Hello everyone and welcome to a new blog post for this week. This probably will be my last post for this month. And we are off to the next one. I want to share an important topic and it is in the relationships category. I’ve mentioned a few posts so far and today will be added to the list. So, today will be about how to achieve a lifestyle of a happy couple.
You might think it’s impossible. Maybe something can be achieved but it’s difficult. Well, this post will explain everything and how can you make it easy. What you need to do to achieve that. Everything you need to know to be happy in your relationship and have a good lifestyle.

Being a couple means that you are married. A level of relationship when you are committed to being with a person for life. Some people are unfortunate but I believe that every relationship can be saved. You are meant to be together when thinking about marriage but it depends on the effort.
Also, before I begin talking about this post. A happy couple is possible but the meaning of being happy is different. It’s not always happy and laughing. Might not last for a long time because it depends on how to maintain it. It’s like being healthy, you need to maintain it and it will be for as long as you keep doing that.
I always love to make it simple for people who think it’s difficult. People might think marriage is more responsibility and that is true. However, that does not mean to scare you. The journey of marriage can have a lot of things. You need to embrace it and learn how to live with it. And you will find yourself enjoying the process.
The happy couple is a general term but let me dive deeper to make it easy for you to understand. Consider your marriage happy if you are good with these things.
Things to consider being a happy couple
- Life is going well with the couple
- Satisfied with everything in the relationship(including bedtime sexually and cuddling, lifestyle in general, and how things going)
- Enjoying good romantic moments
- Supporting each other
- Open books with each other
- Dealing with issues in the best possible for everyone
Well, the list is long but when a happy couple, it doesn’t mean there are no difficult moments I would call. Such as arguing, fighting, and other things like that. Honestly, it’s part of the process to show how you love each other. If it’s true love, you will stick around through everything.
You will know if you are going to be a happy couple or not from the reason why you started. Maybe how you got together can explain the future a little more. Sometimes love at first sight can be developed into real love. However, if you are with your partner for a particular reason such as money, or feeling lonely. Trying to hook up with someone and got together to do that. You need to prepare yourself ahead of time.
Some of the happy couple and love quotes that I love. They can help us to learn one thing or two.
Love is a two-way street constantly under construction. Said by Carroll Bryant
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength while loving someone deeply gives you courage. Said by Lao Tzu
Don’t settle for a relationship that won’t let you be yourself. By Oprah
You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams. By Dr. Seuss
If I had a flower every time I thought of you, I could walk in my garden forever. Said by Alfred Tennyson
This type of relationship is called short-term. And you won’t enjoy it if you moved to the next level of marrying. There is a reason why you take years until you marry someone. Because you need to get to know them better. Know each other in every situation and how to handle things being together.

Sometimes it might seem too real. And you think it’s the one. However, later down the road, things get difficult. You can’t predict the future but you can set the road for it. If it’s working very well at the moment. Don’t get too comfortable and keep working on it. And I mean working as doing what you need to do to set for life.
What you need to do to create a good life as a couple
As I mentioned, being happy doesn’t mean laughing all the time. Having a great time nonstop. That’s a fantasy and even movies and anime couples do fight. Some great examples of how things happen in life and what you need to do. However, today I want to mention some of the things that can help you have a great life being a couple. Which is one of the things that make you a happy couple.
Always be with your partner and never let ask something from others
It seems a bit long but I can guarantee you that this is one of the things most relationship end. Your partner demands should your concern all the time. And you can find a way to deal with this. Well, some people think that this might be too much to handle but it’s not everything at once.
Partners can sometimes tell you what they need. But other times they would hint it to you. It should be easy if you focus and understand your partner more. So, try to get to know each other more until there is nothing to know. I’m talking about everything and in every situation.
- Spicy fun time
- Help with an assignment or work
- Variety in everything (doesn’t mean at once)
- Love and affections
Some people might think that they don’t know how to do things. That means don’t need to be with your partner. You can still be with her/him even with an expert helping her/him such as a personal trainer. Maybe a gym coach to help build the body and be fit. Keeping track of her/his progress can be a good way to be with your partner. Visit your partner and cheer her/him up also another way to be with her.
I know and I’m aware that being with them 24/7 can make your partner feel uncomfortable. No need to accompany them all the time and there are so many ways to be with them without physically being with them. Although this might be thinking to others while some love it when their partner is always with them.

If you don’t do this, then your partner will find it from someone else. Maybe others will give her what you didn’t and as a human, it is easy to lose track and focus on the moment at hand.
Communication is very important
We all know this and some of the relationships end because of that. Whether it’s a marriage or just a normal relationship as boyfriend and girlfriend. Develop a good communication system to help both of you to enjoy and never miss a thing. And just in case you think communication is just calling and talking. Well, let him understand it better.
- Communicate about problems
- Issues in your life or with each other
- Risks and threats to your relationship and marriage
- Things both of you want to do or get
These are some of the things that couples should communicate with each other. Whether long distance or living together in the same house. You still need these to protect your relationship and maintain good and happy times with your couple.
Figure out a way to deal with difficult times together
I’m sure many of us already know about this. Many happy couples already did this. And you can relate if you are one. We can’t live without difficult times even if we are single. You will still have a lot of difficult moments. However, the ones who are happy, those are figured out how to deal with them.

I can’t ever mention a way to help you to figure out how to deal with the difficulties. Because it depends on both of you. Sit with each other and talk about it before getting through one. Should when you guys started the relationship because it will take a while to figure it out.
Difficult times examples
- Arguing with each other
- Fighting over something
- Doing mistakes
- Going through emotional moments (such as anger, being upset)
Well, I wanted to mention some of the difficult moments you might go through. And it’s not all because we might go through many moments. However, the list is some of the categories of them. You can talk about it and figure out a way which handles the situation and not hurt any of you.
Enjoy life and have an adventure together
This is something many happy long relationships and married couples have. Whether married or even single, boring life is not good. You got to have an adventure and something that your partner would be happy to be with you. So, going on an adventure, and enjoying your life is a good thing.
Try to make your relationship interesting, and maybe do something for the first time together. Create special memories together. These things will make your partner feel pain when thinking to cheat on you. Your partner will have more reasons to be loyal than cheating for a silly moment.
Set boundaries and protect your relationship
Both can have boundaries but I’m not talking about it. Not boundaries between each other but between both of you and others. Many people will try to ruin your relationship. Even if it’s your best friend wouldn’t hesitate to have sex with the person you love. Things that could ruin the relationship is also something both of you need to be careful such as being in a moment you can’t control it.
Being drunk alone or at the club. Letting a person get closer to you touching you or anything. In some moments we humans can’t control it even if we don’t want it. Such as a friend leaning in for a kiss some people might find it difficult to pull away. Many moments could occur and ruin your relationship. Protect each other from these things and set boundaries and plan to tackle them together.
Whether it’s a person, object, or anything that is a threat, Make sure to work together and improve to be safe from that. This way, you will be able to find a good life and be happy together.
Q: Do these things you mentioned apply to one side of the relationship or marriage?
A: Good question if you have this one. Well, it surely applies to everyone in a relationship or marriage. And a one-sided relationship or marriage will never last long and might have difficult times. You need to do everything together and fight for a happy life together.
Q: What a happy couple means?
A: When you see a couple being happy and enjoying their relationship. That means they are happy together romantically and everything is going well for them. At the beginning of marriage, usually when they are at the most happiness level.
Q: How can you tell a happy couple?
A: These are things to notice when looking at happy couples. They have good communication and they follow the things that I mentioned above. Problems and difficult times are nothing to them. And they can handle it very well together.
Q: How long until you can achieve a happy couple lifestyle?
A: Depend on how well you work. Sometimes it can be faster than usual. But it usually takes months if not weeks. Try to work on a plan to maintain it even after you achieve that.

Good post on a worthwhile topic! Love the Carroll Bryant quote. Communication is huge for that constant construction. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you for reading and commenting your thoughts about this,
Many points to consider here! Communication is a game changer for most relationships! Without good communication things will fall apart. Good tips included!
Thank you for reading and commenting your thoughts about this.
Very wise post. As someone who is happily married for the 2nd time, my advice is to ensure you really understand your partner’s point of view on all the important stuff before you commit to a long term relationship: politics, religion, how you would bring up children, long term goals. And be prepared to compromise because a relationship won’t work otherwise.
Great advice, thank you for sharing that with us!
Very good post! I like that you start off by saying that being happy is different for everyone and that it doesn’t mean you’ll be smiling and laughing all the time.
Thank you for reading and commenting your feedback about this.
This is a very interesting read and I agree with you on so many points but like you said communication … so important!
Yeah, all these are important and we need them. Thank you for reading!
great read! it really does take effort and a good attitude to maintain a happy relationship!
Yeah, it’s important to put in the effort. Thank you for reading!
I am in a happy long-distance relationship. We make sure that we make time for each other and communication is key especially if you are in a LDR. Thank you for sharing these points.
Great, glad to know you are in a happy relationship. Thank you for reading!
Amazing post! I love the FAQ at the end; this post is an inspiration to so many couples. Thanks for taking the time to write it!

Right? Very important to have communication. Thank you and glad to know you enjoyed it.
Another great post Fransic! I especially enjoyed the quotes – so beautiful!
Thank you so much!
Brilliant posts you have raised. For real communication is a key to a happy couple. If a couple is not communicating that is a red flag. Thanks for sharing
Thank you so much and glad to know you found it a brilliant post.
It is so important to keep working on your marriage every day. Just because you got married doesn’t mean it stops there. That’s actually when the real work starts. I am fortunate to say I am in a happy marriage and the key to this is open communication. No matter how hard the topic is.
Thank you so much for reading and commenting your thoughts. We do need to work on it.
Great post as always! Being a happy couple definitely takes work but is definitely achievable. It gets easier with the passage of time. I’ve been married for 21years.
Wow, that’s amazing. Thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts about it.
It’s true, you’ll need to learn how your partner argues or deals with conflict. Happy relationships take work for sure!
That’s a good way to put it. Knowing about how a partner argues can help to deal with it.
Thanks for this post….I will like to subscribe to your posts and get more info on such topics. It takes God to maintain a relationship.
Thank you for reading and would appreciate it a lot if you do subscribe.
Agreed! These are important points to consider to achieve a happy couple lifestyle. Communication will always rank number 1 in my book in terms of maintaining happiness because in a relationship it’s not always a happy moment. When you can work through the hard times together then that’s really the time you know that you are meant to be together.
That’s awesome, it’s important to do that. Thank you for reading!
Setting healthy boundaries in a relationship is important. And I agree with the other things you mentioned in your post. Speaking your partner’s love language is a great way to be happy in a relationship.
I’m glad you agree with these. Thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts!
It is important to stay on top of relationship health, and not let things deteriorate, such as communication etc. These are all good thoughts on what goes into a good relationship.
Thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts about this.
Happily married for almost 26 years. It takes work and time…and having fun together.
Wow, that’s amazing! Wish you be happy forever.
I can personally attest that Marriage or long-term relationships are always under construction. But patience, understanding, respect, and trust will go a long way!
That’s awesome, it’s important to have all of these.
Some of my friends spend so much time worrying about the appearance of their relationship and how it will appear on social media, I think they forget to check if they are actually happy with each other! Great post xxx
Right? We can’t be distracted by what other think of us. Thank you for reading!
Excellent post! Really helpful for couples and a great reminder because relationships constantly need work if it were to survive and flourish. Love the quotes!
Yeah, we need to have reminders. Thank you for reading!
Great advice with maintaining a long and fruitful relationship.
Thank you for reading and commenting!
Setting boundaries is always important for a happy relationship. Great stuff!
Yeah, it’s good to protect the relationship,
I must say it’s insightful and heartwarming. The practical tips and personal anecdotes make it relatable and engaging.
Thank you so much haha! That’s very nice of you to share that about it.
Love that you quoted Alfred Tennyson! Great article and insight.
Thank you so much! Glad that you loved it.
I strongly believe that one of the main things that maintain or sustain a happy couple or relationship is the development of a genuine friendship. Having a strong friendship with your partner will help a couple ride through the storms and floods that may come into a relationship. Thank you for sharing this blog.
Right? That’s good and nice to have a good belief that could help to maintain good relationship.
I love this post! Honestly, I didn’t think that happy relationships last too long due to bad personal experience BUT 7 years ago(in fact it’s our 7th anniversary today ;d) I met this amazing person who proves me every single day how wrong I was to think this kind of relationships don’t really exist. On the top of it he gave me the best gift I could ever ask for – our adorable son. Soooo guys don’t settle for less only because you invested some time in the relationship. Look for your happy ending :)))
Thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts. It’s certainly not about the bad personal experience only.
I appreciate your emphasis on setting boundaries and protecting the relationship from external factors. It’s an often overlooked aspect of maintaining a healthy partnership. Thanks for sharing these valuable insights!
Yeah, we must do that. Thank you for reading!
These are great tips and advice on how to have a good and happy relationship. Communication is key to a healthy long-term relationship for it is the basis of everything, and boundaries are also important without it there would be total enmeshment and lack of individuality or growth. Thank you for sharing this post, I enjoyed reading it and hope you have a happy April!
Yeah, it’s very important to have good communication. Thank you for reading!
