It has been already proven time and time again that you need much more than love for a romantic relationship to work. So many marriages that were for love failed while others that didn’t start with it succeeded and prevailed. And the reason is the things couples do that make them closer and more attached with time, Such as:
1- They share hobbies. Maybe this seems silly and insignificant but it is the little things that make a difference. Couples who walk, dance, run, play videogames or watch movies together are closer than those who don’t share hobbies.
2- Make small gestures that show the other they are important. Things like writing “I love you” on the mirror before going to work, getting him or her the type of snack they like, or even just placing a heart shaped paper on the pillow – all these things will work like magic in making a relationship stronger.
3- They talk a lot. What they talk about doesn’t have to be important or meaningful, but it has to happen. Talking is a way of saying, “I am there for you”.
4- They establish traditions. Family traditions are called that because a certain couple started to do a certain thing at certain times, and as their relationship becomes stronger and their family becomes lerger, they kept on doing these things that brought them together more.
5- They go on dates. It may seem strange since they are together most of the time, but dates really bring couples together and take them back to the time they started to fall in love with each other.
6- They travel together. What is a better way to strengthen a relationship than sharing new experiences, seeing new places and enjoying new things?
