Relationship tips to keep your marriage humming!
Tell your partner what you want rather than what you don’t want.
Instead of saying, “I don’t want you to go out with your friends every weekend,” try saying, “I would love for us to spend more quality time on the weekends.” Since this is a less critical approach, your partner will feel less defensive and more willing to accommodate your needs. The key is to focus on the present, rather than the past. Forget about what your partner didn’t do last week or last year, and concentrate on what you want from your partner in the present moment.
