Remember to keep doing the fun things you did together when you first fell in love.

Make a rule: Only one crazy person in the house at a time. If your partner is freaking out, you must stay cool and collected.

Go on a date every week.

Treat each other with respect. Learn to love each other’s quirks.

Don’t worry about who is right. The goal is to move forward -- not to stay stuck in an argument. It is more important to have a mutually satisfying relationship than it is to be right all of the time.
