Many people in their daily grind forget to flatter their partner. We get busy with all our daily tasks and work and by the time the two of you come together in the evening your both exhausted. Then your partner in life becomes more of a room mate rather than your spouse and you begin to lose touch with one another. Not feeling like you have interest in your partner anymore is one of the number one reasons a marriage fails. When you think of your partner, remember why you fell in love with them. Try to focus on the things you love about them, not that they forgot to take the trash out. Be sure to compliment your partner as often as possible. After years of being in a relationship we forget to compliment our partner. Don't leave your partner feeling like they are no longer attractive to you. When your spouse begins to feel like you are no longer physically attracted to them and your not giving them the attention they need, that is when they will turn to someone else to fulfill their needs. That is the exact opposite of what we want. So, put your pride aside and give them the attention and love they need to be happy. You will be surprised of the results. We all know how to get into a relationship, but we forget the important things we need to do to stay in a relationship.
*Show your spouse you truly genuinely care about them.
*Pay attention to them when they are speaking to you and be an active listener.
*Keep the lines of communication open- always let your spouse know how you are feeling. Constructively communicate with them without lashing out is the key.
*Talk to them, not at them and deal with the issue at hand.
*Leave the past in the past where it belongs.
*Leave each other little notes somewhere, just simply saying "I love you."
*Have fun with texting one another. Once your the little buzz in the pocket, you may be the little buzz somewhere else.
*Never let your spouse feel as though they need to turn to someone else for emotional support.
*Always have fun together. Goof around and laugh a little. You will enjoy the time you spend together a lot more.
