10 Secrets to Make your Relationship Last Forever

Secrets to make your relationship last forever. When you fall in love, your dream is for that love to last forever. There’s nothing worse than falling head over heels for someone.

Only to end up heartbroken and confused about what went wrong, endlessly wondering where you went wrong and how to go back to how things used to be.

So, what are the secrets of staying together? How do relationships stay so strong for so long?

Here are the 10 hidden secrets behind a relationship that last till infinity:

1. Let fights happen without turning them into world-enders

Sometimes the wrong set of circumstances hit and you and your s/o are going to fight with each other. Just because you’re mad at each other doesn’t mean you don’t love each other. And every fight doesn’t mean that the relationship is ending. Partners that go the distance can rise above petty fights and recognize what’s most important.

2. When he texts or calls you, respond to him and hold him to the same standard

No one likes to wait around for their significant other to text or call back. Prompt replies should be the standard, not the exception, and your priority should be keeping in touch with your partner.

3. Don’t make fun of each other

Even if you’re “just joking”, imagine how he’d feel if he heard you. The most important word to keep in mind here is respect. And keeping the respect in your relationship is crucial to it surviving.

4. Understand that every relationship comes with responsibilities

You’re not going to want to do the same thing as your partner does all the time. Sometimes, that means doing things you really don’t want to do – like chores, or errands, or going to his stupid work party – just because you know it makes him happy.

5. Treat each other’s families like, well, family

Becoming bigger and bigger parts of each other’s lives is all about sharing more and more. And what better thing to share than family? If his family knows you think of them as your family too – and vice versa. It strengthens the bonds of your relationship even more.

6. Surprise random gifts mean a lot

Sometimes, this comes down to knowing your partner’s tastes. And exactly what’s going to put a smile on his face at the end of the day. If you know he loves double-stuf mint oreos, and you bring him home a bag, he knows that he was on your mind all day, and it makes him feel loved.

7. Defend your partner if someone is talking smack about them

It doesn’t matter if you’re the type of person who normally shies away from confrontation and doesn’t like correcting people. You’ve got your partner’s back, and they have yours. Don’t let someone else disrespect your partner without standing up for them.

8. Remember to kiss hello and goodbye EVERY TIME

How sweet is it when he has to go to work extra early. But still stops by the bed to kiss you goodbye trying not to wake you up because he can’t help wanting to do it?

That little bit of extra intimate contact as you say, good bye at the beginning of the day. And hello at the end goes a long way and keeps the flame of intimacy burning strong in your relationship.

9. Say “I love you” without restraint

When it comes to the 3 little words, more is always better than less. This is one phrase you can’t say too much to each other.

10. Don’t be late

How many times have you gotten into a spat or a stupid fight that started because one person was annoyed because the other person was late?

If you’re chronically late or unprepared, start getting ready half an hour before you normally would. So you don’t upset your partner (or someone else that cares about punctuality). Besides, putting in the effort to be on time means your partner will perk up and put in the effort too.
