You know what's cool about your wedding videography team? As a married couple who has been together for over six years and happily married for three, we've had the pleasure of listening to countless love stories from our couples, as well as from their friends, parents, and relatives. And through these experiences, we've learned that some relationship advice is universal among long-term, committed couples. 

We want to share with you some of the most valuable and memorable pieces of advice we've received:

  • Communication is crucial: It's essential to be open and honest with your partner, and to communicate regularly about your thoughts, feelings, and concerns. This helps you stay connected and on the same page, and prevents misunderstandings and conflicts from escalating.
  • Practice forgiveness: Nobody is perfect, and conflicts and disagreements are bound to arise in any relationship. It's important to be willing to forgive your partner when they make mistakes or hurt your feelings, and to ask for forgiveness when you make mistakes too. Holding grudges can damage a relationship over time, so it's important to let go of negative feelings and move forward.
  • Show appreciation and affection: It's crucial to regularly show your partner love and affection, whether through physical touch, words of appreciation, or acts of kindness. This helps strengthen your bond and keep the romance alive.
  • Set aside quality time together: It's important to set aside time just for the two of you to connect and enjoy each other's company. This could be something as simple as going for a walk or having a date night, or something more elaborate like a weekend getaway.
  • Keep the spark alive: It's natural for the excitement and intensity of a new relationship to fade over time, but it's essential to make an effort to keep the spark alive in a long-term relationship. This could involve trying new things together, surprising each other with small gestures, or simply making an effort to keep the romance and intimacy alive.

By following these tips, you can help build a strong, healthy, and happy marriage with your partner. Remember, every relationship is different, and what works for one couple may not work for another. So, it's important to find what works best for you and your partner.
