6 Habits of Happy Couples
6 Habits of Happy Couples
11/14/2017

It’s the little things that occupy the biggest part of your and your spouse’s hearts. Here are 6 small habits that will make you happier as a couple:

  1. Go to bed at the same time. There is something about being together under the covers (cuddling, talking about your day, etc.) that’s very bonding.

  2. Share some hobbies together. You can keep your own separate interests, but you also need to have some common ones together.

  3. Walk hand in hand. Couples who reach out for each other don’t let go.

  4. Cut each other some slack. You are both going to say and do dumb stuff, but you need to trust and forgive. Focus on what your spouse does right, not just what he/she does wrong.

  5. For each complaint, give 5 compliments. When you do that, suddenly your complaint doesn’t seem so bad.

  6. Connect throughout the day. Say, “I love you,” and, “I miss you.” Send little texts. Show your spouse that you are thinking of him/her.
