Have you ever seen an older couple holding hands while walking on the street? Doesn’t it make you wonder, how they’ve lasted this long? Do you ever look at your own partner and ask how they’ve put up with you for the past few years and how they’ll continue to do so till death do us part?
Making your love last isn’t rocket science, in fact, it can be as simple as you make it. As humans, we tend to make issues even bigger than they’re supposed to be, hence creating unnecessary drama. The saying “choose your battles” can be applied in this situation. Choose to let go of small, petty arguments and focus on what’s important. So what are some things that can help make love last?
Whoever said that once you’re in a committed relationship that you need to be sewn at the hip is 100% wrong. There’s nothing worse than dedicating your entire life to spending time with one person. Instead, you should be comfortable enough to be able to do things separately within your relationship. Having a girls night, a boys night or quality family time is vital to your relationship to ensure that you have great independence in your relationship.
We sound like a broken record but truly, communication is so important and one of the key factors to making love last. Need or want something from your partner? Tell them!
Embrace the Small Things
When you’ve been in a relationship for a long time, that small box of chocolates that hubby bought you on the way home from work may seem so small – however, it’s those small cherishable moments that you need to embrace. Think of it this way, your partner thought about how much you’d love the chocolates and spent some time and money into buying it for you. It’s a small gift but a priceless gesture.
Keep the Spark Alive
We mean in the bedroom. Sex can become boring or bland when you’ve been in the same relationship for years and years. That’s why we highly suggest keeping the spark alive by introducing new things into the bedroom. You don’t need to do anything grand and over the top, some new lingerie or lighting scented candles can get anyone in the mood!
