Everyone dreams of a lasting and happy love. However, this is something unattainable, which is still a dream. We are used to see beautiful love stories in the movies, we read about them in books, but we are not used to showing them in our lives. Why is everything so difficult?

Many people do not know how to keep their relationship and love; they make a lot of mistakes that eventually lead to divorce and breakup. After a certain period of time, they begin to date with other people, but again they make the same mistakes…and again breakups and divorces.

What is the secret of lasting relationship? How can you keep your relationship forever? Agree that it is very cool to watch older couples who are still together after so many years. And this is not a movie, it’s reality! Without a doubt, this is a very difficult job on the part of both partners, but it's worth it!

A long-term relationship is definitely one of the most adventurous journeys that anyone will ever willingly choose to travel. If there is only one piece of advice that could be offered, it would be this: relationships are investments, not trades. Scroll down to see a list of 5 lessons on building a lasting relationship!

#1. You have to work on your relationship every day

Most people prefer to pay more attention to their partners only on holidays and important events. This is a gross mistake! Three days a year to show how much you love someone is not enough. Learn to give love to your partner every day; you do not need to give expensive gifts, simple things and care, this is true love.

#4. There must be a spiritual component to your relationship

The amount of time you spend together exploring your spirituality is important, even if you come from two very different faiths.
