Many relationships like marriages, friendships, and others, can be sustained onwith a happy note if some of these secret rules are followed. A relationship is completely subjective and no clear cut rules can be executed on it, yet following certain guidelines may help attaining happiness in a relationship.
Many of these, so called, rules are based on the life experience of many happy couples and also the observation of people. When two people get into relationships, many of them wish for lasting relationships, but sadly, a good number of them go apart after a while, in search of new partners. Let us see the secrets that constitute long lasting relationships or ever remaining relationships.
1. Breakup is never the Solution.
When asked about the best possible way of resolving the issues in relationships, many people may comment that breakup is the best possible method of putting an end to all the troubles in a relationship. The excuse is as always ‘irresolvable differences’. It is the biggest mistake people commit.
Breakup is never an option but it’s the utmost decision to be taken in life only at an inevitable situation. Do not even think about a breakup whenever you are confronted with minor issues in relationships. Issues should be seen as by-products of the happiness experienced in the relationship.
2. No Perfect Relationships, but Perfect Situations.
No one can be considered in a perfect relationship. There is no fairy tale happy ever after in a relationship. Happiness is an abstract situation created by the partners involved in a commitment. No relationship, as a whole, is destined to be jovial and satisfying. There can be moments of happiness and moments of struggles. The couple that learns the secrets of balancing both happiness and struggles wins and enjoys the best possible relationship.

3. Never be Afraid of Expressing Yourself
Communication is key in relationships and even partnership. Another secret of happy relationship lies in being open and frank with your partner. Do not feel afraid to express your mind to your partner and never ever make him/her afraid to tell you their mind. When people communicate with each other many of the issues can be melted down. An issue, how ignorable it is, when kept in mind for several days, can take forms of anger, frustration, dislike etc., and get expressed in the most undesirable manners. Let the communication between you and your partner be a frequent element and no one should hold the words when he/she really wants to talk.

4. Always be Pillars to Each Other
Never ever leave your partner unsupported. Whatever be the opinions and ideas, just know that you are the only one he/she can lean on for support. When both of you are alone, you can argue among yourselves on points you disagree on, but in public both of you have only one mind. Holding the hands, especially when he/she is sad or broken, is helpful to convey you care for the person. Never let an outside block intervene.

5. Love Defined is mutual Respect and Care
You can just tell that you love your partner but can never express the love as it is. Love comes as a package; respect, care, share, dedication, forgiveness etc., express the emotions whenever possible to make the other person feel the intensity of your love. Do not be a miser in loving your partner and let your love be unconditional. It is rightly said that love is defined as respect and care. When your partner feels that you do not care for him/her or do not give him/her the due respect, the person may think of an alternative to you. Be warned!
