Positive thinking is not a thing that can be practiced 24 hours a day, but sometimes you should turn a blind eye to minor sins for the sake of something more that your chosen one or chosen one gives you.

To prevent your relationship from turning into a pumpkin over time, remember these simple things.

10 ways every couple needs to know to strengthen their marriage

01
Do not take off your rose-colored glasses

After years of being in a relationship, it's easy to forget that your spouse is actually a separate whole person. And, as you know, it is human nature to make mistakes.

There are wrongs that are incompatible with continuing the relationship. If a partner loses his entire salary in a casino, his imperfection will be noticeable even after 10 optimistic filters. But many problems, because of which you boil in a second, are not worth a damn. Therefore, before you lose your temper, assess the situation sensibly. For example, a partner cooked dinner but didn't wash the dishes after themselves. You can get angry about dirty pots, or you can be glad that you don't have to get up to the stove.

Positive thinking is not a thing that can be practiced 24 hours a day, but sometimes you should turn a blind eye to minor sins for the sake of something more that your chosen one or chosen one gives you.

02
Remember the past

Your relationship has a rich history full of romantic, touching, memorable events. Try to refresh your memory regularly. Love letters, a photo album, or even an Instagram feed will do. It will remind you of what brought you together and what made you stay with this person every day.

03
Plan a common future

Surely you tried to predict what you will be like in 5, 10, 15 years. Develop long-term plans with your partner. You can, for example, make a list of common wishes and cross out the fulfilled ones. Going to a carnival in Rio, learning to dance hip-hop, seeing what your first home will look like in 30 years - your plans don't have to have any deep meaning. The important thing is that they are, you work on them together, and it really brings them closer.

04
Don't Stop Thanking

Don't take your partner for granted. A simple "thank you" for actions or words raises your mood and motivates you for further achievements. On difficult days, when you are ready to end a relationship, you can simply re-read the correspondence to appreciate what you have. But only if the chat is filled with warm words, and not demands to buy bread and milk.

05
Take time to socialize

Routines like preparing dinner, doing laundry, cleaning up take a long time, but it is necessary to set aside at least a few minutes for conversations. You know each other best, so you are able to help, support, encourage. A person can share some problems only with someone really close, and often a trouble divided into two is perceived as less serious.

People change during a long-term relationship, but constant communication will help you move in one direction.

06
Watch romantic movies

Discussing relationship movies can replace counseling and prevent divorce. According to research University of Rochester, discussions about five films a month halve the divorce rate for couples in the first three years of marriage.

07
Communicate expectations and desires

Unjustified expectations hurt. But you shouldn't make marriage a platform for telepathy exercises. If you speak clearly about your desires, there are more chances that they will be fulfilled.

08
Touch each other

To prevent love in marriage from transforming into less romantic feelings, touch each other more often. Hold hands, hug, kiss - according to research, it is fundamental to communication and networking. In particular, it is touch that helps convey love, gratitude, and compassion.

09
Don't hurt other people's feelings

If in one of the previous points that you know each other the best was an advantage, then during fights this is a big disadvantage. You are aware of vulnerabilities and can hit very hard in the heat of an argument. But it is better not to uncover a serious weapon.

Even if you are very angry or upset, do not use your knowledge to break or destroy your partner. A man is a rather fragile system, try to protect him.

10
Leave your partner personal time

Almost every person needs to be alone at least sometimes . And this desire must be treated with respect. It does not necessarily mean that your partner has fallen out of love or is angry with you. Maybe he was having a difficult day and he is inventing punishment for the offenders in his head, or he wants to be in silence after a long wait in line at the post office.
