A LOT OF PEOPLE spend fortunes on relationship counseling and expensive self-help books just trying to work out how to make their relationships work smooth, they all want to go the distance i.e, have a long lasting relationship.
But the solution to achieving that long lasting relationship, according to a renowned relationship expert, is actually quite simple.
TOGETHER FOREVER: Expert reveals the secret to a long lasting relationship and it’s so simple!
Sharing his golden tip for a long explained that the key to a happy and long lasting relationship, British relationship expert Mark Manson, author of the book, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F***, insisted that boredom is key.
Strange as this may sound, the expert certainly does have his reasons and they are based on logical experience.
In a recent interview with a popular British magazine after the release of his book, Mark Manson insists that a close look at some of the happiest and longest relationship he has ever come across reveals them as some of the most boring.
How To Make Your Relationship A long lasting relationship!
According to Mark Mason, for a relationship to service long, through thick and thin, it should be as boring as possible!
“And that sounds really weird to people but if you think about it, a really happy 80-year-old couple that’s been together for 60 years, the reason that they’ve been together for 60 years, it isn’t because they took all these private jets and they had these crazy vacations and “Oh my God, look at their pictures.
“It’s because that they were able to be boring together.”
Mark Manson, I have to repeat for your doubting mind is a relationship expert and author of the book, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F***. While we are looking for ways to liven up our relationships, this man insisting that being ‘boring’ together as a couple is the best way to stay together.
Mark Mason explains that the partnerships of a couple often have longevity because they are capable of spending so much time just doing ordinary things in each other’s company without any kind of big drama.
Mark Morgan points out that his idea or searching for something boring might sound counter-cultural or downright illogical because these days, everyone is so keen to be as interesting as possible, we all want to be that interesting person that attracts others.
But Mark Does have a point because a look at the cross-section of modern society shows that the most unhappy couple are the rich one with all the money for an existing wedding and a life full of fun afterward. But such union often hit the rocks in record them, particularly when it’s a celebrity couple involved.
Having seen a good many happy and long-lasting relationships of my own, I have to agree with Mr. Mark Mason.
In a strange way, there is the need to cultivate more boredom in our relationships. Treat things like boredom needs to be okay to live with. Technically, this is living normal day to day life with your partner. If you cannot do this successfully, that chances are that relationship will not last.
