LOVE

If you think your romantic relationship is on the rocks,
don't worry, for an expert has offered tips to keep it alive and happy.
"Keeping the love in a relationship is about understanding who the other partner is and working extremely hard to keep the lines of communication open.


A relationship is doomed if the communication is not there. "Very often it's the little things, the daily hassles and decisions that couples need to make that lead to bigger problems; learning to make decisions together is critical for the survival of your relationship,"


Here are the five things recommended for making decisions together:


1. Set a specific goal


2. Monitor your discussion


3. Arrange the situation for success


4. Recruit support from one another


5. Treat yourselves




"Celebrate the success of a decision together.


A hug,


a celebratory reward,


anything that acknowledges that together you have accomplished this task will help keep you motivated to make decisions together again."
