Tips for lasting commitment

Tips for lasting commitment

What are the secrets of a rock-solid relationship?

There’s no magic formula that works for everyone, unfortunately, but most lasting relationships work according to some basic rules:  

   -  Don’t live together too soon – enjoy living alone first and you’ll enjoy living as a couple much more later on. You need to be able to say “I love being with you, but that doesn’t mean I’m not happy when you’re not there.”

    - You need to complement each other. OK, opposites attract, but they don’t live together! There are too many sources of conflict. In the long term, it’s best to have things in common and to like doing the same things. Birds of a feather flock together – it’s somewhat old-fashioned, but very true.

    - Accept the differences between men and women. If we only learned to reognise the fundamental differences between men and women there’d be far fewer dometic arguments!
