I attended a marriage preparation course 18 years ago.. What strikes me most till now is “the decision to love”.

Make a concerted effort to express your love via your spouse’s love language. Hubs tries to make me laugh at least once everyday. I try to give him a bear hug everyday.

We go for weekly date nights and would regularly talk about our AFIs( areas for improvement) for our relationship.
I agree! One must not lose an effort to show how you care and love your partner, show it do not just say it. Regular talks with anything is absolutely healthy for couple. Talk from random things to problems to future plans. These things all matters in a relationship.

Doing things together, having fun. It's also very important to diversify your life. New places, new emotions, new feelings!

1. Remind your partner (and yourself) that you appreciate them.
2. Say thank you for the little things.
3. Practice honesty, even when you’re ashamed.
4. Take care of your appearance.
5. Foster relationships outside your marriage.
6. Watch your words.
7. Put away the jumper cables yourself.
8. Relish the silence.
9. Recognize the ebb-and-flow.
10. Be kind.
11. Maintain intimacy and passion, both inside and outside the bedroom.

What I do is to build a culture of appreciation with my wife - always praising her whenever it is appropriate to do so and be proud of what she has done.

Then I make sure that I continue to romance her through small deeds like buying her favourite snacks etc.

This definitely is what we needed, appreciation from our partners. But of course we have to appreciate each other for a healthy relationship. Small deeds can mean a lot especially if your partner has been through a lot.

Compliments works very well... also encourage your love ones to contribute more

Compliments and appreciation go well together.. If you apply it every once in a while it can help both of you to be reminded how you feel for each other when you first met.

If both of you have a strong faith, you will get all through obstacles/problems that a relationship can have.. Understand that each of you has his/her own attitude and the key is to help each other in a lot of ways.

We treat each other as best friends. No secrets. No lies.
