How do these couples stay in love, in good times and in bad? Fortunately, the answer isn’t through luck or chance.

Happy Couples and Their Secrets
1. Develop a realistic view of committed relationships.
Recognize that the crazy infatuation you experienced when your romance was new won’t last. A deeper, richer relationship, and one that should still include romance, will replace it. A long-term relationship has ups and downs, and expecting it will be all sunny and roses all the time is unrealistic.

Even in the strongest of relationships, there will be times when small irritations can cause mountains to grow out of molehills, so it’s important to keep striving for better communication.
As the essence of relationships, communication has a great impact on every aspect of life. Yet the channels of communication can sometimes become blocked, even among people who care deeply for each other. It’s often difficult to put our feelings into words or concentrate fully when our partner speaks. Unhelpful silences or verbal attacks can arise and drive us further apart.
Common barriers to communication include: threatening or unpleasant behavior such as criticism and bossiness; only hearing what we want to hear; getting bored or distracted; and not expressing our point clearly. Fortunately, working on our communication skills helps us to break through this sort of impasse. So follow these tried and tested tips to stop you reaching for the expletives and reach an understanding instead.
No matter what else is going on, try to make time for your partner on a day-to-day basis. Good communication is about deepening your understanding of each other, not simply avoiding arguments. Easier said than done, of course, but making time to talk is worth the
Not all relationships are going to stay strong and last forever. This is not a bad thing though. It just means that you have taken a chance on someone and when the relationship ends you have learned something new about what you don’t want in a partner. Essentially, it makes looking for the perfect partner even easier because you have a new knowledge of what you want.
But ending a relationship is easier said than done. Even if you are aware that your relationship is unhealthy and that it needs to end it can still be hard to chop the ties between you two.
So if you realize that your relationship is unhealthy and that it needs to end but you are having a hard time convincing yourself of that fact, then here are 5 reasons that will help you really understand why breaking up will be the best thing you ever did.

If your relationship is not in a healthy and in a happy state then you are probably experiencing many negative emotions on daily basis. Too much complaining, hopelessness, lack of control, and other negative feelings can cause a huge amount of stress on
The conspiracy not to tell
Marriages are often held together by a joint conspiracy to limit communication. In many cases, an unspoken agreement is understood by both partners at a deep level—a level of fear, safety and security. Partners conspire to restrict and filter their interactions because, deep down, they sense the danger involved in expressing themselves more openly. Once this pact of limited communication is broken, the lid of Pandora’s box can blast open and an explosion of issues that were previously concealed can fill the air.
Open communication always forces unspoken needs, hurts and resentments that lie beneath the surface to spring forth. The stability and harmony that noncommunication preserved are shattered once newly voiced concerns break the calm. This disruption can certainly be a positive factor in making a marriage better, but only if the partners are prepared and equipped to deal with the issues and conflicts that erupt.
To chance such openness, you need strong confidence in your spouse’s devotion and commitment to the relationship. You need to trust that your mate is ultimately “with you” rather than “against you.” You have to believe that he or she has your best interests at heart, especially when the two
When in a relationship, two people not only live with each other and make love but they share their lives with each other. However, at times, life could get boring. We are human being and we are used to change. How many times do we change our look, dress, taste, etc. in life?

The pain that one feels when he/she was cheated on by his/her spouse is immeasurable. And infidelity is one of the reasons why many marriages end up in divorce. When your spouse has cheated on you, there are a lot of questions that would come to your mind such as were you at fault and why your spouse went astray. If you are the wife, you may be asking yourself, have you not loved him enough? Did you not satisfy him enough? And many other questions that are hard to fathom for a lot of individuals who have encountered this type of marital problem.
It is hard to accept the situation when you are betrayed by someone you have given your trust to. This betrayal can cause a lot of anxiety, as well as physical and emotional pain. How can you overcome this excruciating pain? This kind of pain can possibly cost you, your life’s happiness.

Whenever someone asks me how I met my wife, I proudly say, “Online!” But of course, I think to myself… Where else would one meet up with one’s significant other nowadays?
Actually, my attitude is probably not the norm in society. At least not yet. But before long, it wouldn’t surprise me to find that online dating has surpassed other forms of meeting one’s significant other. Why? Because it is more efficient, produces better matches (and dates!), and allows love to bloom when the silly things (such as actually having something in common) are already taken care of ahead of time.
Using online dating services are far more efficient than other methods of dating. Getting set up by friends or family is purely a hit-or-miss proposition. While well-intentioned, friends and family often don’t really know us half as well as they think they do. We don’t often share all of the intimate details of our lives, our likes, dislikes, hopes, and dreams for the future with everyone. So people can get somewhat biased ideas of what we’re like, because they only see what we’re like with them.
Office romances, while convenient, are often fraught with possible problems, danger, and role conflicts. Meeting
Trust issues in a relationship aren’t uncommon. After all, whether it was in your current relationship or in a past relationship, who hasn’t been hurt at some point? I’m sorry to say that part of being human is to be hurt at some point in your life. The point though isn’t to use your past pain as a reason to build a shell around your heart, but rather as a way to learn to be vulnerable and trust again despite the fact you might get hurt.
Here are a few tips that you can use to help rebuild trust in your relationship.
First of all, have an honest talk about the problem. If you were hurt by your partner, have a conversation with them about how that made you feel. The first part of healing is to be open and express your feelings. Trust issues tend to revolve around secrecy and withheld information. Opening up is a way to reverse this pattern.
It can help if your partner apologizes to you, but this should come from them and it shouldn’t feel as if they are being forced to do so.
Second, it can also help if you are willing to drop the role of
In fairytales, you usually anticipate finding “the one” and end up living happily ever after. Well, for fairytales – YES! In the real world – maybe so. Finding yourself in a relationship is a good thing since you find someone that syncs with your personality. You might find his smoking attractive or her corky personality interesting; in any case is, you discover somebody you’ve totally fallen in love with.
But whatever the case is, the question still remains – will you spend your life with him? You might think this is an easy question, but it’s surprising that even if you’re years into your relationship, there are some individuals who can’t appear to get married. The issue doesn’t lie from case to case itself, but instead it’s the attributes each carries that hinders them, as well as you, to advance into marriage. Here are some from the common problems you may have thought or experienced.
- The perfect partner. To be honest, there is no such thing as a perfect partner. Setting this sort of standard programs your mind to the point where you won’t be satisfied with less. This mindset is self-defeating because you know it’s most unlikely you’ll meet somebody that
Much too often in life, I have come across couples or one person in a couple who complained about the significant other in their life notlistening to them. These people often hear, but do not listen. And this single point is what brings about the downfall of a good portion of relationships today.
Listening skills are not automatic. We grow up communicating very differently from one another, depending on a wide range of factors, gender being just one of them. But gender is usually the easiest to focus our attention on because the generalizations made about the genders hold a grain of truth in their words for all of us. “He’d rather watch football than talk to me.” “She’d rather talk on the phone with her girlfriends than go out with me.” “He’d rather go out on a night with the ‘guys’ than go out to dinner with me.” “She’d rather go shopping than go golfing with me.” And so on… Even if not always or true, we look at these examples, and things like them, and realize, “Hey, yeah, there’s a bit of me in there.” That’s why comedians so often use gender-related material to make their jokes — it’s
Quite often, when a relationship starts to get dull and boring, it can be a signal that it will soon unravel and come to an end. Being in a boring relationship can be draining on a person, and it can often make you wonder why you are in it in the first place. Of course, you can expect a little boredom here and there, but when there is too much– it can be enough to make you wonder whether or not you would be better off without having that person in your life. Before you get too drastic in your thinking, be aware of the fact that you can make your relationship more interesting as long as you can get a little creative and be willing to work on it a little.
If you feel like it is worth saving and salvaging, there are some things that you can do to bring back that edge that was there in the beginning. Bringing back the spice into your relationship is something that can be done, but you and your partner both need to be involved in doing this. If it’s only you making the effort, then at some point you are going
It is completely normal for people to find it difficult to forgive and forget. One who is betrayed or hurt by other person simply can not just let it go immediately. The person who did wrong must suffer the consequences of what they did. However, sometimes, we just have to forgive and forget. This is really important especially in a relationship where situations can really go wrong that sometimes you just have to forgive and forget. Both couples should easily put everything behind them and be able to start all over again. Just remember that you need to do this willingly. If you do not forgive and forget wholeheartedly, it will be just useless.
Do not make it such a big deal
Some things are meant to be forgotten. If he or she did something wrong and it is just a minor mistake, you can just forgive and forget it already. If you learn to do this properly, you can be sure that everything will be okay for you and your partner in the long run.
By forgiving, you are essentially forgetting it. Forgiving without being able to forget is completely useless. Letting things cool off between you and your partner will
No one has the perfect relationship and there is no definition for a perfect relationship. The main thing in a relationship is both of you being happy. It can be easy to forget the simple things to make a relationship work, the main things you need to do this are trust, freedom, communication, honesty and spending quality time together.
There is no relationship without trust. This is a very important factor when considering how to have a successful relationship but trust can also be hard to find in your partner. However, learning how to trust people can be difficult if you have previous trust issues or if they have a bad reputation for being able to trust them. Keep in mind the following points when learning how to trust someone:
o Open minded
o Start a fresh
o How do they treat others
o Second chance
Freedom is another key factor to having a successful relationship. It is healthy to still be able to have your own space away from your partner, whether it is spent on your own, or a day out with your friends. You don’t want to feel isolated in a relationship. Things start to get too much if you only ever spend

As someone who needs to understand how to stop marriage fighting, continue reading for a few methods which can be used to mitigate the marital problems that you may encounter.
Avoid Serious Conflict
A crucial part of realizing how to stop marriage fighting is being able to keep calm, and occasionally, this will require taking some time apart.
Sometimes conventional wisdom, such as ‘don’t go to be upset,’ just does not hold ground. How many times have you headed off to bed upset with a coworker or a friend, but when you woke up, things just looked different to you?
Marriage is not about winning. As a matter of fact, when one person ‘wins,’ both parties lose. You didn’t get married to win or to be right. You got married because you wanted to be a complete unit; you pledged to be on the same team. Don’t lose sight of that.
Instead of getting angry and taking everything overly seriously,
