Affection and Caring

One of the most important things that long term couples do is continue to care for and appreciate each other. Itīs very easy to start to take each other for granted - "Of course heīll pick me up, thatīs what heīs there for" or "Of course sheīll 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 youīve been together for a while. Give that kiss or huge, bring flowers, give a card, spend time together. Itīll help you both stay happy and content as the years roll by!
