You may know a couple who has been together for many years or even decades while you can't keep a relationship going for more than a few months. Have you ever wondered how they managed to stay together? While it may seem like they have a perfect relationship, there is a good chance that they have learned how to work as a team to solve any problems that may arise.

Good Couples Know How to Fight Fairly

A lot of mean things can be said in the heat of a fight. When you are feeling frustrated or simply have had a bad day, you may say things that you don't mean. Successful couples understand how to express their feelings in a rational way that doesn't put their partner on the defensive. This allows each person to explain how they feel about a situation and come to a mutually beneficial decision that helps each person both now and in the long run.

Long Lasting Couples Experiment Often

One of the drawbacks of being with one person for many months or years is that the romance can start to fade. Over time, you may gain weight, allocate more of your time for your kids or simply take the other person for granted. However, a successful couple will keep the flame alive by finding new and unusual things to try out in bed to make the relationship feel like it did when it first started. In a best case scenario, each person may discover something that they didn't know that he or she liked. At worst, you have gotten out of the usual routine for the night, which may be all that is needed to keep the romance alive.

Romantic Partners Turn into Good Friends

What may begin as a romantic coupling may soon evolve and grow into a wonderful friendship. As people get older, they don't look the same, act the same or even function the same as they did when they were in high school or college. However, the couples that last stay together because they have found their best friend and the person who they trust the most in the world. For most, that is worth more than the pleasure of a one-night stand even when they are longing for something fresh and new in their lives.

Successful Couples Know That Bad Days Will Happen

The most important trait that good couples have is their self-awareness. Each person knows that there will be good days and bad days over the course of their relationship. Instead of running away the first time a problem occurs, they simply wait for the other person to process their emotions and provide support if necessary. This understanding allows a couple to cope with these stressful times and weather the storm together.

If you know a couple who has been together for a long time, it is because they understand that relationships are about compromise and communication. As long as they can openly talk about their dreams, hopes and fears, they can reach a consensus on the important issues and push forward as one unit working together for as long as they live.
