10 Pieces Of Advice From Couples Who Survived Rough Times In Their Relationship

When you finally believe you have fallen in love, and decide to spend your entire life with someone, you should also keep in mind the difficulties that come with living together with your beloved one. I mean, when you live together, you find out a lot more about your partner. There are certain routines, certain quirks you get to see that you have never been exposed to before. You most likely have but not constantly. Many couples tend to ask for advice before taking further steps in the relationship, there are those who believe they can handle anything that comes their way, but no one denies the fact that aside from love and affection there are also slight difficulties couples need to learn how to manage.

Love is not a walk in the park… or is it? I guess it depends on your perception of ‘walk in the park‘.

There are a few rules that people believe have helped them in their relationships, let’s look at some:

1. Put yourself first.

Sometimes a healthy amount of egoism is a good thing. There are cases when “we went there,” “we are watching this now,” are heard, and especially, “we think.” Be an individual first, then you can function in a relationship.
