You have to accept that your partner is like she / he is.
- Always having to win an argument
People fight and argue with the intention to prove that they are right, and the reason for that is their ego which tries to dominate. In case you are in situation to argue with your partner you have to try to stay calm and present your point of view. Let your partner to present her or his point of view and even then try to solve the problem – doing it together.
- Allowing a third person to interfere
This is very common mistake which many young and modern couples are making. If a third person interferes in your relationship you have to be aware that it will make the things even worse.

- Disrespecting differences
It’s a fact that there are not 2 identical persons in this world. We all are different in some way. It’s essential to respect all differences between your partner and you.
When some person has very strong ego, it is really hard for them to accept fault. However, you should think twice when you are arguing with your partner if he/she is the person you love. Letting him or her know that you are sorry won’t hurt. Even in case you are not wrong, you can offer honest apology. You should never let your ego destroy the love you have for your partner.
Maintaining communication is essential for each relationship. Whether there is a small or big problem between you and your partner, you need to know that many relationships end as a result of lack of communication.
Always respect the opinion of your partner. For example, when you want to create a family as soon as possible, and if your partner requires more time to prepare for such big responsibility, you need to talk about that and make wise compromise from the both sides. Listen to your partner, talk about all the possibilities,and decide what is best for the both of you.
