14. Nurture Each Other.
It’s the small daily acts of service and thoughtful gestures that keep love alive for a lifetime and the key is understanding what your partner values most… and making that your love offering.
15. Keep Your Hearts Open.
When hearts remain open, committed, and forgiving, you will overcome any obstacles that occur along the way. A closed heart is just as painful for both partners because it destroys possibility.
16. Be Passionate About Each Other And Your Life Together.
This lifetime is far too short to play small. Blessed are those who discover, live, and develop their passion in life and for each other. May you live life to the fullest and leave a lasting legacy.
17. Make Time For Each Other.
Good intentions just aren’t enough. It really comes down to scheduling what’s most important and harnessing the power of Rituals for daily one-on-one connections and activities.
18. Reciprocate Love.
If your partner loved you better than you’ve ever been loved, you’d do pretty much anything for them, right? That’s the power of the law of reciprocation… and it works.
19. Always Support One Another.
A successful partnership is about Loyalty and trusting that your partner is there for you in good times and challenging times, too. Double the joy. Divide the pain.
20. Be Trustworthy.
Trust is a bedrock value because you can’t build anything lasting on a weak foundation. You must know that your partner has your back and keeps your best interests in mind in order to thrive.
21. Be Understanding.
There will undoubtedly be moments of disagreement. If you never have to question your partner’s intent or prefer being right rather than in love, you will resolve almost any issue.
22. Allow Yourselves To Be Vulnerable.
Too often people confuse vulnerability with weakness and that couldn’t be further from the truth. Vulnerability is the ultimate strength and if you think it’s easy, you’ve never tried it.
23. Welcome New Conversations And Needs From One Another.
Over a period of time, you both will learn and grow so in order to stay on the same page, it’s important to stay open in heart and mind and welcoming in spirit.
24. Allow For Free Expression Between The Two Of You.
In life, there are two conditions. You are either expressed, or you are repressed. As long as you keep talking, you can resolve anything if you’re committed. Once you repress, trouble is lurking.
25. Yearn To Have A Fantastic Love Together.
The first part of a healthy, fulfilling relationship starts with desire. It’s not just a desire for physical connection; it’s also a yearning to have, do and be more. Long may you yearn.
26. Have No Regrets Over The Path You’ve Forged With Each Other.
When you follow and practice all these suggestions, there’s a very good chance that you’ll truly have no regrets whatsoever because you understand the art and science of fulfillment.
