What defines a happy couple? There are a lot of things, including these ten behaviors. We’ve compiled a list of the top ten habits of happy couples so that we can all have the relationships we want and deserve:
1. Respect Always
Respecting your girlfriend entails valuing her for everything she does and is, even if you don’t agree on everything. It’s important to remember that to respect is to accept.
2. Goodbye Television
It’s no longer acceptable to eat while watching television. The habit of watching television every night has likewise come to an end. There is always a topic to discuss.
What if, after you’ve finished eating, you try to curl up on the couch? What if, instead of watching television, you choose a movie to watch every night? So you can discuss it at lunch the next day!
3. Stay Connected
Staying connected is another habit of happy marriages. A simple note sent in the middle of the day or a phone call home will suffice.
There is always a minute in the day to spend with your lover, no matter how busy you are. Use your imagination to come up with a variety of ways to stay connected to it.
4. Show off
Do you know a couple who publicly criticizes each other? Do you believe that couple is content? It’s never a bad idea to remind others and your partner how great it feels to accomplish something. This will foster mutual admiration and devotion. What could be better than admiring your mate (and having others notice it)?
5. I Do, You Collect (Vice Versa)
It makes no difference whether you’re cooking, cleaning, or hanging clothes… It’s done by one person and picked up by another. You cook throughout the week and pick up your spouse; on weekends, you put the washing machine in and your partner hangs the clothing.
This way, you’ll know that your partner is putting out the same effort as you are, and that you’re both fighting for the same goal: your happiness. Keep in mind that you are 50% responsible for your relationship and 50% responsible for yourself.
6. Breakfast in Bed
You might not need to take it to bed with you, but have you ever tried making breakfast for your partner? That small act means a great deal to me.
He enjoys tea, so I get up a few minutes early every morning to pour him a beautiful cup. Developing this practice is also a technique of showing him that you care about him. And I know it makes him happy, which makes me happy as well.
What do you hope to get out of this partnership? How far are you willing to take your relationship with your partner? Concentrate on setting and achieving goals with your partner.
Couples that are healthy and happy have both short- and long-term goals for themselves. Does your relationship have a meaning that you aim for and strive for?
8. Real Dreams? I don’t Know, but Happy Times
Have you ever daydreamed about something? Do you have a partner? Now is the time to get started. Share your dreams every day (or practically every day).
A trip to Africa, seeing the birth of an animal, spending a week in a far-flung corner of the globe… Why is it that just imagining it excites you? Do not deny yourself the opportunity to put your dreams into words. And who better to share them with than your partner?
Did you know that physical touch causes the release of the hormone oxytocin? It has something to do with sexual patterns and orgasm. A couple good embraces before heading to work or when you arrive home after a long day won’t hurt.
10. Routine, Killer?
Routine is said to be the cause of death. However, there are certain couples that thrive on routine and would fail if they didn’t have it. They’ve pre-programmed their weekly schedules, meals, and purchases.
Others go from day to day not knowing what they will do or how they will do it. Only you can decide what makes you happy, whether you prefer routine or spontaneity. What matters is that you recognize it and fight for it. There’s nothing else.
