It doesn’t really matter how long you spend basking in each other’s company before you fall asleep. Whether it’s an hour or a handful of minutes, all that matters is that the two of you finish the day talking, laughing or simply expressing your love for each other.
Below is a list of 12 simple rules that happy couples, who have stood the test of time, swear by. If you have ever wondered about what the secret to harmonious happiness is, then, look no further. Take some notes too – you’re so going to need them.
