Romantic relationships are the most meaningful element in their lives, providing a source of fulfillment outside of ourselves. But ability to have a healthy, loving relationship is not innate. Even though every relationship has its ups and downs, successful couples have learned how to manage the bumps and keep their love life going.
Communication would be the major problem. All relationship problems stem from poor communication. Make an actual appointment with each other; if you live together, put the cell phones or other gadgets aside. Try to “communicate” without raising your voices. Set up some rules, try not to interrupt until your partner is through speaking.
Even partners who love each other can be a mismatch, sexually. Lack of sexual self-awareness and education worsen these problems. Plan, plan, plan. Learn what truly turns you and your partner on by each of you coming up with. If this problem can’t be resolved on your own, consult a qualified therapist.
Money problems can start even before the wedding vows are exchanged. Don’t approach the subject in the heat of battle. Be honest about your current financial situation. Acknowledge that one partner may be a saver and one a spender, understand there are benefits to both. Don’t blame. Construct a joint budget that includes savings.
Struggling over home chores had become one of the finest problems in a relationship. Most partners work outside the home and often at more than one job. So it’s important to fairly divide the labor at home. Be organized and clear about your receptive jobs in the home, and be open to your solutions.
So basically, if you want to keep your love life going, making your relationship a focal point, make it your priority. Respect one another, schedule time together on the calendar just as you would any other important event in your life. Show appreciation, compliment each other and show interest in each other.
