Affection and Caring

One of the most important things that long term couples do is continue to care for and appreciate each other. It´s very easy to start to take each other for granted - "Of course he´ll pick me up, that´s what he´s there for" or "Of course she´ll make me dinner, she does so every night." People who feel taken advantage of become unhappy pretty quickly.

Keep showing your partner how much he/she means to you, even though you´ve been together for a while. Give that kiss or huge, bring flowers, give a card, spend time together. It´ll help you both stay happy and content as the years roll by!
