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.
