10 Best Relationship Books to Help You Love and Live 10 December, 2018   

When in a relationship one should be loving but not possessive, caring but not clingy, concerned yet not doubtful and be willing to take responsibility without being dominant. A couple can be deeply in love and still, their relationship can take a turn for the worse if not handled well or if taken for granted. People ‘fall' in love but marriage or relationship is planned, and it just proves that though it might be easy to fall in love, the challenging part is to keep the candle of love alight every day even while they cope with the daily life problems.

 And this is where most people fail. In most relationships, the initial love, excitement to be together or do things together during their courting period seems to fade away once they are committed, life becomes monotonous. What people do not tend to realize is staying in love can be exciting and blissful as falling in love and, in the long run, you have a happier life and health. And this is where most people fail.

 A good relationship can be like a good garden. Nurture it with warmth, water it, keep it trimmed, and it looks beautiful, green and blossoms, ignore it, and it will be overgrown with weeds, become dry and can even kill the plants.  A strong, healthy bond is what everyone wishes for. However, maintaining a healthy relationship requires the couple to take a lot of efforts and you also need to think from your partner's perspective.

For that, you need to understand the opposite sex better. It might seem like a ridiculous suggestion because people are unique and all couples are different, and we meet people of the opposite sex all the time. Even so, more than the appearances or the physical differences men and women differ in their thought processes and understanding the differences can be an essential key to good relationships.
