Going to bed together with your partner will help keep the romance in your relationship alive. You should also make sure you and your partner get a good amount of sleep daily. A study from the University of California, Berkeley found that couples who reported poor sleep were much more likely to argue with their partner the next day.

3. TRY NEW THINGS TOGETHER
Trying new things together with your partner would help keep the romance in your relationship alive. A study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology found that couples who try new things together often have higher-quality relationships.
4. HUG YOUR PARTNER REGULARLY
Hugging your partner regularly helps keep your relationship healthy and alive. Hugging your partner regularly sends a positive message to your partner while also making you feel more comfortable with your partner.
5. NEVER FORGET TO SAY THANK YOU
We become too comfortable with our partner that we feel it’s not necessary for us to say thank you when our partner helps out with chores or buys us gift. Saying thank you even when the deed is little would help keep your relationship alive.
6. DO NOT MAKE SEX MONOTONOUS
Add new elements of play into your sex life so it doesn’t get monotonous. One way to do this is by having sex in a different place. Sex mustn’t always be in the bedroom; there are other places like the bathroom, kitchen etc that you can explore.
