Keeping healthy, strong and happy relationship is not easy at all. That is because the most difficult thing is to first of all define whether you really have strong and happy relationship or not. To help you do that, we have made up a list of things that happy couples don’t do. Look through it and try to find out whether you and your woman are those lucky ones. In case, you aren’t, you will see what you have to work on.

Happy couples do not get things out in the open. Whatever happens must stay inside the family. And if you want to complain about each other to your friends or relatives, it is a sign that something is wrong with your relationship. Complaining to other people will never solve the problem. What you have to do is to sit and talk the things over to find the way out.

In happy relationship partners never criticize each other. Instead of arguing all the time, be honest with your partner and tell her what exactly is disturbing you. Happy couples never criticize each other and hide their feelings. There is a big difference between critics and honesty. Criticizing your partner you are thinking only of yourself, while expressing your feelings you help yourself and your partner to understand your relationship and help.

Happy partners never cast judgment. It is well-known that many relationships have broken down because one of the partners or both did not want to take the responsibility for some actions and blamed each other for something. People, who are in happy relationship, know that they take responsibility for every step they make and sometimes have to admit their mistakes.

Happy couples do not take life too seriously. Yes, that is true. However, it does not mean that they cross the limits or do not care about what is going on around them. People, who are sincerely happy together always look at the bright side in everything and try to enjoy their relationship whatever happens. If you start discussing the difficulties of life with your partner too often, try to smile more often too. This will definitely do you good.  

Happy partners never nag each other. Nagging each other about little failures is very easy; however it is not good for your relationship. If one of the partners is constantly dissatisfied with the other, this means that he/she is dissatisfied with the relationship on the whole. That is why, if you want to keep your relationship and make it happy, stop nagging your partner and try to inspire them and encourage instead.

Happy couples do not impose the feeling of guilt on each other. Many people do not know how to tell their partner about something they are disappointed with. Instead of being sincere, they try to impose the feeling of guilt on them, killing the chances to have happy relationship with them. And even the strongest relationship can be ruined by doing so.

Happy couples do not try to pretend to be someone else. They never compare themselves with other people and try to behave in an unnatural way. Happy couples enjoy being the ones who they are.  

Happy partners never lie to each other. It seems to be a universal truth, but we cannot help mentioning it. If you do not want to overburden your lady with your problems, it is OK. However, if you purposely lie to her hiding some important facts, or vice versa, it is a different thing. Lies destroy trust, which is the basis for strong and happy relationship.

The list of the things that happy couples don’t do could be much longer. However, we truly believe that if you and your better half will try to stick to the rules we have listed above, you will surely have happy relationship, which will last for many years.
