If you’re in the mood for a love story that pulls on your heartstrings and takes you on an emotional journey, look no further than Priyanka Chopra’s newest Hindi movie, The Sky is Pink. It acts as the true story of Aisha Chaudhary, a teenager who had pulmonary fibrosis whose parents dedicated their whole lives to helping her survive. Choosing not to focus on the illness aspect of the story, the film is narrated by the daughter, who instead details the incredible love story of her parents. She lets you know quite early on that she’s speaking from beyond the grave, but her retelling of her parents’ 25-year relationship is nothing short of hilarious, heart-warming, and, at times, heart-wrenching as it touches on the beauties of life and death.

Cupid’s Advice:

The Sky is Pink inspires us and how we treat our relationships. To see a couple go through such trials and tribulations spanning 25 years, and yet they still choose one another at the end of the day is something that should be enacted in our own lives. Knowing that the film isn’t an act of fiction but based on a true couple makes its impact even greater. Here is some of Cupid’s relationship advice on how to have a loving and lasting marriage, yourself:

1. Learn how to handle fights: It shouldn’t be shocking to anyone that relationships will have their fair share of fights, but it is in how you deal with those fights that matter. Surprisingly, some studies have shown that arguing is one of the healthiest things a couple can do. It allows both you and your partner to explain why you feel the way you do and to find a way to solve the conflict. Couples that engage with arguments and learn how to handle fights are more likely to be satisfied with their marriage than couples who choose to ignore conflict, altogether.

2. Don’t always empathize: We’ve all been in conversations with our significant other where one of us is having a bad day and the other simply says, “me too.” Saying “me too” can actually be damaging to a relationship because it can become a barrier to real communication. Those words shut the other person’s feelings down even though we think we’re being empathetic. Instead, if your partner is having a rough day, choose not to empathize but to listen to what happened and offer your support. Having a commitment to listen to their problems is something that can make all the difference.

3. Be a little old-fashioned: It’s not always bad to have old-fashioned morals. When it comes to marriage, having traditional views on certain issues is actually a good thing to ensuring a long-lasting marriage. Is my partner going to be able to provide? Are they going to be a good parent? How do they get along with my friends and family? These are all questions that can determine if a marriage will be worth the long-haul. Don’t get caught up in the feeling of love, because reason and logic have to be important aspects of your relationship too.
