In any relationship, keeping the love alive is really important. It doesn’t matter how strongly you feel about each other at the start. Science proves that after around 3 years, those original chemicals and hormones begin to fade. We stay together after this period due to the connection we’ve built, loyalty, and how much work we continue to put into the relationship.
