Here Are The Top 10 Secrets Of Highly Successful Power Couples
I was having dinner with a few girlfriends over the weekend and we were talking about what makes some relationships last for a lifetime and others slowly fade away in plain sight.
We were talking about our current long-term relationships and what it takes to reach relationship success as a power couple in today’s busy world. There was a wide variety of perspectives with everyone’s relationship experiences, family upbringings, and personalities.
At the end of dinner, I came up with the ten must-haves that I find to be crucial and implement in my marriage today.
Here are 10 Secrets of Successful Power Couples:
1. Power Couples Make Their Relationship A Priority
From running businesses to catching up with family, the one thing they don’t let slip through the cracks is their relationship. They make time for each other because they truly enjoy each other’s company. They aren’t just lovers, they are best friends who love to share about their day and laugh at all the silly things that happened. So while they are blasted with non-stop emails throughout the workday, they still give each other time to bond, as it's their daily touches of consistency that keep strong and a united front.
2. Power Couples Resolve Their Issues Respectfully
All couples have their differences that arise from time to time. In fact, if they aren’t
discussing what’s going on between the two of them, then it means things are being shoved under the rug. Relationships stay afloat when couples are relating to one another and resolving their differences in an amicable manner. Even though they may experience different perspectives on big topics, it doesn’t mean one needs to raise their voice or blame their partner for issues that come up. Seeing conflict as a door to have a constructive conversation, actually brings power couples closer and makes the relationship stronger.
3. Power Couples Find Forgiveness
Power couples know how to let things go. They know neither are perfect and will make mistakes throughout the relationship. However, they will not show resentment but find ways to ask or show forgiveness with their partner. They believe their relationship is more powerful than holding a grudge out of pride. While feelings may sting for one or both partners during times of turmoil, they create space to heal and keep working towards better alignment as a team.
4. Power Couples Share Similar Values and Goals
They both know they are of high value when it comes to knowing who they are and owning their worth. While they are independently successful on their own, valuing their relationship where they both feel emotionally secure in the connection is key. Their emotional needs are met with each other which allows the couple to embrace each other and talk about their future relationship goals. If one partner isn’t feeling like they are getting their needs met, then the couple may have different long-term goals for the connection. This alone can make or break a relationship as shared similarities are just as important as having individual differences.
