20 Quotes To Help You Through A Rough Patch In Your Relationship

20 Relationship Quotes To Help You Through A Rough Patch
Love

Whatever you do, try not to let go without a fight.

Even when you love someone, staying together can be HARD.

There are days where you hate the way they chew, how much their feet stink, and for the love of god have the EVER heard of using the dishwasher?

Sometimes love sucks. 

But even when your struggle runs a little deeper than dirty dishes and body odor, you stay.

Because love is so much BIGGER than the hardships you go through.

Step back for a minute and think about your relationship. What was it like in the beginning? When everything they said was beautiful and romantic, and you couldn't find a SINGLE thing wrong with them.

It was magical. It was special. And that person is still there.

Maybe the magic disappears after a while (too much time with ANYONE will do that), but that doesn't change the fact that the person you fell for is still the person you have!

You just need reminders. You need date nights that feel like the first time. You need romance and movie nights and sharing all of the memories you have together.

Nothing good is ever easy to keep.

If it was as simple as falling in love and getting married, divorce rates would be lower. 

It takes WORK. Hard work! From both of you.

You might even hate trying so hard. But it's SO worth it in the end

Can you imagine a life without them? Can you imagine coming home and not having them right by your side?

There's a reason you've made it as far as you have and there's clearly a reason you've stayed. Remember those reasons, because those are the things that are going to make your relationship INVINCIBLE. 

Love takes trust, perseverance, and strength. It's not just presents and kisses and compliments (although those things do help).

Find the magic in your love, even when you don't want to. Even when it feels like your life is anything BUT magical.
