President Donald Trump has dated and been married to the most beautiful women in the world. They are Ivana Trump (his first wife) Anna Nicole Smith, Carla Bruni, Marla Maples (his second wife), and current wife Melania Trump, just to name a few. With this, we can assume he has gathered enough schemes to keep relationships work better and more effective.
Trump has three published memoirs, Trump: The Art of the Deal, Trump: Surviving at the Top, and Trump: The Art of the Comeback. These discuss in detail his relationships and experiences with women and marriage. Though his past relationships did not work, we can gain some tips that are definitely beneficial with relationship concerns.
Keep business out of marriage
Don’t work with your significant other. It can be a very sticky thing to get involved with, and it’s incredibly difficult to maintain a sane relationship when you both work and play together. Trump learned from his first marriage to Ivana that handing over part of his business to her was not the smartest move for their marriage.
My big mistake with Ivana was taking her out of the role of wife and allowing her to run one of my casinos in Atlantic City, then the Plaza Hotel. The problem was, work was all she wanted to talk about. When I got home at night, rather than talking about the softer subjects of life, she wanted to tell me how well the Plaza was doing, or what a great day the casino had. I really appreciated all her efforts, but it was just too much. . . I will never again give a wife responsibility within my business. Ivana worked very hard, and I appreciated the effort, but I soon began to realize that I was married to a businessperson rather than a wife.

You both have to want the same things
One of the most important things Trump will tell you is that a good relationship involves being on the same page and wanting the same things. Trump speaks about this as being the main reason why his second marriage to Marla Maples ended.
My marriage to Marla lasted three and a half years. Sadly, like so many couples these days, we drifted apart. Our lifestyles became less and less compatible. We wanted different things. Marla was content when it was just her, [their daughter] Tiffany, and me. I, on the other hand, realized that business needed to be taken care of constantly. When two people have such a difference in opinion regarding the lifestyle they want to lead, there is no longer any reason to stay together.

You either bring out the best or the worst in someone
This happens to be a huge indicator of knowing whether a relationship is right. When a relationship is right, you tend to bring out the best in each other. When it’s wrong, the opposite is true. Trump plainly realized this with a lot of the women he dated, which one can surmise is why the relationships probably never worked out. Trump reveals in his book, Trump: The Art of the Comeback:
“I don’t know why, but I seem to bring out either the best or worst in women.”
