Many people say that the best relationships are rooted in friendship.  And everyone says strong relationships are the ones both parties work at to keep them strong and healthy. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that just because you and your partner argue on occasion that your relationship is not strong.  Every couple needs to argue now and then. Just to prove that the relationship is strong enough to survive.

Long-term relationships, the ones that matter, are all about weathering the peaks and the valleys. Luckily, there are plenty of things that can help strengthen a relationship and keep the feeling of love steady and strong. Remember, the little things also matter when you are trying to build a relationship and keep it strong.

  1. Check Up On Each Other

When you both make it a habit to check in on one another, it can really help strengthen the feeling of love between you. Couples who call one another after a long day at work to see how they’re feeling, or send a text to make sure that they made it home okay after a long journey, will have a better connection and feel taken care of by one another. It’s such a small thing, but it can really make a world of difference.

  1. Laughing Together

A couple who can share a sense of humor and laugh together will form all kinds of emotional bonds that can help keep the relationship running strong. Psychologist Doris Bazzini, Ph.D. says, “Laughter reminiscence packs an additional punch because people relive the moment by laughing again.” Whether you decide to sit down with a funny movie, or just an evening of watching funny YouTube videos, laughing together is important. Once a couple laughs together, their brains will be wired to associate each other with happiness and laughter.
