Take up a new activity together

Play sexual games

Keeping your sexual quotient active is always a good idea. Physical intimacy is a great way to improve your bond.

Plan your future together

It could be financial planning or just planning for a family together. Taking joint decisions is an important task to keep the boat sailing.

Surprise each other

The element of surprise always adds a spice to a relationship be it your little thoughtful gifts or those small pecks or long drives.

"All these little moments spent together get wired together and form a beautiful relationship for you and your partner to cherish. Ups and downs are a part of every relationship but having a bond helps you enjoy every moment together," concludes Arouba.
