Show your appreciation daily.
When was the last time you said thank you to your other half? Do you kiss each other goodnight and say love you or just turn the other way and go to sleep? These may seem simple things, but if done regularly it will show appreciation and the feeling of love and connectedness between the two of you will grow.
Saying and doing small, simple expressions of gratitude every day produces big rewards. When individuals feel recognized as special and appreciated, they’re happier in that relationship and much more motivated to make the relationship better, happier and stronger.
Go-on make, small gestures that show you’re paying attention: hold hands, Hug, kiss, buy a gift, say I love you…
Don’t just make excuses not to have sex.
When it comes to a good relationship between married couples, nothing is more important than having a good sex life where both partners are gratified. Having sex isn’t just about the big “O” orgasms. It’s about experiencing the intimacy, sensation, stress relief, improved health and increased emotional bonding with your partner, the wonderful release of hormones. So make time for each other and make love for pleasuring one another not for satisfying yourself only.
Identify your “Red Flags” that cause arguments then work on them together.
Conflict happens in every relationship especially when two people live together for so long. Every couple has what can be termed as ‘Red Flags’. These are key situations or words that can trigger the next big argument. In long-term relationships, partners can use these key situations or words that put the other partner into a defensive stance. If no partner in that situation is willing to compromise or reduce tension, then that argument will heat-up and lead to more pain and misery.
This isn’t the end of love—it’s the beginning of deeper love! Don’t run from that conflict. Try to identify what caused both of you to lose composure and next time try to avoid getting into that situation or refrain from using that word. Conflict in couples is supposed to be there. In fact, it’s your key to happiness as a couple – sometimes it’s just knowing how to disagree but at the same time not to get offensive or resentful. if you both can identify these ‘Red Flags’ and commit to working on avoiding them together as a couple, it will reduce the arguments.
Meeting the needs of your partner.
One important element of being in any relationship is being there to take care of the needs of the other, this is so much more essential in a marriage. Love in any relationship is give-and-take, not just a feeling or taking what you want.
Developing a loving relationship is a process by which you get your needs met and at the same time meet the needs of a partner. When that exchange is mutually satisfying and works well, then good feelings continue to flow.
When this mutual give-and-take breaks, then things turn bitter, and the relationship heads in the direction of difficulties and pain. This is the reason why it is important to pay extra attention to what you can do for your partner to make them happy rather than just focusing on what you want.
Relationships need to be nurtured, showing appreciation is the beginning when it comes to your wife or husband, avoiding read-flags is the middle which you need to pay attention to, having passionate sex is the regular activity you both need to engage in and make time for, meeting the needs of each other is the driver to developing that lasting, loving partnership.
Increasing the quality of your relationship will take time, especially when you have other commitments. You need to both make time and continue to develop on the quality of that time together. Note, more of what you look for tends to pop out – if you look for bad you will see bad, so look for good things in your partner. Try to pay less attention to the bad things or habits they have.
Happy, healthy relationships is not achieved by chance, each and every couple who has achieved this has got it with an immense amount of collaboration and hard work between the two people.

Enjoy the happy moments and accept the unhappy moments as learning objectives to developing a healthy relationship.
