15 Things You Should Do To Make Your Relationship Stronger

How to make your relationship stronger

Is your relationship strong enough to withstand the test of time?

No matter how great your relationship was last year, you need to keep working hard to improve it and make it stronger this year and beyond.

I’m sure you wrote down your resolutions, career goals and business plans at the beginning of this year.

What about your relationship goals? Did you write any goals and have you been able to achieve them?

Don’t worry… It’s never too late to start!

I have compiled a list of things you can do to make your relationship stronger this year. 

How Can You Make Your Relationship Stronger?

15 simple tips to make your relationship stronger

1. Be committed:

You can make your relationship stronger this year by being committed to your partner and your relationship.

It is a new year full of hopes, aspirations, and goals. For married couples, this is the time to renew your vows and start your marriage all over again.

Go back to the first time you got married. How did you and your spouse feel? Excited right?

How do you feel now? The same? I don’t think so.

If you want to recapture those wonderful moments with your spouse, you need to be more committed.

Don’t take your relationship for granted; nurture it, invest in it and have faith in it.

2. Forgive easily:

Bearing grudges and refusing to forgive doesn’t help your relationship in any way.

It only creates a bridge between you and your partner. Learn to forgive easily and to let go of the pain.

When you forgive your spouse, you will realize how much peace and joy would enter your home.

Be forgiving and don’t bear grudges! This will make your relationship stronger.

3. Be romantic:

Couples who have been together for a long time tend to forget to be romantic on a regular basis.

It is not as if they don’t love each other; they’ve become too comfortable with each other to even bother about romance.

All the romantic things they used to do like walking hand in hand, making out in the rain, giving each other foot rubs all take the back seat when children join the picture.

Excuses have become the new romance! Is this your situation?

You both need to work hard to make your relationship stronger by reliving the good old times and doing all the mushy things you used to do to each other when you first met.

Kiss your spouse on the forehead for no reason. I know you’re exhausted half of the time but you need to try!

4. Communicate better:

I have this strong belief that excellent communication helps a relationship grow healthier and stronger.

When you communicate well with your partner, problems will be solved faster, issues will be tackled easily and challenges will seem trivial.

I’ve discovered that when I involve my partner in certain matters, they get solved faster than when I try to do it alone.

Try to indulge your partner in your affairs. If you have issues, don’t expect your partner to read your mind; discuss it with them.

When it comes to relationships most people are not mind-readers, so try to communicate your feelings openly.

Do you find it difficult coming up with thought-provoking conversation starters or topics to discuss with your partner?

Do you want to discover insightful questions that can lead to having deeper, exciting, and more meaningful conversations as a couple?

Don’t have much to talk about except the day-to-day life activities?

5. Be thoughtful:

Some couples don’t know that the little things matter most in an intimate relationship. I know you want to buy your partner the best gift you can afford.

Don’t just look at how expensive it is; look at how it will meet a specific need.

Pay attention to what your partner needs. If they complain about how difficult it is to manage their time, buy them a daily planner.

If you know they genuinely love a particular author, get them some of his works. That’s being thoughtful! Not everyone knows how to do that.

6. Do not cheat:

If you’ve decided to be more committed to your partner, the best way you can show this is by staying faithful to them.

Let your mantra this year be “I love my partner and I won’t cheat on them with someone else”.

Don’t look for small fights or excuses so you can run into another person’s arms.

Every relationship has issues. It is left for the couple to work hard as teammates to keep their relationship strong. Be faithful to your partner!

7. Be selfless:

Love is all about being selfless. When you choose to love someone, you choose to put them first in your life.

Their needs should always come first. It shouldn’t be all about you every time. Your partner’s needs should matter too.

When you prioritize your partner in your life, they’ll also hold you in high regard.

8. Spend more time together:

If you want to make your relationship stronger, you need to spend more time together.

Some couples feel that going out means spending time together while other couples see staying at home and cuddling in front of the TV or fireplace as spending quality time together.

You know how busy it gets once the holidays are over. Don’t let the crazy schedules stop you from going out with your sweetheart.

Plan your schedules well and make time to go out with your partner.

Look for nice spots to relax and talk about stuff other than work. Go on and have some fun!

Try to spend some time together alone without distractions. If you have kids, send them off to your mom’s and enjoy the freedom.

9. Be supportive:

You can also make your relationship stronger by supporting your spouse in any way you can.

If they need financial, emotional, or physical support, try to be there for them.

Be interested in their career and any activity they invest their time, energy, and money in.

10. Pray together:

My dad always says “A family who prays together, stays together”. Make time to pray together; it will make your relationship stronger.

Whether you’re married or single, cultivate the habit of praying and committing your relationship into God’s hands.

11. Always use your partner’s love language:

I’m guessing you know your partner’s love language by now. If you do, always use it and you will have fewer issues.

If you don’t know your spouse’s love language, find out about it so you can make them feel loved on a regular basis.

12.  Remain positive during hard times:

Always be positive. Whatever you do, remain positive. Don’t let the challenges in life weigh you down.

There is always a solution to a problem. Even when things don’t go according to plan, put a smile on your face and stay positive.

13. Be honest in everything you do:

Always say what you mean and mean what you say. Lies and infidelity can only hurt your relationship and make it fall apart.

Always be honest with your partner. Honesty brings trust, security, and openness into a relationship.

14. Remember to be patient:

Patience is key to everything. In your marriage, you need patience.

In your career, you need patience. Even in your business, patience is required.

Big things always start small! Don’t rush things and don’t be impatient with your spouse.

If you really want to make your relationship stronger this year, you have to exercise patience with your partner.

15. Give your partner some space:

There is absolutely nothing romantic about a clingy and insecure person.

If you’ve been hovering around your partner 24 hours a day, you need to stop.

It is not healthy neither is it romantic. Learn to give your partner some space this year. It will help your relationship grow even stronger.


My list looks straightforward and easy to carry out right? I think we all need to work hard to make our relationships stronger this year.
