Habits that should never be allowed to die in couples

28 June 2016, 07:46 Anne Mutinda

No matter how many years you have been married, there are particular habits that should never be allowed to die in couples. These include:

1) Open communication. Talking to each other every time. Be free to talk about those things he does that make you want to pull his hair. Don't bottle issues and only talk when she accuses you of offending her. You are wife and husband. You cannot afford to live like strangers in the same house. She will always be the first person to be asked about your whereabouts when you disappear. So, never let open communication fade away. It keeps the marriage alive.

2) Doing something kind to each other. It feels great when your partner does something kind to you every time, every day without expecting anything in return. You share a bed together, do things that you cannot do with anybody else and share some strange secrets, so why not make him happy with little surprises here and there? If he forgets to pick his suit from a dry cleaner, pick it for him. If she is tired and cannot iron her dress for tomorrow's function, do it for her. It is the kind things that remind partners of their love for each other.

3) Flirting with each other. Ever seen elderly couples whispering things into each other's ears and burst into an aphrodisiac laughter? Yes, that one! Ageing should not stop you from expressing sexual attraction in a playful manner. Neither should the number of years you have lived together or the presence of children. You can squeeze her butt while in the kitchen, play with his fingers when he is yawning or send flirty texts during the day. If you fail to flirt with her, someone else will do it for you. And you will have yourself to blame.

4) Cracking jokes. Don't let the hustles and bustles of life take away that comic charm in your marriage. Laugh away together the mistakes you both made during the day. Create jokes that make each other laugh. There is no other place you will find the special attention to tell your funny jokes other than your home where your wife laughs to the core and your husband cannot take it anymore because the ribs have had enough of tickling. Jokes are a form of stress reliever and keep a home warm. You need a brain cleanser to face another day.
