8 Easy Ways To Make A Relationship Work

The beginning of a romantic relationship is always exciting. Two individuals are attracted to each other, start to discover more about each other, and can see their relationship grow. Everything about a new relationship is sweet and thrilling.


Once the relationship has matured, though, the hard work begins. The phase of every little thing being a new adventure is basically over and focus switches to making the relationship last. Of course, there are still exciting things that happen, but it's not as common. It is easy to become complacent with the other person and take them for granted past the beginning phase.


Building and keeping a long-term relationship requires some work, but it’s also unbelievably rewarding. Watching yourselves grow, starting a family, buying a house, and otherwise spending your life together is wonderful.


The following eight easy ways can make your relationship last.


1) Have a shared dream for your life together


In the midst of paying bills, working long hours, cleaning the house, and taking care of several other responsibilities, it's easy to lose sight of the more significant and long-term reasons for being with your partner.


Most successful couples are those who have a shared vision, such as planning to buy a house together or go on a long vacation or start a family. The most beneficial time to do that is at the beginning of a marriage, relationship, etc. Doing so will set a solid foundation upon which you build your life together. One other benefit of early shared planning is that you're much more likely to make your dream a reality.


2. Keep a physical connection.


In long-term relationships, physical intimacy is far more than merely physical. It’s significant in maintaining the health of your emotional connection too. The physical act of love is something only you two share and revel in. It is also crucial in reigniting the passion and bringing you two back together if you drift apart.


As it happens with most elements of a relationship, it's easy to spark the physical connection in the beginning. It is more difficult with work, finances, children, physical changes, home, and whatever else makes intimacy more challenging.


Prioritizing intimacy with your partner is an excellent way to keep the passion flowing. All the stresses that come with work, family, and finances will only be a minor roadblock as you keep on re-discovering your physical attraction for each other.


3. Learn to compromise.


Sometimes, two different people mean two different viewpoints. That's most evident when you have to make any kind of decision – big or small. The two people sometimes agree and sometimes not. When there's a disagreement, don't let it become a full-fledged argument. Instead discuss it calmly and rationally.


Be empathetic and thoughtful with the other person’s view on something. Do not hear their response and immediately become defensive, while insisting that you should have the final say. If you're unsure about why your partner believes the way that they do, simply ask questions for clarity.


For smaller decisions, just take turns allowing each other to decide. For instance, if you picked which movie you will see, then allow your partner to choose the place to eat dinner.


4. Keep communication lines open.


We know that you’ve probably already heard communication is important in a relationship. “Thank you, Captain Obvious.”


Perhaps… but consider pondering that for just a moment: communication is the common denominator in all that's involved in a relationship. That can be at the beginning, middle, and end phases of a relationship. It's involved in everything, big or small – sharing emotions, buying a car or home, wanting children, forgetting to pay the bill…everything involves being able to communicate efficiently.


Communication is a vital element in understanding one another. You might think you already know your partner, but do you really know about their day? Do you know if they are overwhelmed, feeling sick, unappreciated, or a thousand other things they might be feeling or thinking? Open communication is the one way to keep equilibrium while further progressing in a partnership.


Good communication is about being comfortable enough to tell your significant other anything – good or bad. Understandably, we do not want to hurt the other person's feelings by being abrupt and straightforward. That is, however, part of open communication: being sincere whether you do or don’t feel like it.


5. Emphasize the positive.


We are somewhat backtracking to communication, but it’s critical to demonstrate your appreciation of your partner. Emphasizing the positive is rather easy when the attraction sparks fly in comparison with a 10, 20, or 30-year marriage. It is also easier when things are going well. It is still essential to tell your partner about the things that you love about them. Relationships do get stressful and busy, and that's why you should reiterate your appreciation of your significant other.


6. Anticipate change.


Research has demonstrated that your partner will change in some way every seven or eight years. The change might be drastic or minuscule, but you should expect to see some sort of difference in your partner's mind or body.


Personal change is a totally natural process in life, but we often do not accommodate for those changes in our relationships. For both partners, it's important to assess where you are at and let your partner know what it is that you need. If you don’t communicate this change, trouble might follow.


7. Always apologize when you're wrong.


Everyone makes mistakes in relationships, but part of making a relationship last for long is a willingness to admit those mistakes. If you commit a mistake, simply apologize to your significant other. Being stubborn and insisting you were right even when you were clearly wrong is actually much worse than the blunder itself.


Furthermore, it’s not enough to mumble “I’m sorry…” when your partner is walking away. Honesty and eye contact are crucial elements to an apology. Let go of your pride and state your apology with true meaning.


Also, learn to accept one another’s apology. If your partner is sincerely apologetic, don't be stubborn; accept their words and move on.


8. Don't give up.


Resiliency is critical for making a relationship last. You might incorporate all of the above elements; yet, if you aren’t steadfast in your relationship, you risk failure. Make the commitment to one another to do anything you can to stick it out through the hard times.


No relationship is perfect. It does not matter how great a relationship seems from the outside; there are going to be trials no matter what. It’s part of sharing a life with another person.


A long-term relationship is beautiful, but it isn’t easy. It isn't supposed to be easy; it is supposed to be overwhelmingly worthwhile. Hopefully, this article will make your current and future relationships more beautiful and long-lasting.
