10. Be proactive. Don’t wait for things to go wrong before you make an effort to work on your relationship. Couples who take a relationship inventory and see what they have as well as what it is they might need in the future, are much better prepared for difficulty and have longer lasting, more successful relationships.
Being the best you can be for your partner and for yourself is one of the most rewarding parts of coupledom. It’s not very complicated, just remember to put your best self forward and behave the way you would like your partner to behave. That makes it safe for both of you to come from the heart – that is how great relationships are made.
