Relationships take work. It's not always about couples counseling and conflict resolution. Sometimes it's about remembering the little things.

Yahoo Shine offers some simple tips to keep the passion alive:

  • Keep that breath fresh- You can whisper all the sweet nothings you want in your lover's ear, but if your breath smells like a corpse, your partner is not going to want to hear it.
  • Tone down the sarcasm- Many relationships fail because partners criticize each other. So leave the snark-casm at the door when you get home.
  • Make the most of your "bed" time- Turn that TV off, leave the work in the office, and reconnect with each other.
