2. They resolve issues in person
Another habit of highly successful couples is that they resolves their issues in person rather than over the phone or by text.
Being face to face allows you to read your partner’s body language, which can give insight into why they’re saying what they’re saying.
It also encourages couples to hash out all of their issues all at once, rather than letting a conflict drag on for days.
The longer a conflict goes unresolved, the more likely it is that someone will wind up with their feelings hurt.
3. They learn their partner’s love language and take advantage of it
In the bestselling book The 5 Love Languages, author Gary Chapman claims that all people express and receive love in five unique ways.
The categories are words of affirmation, acts of service, receiving gifts, quality time, and physical touch.
If this book is to be believed- and it’s sold over 11 million copies, so there must be something useful in there- couples communicate best when they’re aware of their partner’s love language, and tailor their behavior accordingly.
If you know that acts of service make your partner happiest, think of ways that you can make their day a little easier.
If their love language is physical touch, schedule plenty of cuddle time every evening.
Even if you don’t read the book, get to know the things that make your partner feel loved, and strive to do them often.
