Many people want to know how to stay together forever.
However, ask many older couples, and they will tell you there isn't a magic spell that ensures anyone stays together forever, it's the result of a lot of things and many circumstances.
Financial pressures and unfaithfullness can be leading causes of relationships ending.
Another reason people drift apart is that life can become 'boring' and the spark goes out of a relationship. It's a good idea to try and keep the relationship alive by telling your partner how much they mean to you and never taking each other for granted.
Keep interested in each other.
You don't have to agree on everything but toleration, inyerest and respect for each other go along way to help. It can help to have separate interests so that you always have something to talk about and cherish the time that you have together.
What else can I do to ensure we stay together forever?
Apart from a caring physical relationship - being friends is one thing that keeps people together, if you can be friends and lovers that's wonderful, as over time the physical part of the relationship might change, but if you are always friends, you should be able to get through these tough times.
Try to do things to keep the spark alive, treat each other to dinner, compliment each other where you can, buy small gifts that you think might show your other half that you still think about them throughout the day. Research shows that couples who regularly recount the early stages of their relationship and how they met are couples who have been together longer - so there should be something in that and helping to keep the magic alive.
Couples who have children find it difficult to give each other the same time and attention as they did when they were first dating, so many couples introduce a 'date night' where they have a designated night of the month to go to the movies, have dinner, talk over work and issues that they haven't had time to share the rest of the time. You could make use of this in any relationship to always have something to look forward to each week or month.
Here we have a saying 'Never go the sleep on an argument'. Always make your peace before a new day starts. Many older couples who have been together for years recommend that one and I'm sure that it does work.
