"10 Tips to a Happy Relationship!"

It’s not working. Your relationship with your partner
is not the same. What can you do?
These days more than 50% of all marriages fail for some
reason. Usually the marriages are because of too much
criticism over money or the children.

Often when people break off their relationship, something
is missing. The “spark” has gone out of the
partnership/commitment.

People who have been married a long time made a decision
to love their partner and work at their commitment.

Perhaps these 10 tips will help you spruce up and lighten
up your relationship.

1. Lighten up! Yes, don’t get so serious all the time and
break the tension. Poke fun at yourself and your partner.

2. No Arguments. You two may be different in your opinions
in areas like politics and religion, avoid those topics.
Talk about things you enjoy and have in common.

3. Time For Each Other. Set up specific times when you can
get together. It doesn’t matter what you do; shopping,
errands, movie, events. Put it on your calendar and make
sure you keep the appointment.

4. Start Over. Remember when you first met? What sparked
the relationship? Were you doing new and exciting things
together? Well, do it again.

5. Forgive Each Other. Before you forgive your partner,
forgive yourself. Everyone makes mistakes and everyone
deserves another chance. Get over it and get on with your
lives.

6. Touch. Your body loves to be touched. Do it for your
partner; play with their hair, rub their hand, a soft kiss,
a pat on the leg, back rubs, foot rubs. But do it in an
affectionate way, not sexual.

7. Some space. Being together all the time may be cramping
you and your partner’s style. Spend some time apart. Let
him go hunting/fishing, while you go to the library or a
concert.

8. Predictable. Same ole, same ole. Day after day. Bored?
A creative a habit? Or you get into a habit/schedule, break
it! Do something on the spur of the moment. Surprise your
partner and do it together.

9. Secret Getaway. Plan a trip or a place, where the two
of you can be alone. Take your time and enjoy each other.
Take it slow and make it romantic.

10. Communicate. A lot of times when relationships are having
problems, the talk stops. Here is where you need to learn to
listen to each other. Each of you should be able to just talk
about anything and everything. Don’t make any judgments.
Listen. Let down your guard, no yelling or arguing. Just
talk to each other.

Hopefully these tips will get you on your way to improving your
relationships.
