2. Disconnect your phones and other devices
We live in a technological world, and very often this takes away the couples in time when they could be chatting, giving affection or having a time of intimacy.

This does not mean letting negativity overload all day but set aside at least 15 or 30 minutes to relax and lean on the relationship, showing support for the other relationships and experiences in the couple's life. Often, both can appreciate this opportunity and, when they feel understood, they really feel prepared to face the tensions of the next day. Do not hesitate to listen to your partner...
