Do not hold grudges: This can lead to bottling up of emotions which in turn can harm your relationship in the long run. Learn to let go!

Trust each other and give your partner the space and time to spend quality time with their close friends and family. Remember “ME” time is equally important as much as “WE” time!

Give each other some space: Couple’s time is great, but you and your partner must have your own friends and interests outside of the relationship.
