Also, communication does not mean you should avoid having conflict, but that you should ensure that you keep the communications lines open.

5Don’t go to bed angry

Among the many mistakes, couples make in a relationship is going to bed angry. It is okay to sleep on an argument, but it is not okay to go to bed angry. Arguing at midnight or the wee hours of the morning is not the time to argue and the bedroom is not the place. Also, avoid arguing when both of you are tired. Instead, set aside time the next day to talk about the issue at hand. So, sleep on it and the next day things will be more clear.

To sum up, the above are some tips that will help your relationship to stay healthy. However, there is more than you can try like switching up roles once in a while with your partner. Going on vacations or trips together is always a plus to increase the bond between the two of you. Also, other things like being tolerant of the physical change in your partner. For instance, after they have had a baby, they lost weight due to sickness or even as they age. All these considerations are important to ensure that your relationship remains healthy and happy as well.
