Love is grand, but not always easy. Even the most compatible couple will have conflict in their relationship sooner than later. If you’re in the early dating stages, engaged or have been married for 20 years, you know a thing or two about giving in to keep the peace.
Today’s relationship advice comes from Dr. Mark Goulston, psychiatrist and best selling author. This list of 10 Habits of Happy Couples was originally posted on LifeBuzz:
#1 – Go to bed at the same time
#2 – Cultivate common interests
#3 – Walk hand in hand or side by side
#4 – Make trust and forgiveness your default mode
#5 – Focus more on what your partner does right than what he or she does wrong
#6 – Hug each other as soon as you see each other after work
#7 – Say “I love you” and “Have a good day” every morning
#8 – Say “goodnight” every night, regardless of how you feel
#9 – Do a “weather” check during the day to see if his/her day is going well…or not
#10 – Be proud to be seen with your partner
Each of Dr. Goulston’s habits has helpful explanations that make so much sense. Be sure to read the entire post at LifeBuzz.com.
