SELF-ACCEPTANCE AND PERSONAL GROWTH
Many relationships fail because the people don't love themselves. You have to love yourself before you can love anyone else. There are things you have to accept as YOU and love yourself before you can do the same with your partner.
You have to be able to discuss anything with your partner. You have to be will to listen to your partner. I have heard people say you talk to much. Well its a great thing to talk. Its a basic foundation in your relationship.
ABILITY TO FACE CONFLICT EFFECTIVELY
Tackle crises together as one. Life is life things will happen unexpectedly and you both have to decide what is best for the both of you.
Don't expect something out of your relationship that is not going to happen. Love is not all fairy tales and butterflies. Have realistic expectations for your mate, relationship and yourself.
Couples who are committed to working together on their changing and evolving relationship have the best chance of maintaining their love and their growth. Every relationship will encounter some difficult times. But the commitment to yourself, to your partner and to your relationship will get you through.
SHARED DREAMS AND /OR SHARED INTERESTS
The more interest you take in your partner or spouse the more you will get out of your relationship. You will enjoy your time together and have more enjoyable conversations. You dreams are the same you both will be together but want different things and that is ok.
APPRECIATION OF EACH OTHER
In relationships we hit a comfort zone where some people think well I married her or him and I don't have to impress or really try anymore. Well thats a wrong way of thinking. Once couples get into that way of thinking you neglect him or her.
Being appreciating seems an easy thing to do. Most couples you talk to will say that they feel as though they are taken for granted.
Think about it what have you done to make your spouse feel appreciated lately? Make an effort to make them feel appreciated.
