Even if it is quite normal to be different from his partner, sometimes a couple may end up no longer on the same wavelength.
Dr. Mark Goulston, international lecturer, psychiatrist and author of bestseller Just Listen, wanted to help couples who face this problem by giving them some habits to adopt in order to live a healthy and happy relationship.
If you have just started a relationship or have been sharing your life with your partner for years and are wondering what to do to maintain your relationship, here are seven good habits to have.
After all, the real relationship begins once the honeymoon is over. So if you do not find out how to leave room for love and whatever it entails, you risk losing everything.
1. Go to sleep together as often as possible
At the beginning of a relationship, the time to go to bed is far from being unpleasant because you know that it is very likely that it ends in cuddles, even very big cuddles ... The harder the relationship, the less you Have the opportunity to make love. But happy couples always like to fall asleep in the arms of their partner.
Even if one of the two must get up earlier, falling asleep together is a good step towards a healthy and stable relationship.
2. Have common interest
When time passes, you often realize that you do not have as much in common with your partner, contrary to what you think. But it does not matter !
