The challenge is mainly brought by lack of rules in their marriage that can be used as guidance.

Here are some of the rules that every couple should consider using to make their relationship strong.

1. Find a babysitter and plan date nights for just the two of you at least once in 2 weeks

Don’t let marriage and kids be the reason as to why you can no longer go to dates and have some time spent together and alone away from the family.

One can always find a babysitter and use that time to go out with their spouse.

2. If you feel nostalgic or regret your decision to move, share it with your spouse

This is something that most partners allow themselves to suffer deep within because they are afraid of sharing it with their partners.

However, if it happens that you don’t want to move be open with you and share your view about it.

3. Revisit and renegotiate your roles in the family

Couples often to forget their roles in a family which makes it hard for one partner to accomplish all the roles.

To avoid such situations, it is important for couples to always remind each other of their roles in a family.

4. Socialize with other couples and families

No matter the level of life on is into, it is important to always learn a few things from others.

Hence, it is important for a couple to choose another experienced couple whom they both like and learn from them on how to handle some issues in the relationship.

5. Share openly on a weekly basis what problems bother or upset each of you

It doesn’t matter the basis of the problem, be it a personal issue or relationship issue, openly share it with your partner and find a way for the solution together.
