So in this day and age when divorces are at an all time high, what keeps couples together? What keeps a partnership strong? In our relationship it's "not sweating the small stuff". We don't argue over the mundane; if its not super important, why argue? Its just not worth it! Let it go! Don't "stir it till it stinks"! When there's a degree of give and take in a relationship... things just work better! Smoother sailing= a happy life!
Keep having fun together!! Let your silly side out, relax together, cook together, clean together etc.; appreciate your partner for anything he or she does, even if its not done perfectly. A person will almost always do more than expected if they feel appreciated!
I like little rituals, like Friday take out, or the way we always pause so I can say the blessing over our meal or our good morning kiss before "bae" heads out the door! Variety can be the spice of life but little routines establish a deep connection too.
"I'm a newlywed" you say, "Wait another 10 years"! Maybe so... but I believe that positive things like this, combined with honesty, respect and love will carry us the distance! Happy Valentines day all you cats and kittens!
