There's solidarity in togetherness for you

Harmony and a single vision in life are more important to you then rocking the applecart with disagreements. You respect each other too much to go opposite your partner's needs. The peace that you get in a stable home is reassuring, and gives you the strength to face difficulties in life. However, there's a danger of things getting too monotonous. A routine can kill a relationship, so rustle up some spice and excitement in your relationship to make it the stability last... forever!

Space makes us to tick together
The more freedom you give your partner, the longer your relationship lasts. Retaining one's individuality and independence is of prime importance to lead a fulfilling life together. If your partner chooses to go out without you for an outing, you don't sit at home and sulk about it. Instead, you choose to have your fun by catching up with friends. Life is anything but boring to you as a couple. But again, too much of face may leave disconnected with each other at some point of time. A little stability goes a long way to keep you connected through many seasons.

Variety's spices up your life together
Both love to have a good time, enjoy a good argument and welcome people of varied inclinations in your space, that's why you are even the most popular couple in your circle. Usually, this lot tends to be creative, multifaceted and never get tired of having friends and families around you. But it is very important you find time together just as a couple, the moments spent in only each other's company can boost any relationship. So make that time for us-time only!
