Being happy together in the short term is fairly simple. Staying happy over the long term is much more difficult. It takes a lot of work to build an incredible relationship, but the payoff is definitely worth it. Not only will you feel happier and more fulfilled, you and your partner can focus on one another and doing small things to help build a strong bond between you. While a romantic getaway is a lot of fun, it doesn’t do a lot for resolving issues or building a better bond. Here are some things you can do to help strengthen your relationship, starting today.

1. Don’t Tolerate; Accept

Having an incredible relationship is not about tolerating your partner and yourself; it is about accepting who they are, who you are and the circumstances in which you live. When you accept your partner, you’re not wishing they were different; you are loving them for exactly who they are. An incredible relationship means that you accept both your similarities and your differences, and respect each other for those things. If one or both of you change, don’t be afraid to talk about it.
