Top ideas to better your relationship

Things to do to make your marriage work

This is a list of marriage rules and reminders—all of which, we hope, are cheaper and more fun than therapy.

No fisticuffs in public

Take this example: We were at a picnic with a group of friends when the wife of one of the couples present casually announced that she had bought their family a house. In another country. Without consulting the husband. He turned about 14 shades of red, and they began fighting at the top of their lungs. Cut to everyone else with their heads down, forensically examining their egg-salad sandwiches as though they contained the secrets of the human genome. You do not want to be That Couple Who Ruined the Otherwise Delightful Picnic.

Accept that everybody needs alone time

Sometimes your spouse needs to go to the bathroom for 45 minutes...

Love isn’t complicated or painful. In fact, it’s effortless. As long as you keep these 23 must-know tips and relationship advice for women in mind.

Play with him

Playfulness is the one thing that holds a happy relationship together more than anything else. Just because you’re past your childhood doesn’t mean you should act all grown up all the time!

Men are easily influenced

By other men around them in their life. If his friends and other guys in the room think you’re a dream catch, he’ll fall more in love and stay more in love with you, and avoid straying away from you.

Listen to his point of view

Before arguing back or cutting across him. It’s the easiest way to prevent tempers from rising. And don’t be condescending either!

You can’t change someone

Best relationship books to read

When compiling this list of the best relationship books of the past decade, some overriding themes were apparent: Men are sex-obsessed cave men. Women are under the mistaken impression that they’re living inside a real-life romantic comedy. But true love and soul mates do exist. It’s been a confusing decade for the sexes, but we’re confident that we’ll figure it all out eventually. Here, a list of the ten most iconic relationship books of the ’00s.

He’s Just Not That Into You by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo

The mother of all relationship books was written by Sex and The City scribes Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo. Their advice is simple: Men chase what they want—and will continue to pursue who they want—for as long as they want her. If they’re not calling, they obviously don’t want you...

Top cities to help enrich your relationship

Looking to rekindle the flames with a romantic escape? These destinations are perfect for woo-ing your significant other.

Venice

If Venice didn’t exist it would still probably come to life in some Hollywood screenplay for the imagined backdrop of a romantic feature. Even so, it would most likely not be the fantasy that it is in reality, a fairytale of canals and breathtaking architecture. What can be more romantic than a gondola ride down a canal, or a walk over narrow bridges, getting lost through narrow lanes, and ending up at monumental squares? If you’re not yet in love, you will be.

Vienna

This city seems made for romantic walks, with monumental avenues circling around pedestrian streets...

Top love quotations to inspire

What is love? What makes it so incredibly beautiful, yet so devastatingly painful? Is love a mysterious, unquantifiable force, or the predictable, measurable effects of complex chemical interactions in our brain? Is there a “formula” for capturing love, or is it merely a role of the dice? Do we each have one true soulmate, or are we drawn to those we love through circumstance and chance?

Perhaps the most well-regarded definition of love is that true love as we know it involves 3 major elements – intimacy, passion, and commitment. Is this true? That’s ultimately up to you to decide.

Here are some inspirational love quotes that delve into the only way love can be truly experienced and by loving and being loved.

I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be n...

Things to do to live up your relationship

Many articles on spicing up a long-term marriage involve bullet-pointed guidance to be imported directly into a hard-working professional’s obscenely long, cloud-based to do list, with specific steps such as “now that the kids are older, have more fun together, take a dance class, adopt a new hobby, or travel more if you can afford it. No doubt, each might be helpful.

Let your partner help you.

I am a lifelong feminist. But that hasn’t stopped me from asking my husband from time to time over the years to offer his opinion, or help me to solve a problem, or let him feel needed in other ways. Quite frankly, there have been times when I’ve asked him to help me with something even when I could have handled it myself. But, I know it makes him feel good.
