You might think this isn’t important. However, waking up a little earlier and making something your partner likes makes your partner feel special and excited.

If you don’t have a lot of time to see each other during the week, this is a great habit to get into. You’ll find that it’s much more valuable than an expensive gift.

Surely, you’ll find that there’s an infinite amount of things you haven’t talked about. By doing so, little by little, your relationship will grow stronger. Talk about yourself, your goals, your new challenges, new expectations and your family.

Happy couples talk and have sex.

Happy couples know that there should always be space for some fun activities, and sex should never be taboo with your partner. On the contrary, talking about it and taking time to be together intimately every week is vital in every healthy relationship.

Sex helps you be more united, have better communication and improve your health. However, you don’t have to do strange positions or experiment with fetishes that you aren’t interested in. Just give yourself time to figure out what you like and don’t like.

How far do you want to go with your partner? Do you want to work on shared projects?

This is a fundamental question to ask before making plans with him or her.

Creating projects together will help you have a healthy and well-grounded relationship. Happy couples talk about their desires, fears and goals.

Take advantage of that time together while doing chores or without electronics to create new goals together or support each other on your individual goals. You’ll find that there are many things you can create in a relationship. For some, it’s having a child, while other couples prefer to travel together.

Figure out what you want to do and how to achieve it. Working together helps happy couples create more security and stability to pursue their goals.

6. Keep Your Personal Space

We’ve talked about how important it is for happy couples to spend time together. However, it’s also important for both people to have their personal space.

Once a week, try to have a few hours or a full day without your partner. Take the opportunity to go to the movies alone, spend time with your friends, visit your family or do a hobby that you like. Having a little independence in a relationship is totally healthy and necessary for both people.
