Want relationship goals you want to achieve? Here’s what you need to know – 8 things happy couples do on a regular basis.




Let’s chat about relationship goals.

Would you like to have a stronger, happier relationship?

Let me guess? The answer is YES.

This is no surprise as really we are all searching for ways to be happier, especially in our relationships.


Now here’s the thing: Happiness in a relationship is the result of several small things done on a daily basis.


These small tasks are within your capabilities.

A little time and attention can grow your relationship into a great source of happiness for both of you.


You can strengthen your relationship each day by following these strategies of happy couples:






TIP # 1 – Confront each other effectively.


No relationship is free from disagreements.

The most important issue is how those disagreements are handled.

Handle your disagreements quickly and fairly.

Address behaviors and forget about personal insults.



Seek to find a resolution rather than proving who is right or wrong. We are all allowed to have our own opinions remember. We are all entitled to have our own thoughts. This is something we can’t control in others.



TIP # 2 – Have compatible goals.


Is your dream to travel the world, never staying in one place for more than a few months?

Is your partner’s dream to have five kids and live in her hometown, having dinner with her parents every night? If so, one of you is going to be miserable.


  • Your goals don’t have to match precisely, but they must be compatible. Otherwise, one of you will have to sacrifice too much to make the other happy.





TIP # 3 – Forgive easily.


Holding a grudge breeds contempt and upsets the other person.

Everyone makes mistakes and everyone has a bad day once in a while.

Forgive quickly and easily.



Remember forgiveness doesn’t excuse their behavior.


Forgiveness prevents their behavior from destroying your heart.

Sometimes we forgive not because we are wrong but because staying angry robs us of happiness.

Forgiveness is a process.

A choice you have to make over and over, every day, until you are free of hurt.

Forgiveness isn’t approving of what happened. It is choosing to rise above it.






Forgive others, no because they deserve forgiveness but because you deserve peace. Jonathan Lockwood Huie


The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. Mahatma Gandhi


A happy marriage is the union of two good forgivers. Robert Quillen


Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies. Nelson Mandela






TIP # 4 – Grow together and separately.


Try new things together.

See new places.

But also make the time to grow independently.

You can learn to paint or golf while he learns how to surf or write.

Do some new things together and others apart.



TIP # 5 – Empathize.


When you’re taking on the world by yourself, you can afford to be a little more single-minded and selfish in your approach.

But all that changes when you become part of a committed relationship.


When you’re part of a couple, it’s important to consider your partner’s feelings and point of view.






TIP # 6 – Make time for each other.


It’s so easy to split your time and attention between work, household duties, and the minutiae of life.

Ensure that you spend quality time with your partner each day.

If you don’t make time, it’s too easy to suffer from a lack of time.


Make this a priority in your life.



TIP # 7 – Focus more on your partner’s good qualities than their bad.


Does your spouse always leave the toilet seat up?

Does it make you furious?

What if someone told you they knew for a fact that a particular man was perfect for you, but he had one annoying habit: he left the toilet seat up?

Would you say, “Forget it?”

Of course not.




None of us are perfect and we all have flaws – we are all perfectly imperfect! You need to understand this.


  • It’s easy to focus on a few negative traits and form strong negative emotions.
  • Spend your time focusing on your partner’s positive qualities and notice how your perception of them changes. It all comes down to where you choose to focus your thoughts and YOU my friend are in control of your thoughts.



TIP # 8 – Listen to each other.


It’s not easy to listen to a 10-minute story about buying a pair of shoes or the details of the Cowboys’ final drive for a winning touchdown.

But it’s necessary to show interest and give your attention to someone you love.


Be INTERESTED in what your partner has to say when he or she is opening up to you.


Listening is a way of staying connected with your partner.

  • Once you stop listening, the other person stops communicating. The relationship is usually on a downhill slide after that. Listening is a skill that anyone can master. Give your partner your full attention.


All in all, your relationship can be a great source of happiness or grief.





The cool thing is that your partner and you CAN create a relationship that brings happiness to your lives.


Make time for each other and be willing to listen.

Find common interests that you can explore together.


Remember to also make time for yourself.


Do these things and you’ll build on your relationship each day.

This will definitely make for a stronger, healthier and happier relationship in the end.
