Laugh together and have fun together - if you regularly laugh together and have fun together great.
If you haven't done that for a while then try and get the fun back into your relationship.
Then have a calm discussion - sometimes if you don't agree you have to agree to differ.
Your partner has a right to their own opinion and their own views - just as you do - nobody has to be bullied into agreeing with the other person - agree to differ and compromise so you may not have it totally your own way but neither does your partner - try to sort differences out in a fair way for both of you.
If you have been hurt in a previous relationship that does not mean your new partner is going to hurt you.For a relationship to be healthy there has to be trust between two people and unless you have very good reason to believe your partner is betraying that trust, then for the sake of the relationship you need to try and put all other thoughts out of your mind.Tell yourself that your partner has chosen you to be with, your partner loves you. Try when you can to spend time together - try and get out of the house together - go for a meal, film, walk in the park, do some activity together, maybe some of the things you used to do when you first met, or just chill out in the evening with candles, take away meal and relax together.Just as you make time for the children or your work you need to make time for each other. Make time for this just as you did when you first got together.
