Relationship Tips to Grow Close and Stay Close

Relationship Tip 1

My family loves movies. In the theater, on DVD and VCR at home, and now even in the van.

I'm sure it's because of what I do that I look for relationship tips and messages everywhere I go.

The movies are full of examples of what to do and what not to do in relationships.

Yesterday I took our boys to see "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" with Johnny Depp. Let's see, how shall I say this..................the person that got the most out of the experience was our youngest, who fell asleep in my lap for half of the movie.

That said, there is one relationship tip I was able to pull from the movie:

Believe in the dreams of your loved ones, even when..............no, especially when, no one else does.

It's another way to say I love you.

2) Relationship Tip 2

Many of us had the word ``honor' in our wedding vows. So what does it really mean, anyway?

Webster's defines honor in this way: ``to hold in the highest esteem.'

Consider what your marriage might be like if you viewed your partner as precious to you, as someone to hold in the highest esteem.

What would it feel like to be treated in this way by your partner?

Might you then want to return the honor?
