#8 Be tolerant of their quirks
Every person has their own quirks and as their partner, be tolerant of it. Keep in mind that no one is perfect and you have your own flaws. If something about your partner’s personality bothers you, be patient, communicate positively; help them to always strive to be their best and to grow.
