When you first start a relationship, it can get shakier and more of a burden as you go on. You may even envy the couples around you who seem to have the relationship thing down pat. However, with just a few habits instilled into your routine, you can have that strength too.

We’ve compiled a few of the most common habits of strong relationships below. Here’s hoping you get a lot of benefit from these!

Every relationship is different, so don’t expect anything to change overnight. You may have to weed out some of the most effective habits for yourself and your partner. It would take time, patience, and a lot of effort.

When you get home from work or anything else, it’s nice to get a text asking if you arrived safely. The couple who is meant to stay together would adopt this habit on both sides. This checking up would only increase if one of the parties was unwell or particularly worried about something.

Checking up on the other person in a strong relationship does not mean keeping tabs on them. Your call or text should not be about finding out where they are, but how they are. It may be a minor difference, but it matters. Plus, the action itself is small but says volumes about how you feel about each other.

One great sign of a strong relationship is that the couple laughs together. Not only is a shared sense of humor great for emotional progress but also physically contributes towards fostering a sturdy bond.

Psychologists have long been of the opinion that laughing releases chemicals that make us happy. If we tend to laugh more often with our significant other, our brain is going to associate happiness with them. This is not at all a farfetched theory but has its roots in the beginnings of psychological experiments.

If you need something to get your laugh going when you two are together, feel free to put on a happy movie. For a quick fix, look up some funny YouTube videos. However, we do feel that the best way to laugh together is to want to make the other person laugh. You can try to spice up your daily anecdotes about work and try to find the humorous side of everything.

In a relationship, one needs to be careful about space. However, if you want to foster a strong bond, you need to let something out. There’s something about sharing your innermost thoughts, feelings, and memories that bind you to a person. Learning to let this all out and share it with them can make both of you feel closer.

Plus, the more you share about yourself, the more they would know you. That would enable them to know just who it is that they’re falling in love with. When that happens, the relationship would be much more honest and more loving.

A large part of sharing yourself with the other person involves being a good listener too. This is necessary for both parties in a relationship. When one person talks, the other should know when to listen in silence and when to offer support. This support may be verbal or simply in the form of a pat or hug.

When both partners know that they’re sharing in a safe place, they would be more likely to last forever. There should hence be no fear of taunts, ridicule, or anything that makes one person feel threatened by sharing.

6.


If one or both parties in a relationship are habitual liars, it’s probably not going to last. Lies, whether they’re whoppers or little white ones, are notorious for making every relationship shaky. One should be able to express not just what they did, but how they feel about something to the other person. Reality may be hard to digest, but it’s certainly better than finding out a falsehood.


Knowing that they would always tell the truth is a very comfortable feeling. Lies only lead to more and more deceit. This can wrap up the relationship in a soft cocoon for a bit, but would eventually suck out its life. When you trust that your partner would always be honest, you’re not too worried about anything. This sort of security is what makes for a strong and lasting relationship.

5.


There’s a lot to be said for a set routine, but spontaneity is what would make your bond magical. Strong couples are hence not afraid of taking risks and moving off the beaten path every now and then. For instance, you may enjoy a nice quiet dinner at home every weekend. However, there’s nothing wrong with scheduling date night in the middle of the week. As long as neither of you suffers because of it, a little change could keep things interesting.Spontaneity is also what leads to memorable adventures. Take a spontaneous vacation by just getting in the car and driving where you feel like it! The two of you could also be spontaneous in small doses. For instance, a few fresh flowers or a freshly baked cake for no reason could do wonders for your bond.

4.


When a couple notices the each other’s preferences, they know they’re going to stay together. It may not seem like much, but knowing just how she likes her coffee is probably a huge comfort to her. The same goes for when he finds his bed made every day just because that’s the one chore he hates.

When you know what the other person would like or dislike, a strong connection would help you focus on each other. Paying attention to the little things can often be so much more important than making grand shows on a few days.

3.


Ribbing, or teasing, is a healthy habit that many couples develop right from the start. However, one must make sure that the teasing does not devolve into sensitive territory. It’s all very well to bring them a little gag gift, but it should not be one that touches their weak spot.

If they’re trying to be healthier, one can get a fridge magnet saying ‘Exercise? I thought you said extra fries’. However, a shirt with an elephant on it is simply not encouraging or very funny to most people.

2.


We’re all human; we’re constantly changing and evolving. One of the habits of a strong couple is that they both accept and acknowledge this fact. They wouldn’t use ‘you’ve changed’ as an excuse to fight or break up. On the contrary, they would want to understand what causes the shift in their significant other. They may even love them all the more for being so evolved

For instance, one person in a couple could experience a great tragedy. As a result, he may feel very down and out, and even depressed. His partner should then know when to give him space and get him professional help if needed. She would not expect everything to remain the same after such an event. This is what would let them both know that their relationship is meant to last.
