There are a few factors that make a relationship successful, for instance, love, respect, fidelity, etc. but the following factors are also a staple in any relationship:
- It is very important to communicate a lot and often. Talking to your partner is one of the most important factors in a relationship.
- Never take your partner for granted, and make a point of it to tell your partner on a daily basis how much you love him/her and how much you care for him/her. Show appreciation and affection.
- Explore each other sexually. If you can be completely comfortable with your partner sexually, and you trust each other completely in a sexual context, it can do wonders to your relationship.
- Be sure to factor in alone time for only you and your partner, especially when you have kids.
