6 Rules for Relationship Success

 

@DenisePlanteDenver

I love to scan twitter for articles, trending content and sometimes advice. @ryanstephens posted 6 rules for relationship success and I totally agree with him. I've been with my husband for over 27 years, it takes work and respect for one another, plus the advice below.

1.) No one should ever hear anything bad about your spouse from you. It's one thing to joke with friends about something trivial and quite another to demean your spouse's character. Know the difference and always discuss the latter with your spouse and no one else.

2.) Over communicate. You cannot read each other鈥檚 minds. Never assume the other person knows what you meant. Give each other the benefit of the doubt when miscommunications happen. Double check if necessary.

3.) Try new things together. Even if one of you is typically more adventurous than the other, have fun with it. Trying new things gets an individual out of their comfort zone and is often easier as a couple, allowing you both to grow stronger together.

4.) Be each other鈥檚 champion. Celebrate wins and encourage each other. Bring home champagne after a promotion at work, back each other up when engaging in that battle with your heathen toddler, work out together, etc. Never cut the other person down when they're struggling.

5.) Be grateful for each other鈥檚 contributions. Whether it be money, time, chores, childcare, or anything else, no one contribution is greater than another. And don鈥檛 keep score. If you truly value each other鈥檚 input, then the scorecard shouldn鈥檛 (and doesn鈥檛) matter.

6. Trust and respect each other. Especially in front of others, including your children. If you do not respect your spouse in front of other people, why should those people respect your spouse? Enough said.
