While we can establish that there's no such thing as the perfect couple, we can agree that there are truly happy couples who despite their differences, have withstood the test of time.
Relationships of any kind are never without their challenges but the key to any successful relationship lies largely inn trust and understanding, to name a few.

We observed more than a few couples and based on this, we can infer that truly happy couples do the following things:
1. They share a belief system: The core of every great relationship is hinged on a shared belief system. With a shared interest in hobbies, subject matters and ideologies, a couple's compatibility is further strengthened thus making it easier to get along.
2. They communicate honestly: Communication is key in any relationship, more so when it is done honestly. Happy couples realise the importance of this and are open about their feelings with each other because misgivings give room to distrust which eventually leads to the breakdown of a relationship.
3. They trust each other: As stated earlier, the absence of trust in any relationship whether romantic or a work relationship inevitably leads to the breakdown of such a relationshp. Happy couples trust each other because they honestly communicate with one another and know to resolve any misunderstandings quickly.
4. They don't let the sun set on their anger: The longer a misunderstanding lasts, the more it festers, creating a hostile and bitter environment which is never a good thing.
5. They eat together: It may seem like a simple enough gesture, but sharing a meal is a chance for couples to bond.
6. They forgive each other: Human beings are prone to making mistakes and mature couples understand this, which is why they forgive each other when they miss their way.
