Carmelo and I just celebrated our two-year wedding anniversary, but this summer it will be nine years that we’ve been together. One thing I get asked all the time is, How do you do it? How do you keep your relationship fresh and fun and going strong after nine years? Well I can’t claim to be an expert, but Melo and I do have a couple tips that have kept our relationship strong over the past decade, and I’m more than happy to share them with you.
Number 1 is communication. Communication is key. As long as you’re open and honest with each other, you’ll be able to work through your problems together.
Number 2 is don’t overcrowd your significant other. Allow each other to have space and do your own thing, and then the time you spend together will be even more precious.
9 years might seem like a long time, but it’s only the beginning. We’re in it for the long haul!
