  1. Pick your battles

This may seem like the most simple of all tips but it holds so much truth! You and your partner are totally different people, you compliment each other in a special and unique way. When they do something that drives you totally up the wall (because they will!) just take a few minutes to breathe and ask yourself “does this really matter?”. If the answer is “YES” then take some time to think about why and the best way to approach the person you love most. Never ever discuss something that upsets you in the heat of the moment. Remember, you may regret the things you say when you’re upset but you will never regret the things you wait to say. 

2. Always say “I love you”

Never forget to keep your love alive. Kisses before you leave for work, hugs just because and small romantic gestures should never be forgotten. Tell your partner thank you, even for the little things, especially for little things. 

3. Make time for the two of you

Make time for JUST the two of you. This is especially important if you decide to have children, once that crazy journey begins it is easy to lose the two of you to hectic life. Even before you begin to build your family, between friends and family members and work you have to remember to prioritize your relationship. It’s not selfish. It’s crucial for the success and longevity of your marriage. You are the foundation of your family.

4. Communication

This is the most important tip we have because it encompasses all aspects of your marriage! In all things, communication must be the top priority. 100%. You must be able to talk it out when things make you happy or when things upset you. Don’t hold things in and let them fester or build up. Say what you need to, work it out and move on.
