It's normal to have doubts about your partner and where your relationship may take you. It's a sign that you care about your future. Try using any doubt to seed exploration with your partner. A promising partner will also be interested.
Saying to your partner what you dislike, what annoys you or what you need on a regular basis can help keep unresolved issues and feelings from accumulating. It's easier to deal with small issues rather than several big ones all at once.
When your relationship is going well and you and your loved one are getting along, do you take the time to tell your significant other how much you love him or her? Articulating your appreciation and love helps you to feel connected.
After having children, it's important to create space for just you and your partner where you can chat, ponder, discuss and relate. It helps to purposefully meet regularly in order to stay actively in love, feel nourished and connected.
Few relationships are smooth all of the time. Friction, tension and disagreements are normal parts of any relationship. Once we accept this fact, it becomes easier to focus on navigating through these difficult parts with mutual respect.
