Modern relationships are fast, complex, and vulnerable. Young couples often find it hard to maintain a good relationship.
Young couples or teenage couples aren’t patient enough to understand the meaning of a relationship. But that isn’t their fault; with time comes maturity.
We all once were young, and we were in love too. As a teenage girl, I was in love with the concept of ‘love’ itself. I used to think love is exactly how all the cinema portrays.
To feel the love, all I need is a boy. Silly, I know. I am sure many have had such experiences like me.
The definition of love shifts gradually when you become a young adult. You always want to be with your perfect partner.
You build an image of your would-be girlfriend/boyfriend, and when you finally meet that person, all you ever want is to be with him/her.
It sounds so simple, isn’t it?
Once both feel that magical spark, you have officially become a lovey-dovey young couple. You are head over heels in love, want to be with your partner 24/7, and you feel it is the best time of your life.
After a few months or years, when the magical spark fades away and issues erupted in your relationship, the moment you feel claustrophobic, that’s the end of your relationship.
In a nutshell, young couples can maintain a good relationship, and their relationship can also last longer, but how? (Please refer to the link)
In this blog post, I will specifically share 10 best relationship advice for young couples to nurture their relationship.

10 Best Relationship Advice for Young Couples
Take It Slow
When you are young, and in a relationship, it is normal to feel that he/she is the one and you will spend eternity with her/him.
Remember, you and your partner are both young. There is no hurry or rush to get married. It’s a beautiful feeling to be in love; take it slow and enjoy each moment.
Relationship requires commitment and time; utilize this time to understand and know each other well.
Talk to each other as much as you can, know each other’s interests, opinions, likes & dislikes. As a young couple, you can explore a lot about each other. Hence, don’t push it; go with the flow.
Communication is key
If you have read my previous ‘relationship’ contents, you will notice how much I press on the importance of ‘communication’ in a relationship.
If you want to make your relationship/marriage work, communication is always the key element. Couples these days ignore this important element, resulting in massive misunderstanding.
Communication is the solution to any problem in a relationship.
When you are young, you are more vulnerable to emotions; if you have some issues with your partner or going through some differences, always communicate with them.
Young couples fail to understand and fail to communicate with their partner in their relationship effectively.
If that’s lacking in your relationship, there are chances your relationship won’t last long. So, try to communicate more and in an effective way.
Respect Each Other
The third best relationship advice for young couples I have is to respect each other. It doesn’t matter how much you love if you don’t respect each other.
I have seen and heard how young couples, sometimes under the influence of anger or any negative emotions, disrespect their partner.
They sometimes even go to the extent of hurting and abusing their partner. These kinds of behavior make your relationship toxic and leave a scar permanently on your partner’s heart and soul.
For example: If you are having a bad day and your partner is expecting something from you. Instead of losing your mind and abusing you can politely decline by giving her/him the reasons.
How can you maintain the dignity of your relationship?
In a relationship, there should have certain boundaries that determine where your relationship stands.
To maintain a good and healthy relationship, young couples need to draw some lines among themselves when in a relationship.
Your relationship, of course, should be based on mutual respect and love, keeping your dignity intact.
No one wants to be treated badly. If your relationship runs on the four important parameters, it will surely survive, and yours will be a happy relationship.
What are those four parameters?
Respect, Understanding, Trust, and Love.
Just because you are in a relationship that doesn’t allow you to jump on the bed or putting social restrictions on each other.
If your partner is asking for little space, respect that. As a partner, you must lend your ears to understand her/his opinion.
You must remember that your partner’s opinion is as important as yours. Do not dominate or show your power over her/him.
Do not be Obsessed with Each Other
In a relationship, obsession is bad; it turns the love into toxic and makes your partner feel suffocated.
Why do you have to obsessed?
Your partner is not your property. If there is love, you don’t have to worry about him/her leaving you.
Obsession kills the sweetness of a relationship. You must give each other a little space and time. Let each other enjoy in their space.
Both are having a separate life with friends and family; you are not married to each other, so your lives are not intertwined yet.
So, live your life and let live your partner. Being in a relationship doesn’t mean you have to be with each other all the time.
Always remember you are young; there is a whole world out there waiting for you to explore.
Young couples usually lack ‘patience.’ They are full of life, enthusiastic, vibrant, and want to do everything in their life.
When you are in a relationship as a young couple, you must be patient with each other.
There will be a ton of difficult situations where you have to deal patiently. You have to be calm and composed.
Not always there will be butterflies and happiness around you. There will be ups and downs even when you are young.
Young couples too face difficulties in their relationship.
For example, your partner got an opportunity abroad to study; hence it will be a long-distance relationship, and everybody knows how challenging a long-distance relationship can be.
There will be misunderstandings; your partner may not give you the time that you want, both may get distant from each other.
What will you do break up?
Breaking up is not the solution. If you both are patient and communicate, you can handle the situation better.
Do Not Drag the Past into the Present
You might have had a relationship before your current partner. I am sure you had some good moments, but you don’t have to share every now and then with your current partner.
It will give birth to insecurity and jealously in your relationship.
Two negative elements that you should always keep your relationship away from.
Your past is your past. Everybody has their past, good or bad, and your past shouldn’t interfere with your present.
Young adults tend to ignite jealousy in their partners by telling them about their past relationships. Most of the young adults do so to see how much their partner loves them.
This is certainly not the best way to test your love.
Spend Time to Know Each Other Well
When you are young adults, you are not bounded by much responsibilities. You are pretty much free to do anything (legal).
You may be in college, have a part-time job, spend weekends with your family, and have an amazing love partner.
If your relationship is new, you will be very excited to know and spend time together. You can plan budget-friendly dating ideas or plan a game night at the arcade.
There are plenty of date ideas for young couples which are fun and romantic. You can help each other in your studies as well. This will let you know each other’s career aspirations and ambitions.
Actions are Important Than Words
When you start dating, and in a relationship as young adults, you would want to make an impression on your love partner. It is a natural tendency.
You will dress up nice, try to hide the things that he/she dislikes, you would want her/him to see your best side.
In a nutshell, you will pretend and say a lot of things that are not even true.
Everybody does this during the initial few weeks of dating. As time passes, actions become more important than words.
Eventually, your partner will come to know the truth about you. Do not make false promises or say anything false about yourself.
Be truthful to yourself and to your love partner. Show your partner the real you; you don’t have to pretend or make her/him to like you.
Let it be natural.
Enjoy the Moment
The last best relationship advice for a young couple I have, ‘live and enjoy the moment of being in a relationship.’
When you are young, being in love feels different and unique.
Give your relationship the time to enjoy the moment. There shouldn’t be any pressure or expectations and any rush to take your relationship to the next level.
It is very important to enjoy the company with your partner.
These are my 10 best relationship advice for young couples who are deeply in love and want to make their relationship work.
