Over the year’s chick flicks have gotten a bad wrap. Because of their mushy plot lines and cheesy anecdotes, it is believed that many men don’t like romantic comedies. But in recent years men have spoken out against this generalization of their gender. In fact, there are tons of guys who like to stay home with their significant other and enjoy a chick flick. And you know what their relationships are better for doing so. That’s right, a couple who watches sappy love movies together stays together.
Why is that? Let’s break it down for you. Research shows that when couples watch romantic comedies together during their first three years of marriage, they are more likely to stay together. According to the study conducted, a group of couples who watched five love films and discussed how these movies pertain to their own relationships outscored the group who had standard marriage counseling. Both groups did better than the partners who did not perform any of the tasks. In the end, researchers were shocked that the group who watched movies outlasted traditionally counseled couples.
So, if you and your boo are having some issues, why not make it a Netflix night and stream a romantic comedies and snuggle? Who knows it could be totally worth a shot, and way less expensive than seeing a relationship counselor.
You fix it
It seems like we live in a day and age where it is easy to just throw away things that don’t work and get something new. The problem with that is, when it pertains to a relationship, you can’t just throw someone away. And doing so does some serious damage the person who is perceived as disposable. This is how modern dating goes thanks to social media. Couples have fun, fall in love, and when it gets hard, they just quit and move on to someone else. If you ask an old couple how they’ve been together for so long, you’ll probably hear something like this, “if it’s broken, we’ve fixed it.” That means, they were actually working on the relationship. It’s not supposed to be easy, and when it is, someone is probably not being themselves.
Couples who work every day to fix or maintain their relationships prove that their love is built to last. What many people do not understand is that there is no perfect person. We are all humans and all deeply flawed. Getting of someone for their flaws and jumping to someone new doesn’t mean you fix the problem. It only means that you have found another human faulty person to live with. They can expect not to find lasting love until people learn to really work on their relationships.
How you sleep
You can tell you a lot about your relationship by sleeping with your significant other, yes, we mean actually resting. How you are both lying in bed and the quality of your sleep could have something to do with the strength of your love life. Listen up all you cuddlers out there, because this next sign of a lasting relationship pertains to you.
Apparently, couples who cuddle or sleep within one inch have amazing relationships throughout the night. This is because not only does snuggling with your partner lower stress levels; it also makes you both feel a deeper connection. And if you are new couples, don’t just stop getting your cuddle on as the relationship progresses. Studies indicate that people in relationships who snuggle throughout their relationship help maintain the spark alive. Doing so let’s your partner know how much you love them without saying a word. Not to mention the fact that there are actual health benefits. Cuddling improves your immune system and reduces your risk for heart disease. So, if you aren’t already a big cuddle monster, what’s holding you back? It could depend on your life and your relationship! But, just as important is how you sleep is, the amount of quality sleep you get matters too. Couples who are well rested are more positive about their relationships when they wake up the next day. So, make sure you have healthy sleeping habits and aren’t cutting back on your cuddle time if you want a lasting relationship.
There are several different aspects as to how you speak to your partner that matter. Can you talk about anything? Do you fear being judged? Is there a policy of open doors as far as communication is concerned? Do you have to worry about telling them bad news? We could go on, and on but do you see the point we are trying to make. Couples in their relationship who can speak freely tend to last a lifetime. That’s because couples who speak mean they have excellent communication. We are talking about small talk either; we are talking about couples who make life decisions together and discuss their feelings and fears. When there is an open-door policy to discuss anything and everything, it takes the fear of judgment out of the relationship.
How many people do you know have boyfriends or girlfriends they are scared of talking to you about certain things? How long do you actually think these relationships will last? The point is no matter what someone has to say they need a safe place to say it. And when it comes to a durable relationship, giving someone a safe place to be and telling their truths means you’re going to last a lifetime. This is one of the hardest parts of a relationship to find, so if you are someone who can speak freely with your partner consider yourself very lucky!
Equal Relationship Roles
Have you ever been in a relationship, and one of you always felt like chasing the other. There was a constant pulling push dynamic like someone was pulling the other towards them while the other pushes them away. This is common in many relationships, and it proves that there is a lack of quality in the relationship. In a relationship, someone with more power sets it up for failure. The best partnerships have equal roles; one isn’t better than the other.
Neither partner determines the outcome of the partnership, they make decisions together, and the dynamic flows easily. This comes from respecting each person’s partner as equal. Think of someone you don’t respect and how you could treat them if they were your other person. On the other hand, think of someone you could put on a pedestal and what in a relationship you could let them get away with? That’s why you have to make sure when you do decide to become a couple with someone; they should be someone on your level. And, if they aren’t, they should be on your level in your eyes at least. Giving someone too much power over you and almost guarantees your relationship is going to be doomed.
Talk each other up
Have you ever been out with one of your friends, and they start bad mouthing their significant other? What’s up with that? Isn’t the point of being in a relationship because you really admire who you are with? So, in what world is talking trash about them ok? We can almost guarantee that the relationship between your friends has not lasted. That’s because couples who talk about their partners positively are more likely to have lasting love. That being said, saying nice things isn’t enough, it’s how you talk about them that really counts. Sure, you can see you think your partner is attractive, or they are great kissers. But, when it comes to what they do, that is when your words are the most special.
Men and women who brag about their partner’s accomplishments, work, and hobbies are more likely to be happier couples. That’s because they are talking their significant other up to other people. This is also a sign that they are satisfied with their own lives. Those who tend to badmouth the people they care about are only showing their own weaknesses. They are probably not in a good place for a relationship, and they are most likely not happy with themselves.
If you and your boo are more likely to sing each other’s praises instead of failings, then congrats, you are probably in it for the long haul!
If you and your partner have fun together, there is a good chance that your love will last forever, this next sign of lasting love should be a no-brainer. It’s not really as simple as it may sound. Sure, it’s easy to have fun with someone in an amusement park.
But, if you and your partner can turn a boring night into a night full of fun, that’s a good sign you’re meant to be. That’s because your expectations of fun are growing older as a relationship. With your significant other, you become more comfortable and you can have a lot of fun doing anything together. That’s because you have lowered your expectations. If they are there then you can conquer the world. It also means that a big night out that doesn’t live up to its standards can still be a good time.
The moral of the story is, couples who can laugh through the most mundane situations proof they have a good Union they understand each other, and they are just happy to be around one another. And if you plan to spend the rest of your life with your partner, you could have fun with them, right? That being said, as well as with other couples, lasting couples also make time to have fun together. So never forget a weekly date night’s importance.
Ask for help
If you are in a relationship and you feel like you can’t ask your partner for help, you may want to reconsider the union. Many people have issues asking others for help. It may look like a sign of weakness, but that’s not actually the case. It’s hard to ask for help, and it takes a lot of bravery. Basically, what you are showing is that you have an issue and you don’t know how to solve it. This shows a vulnerability, and between weakness and vulnerability there is a big difference. It makes sense, therefore, that lasting couples can ask each other for help. You should be able to be vulnerable with your partner. But, did you know it shows them a sign of respect as well?
Think about people you have asked for help from in the past. Have you had enough respect for them to know that they had a solution? So, when you think highly of your partner you know they may be more equipped than you to solve your problem. Which means you respect their opinion as well as their skill set. And finally, asking for help from your partner shows you have confidence in them. And, we all know that Trust is one of a lasting and loving relationship’s most important qualities.
What a perfect segue to round out our list. You didn’t think we’d talk about lasting love without having to touch on how important Trust is, did you? Naturally, our final subject is confidence, because it is the cornerstone of every loving relationship. Just as we hinted at before, it’s extremely important that you have trust in your relationship. This is some makes or breaks even the happiest of marriages. And in a relationship, many forms of it are essential. Like, being able to openly communicate secrets with your partner without fear they will blabber the details to their friends. Or something small like being able to leave your cell phone unlocked on the coffee table without fear that they will snoop. This not only shows that you trust them, but that they also trust you enough to not invade your privacy.
When it comes to your partner and other people, trust is also important. Outside the relationship, you should be able to have friendships. But couples that don’t trust each other might become outside of the partnership controlling the relationships of their partner. And we all know how it works. Here’s an indication that it’s not.
