Strong couples can laugh at themselves instead of judging which makes the relationship entertaining instead of a battle. They share what they want with each other without turning each other into the enemy.
Trust is the most important thing in a marriage which takes years to build and a second to fall apart. It’s more than sexual fidelity because partners trust each other with everything from vulnerabilities, fears, painful wounds from childhood.
Positivity is imperative in relationships, especially after the honeymoon stage, a simple ‘thank you’ or ‘I love you,’ or a simple compliment for something can do a lot of things. Praising our partner strengthens our bond, love, and connection.

Love is an action word; to love means, you demonstrate your love. There is no other way to show your spouse you love them. Love can be through words of affirmation, quality time, physical touch, acts of service and gifts. You treat them specially, they are your one and only.
Successful couples strengthen friendship long-term. Couples, who give each other the benefit of the doubt, know each other well and are fond of one another make friendship a priority.
