“Love like kids, act like adults.” That phrase says it all and it's what every marriage or relationship needs. Of course, you also need to actually like the person and have a strong friendship as well as some good sex. It's not always easy to find, but once you do, you have to work to make it work.
Sometimes that work is just remembering what it was like when you were dating, and be that way as well. Jamillah and David Lamb know some secrets -- they wrote a book called Perfect Combination: Seven Key Ingredients to Happily Living & Loving Together. And they are sharing some of those marriage secrets with us.
They also share that we have to remember sacrifice, and that love is worth the sacrifices. We have to appreciate our partner, never take each other for granted, and never forget the simple gestures to make sure the other one feels appreciated and loved. So share the laundry responsibilities, love when the lawn gets mowed, send each other sexy text messages throughout the day, and don't forget to have make-out sessions. Sounds hot, doesn't it? Oh yes!
It may seem simple when reading it here, but it's these simple things that people forget and, over time, makes a relationship fail.
Do you practice these 5 secrets in your relationship? What other secrets to making love last do you know?
