If you want your relationship to last, then you need to treat your partner right. If you resent him or neglect him, then he's not going to be happy in the relationship--and if one person is unhappy, then the whole relationship will fall apart. In order to avoid that, here are a few habits of couples who last a lifetime:
1 They Don’t Let Anger Build up
Even though it's natural to try to avoid fighting, you can't let your anger build up until it destroys you. When you have a problem with your partner, you need to sit him down and talk to him about it. That's the only way that you'll be able to fix it and be happy again.
2 They Kiss Goodbye
You shouldn't forget to give affection. Before you leave the house, you should give your man a quick kiss goodbye. You should also give him a kiss as soon as you get home. The more touchy you two are, the happier you'll be.
3 They Eat Dinner at the Table
You shouldn't eat dinner on the couch while watching TV. You should set the table and eat together, so that you have a chance to talk about your day. That way, you'll always know what's going on in each other's lives, even when you're both crazy busy.
4 They Go on Actual Dates
It doesn't matter how long you two have been dating. Even if you've been married for ten years, you should still go out on dates together. You need to have one-on-one time, and you need to spend time out of the house. Treat each other the same way you did back when you were in that honeymoon stage, and you'll last a lifetime.
5 They Go to Bed at the Same Time
It's hard to make your schedule match your man's schedule. However, if you can, you should try to get to bed around the same time. If you do, then you'll have plenty of time to talk and snuggle before you drift off to sleep. There will also be a higher chance of you two getting up at the same time, which means you can eat breakfast together in the mornings.
6 They Don’t Stare at Their Phones
When your partner is talking, you should be paying attention to every word that pops out of their mouth. If you're staring at your phone while they speak, or letting your mind wander to all of the chores you have to do, then you're not giving them the respect they deserve. Dealing with that once or twice shouldn't upset your partner, but if it becomes a habit, it'll be a destructive one. Healthy couples are always ready to hear what their partners have to say.
7 They Only Say Nice Things to Their Friends about Their Relationship
If you run to your friends whenever you have a problem with your partner and start complaining, then your relationship could crumble. You should have more nice things to say about your partner than mean things. If your friends know all about your arguments, but don't know anything about the sweet things he does for you, then there's a problem.
8 They Remember to Laugh
While it's all well and good to be serious in the times that call for it, couples who remember to laugh and have fun with each other have a tendency to stay together much longer than those who don't! This is simply because they're able to go between being serious and having fun when necessary.
9 They Support Each Other
No surprise here! Couples who support each other in rough times are going to last longer than those who don't, and that's just a fact of life really! Knowing that they have your back and will always be there for you, to encourage you and be the shoulder to cry on when necessary is often what helps individuals and couples alike get through tough times, stronger than ever.
10 They Respect Each Other
Couples who last a long time respect each other, that's a given in any healthy and positive relationship. This means they respect each other's space, opinion, beliefs, thoughts, feelings and everything else that mutual respect in a relationship should be about.
If you want to spend the rest of your life with your partner, you need to treat each other the right way. Do you have these habits?
