Solitary life can’t do you good

Having somebody next to you during your life, who will go through the good and bad things with you is something that we search our whole life for – until we find that special someone. It is much easier to go through all the difficulties that life brings when you have someone next to you, who will share everything with you. Being on your own will eventually lead you to a great deal of disappointment in life. That is why most people opt to live a family life rather than that as a solitary individual.


Just the two of you

Even if you have a big family and your life has always been full of people, you will eventually come to a point in your life where your dearest ones will have their own families and you and your partner will be left, so to say, alone. Of course, your children and grandchildren will visit you, but all their obligations will separate you more and more and in the end you will get to see them once a month, if you are lucky. You are going to spend the rest of your life with your other half – and you might as well make this a good life.


A necessary change

If you feel like your life together needs a change, do it without thinking! In this age, any change can seem great. Maybe this is precisely what you need. Travelling or changing the place of living are both a good idea for an elderly couple who is in need of something fresh. Move to a quiet rural place where you will enjoy country life. Fresh air, walks in nature, agriculture, farming and many other things will benefit your relationship, as well as your whole life – and especially your health. Away from pollution, noise and confusingly fast life, you will have everything that you need. One of the really necessary things that you might lack here is proper medical care, but this little problem can be easily solved. Karen Schnitzerling, a nurse and a consultant from Rural and Remote Nursing assures that there is nothing to worry about, as long as medical care and consultation are concerned, and she adds “Everything will run smoothly in life as long as you are happy and satisfied with what you have!”

Keep your lifetime partner happy

The key to every successful relationship or marriage is to be selfless. You must think of the other one, and this goes especially for all the women out there – accept that you are not always right. Put a little effort in something that means a lot to you and to your partner. Here are some

things that you should work on in order to keep your relationship stabile:

  • Understand and listen to them

This is a crucial thing in every relationship: understanding what the other party wants and needs and listening – because this will make them feel appreciated and important. You must give all those things that you would like to get.

  • Care about them

Forget words – show them that you actually care. Show how much you care about their health, well being, happiness, satisfaction in life and all the small things as well – that counts too. Be there for them when they need you, when they are sick, depressed or simply in need of your complete dedication for no particular reason.

  • Motivate them

Motivate them with a good deed, a gentle touch or a few sweet words. Activate them and give them strength for living their life. Sometimes people need motivation because they give up on life or simply accept things as they are. But, who says that life stops when you get old? This is the right time for achieving and trying things that you never had the time or courage for.

  • Spend time with them

Even though living that long with somebody can make some of your differences surface and even though it might get boring to spend time with each other, you know that at the end of the day, you still love them and that your life without them wouldn’t be the same. Well, unfortunately, life is not eternal and you should spend every moment with your dear ones. You cannot turn back time so start enjoying each other’s company immediately because if you don’t, the only thing you will get is regret.

Simply, show them how much you love them!

Be romantic

You cannot be too old for romance, so don’t let that be your excuse. Be romantic, go together out on dinners, picnics, walks or even do chores together. This is something you should strive for in your relationship. Keep in mind all the important dates: birthdays, anniversaries or even the date of your first kiss. You don’t have to buy big gifts in order to make someone happy even after all those years together – a love letter or a note can still work and this will be far more appreciated too.

Give your loved ones all the attention they deserve and need!

    Hello Ivan,

    I sincerly love the tone of this entry…as someone who dearly loves his wife and intends to grow old with her, this is a piece that surely makes ways – and even points the way to such a great (and fantastic) way of life.

    This article is superb, Ivan! I wish more people actually get to read and appreciate it for what it truly is!

  3. Hello Ivan,

    To me, i’d say love is when you cherish your opposite sex and accept them for who they really are. Doing that, everything else will fall in place :)

  5. Hi Ivan.
    I really enjoyed this article. It sends out such a sweet and important message. I especially agree with the section about changing. Sometimes what you need to do with your partner is to experience something new together. This not only brings your relationship closer but also strengthens your bond. Thanks for the post!

    Boy, “in the end you will get to see them once a month, if you are lucky. ” is a pretty bold statement. I know plenty of people who see their family many more times a month than that. I think generalizing may not be a good idea when it comes to family.

    However, I agree that the relationship between two people needs to be nurtured and looked after. In reality, a relationship when you are older should be fostered the same way it is when you are younger. All of your tips, spending time with them, being romantic, etc, should be done not only when you are old but when you are younger as well.

    My parents are lucky see us a few times a year. I’m half their age, but I look up to their relationship, and they do most things Ivan talks about.
    This article was refreshing because I was just reading a Depression blog, and I was amazed by the number of women so eager to get antidepressants because it made their relationships better, and they were better mothers.
    Now I don’t know about you guys, but I know a lot of people on anti depressants, and Bellaisa can call me down for generalizing, but I’ve never met anybody on anti depressants in a great relationship with their spouse, or kids.
    If only THEY, could SEE it this way.

  10. Thanks Ivan, I really enjoyed this article. This not only brings your relationship closer but also strengthens your bond. Thanks for the post!

  11. Wonderful post. You are so right. In the end you will spend your time mostly with just one person and that relationship will define your life. The habit of treating them well will contribute greatly to you own happiness. I do think, however, that it is important to have others in your life. A circle of friends and acquaintances to sustain you. Some day you significant other may die and you will need support.

    Hey Ivan,
    I totally agree with having the best relationship you can with your life long partner, we all get lonely so it’s good that companionship you have with your better half, is one that is tightly sustained. It is true that nobody wants to grow old alone, so your life partner should give you the balance you need going into your later years.

    Just appreciate your partner for all their strengths, gifts and beauty – tell them and show them how much you love them. This is what you did when you fell in love with them, and it will work throughout your relationship. There is no reason that the ‘Honeymoon’ stage of a relationship cannot last forever.

  16. Another thing is not to let daily commitments get in the way of your relationship. Always spare time, and more importantly, undivided attention for your other half.

    Elderly folks should have a distinct relationship prior to aging. However, there are some older folks who meet for the first time. So yes, a relationship should always be kept pure, uptempo, and healthy.

    OK, this one is making me feel a bit sentimental. This is exactly how I feel about my hubby. We get along so well and I’m just so happy to have met him and started a family. A few years ago, a cute older lady saw us together, came up to us and said “don’t ever lose your romance” and that has always stuck with us. Your pictures were beautiful too.

    One thing is to feel good alone and another one is to finish the life completly alone. Some people shy away from dealing with the rest, and do not build lasting friendships in his youth and to reach old age, they are so lonely that don’t know what to do with their lives.
    I think the article is good, because it makes us aware of this reality. If you have a partner, you better take care of her or him and make them happy. She or He, will sleep with us on those nights when we think things and feel cold or simply we want to stay in silent, hearing him breathe quietly.
