You might be in your present Relationship having this one wish for your relationship to be very strong, and the love you and your partner presently feel for each other not frizzling out ever.
Having and keeping a strong relationship with your partner is not a thing that comes so easily. It requires a lot of work, understanding, time, and patience to nurture it and feed it with the right essential intimate nutrients and vitamins. And hope to watch it grow and blossom into the amazing strong relationship you so desire.
Having a strong relationship with your partner is also not a task that can be achieved in a day. For most partners, it takes a very short time for you and your partner to click out rightly, and other times for you both to still work harder to make your relationship work and attain the level of strength you want your Relationship to be.
At the moment, your desire is for your Relationship to be all wonderful and all amazingly strong but you may seem not to know-how or the steps to take to attain such.
Below, are ways to assist you in making your amazing Relationship strong the way you want and desire it to be.
1. Always have genuine Communication
Most times, you’d hear most partners saying; my partner doesn’t talk to me anymore. He/she doesn’t open up to me like he/she used to. Well, you can not and would never have a romantic relationship that is so strong. If you do not strive to at least open up to your partner through genuine Communication!
Your partner is not a mind reader. Even if he/she was, they wouldn’t even want to tell you so you don’t freak out or see them as a freak.
Therefore, from time to time, endeavor to have open genuine Communication with your partner about your fears, doubts, and anything else you may need clarification on in Your Relationship.
This way, the more you and your partner open up about the things you like or want or detest about each other or the way the relationship is going. You both can make adjustments. And strive to make your Relationship amazingly strong each day.

2. Do not disrespect each other
Most times you might be so angry with your partner. And would want to keep an unnecessary grudge and act up or say hurtful words to your partner that is disrespectful and not cool. Stuff like this puts a strain on your relationship.
Therefore, you should endeavor to always keep your cool whenever you are angry. And talk to your partner calmly if he/she has anger issues or flares up easily when provoked.
This way, the both of you can at least, maintain your cool and not end up saying disrespectful things to each other either when your partner is present or absent.
What’s in and for the Relationship, stays within the relationship. And not otherwise! Always keep this at the back of your mind, as you and your partner embark on the journey and steps towards attaining a strong relationship.
3. Keep the fire burning
Yeah, most times the phrase “happily ever” seems impossible. Most especially, when you and your partner start seeing each other flaws and seeing each other true characters for who you both truly are.
You might most times want to back out of the in-love feelings and simply give up! But before you do, I need you to remember the one thing that attracted you to your partner in the first place.
That charm and charisma made you have sleepless nights almost all through. Figure out ways your partner shows you love makes you happy. Or ways he/she encourages you to be a better version of yourself, etc. Hold on to this and keep the fire you once had for each other burning.
That way, you have reasons not to give up on each other but to work on your flaws and into being a better version of yourselves. When you strive to do this, your relationship would grow stronger each day rather than otherwise.
4. Give each other genuine compliments.
You are your partner’s first cheerleader, motivator, and support before anyone else. If you do not strive to at least support your partner by encouraging him/her during their down, and high moments. How then would you make your partner feel loved and also feel appreciated?
Therefore, in order to maintain a strong relationship with your partner, endeavor to genuinely compliment him/her in terms of how they dress.
On how he/she cooks, and things your partner does in his/her little ways to make you feel loved and show you how much they want to choose you over and over again.
This is priceless! Hence do not take it for granted, by not genuinely, complimenting your partner.
5. Be genuinely honest as you can.
Being honest and straightforward is not a trait all humans possess. But one of the traits of a strong person is being honest. So be that honest person, and such partner to the one you love. Rather than otherwise!
Perhaps, in times past or in the present, you may have done and said things you ain’t proud about but don’t worry, if you feel and think your partner is mentally mature to know about the things you had done.
Why not open up and free yourself from the guilt of keeping it a secret until eternity? In order to have and maintain a strong relationship with your partner, either in the short or long run. It’s essential, to be honest about yourself and the things you stand for him/her.
That way when your partner, eventually finds out about the deeds you have done either in the past or at the moment. He/she won’t be surprised. But would only trust you more, and would also strive to open up to you about things about themselves as well.
6. Respect each other’s space
It’s a great thing to always want to be with your partner every now and then spending time with each other, talking for long hours, holding hands, watching TV, etc. But remember that saying which says; Too much of everything is bad? This also applies in a romantic relationship.
Hence, in order to have that amazing strong relationship you and your partner so desire. It’s very paramount to at least once in a while allow yourself and your partner to have your alone moments.

Endeavor to give each other space by being understanding when the other person needs his/her alone moments. Giving your partner some space once in a why would make him/her miss you more. And not get tired of you so easily.
By doing this, it would help your Relationship and love grow stronger and healthy.
7. Never bring old issues from your past relationships into the present ones.
Remember the saying in the Holy book that says, never put new wine in an old, torn wine bag? It only creates more holes and eventually spills the new wine out.
This can also be applied in your Relationship. How do you expect to have a strong relationship? When all you do every now and then is talk about the deeds be it good or bad from your previous or old Relationships?
Don’t you think you always mentioning any of your exes would make your partner feel terribly bad and inadequate?
Yeah, it’s a good thing at the early stage in your relationship, when you and your partner are getting to know yourselves to talk about your previous Relationship/s.
And afterward, you both move on! And talk about you, and how to move your present Relationship forward.
Therefore, you’re always talking about an ex of yours, which would not only make your partner feel you still have something for your ex. But would put a strain on your relationship.
Hence, keep your ex out of your present relationship with your partner. Remember, an ex is meant for the past. And not to mingle in the present expect it is important to talk about him/her with your partner and nothing more.
8. Do not be overly rigid.
Why go into a relationship and all you want to do is carry a long, moody face every now and then? Relax, feel free, be playful, and be fun around your partner.
When you’re around your partner, be that little boy or little girl you once were while growing up.
Laugh out loud, make fun of each other. Be dynamic and spontaneous in your Relationship. This way, your love and bond for each other become stronger and better, for you two would not want to have enough of each other’s company but would always look forward to having fun moments.
9. Endeavour to have loads of intimate moments.
Being intimate with your partner brings and binds your hearts together. And makes your hearts sing with the same sweet melody.
