:
Bud your relationship like the first flower of spring by appreciating all the little things that she does for you like preparing your favourite dish when you feel low, planning surprise parties, texting you whether you reached your office and taking care of you when you fall sick. All these little things actually count when you don’t have your partner around. So appreciate your beloved for graciously bestowing the love and care on you.
5) Choose their battles wisely:
There are highs and lows in every relationship but that doesn’t mean you have to raise your voice in order to prove your point right. Just stay calm and make your partner understand otherwise just say – ‘Sorry’. It will make your partner feel better as instead of making a big issue out of it, you are apologizing so it doesn’t affect your relationship.
6) They cherish intimacy:
Let’s not ignore the bright side of intimacy because it’s the time when you come closer to your partner and connect to a different level. Researchers have found that sex is not only pleasurable but it is also good for health. So adding a little bit of spice will not only rock your life but will make your bond strong.
7) No Comparisons:
The reason behind the successful relationship of happy couples is that they don’t compare their partner with others. The grass isn’t greener on the other side it is greener where you water it. So work on your relationship instead of praising other’s beauty, relationship, lifestyle and their happy yet hollow lives which you don’t know about. Remember that like social media, people show only what they want to while the truth remains hidden.
8) Understand the silent language of love:
There are certain gestures by which you can express your love for your beloved even when you are not physically there. If you are at the office or are out of station, you can still use the subtle ways to show your love and affection for your soul mate. Dedicate a romantic song for your beloved, call her, tell her that she looks beautiful, pull a chair for her, comb her hairs and melt her with a sweet kiss or a gentle touch of yours.
9) Spend lovable moments together:
Happy couples value each other’s company and they do it by spending quality time with each other whenever possible. If you have a tight schedule and you don’t get an opportunity to spend precious moments with your partner then the best thing is to offer help in household work like cleaning, cooking and gardening. Go together to the grocery store or supermarket, help her out while spending time with her. This will not only make her happy but it will also lessen the burden of responsibilities on her.
10) They bring out the best in each other:
Happy couples always strive to bring out the best in one other. You can also do the same by simply highlighting the positive side of your partner. Appreciate when your partner helps other people, is kind to animals and all other life forms whether big or small. A kind heart will always find beauty in humble places so try to live a happy and fulfilling life.
11) Love to be seen together:
Happy couples are delighted to be seen together, they don’t do it to show others but it’s their own way of saying how much they love and enjoy each other’s company. Walking hand in hand with your lover is the most beautiful thing that one can imagine. Go for long romantic walks, chase the winds on a cloudy day and feel blissful with your soul mate by getting drenched in the rain.
12) Have a great bond with each other’s family and friends:
Developing a great bond with each other’s friends and family is the key to a healthy and strong relationship. This will not only help you to know your partner better but it will also make you closer to their loved ones. If you don’t like socializing then you can just say hello or pass a smile when they meet you, call or text to know about their well-being. Just take the initiative to know about each other’s family and friend circle as it will strengthen your relationship.
Let thy spirit be high in love. Namaste!
A curious soul, I crave learning.
