Act loving towards each other. People will always remember how you make them feel. Hold their hand as you watch TV, rub their feet after a long day. Do loving gestures, little things, to let the person know you care.
Tips for Engaged Couples or Newlyweds
Don’t be afraid to talk with one another, no matter how uncomfortable you think the topic is. Talk about it NOW, rather than thinking it’s going to work itself out. You can’t come to an agreement on things you are afraid to discuss.
If You Could Give Only One Piece of Advice…
Never let your relationship go into auto pilot. Always make an effort to be the person you were when you got married because that’s what attracted you to each other to begin with.
