HAVE EACH OTHER’S BACK

As much as each part­ner needs to have their own life, cou­ples also need to know how to work to­gether as a team, Robert says.

Be­ing sup­port­ive of each other every day – by watch­ing the kids so your part­ner can go for a run, for ex­am­ple – is im­por­tant for main­tain­ing a healthy part­ner­ship, Ta­mara says. “But sup­port isn’t only about prac­ti­cal things, it’s also about the emo­tional stuff.”

If, for ex­am­ple, your part­ner is go­ing through a tough time at work and there isn’t re­ally any­thing you can do to help, just be­ing there for them emo­tion­ally – al­low­ing them to vent or tak­ing their mind off it, if that’s what’s needed – will do won­ders.
