Show gratitude for the simple things
It’s the little details that make all the difference in a relationship. You know that he washed the dishes, and you didn’t even thank him for believing it was an obligation?
This is how current relationships go, based on what people believe to be more than the partner’s obligation. They stop being grateful and thus discourage the husband or wife from taking care of their well-being. Be grateful, always. Include the magic word “thank you” in your relationships. Thanking is one of the ways to live a life-long love.

Accept and live with the differences
We all create expectations around people. We would like them to be like us, act like us, and forget that each person has a different life story.
Maintaining a lasting relationship is difficult. Living with someone so different from you is a big challenge. When you can accept that your partner is a different person from you, you will create fewer expectations around him or her and start to take care of yourself more, supplying your own emotional needs.
