1. Be open about your feelings 

Bottling away anger or sadness is a bad move in any relationship but especially a romantic relationship. Make a promise to each other to be open about your feelings. It’s good practice for marriage, too!

2.  Don’t ignore your wedding planning duties 

Life can get hectic and sometimes you forget to keep up with your wedding planning duties. This will only lead to more stress for both you and your significant other! Make a resolution to sit down throughout the week and stay on top of your planning. 

3. Spend more time with family 

This is a great idea for single people, too! Don’t let work or wedding planning take up all your time. It’s important to schedule time to spend with your family. Also don’t forget to include them in your wedding planning! 

4. Consider premarital counseling 

This is more than just a resolution, this is planning for your future! Make a promise to each other to prepare yourselves for marriage. This includes premarital counseling.

5. Show more interest in each other’s hobbies

While it’s important to have your own hobbies and interests, it’s also important to support your significant other’s fun. Even if you may not find their interests exciting, if they chose to share it with you, be enthusiastic. 

6. Listen to each other’s advice 

This can be particularly difficult if you or your significant other is stubborn! It’s important to listen to each other’s advice when you are looking for help or an opinion. 

7. Be generous 

Gifts aren’t limited to just holidays and anniversaries. It’s important to do nice things for your significant other year round. It doesn’t have to be an expensive gift, just something to show that you love and appreciate them. 

8. Pass out the compliments 

It’s important to never lie to your partner, but don’t be afraid to pass out compliments. If they cooked a delicious meal or just look really confident that day, tell them! It’ll boost their mood and confidence.
