Relationships such as marriages, live-ins, romance or any other kind of love relationship can be sustained with a happy note to them if you follow some of the secret rules. A relationship is completely subjective and there are no clear cut rules that can be executed on it and yet, when you follow certain guidelines, it may help you make your relationship a happy one. Here is how.
Breakup is not the solution
Many people will tell you that a breakup is the best possible way to solve the problems that crop up in a love relationship. It is actually the biggest mistake one could ever commit. The reason for increased divorce rates around the world can be attributed to the mentality of people, who think of separation as the only solution to all problems even before actually getting into a relationship. Divorce and separation are never an option, but people think of it as the optimum solution to every problem in a relationship. Do not even think of separation or divorce since these are simply the by-products of the happiness you experience in a relationship. Only in situations, where it is inevitable should a divorce be the solution.
Never be afraid
Another secret to a happy relationship is that you should be open and frank with your partner. Do not be afraid to express your views to your partner and never make him or her scared to tell you his or her mind to you. When people communicate with each other, they are going to find issues melting down. An issue, when kept in mind for a few days, can result in anger, hatred, frustration, dislike, etc. and they can get expressed in the most undesirable manner. Let the communications between you and your partner open up and no one should hold the words that he or she wishes to express.
Always support each other
Never ever make your partner feel unsupported by you. No matter what your ideas and opinions are, know that you are the only one that he or she can lean on for some support. When the two of you feel unsupported by each other, it would only result in an argument. However, in public, both of you would have only one option, which is holding hands and comforting one another. Once the two of you have decided to live together, then there should be no questions regarding why you wish to stay together.
