  • Go To Bed At The Same Time

Intimacy is key to keeping your relationship alive and healthy, and bedtime is the closest and most intimate time of the day that you likely spend together. So keep the TV off and the smartphones out of the bedroom and focus on each other.

  • Have Fun Together

And I mean actively seek to do things together you both enjoy, and do those things regularly. This may seem obvious, but you'd be surprised how many couples become more like roommates or business partners - especially after kids - and stop having fun together.

  • But the truth is, if your relationship doesn't have lighthearted good times in it, it's not going to last. Life isn't a carnival ride to be sure, but play and fun DO need to be priorities in your relationship if you want it to remain healthy and stable.

As often as possible. The world has a way of wearing people down with criticism and feelings of not being good enough. As a couple, you should be each other's biggest fans and strongest supporters, making each other feel good - or at least good enough. So focus on the good,
