Do you sometimes find it impossible to understand your partner? You're not alone. Many people feel the same way – as if nothing they do is right. But there are things you can do to improve your relationship.

Take action:


Forget what you see in the movies and on TV. Reality is very far from this idealised presentation of relationships. In real life, partners, or spouses, or you, sometimes pick up weight, become like their parents, have affairs, are unreasonable and selfish, spend your money or pack their bags and leave. But they can also be kind, considerate, loving, entertaining, supportive and wonderful. Sometimes even better than you see on TV – and it's for real. Find a way to communicate with your partner. Read books, see a marriage counsellor, make time for each other and do some fun things together.
