10 pieces of relationship advice to live by

A relationship is challenging at the best of times but throw in a couple of kids, the house, and job and they nearly become more hassle than they’re worth. Nearly.

Here are 10  pieces of relationship advice to stick to, no matter what.

On disagreements

Admit when you are wrong, shut up when you are right.

On finances

Don’t fight about money because after you’ve fought and said things you regret, the amount of money in the bank will still be the same.

On bank accounts
