10 Tips to a Healthy Relationship After 100 Happy Months


Today marks 100 months since my husband, Nico, and I have officially been together.  100 months ago today a goofy teenager danced around Busch Gardens, a Tampa theme park, and asked me to be his girlfriend in the parking lot.  Not exactly the beginning of one of Keats’ romantic poems, but it is the beginning of our story.

Many relationships have seen 100 months come and go unnoticed, but I think that is what makes us special – the little things.  As this milestone approached, I found myself thinking more and more about acknowledging the little details that make a healthy relationship.  The things that you may think don’t matter once you’ve seen each other naked are the most important.

Below, Nico and I have compiled a list of tidbits of advice to couples out there looking to build a healthy relationship…whether you’re in month 1 or 101.

1. Manners –  You’ve probably cursed at your partner more than anyone else, but don’t forget your please’s and thank you’s.   When I clean the house, I always get a thank you.  When I ask for a favor, I always say please.  Just because typical formalities are out the window, doesn’t mean that you should stop showing your partner that you’re grateful for what they do.

2. Smooch – In the beginning, you kissed A LOT right? Well, just because your intimacy has advanced doesn’t mean that kissing is an old trick.  I read once that you should make out for 15 minutes minimum everyday.  And it works!  There’s a special little intimacy to kissing that you should never underestimate.Read More »
