A relationship, just like everything else in life, needs care and attention. Many couples overlook the most important details and end up unhappy, thinking that they relationship was doomed from the beginning.

However, there are some things that we allow to get in the way of our significant other, which can affect the love life. If we can identify these things early we might be able to save our selves the headache of a breakup. Here are 5 details you must focus on to preserve your relationships.

1. Communication

Never assume! The first and foremost way to have a successful relationship is to talk to each other. You need to learn to understand each other to increase the closeness and the trust between you two.

For example, most couples prefer to just end an argument with slammed doors and silent evenings, rather than face the situation and clear the air.

Problems that are brushed under the carpet create unnecessary buildup of negative emotion when left unresolved.

If you have an issue with your significant other, talk about it with your partner and try to get over the issue.

2. Love Language

Have you read the book “The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts” by Gary D. Chapman? Well, I believe this is a must-read for all couples in general.

Not only will you learn how to communicate with your significant other, but you will learn the way that your significant other wants to be loved.

Whether it is telling her how you feel about her, purchasing gifts to show appreciation, or just keeping the house clean, you will be able to express the love that your significant other wants and needs.

3. Physical Appearance

Some of you may think, “My woman loves me the way that I am,” or “It doesn’t matter if I go a midget or a mile, my man will love me always!” That should absolutely be true; however, it’s not about weight, but about how you carry yourself.

If you look like a slob all the time and seem like you don’t groom yourself like you did when you were dating, your man will start look at other women.

Sorry ladies, but it’s true! Take care of yourself again and watch your significant other only have eyes for you. Oh and guys this goes for your too, we might be married but we aren’t blind!

4. Technology

Seriously! This is a big one. Your cell phone, Ipad, computer, smartphone, and even cd player can get in the way of a successful relationship.

When your girlfriend or boyfriend is trying to talk to you, but all you are doing is staring at your phone and nodding your head how do you think that makes them feel?

Spending too much time with your gadgets can be extremely detrimental to your love life. It is distracting and can really drive you two apart. Learn to turn the phone off and spend more time with each other.

5. Children

I’m sure we all love our bundles of joy…but children change everything. If you don’t learn how to balance children and your relationship, it can have a negative impact on being a happy couple.

When children come, there is lack of sleep, change in focus, difference of opinions, and less care for yourself.

It may take some time to get a balance going for the children and your significant other but do not give up trying. The rule of thumb is God first, your relationship second and children third.

If you know you two really love each other, then you can absolutely fall back in love with these tips. Pinpoint the issue and whip that love life back into shape!
