Couples, who have failed in their relationships often ask therapists about what mistakes did they make in their relationships. They feel frustrated because even after making their best efforts, they still were unable to make their relationships last. They also know that there are couples, despite making the same mistakes are still together. So, what is their formula to stay in love? How do they make their relationships work no matter what?
Here are four most remarkable qualities of couples who stay in love with each other against all the odds and have successful, long-lasting relationships:

1. They resolve their conflicts effectively.

In relationships, there will be conflicts and arguments. It’s inevitable. But, stay-in-love couples know that they’ll never fully agree with each other on everything. They also know that differences in opinions and views make the relationship more interesting and intriguing. But, those disputes need to be solved amicably as if these differences are left unaddressed it can create bigger problems in future and can ultimately destroy the relationship.

2. They don’t blame each other.

In most relationships when a conflict arises, many couples have a tendency to blame each other for all the problems in the relationship. They do this because they want to avoid guilt or feeling righteous, so they try to make the other partner into a bad person. This blame assigning is sad, and it doesn’t work in the long run. Each partner has his or her story to tell, be heard and understood. Stay-in-love couples realize that their spouse’s opinions must be honored and respected. They never get defensive, angry or withdraw, if anything their partner said contradicts their views.

3. They seek connection.

One important aspect of a happy and healthy relationship is the ability of both partners to truly agree, respect and honor one another’s feelings and thoughts. This is crucial when both parties are doing their best to work through various emotional issues their relationship or marriage is facing. Most couples do this at the beginning of their relationships, but as the relationship matures, they might feel burdened or annoyed by constant requests for connection by their spouses. Couples, who really love each other, will never ignore his or her spouse who wants to connect whatever the reasons or circumstances might be.

4. They respond to urgency.

Couples, who are newly in love, often made each other their top priorities. They respond immediately to each other’s distress calls. But, when the relationship matures, they become busy with their usual schedules, and unconsciously they notice that their significant others aren’t their priorities anymore. Stay-in-love couples are not only open, honest, authentic, and self-reliant, but they also respond to need one another quickly.
