They say that the good should be imitated, which is why we have compiled some of the most common habits that happy couples make all the time and how we can learn from their achievements.

Spending time together is what happy couples do

Although today it is difficult to take time to be alone with the couple, happy couples tend to take advantage of it very well ; work, children and other worries create a distance between the couple, which although it is seen every day, they never spend time together alone.

Take some time to have intimacy and communication with your partner alone, a trip or a weekend getaway can give strength and vitality to the couple and enhance the bond.

Know your partner’s language

Also known as the ” language of love “, it is that body language, gestural and sometimes spoken, that only the couple understands. Body language often symbolizes the complicity created with your partner, understanding and knowing it is essential to have moments of great depth and significance for both members of the couple. This is another one of the secrets of happy couples and that they do it all the time.

Two 20-second hugs a day

Although it sounds corny, hugs in happy couples are very helpful , in addition to being a beautiful token of love, hugs help to strengthen the relationship. Why 20 seconds ?; time is more important than you think, 20 seconds is the time it takes the body to release oxytocin , known as the ” love hormone .”

Two hugs a day are recommended, but this number is merely symbolic since the most important thing is to improvise love, and with time you will see that they will enjoy their hugs more and more.

Learn to listen

Sometimes knowing how to listen is more important than saying “I love you”, no matter what your partner talks about, if it is how his work went during the day or if he wants to talk about his feelings. But it is not only about listening, there must be a connection, direct eye contact and a lot of attention when it is done, even the movements count at this moment and this should not be forced, you must first evaluate if you really care about the person with whom you live together, if this is not the case, you should not force things.

Be aware of each other

This point may be closely related to the previous one, but it is sometimes necessary to give the other person space while still being aware of what their feelings are or how they are. It is no secret that communication is important in a relationship , and it should be part of the union and harmony .

Planning a future together

You probably have planned to spend the rest of your life with your partner, but in this case it is about planning the future together , and not just the distant future. Make a calendar together, set the date they will go to see friends, go shopping, or mark on the calendar when they will travel. It is about doing it as a couple, prioritizing and giving value to each future event as happy couples do .

Provide security for your partner

Peace of mind is something that everyone looks for, and what better to achieve it in a relationship with a couple and that it is our own partner who provides it to us. Feeling safe in a relationship involves many aspects, such as loyalty , respect and support, if these points are not manifesting in your relationship, you should see what you can modify in order to have a more secure relationship .

Always treat yourself with respect

The treatment of a couple is often the key to its durability. Talking and treating each other with respect and love makes the relationship more bearable. It may be that many times you do not feel love at that moment to share it, or you are not willing to put aside your privacy at that moment but you should always respect your partner and avoid the damage that insults, reproaches and disrespect can cause. You should treat your partner as you want her to treat you and this is one of the principles of all happy couples .
