Spending all that time together with your partner may lead to tensions. Set some healthy boundaries:
Start saying sorry more often
Learn to forgive
Encourage healthy discussions instead of fights
Stop sweating the small things
Don’t jump to conclusions
Make criticism constructive
Spend some time with your family
Don’t nag people, preach or give them unwanted lessons
Never make rash decisions or start conversations when you are feeling angry or moody
Stay-in-love couples are authentic, open, and self-reliant, but they also urgently need one another at times. They trust each other won’t take advantage of their availability but know that when urgency calls, their partner will rapidly respond. Their mutual goals are to resolve and to reconnect, leaving distress behind as soon as possible.
