Cupid’s Advice:

Marriage is a lifelong commitment that takes effort. It is a beautiful thing to be able to go through life with your best friend by your side. You want to ensure that your partner still feels the love that you have in your heart for them as you continue in your marriage. Cupid has some ideas on how to continuously work on your marriage:

1. Give complements to your partner and to yourself: Take time to give honest complements to your partner when you feel as they deserve the recognition. Don’t be shy to tell your partner that you really did appreciate the simple action that they did of pulling out your chair for you at the dinner table and let them know how much you admire their kind soul. In addition, don’t forget to complement yourself on how caring you are in your relationship! It may sound silly but look in the mirror and complement yourself on the efforts you have made in your marriage.
