Licensed marriage and family therapist Robyn D’Angelo shared a number of skills that your relationship might benefit from.

1. Know your partner’s world.

"Research has revealed that a powerful predictor of relationship stability is whether couples, particularly husbands, create a cognitive understanding of their relationship and their partner,” said D’Angelo, who maintains a private practice in Laguna Hills, Calif.

Having a deep understanding of your partner's world can help you to cope with stressful events and conflict in your relationship.

2. Know your partner’s love language.

Often, “we automatically show our partners love and try to meet their needs the way we feel loved or by doing things that would meet our needs.” This usually leads to distress, disappointment and miscommunication.

Understanding your partner's love language can help partners express love in a way that is appreciated and acknowledged.
