You can’t expect your relationships with your spouse or significant other to go really well if you are not trying hard to make them succeed when it is necessary. Granted some relationships are easier than others, but you can never become complacent and just do nothing. I try to do nice things like get Toronto party bus rentals to surprise my wife so she and her friends can go out at night. Sometimes I go along, too. But I want her to feel free to hang out with her friends and get away from the house at times. She knows how much she is appreciated by me.
I have a lot of friends who are interested in sitting on the couch in front of the TV or sleeping when they are home. They rarely get up to help their wives around the house. I know that their wives are stressed out and upset about it because my wife tells me. She is friends with most of the women, and they do talk a lot to try to burn off some stress. I am sure my wife gets upset with me at times because that is just human nature, but I try. My wife knows I try. She also tries for me, too.
I feel that I have a really strong marriage, and it is fully because of how hard we work at it. There is no need to forget about caring for your loved one and letting them know that you appreciate them. It is never a good to take advantage of someone that you love and want to spend your life with. That is the quickest way to a divorce, or a very long, unhappy marriage that can go on for decades. I love being a partner with someone and sharing.
