Remember Shah Rukh Khan’s quintessential quote from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai? “Hum ek baar jite hain, ek baar marte hain, shaadi bhi ek hi baar hoti hai, aur pyaar, pyaar bhi ek hi baar hota hai.” In real life though, that is easier said than done. But still, we all want to experience a love, a relationship, a companionship that lasts forever, don’t we? Here are 7 things that help in nurturing your relationship and make it last.




1. Trust one another


When you trust your partner, you give them the space to truly be themselves. When your partner knows how much you trust them, it gives them the confidence to always be honest.

2. Make an effort to spend time with each other


Sometimes we get so caught up in our mundane work lives, that we forget to do this one little thing. Avoid the natural tendency to become complacent. Be it through surprise dates or spending a night in watching your favourite movies, it is extremely important to keep the sparks flying.


3. Celebrate the little things


From anniversaries to starting new careers, to adopting a pet together, an effort made to celebrate the little victories in life with one another is what keeps a relationship going. P.S. Planning surprises (in bed) is a superb way to keep things exciting too!




4. Burn the so-called relationship rule book


We’ve all spoken to our girlfriends and watched a gazillion romantic comedies and read articles that state exactly how a relationship should be. If you want a relationship to last long, then the first thing you gotta do is to erase all these shoulds and should-nots from your mind and be open taking one day at a time. After all, every relationship is unique.

5. Forgive and forget


Holding on to grudges and taking arguments to heart is sure way to poison any relationship. Besides, it is extremely exhausting as well. So forgive and forget your partner. Spread love, not war.


6. Be team players of the same team


Compliment your partner. Appreciate him even on his little achievements and efforts. And encourage him to do and be his very best. By letting him know that you’re going to be there for him, no matter what, is bound to draw him closer to you in ways more than one.


7. Communicate effectively




Say what you feel, express yourself, share your deepest, darkest experiences with your sweetheart. The only way to be on the same page, to grow together and to create an impeccable understanding is to communicate.
