Let’s celebrate our personal triumphs!
The best thing my Fiance and I do is we are very honest with eachother. If I ask whether I’m fat in this dress, he will tell me. Of course he won’t say, “YOU FAT!,” it’ll be more like, “if you feel fat and want to workout you should, but that dress isn’t good for you right now.” Same thing with my attitude and me being clingy/pushy/b*tchy in general. I love it and it keeps me in check. Even more, when he does praise me I know he really means it and isn’t just trying to shut me up.
So what do you do that makes a huge difference in your relationship?

We show each other that we are the most important person to each other and we act as a team. When we are out in public, we are careful to make sure that anything we say to each other reflects that, and that we don’t make jokes at the other’s expense, things like that. We also greet each other at the door when the other one comes home from work, and we make sure that if we’re talking on the phone when the other comes home from work, we get off the phone and show each other that nurturing our marriage is more important than whatever else is going on. We are constantly learning and reading how to strengthen and nourish our marriage, and we have developed a system of communication that is still growing.

Actions speak louder then words for the both of us.

We’re living 4 hours apart and make it a priority to visit each other- the drive sucks when we have a normal-length weekend, but we both acknowledge that it’s worth it.

I’ve finally started letting myself ask him for help. Letting him drive me place, help me run errands, etc… I was always either too proud, or I thought I was putting too much on him. But I’ve realized that it makes him feel good to help me, and if it isn’t too difficult, I don’t need to feel guilty.
It’s still hard to be so blunt, but I’ve never been very open with my emotions. Baby steps!

My guy and I both have the type of personality where we overthink everything and we get stressed out easily. It comes in handy though, because when one of us gets upset the other is usually able to talk them down pretty quickly. And we do our best to respect the other person’s dreams and ambitions. There’s nothing worse than to be told something you really want is stupid or completely unattainable.

we are teammates…I think a lot of couples who have been together for a while will forget that they are on the same team!

I have no idea! Might have something to do with accepting each other for the way they are, and also compromising on things, but my relationship just works somehow 😛
