10 Habits of Happy Couples

In this article Dr. Mark Goulston explains to us 10 steps to make a more loving, stronger,

and stronger relationship. The first one is go to bed at the same time happy couples resist the

temptation to go to bed at different times. The second is Cultivate common interests if common

interests are not present happy couples develop them at the same time. The third Walk hand in

hand or side by side happy couples walk comfortably hand in hand or side by side they know it’s

more important to be with their partner than to see the sights along the. The forth Make trust and

forgiveness your default mode happy couples default to trusting and forgiving rather than

distrusting and begrudging. The fifth is Focus more on what your partner does right than what he

or she does wrong it all depends on what you want to look for happy couples accentuate the

positive. The Hug each other as soon as you see each other after work Couples who say hello

with a hug keep their skin bathed in the “good touch,” the seventh say “I love you” and “Have a

good day” every morning this is a great way to buy some patience and tolerance. The eighth Say

“Good night” every night, regardless of how you feel. The ninth do a “weather” check during the

day call your partner at home or at work to see how his or her day is going. This is a great way to

adjust expectations so that you’re more in sync when you connect after work. The tenth is Be

proud to be seen with your partner Happy couples are pleased to be seen together and are often

in some kind of affectionate contact

I feel that this article has some great ideas and is supported with strong facts. I believe if

all couples practiced these ten steps the divorce rate in America would drop greatly. In

conclusion this article help teach me that relationship takes two people who love each other very

much and are willing to work hard to be with each other and with, and that is the only way two

people can be happy together.
