What could be better than finding that right person to spend your life with? Falling in love and maintaining a healthy relationship is probably number one most people’s bucket list. Unfortunately, even the happiest of couples have their share of ups and downs. The major difference between couples who are able to weather the storm when times are rough and those who abandon ship comes down to a few simple rules. The main rule is to know how to transform your relationship when things are not perfect.

This is probably the golden rule in any relationship. Giving your partner respect and conducting yourself in a manner that earns respect can make or break even the happiest of relationships. Although it may be difficult when conflicts arise, showing respect during a disagreement will help resolve issues peacefully.
Everyone needs a little TLC from time to time. Be attentive to your partner’s needs, and try to put yourself in their shoes. Seeing things from their point of view sheds an entirely different light on a sticky situation.
